Hiya Guys,

We finally get to say "WE GOT OUR VISA'S"


Got woken at 4:47am by Marks Aus employer to say that the visa had been approved. WOW we're walking around with a big smile on our face and can't stop hugging ourselves.

I will update the time line. But just a quickie. The visa got retracted in september because of all the new visa 457 conditions and a new application was put in on Monday 7th December and we got the approval today, Friday 11th December. House is sold and hopefully by mid Jan we're on our way to OZ :plane:

Lots of love and best wishes all your way and hope to those that are still waiting.

Satty :love::love:

wow, congratulations..
start packing now :)

Thanks Anj, I just rang my mum as she's visiting India. i thought she was going to be upset as we didn't get to say goodbye properyly but she was so happy for us and even said she's going to try and do a stopover in oz before she heads back to UK. It's his parents reactions that I'm worried about.

As for packing we've just put up all the xmas decs... lol

With all my heart I hope you get your good news soon as you deserve it the most.

Thanks Anj, you're so sweet. She lives in Ludhiana but will be visiting Delhi as has friends there. At the moment she's visiting the temples etc as she wanted to get blessings for her children, well I did ring her and say it worked.

Thanks Anj, I will PM you later on when my feet touch the ground again and find out when mum is in Delhi as she'll love to just pop past and say hi. Beware though, my mum will end up adopting you and help "sort your life out" as Indian mothers do. But she's real sweet at heart.

Hi Dolly, it's a Brilliant feeling and it feels as if we won the lottery. We were so close to quitting at one point as had started seeing houses as planned to move in UK. And then they get their act together.

Can't wait and I'm going to go shopping for lots of Marmite so if anyone needs to place an order let me know...... lol, just hope customs will understand

Hi Anj, We live in the UK, british born, but I am punjabi. My mum still has a house in Ludhiana and visits every year. Last time I visited India was 15 yrs ago and was planning on taking my family there but then this came up. It'll be another 2 yrs before we get our PR before we can finaly visit. I still love Chandigarh as it's very modern...lol
