Job? Check... still working for the same company (only my desk will be further away!).
Money? Er... well... we've done most of the spending required, spreading it out over a long period. Now that deposits in Australian banks are guaranteed, half of our savings is in Westpac (and moved at a better rate than it would have got a couple of months ago ).
Home? Well, we still own it, equity and all, and the rent is covering the mortgage and letting costs. Ain't gonna do no buying in Australia for a bit.

So you can follow a lot of the good advice and still emigrate.

Oh, and congrats on the meds, tiger!

Cheers

We're all doing the EXACT OPPOSITE!!!!

We might help Australia's economy

Did you hear that the PM just DOUBLED the discount for first time home buyers?!?! I think he's smart for being proactive. It's encouraging

OMG!!!

We have a CASE OFFICER!!!!!


I checked our status before going to bed. No Change.
Two hours later, I woke to find an email from our case officer
requesting further information (ACS Approval letter)

He asked me to send the ACS Approval letter by return email ASAP.

I immediately went to my "Australia" folder on my computer desktop, attached the PDF file of the scanned document (I swear I had attached it 6 months ago) and emailed it to our CASE OFFICER.

Then logged in to check our status. File states
APPLICANT BEING PROCESSED FURTHER!!!!

I checked the 2nd page and only my information is marked MET

Checked email again...

CO replied that I might be receiving some good news shortly.......

Woke DH to tell him WE HAVE A CASE OFFICER!!!

Went back to bed but could NOT SLEEP!!!!

JUST CHECKED EMAIL NOW........


and

there's ANOTHER EMAIL from my CASE OFFICER!!!

In this email, he states I should check "The Browser"

Logged in to check status

APPLICANT APPROVED!!!!!

WOO HOO!!!! WE HAVE OUR VISA!!!!!

We must enter country by 23 September, 2009 -

NO WORRIES!!!!

Flights Booked - CHECK! (Fly out 18 November, 2008)

Holiday Rental - CHECK! (Reservations Confirmed!)

Hi Tiger,

Had to congratulate you on the April thread also!

BTW, why haven't you updated BEupdate yet? Somebody has to give you a hard time about that one, thought it might as well be me! Enjoy going to yellow, you waited long enough for it!
