Hi Dawn, we go on the 22nd October from Manchester - getting really nervous now

Sorry to hear you've not had any luck with the house - have you tried using another agent?

We have been here for 3 years - and have qualified for citizenship today!!

Love it here... but we struggle when meeting another brit (which isn't often) its really wierd, run out of conversation in 3 minutes!

With most aussies (there are some exemptions) they seem to ramble enough for you to enjoy the company.

I`m not getting at anyone I hope, just an observation.

Actually our best mates moved from uk to just up the road - we don't really have much in common anymore - shame.

It took us 10 months to get everything together to apply for the visa and then 7 months exactly to get the visa. Good luck!

Hi there, for visa timeline info checkout www.beupdate.co.uk/visagrants.php you'll be able to see how long all of the recent visa have taken to be granted.

Good luck with you application
