Well, it's been a while since the last time i wrote. I was so busy coz job; thx god my visa was granted on may this year (after almast 3 years of waitting). I had to go to OZ in august to activate it.
I went to Melbourne and Sydney; and i loved both. I think I like Sydney more, the weather in Melb is so crazy but nice too.
I was shocked when i saw there are not a lot of people... here in Mex is so crowded, so when i arrived to Melb I asked to myself "Where is everybody?¡¡¡" :p
I'm planning to move there next may. I'm so excited and so nervous as well.

I was there 2 weeks only and i felt lonely. I think thats the hardest thing that i'm gonna face. But this change is necesary.

Well, right now gotta back to work. I just wanna share these news with people that really understand what get the visa granted mean. lol

Saludos¡¡¡

Hi mohit2903.

I do not remember exact dates (i do not have my time line on this lap top) but I can tell you that i started the process on june 2006. It was on sept 2008 when i got into migration office and i got the visa grant letter on may 2009... ummm.. no.. i think it was really on march, yea it was on march; thats why my limit entrance was on august. I have the permanent resident visa, so i went to activate it and i'm planning going back next may.

What about u?

Congratulations.... 3 years is way toooo much time, as long as you got your visa and liked the place you are mooving to, I would say its worth it.

Hola, Uligargon!

I lived in Mexico City for a few years. That is one crowded city.

Considering that the entire population of Australia is only slightly larger than the population of the Mexico City metropolitan area, I can imagine that your experiencing some wide-open-sidewalk shock. :)

Best of luck in Oz. Congratulations!

Hi uligargon, congratulation on your visa grant.
Btw, austimeline website has been down for sometime now. Is there any other website that has the same purpose as austimeline?
I think it is good for somebody to see the progress of other applicants to see how the progress on each Visa category.

uligargon.......

Congrats on getting Visa 175.
I think you liked Australia in the first visit itself.
