Where by 'may be interested' I mean I'd like to ask you questions about your planning process/resources, since you'll be doing it first!! :-P

After hearing that processing times were now 12-15 months, we wrote an email to DIBP asking for more specific information on my application. To my total surprise, my CO (first contact) wrote back to tell me it was on track to be finalised in November, and since I was in Sydney on my ETA, that I needed to make travel plans to leave Australia, and notify her of my plans. I left the country immediately!! Today, I received my emailed Grant Letter!! My CO was RM. She was very professional in her communications.

I woke my fiancée at 2 AM in Sydney with the news. What a happy call, tears, laughing, new plans.

I've already completed all my preparations here in the States, so I'm going back to Sydney this week!!

CONGRATULATIONS!!!

This brought tears to my eyes too….. So very happy for you Jersey.

Long distance relationships are tough and I honestly don't know how people managed to do it for so long when you had to wait upon a letter and a photo, I think it's awful enough with Skype and text! But when you hear of others getting to the final stage it brings joy to the heart and I think we each take a little of the celebration cheer back to our partners knowing one day it will hopefully be us. So thanks for sharing and good luck with the wedding plans and your happily ever after.

Yeay! Congratulations Emkas! Good to know it wasn't a 15 month wait for you. Maybe there is hope...

Congratulations on your visa, though you may be disappointed to know there is no Thanksgiving in Australia, however it is celebrated by the U.S. expat community so with a bit of luck you might be able to get an invite to one of their functions.
