I know your not asking me but we're selling everything, since we're moving in with my mom (she has furniture, beds etc) so no point in us taking it all .... we're just shipping small boxes of toys and stuff we dont want to get rid of.... using snail mail i guess LOL.

lol... I am honestly asking anyone and everyone.

I have lived in Aus before, (my visa expired during our time back here) , I know that being so close to Asia, things like furniture, beds etc are cheaper there than it would be to ship the stuff I have here. We noticed that as well last dec when we were there.. so there is no point in paying to ship my sofa and bed when I can buy new for less than shipping it..

We do have some keepsakes that we would want to ship, and some of the kids stuff.. most of the stuff we don't sell or ship will have to wait in my dad storage unit until we come back to visit I guess...

When I moved to Aus the 1st time I just had a bag of my clothing, when we came back to TX we had sold EVERYTHING and came here with just 5 suit cases (and a new born)-- Now that we are a family of 5 I don't think we will get away so light.

Heats we have started to look into shipping for our stuff. From Chicago to Melbourne we have been getting quotes around $2500 mark for a 4 foot wide by 7 foot deep by 7 foot high crate.I would love to hear too if any others have shipping company suggestions

We used a moving company (White Glove Express, out of New Jersey I think, but they can arrange to pick up and deliver to anywhere), but I had much more than just a single box, so our quote wouldn't be comparable. They were good, but not great. I will say - NONE of our stuff arrived damaged, and it involved some heirloom family china, which is AMAZING. But I didn't feel they fully communicated some of the charges we'd be hit with when the stuff arrived here, and I found them hard to get in touch with sometimes.

Has there been any updates to your list of waiters? I know we are only 1/3 -1/2 (3 months) way waiting but wondered if any has been approved (or even got a CO) lately .. Like everyone just trying to get a gauge on the current wait time. I feel like I am at the queue at six flags for a new ride, can't see the front and have no clue how long It is 😁

List was up to date with the exception of adding you, which I just fixed. Those approved most recently are at the bottom of that post under "visas granted."

Thanks! I will keep you up to date... Man I hope the 5-7 months is the time line and not the 9 + we were told. It's been almost 3 so far.

Yeah, I hope so too! It'd be nice if that trend would continue!

I emailed DIBP to query current processing times so we can be realistic in arranging wedding date and was told 12 -15 months!!! This is crazy!


I am from a high risk country though I will be applying through Washington since I currently reside in USA.

I guess because of the high risk you get to wait longer... Where are you from if you don't mind me asking?
