Default We have been approved!!!!

Hi all

We had an interview with our Visa officer this morning which went very well
-Many thanks to Flowerpot's thread on 'phone interview questions' !
We were told we would have a decision by the end of the week, had an email mid afternoon to say our status has now changed to approved!!!!

Oyster Bay is now flowing

Our dream is going to happen and we can't wait

Good luck to everyone whatever stage you are at

Dave and Helenx

Thanks, yes we are well chuffed and equally amazed at our timeline,
really not sure if the fact that we both previously worked in Auckland on working holiday visa ( < 30) and medicals went through has assisted in the speed of our application.
The Visa Officer who went through all the questions was Tom Firth.
Thanks

Congratulations both that was really quick. we were selected the same time as you with 125 points and no job offer unfortunately we had to go and get my wifes qualifications assessed and go back in the pool and since then it hasnt dropped low enough and we havent got points for skills shortage, but still seeing your result gives us hope. Hooray for you and hope to see you on the other side soon.

Not much, two emails and the interview. She's really nice. We've been approved last week.

She's on holiday leave this week (I know because I asked her for the passports to be renewed before visas are issued and I got out of office reply).

I am sure everything will be fine, I know how you feel.

Great news, we are going to submit EOI in June once I take some accounting exams, can I ask were you selected with no job offer and no skills shortage points? We would have 130 max but without either of the above too and am interested to know if anyone is getting picked that low down the pecking order so to speak?

They were picking that low last year, but for some reason this year it hasnt got down that far - any ideas

Hope everything goes well for you
