I think I might get just as excited as all of you when you get your visas!! When the next wave of grants come through, I will send an update to this thread. If you want to be added or I made a mistake, please let me know.

haha love it MJAus! I actually feel exactly the same way when I see successful visa's being granted! So definitely cheering everyone on also! But seriously it's great that you put this together, so thank you on behalf of everyone on here! Looking forward to the next wave of visa's..I think the last set all came around the 24th of April? so maybe 24th of May is the day we can all celebrate haha

I was thinking the same thing. The last two months had visa grants the last week of the month.

The 300, 309/100, and 820/801 are all lumped together into one global processing time...12 to 16 months is so disheartening. I think we are all depressed now.
It's extremely frustrating to see so many others being processed so much faster than people who have applied via the US and to not even have separate processing times anymore.

Yes she did call the Washington DC office. I also agree phone call prob will not help as the person she spoke to was not helpful at all in providing any information.

Good list MJAus!2018 as this will give us a clearer picture.

If you want to make it on the list I posted previously, please specifically state that you applied from the USA. Sometimes people from other countries post on this thread (which is totally fine). I just don't want to make any assumptions. I also like it when y'all display your home country flags!

Random thoughts:
Just a little funny comment....my daughter teases my husband about some of the phrases he uses and some of the things she has heard in Australia. This is one of her phrases..."I reckon it will be heaps of fun!" Is "reckon" and "heaps" universal for Australia or is that just my Aussie family and friends? I definitely know that "no worries" is VERY common.

It's been fun seeing the differences in our countries. For instance, Rice Krispies are Rice Bubbles, Lay's potato chips (well crisps) are Smith's (we had to research that because Lay's are my favorite), fries are hot chips, torches are flashlights, shopping carts are trolleys, I love that exit signs are way out signs (duh) - and who would have thought you would spell tire with a "y" (tyre), although y's are prettier than i's to write. I'm still trying to figure out what exactly a jumper is because it seems like any warm, long-sleeved shirt is a jumper. Also, accents...my Utah American accent seems so boring. I just love that Aussie accent. Hopefully, one day soon I can enjoy Australia every day!!

I'm from Florida and everyone here thinks I'm Canadian. Reckon would be used in southern slang but definitely an all around thing here from what I've seen. We used no worries back home too but not as cool as the Aussie accent way, haha. Everyone seems to like to add "hey" to the end of their sentences too.

Yeah, I thought the same about jumpers and was corrected by my partner when I called a hoodie a jumper. Basically a pullover sweater is a jumper lol.

It's funny how some name brands are the same but the name is different (Streets here is Good Humor in the US) but what throws me even more is when something is labeled the same but tastes and looks completely different (Froot Loops are different colors and don't taste the same). Funny how the ingredients in most of the same products differ so much.

I still crack up when I see a speed hump sign. Looks like a hat to me. And crosswalk signs... where's the rest of the body?

Hi! 🙂 we also applied from the USA. We lodged Oct 26 2017. Please include us in the list.

Been following this forum for awhile now. Really hoping all of our visa grants come soon.
