Default Abbreviations

Hi folks,

Have been on this forum for a little while now and have seen a few abbreviations mentioned a few times that I have not heard of or know the meaning of

Could someone possibly provide details/meanings of some of the most common abbreviaitions you are likely to see/hear during the Visa application process.

As an example: OC, ETA, ACS etc etc.

Very much appreciated.
P.

I was always taken with the phrase SLUG... was disapointed when I heard it was a garage!!
I did once see an advert fro a property on Domain that said the property came with "an in-ground poo"
I presume they meant "pool"

You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to iPom again.

I know... I tried to send it again and it told me I couldn't give K on the same post twice...

I need a coffee.
