I replied that nobody had contacted me or my agent (Go Matilda) and the guy replied that the note had only been written that day (questionable?) I asked if that meant my visa has been approved but he just said that nothing can be approved while I'm in Australia and that I should head to Auckland asap with my passport to finalise the visa......I don't want to get overconfident but surely this means a grant?
I wasn't even notified of a case officer!
So the time elapsed has been 4.5 months, which my agent said is fairly quick at the moment.

I'm soooo excited that I can (possibly) begin to start working and saving for our wedding on 14th April. My agent said I shouldn't fly to Auckland till she receives the letter just to be safe. Expecting to fly mid-late next week.....

My agent emailed to let me know that she had received the pre-grant letter and that I needed to leave the country to get the grant so flights booked for Tuesday

Thumbs up Brasilia - 6 months

Date of application: 24 April 2011

Received acknowledgement letter: 3 May 2011

Nationality: Brazilian

Visa type: PMV 300

Offshore/onshore: Offshore, Brasilia

Medicals submitted (yes/no): Yes

Police check submitted (yes/no): Yes

Date CO assigned: 3 May 2011

Date visa granted: 24 October 2011

Visa took just under 6 months. We were told to expect it in November and it came a week early, a pleasant surprise. No interview was required. No AoS was asked for. Medical, police checks and Form 80 were requested in June. The whole process was relatively trouble free, we are very happy!
