Default VISAS have arrived on 1053rd day

Well the VISAS have arrived on the 1053rd day of waiting. Started our SW application back on 18th October 2005 never thinking this day would eventually arrive as I was just short of the points required. Sent our passports off Tuesday 26th August and VISAS arrived on Saturday 06th September.

OH and I are off to, don't laugh, GOLDEN in BC. We have just come back from recce trip and absolutley loved it there, so if anybody has settled there would love to hear your experiences or advice. Just need to sell a house now and then it is all systems go

The BE website has been so helpful, full of advice and useful information, so glad I found it. Thankyou, Lisa387

Thankyou Eamonn and Janet. We have just been staying with some friends in Okotoks while we were on our recce trip. They live in Westmount and really like it there. I could have settled there okay but my OH likes the country life and it was a little too built up for him. But thanks for your best wishes. Lisa

Congratulations!

They seem to be sending passports back pretty quick!

Ours arrived in London last Thursday, hopefully they will be returned to us just as fast!
