Now, it's your turn to predict for me!

Meds were sent 14 oct but by snail mail, at the moment this is what tracking says as of yesterday:



Your item, posted on 14/10/08 with reference R**********GB has been passed to the overseas postal service for delivery in AUSTRALIA.


So i'm guessing they haven't left this country yet... I'm going to email CO to let her know they've been posted so she can keep an eye out for them!! Could do with Visa asap, like everyone else, what we really want to know is validation date, may have to change flights that we have booked.....if possible..

So, c'mon then, whats your prediction??

OK it took both my MEDS and DHs MEDS 21 days to clear. So we know it's 21 days from the time the package arrives in Sydney.

Your package left on the 14th - so about 1 week travel time - gets it there say the 21st/22.

So I predict the 12th of November.

We are in the same position (meds sent this week hopefully) so should get some news in 3 weeks or so.
Unlike you though I woun't be able to check in the middle of the night for e-mails (you have such dedication ) as we will be on holiday.
Fingers crossed it may be 11th November which is my birthday, the bets are on!

Thanks Charlene -

You know there was a stretch when people went on Holiday and that's when the VISA came.

I just checked my email in the night - I didn't check my status until I saw the email. Then I was curious as to what it looked like

I knew things were ripe for change!

As I am a July applicant, I will be moving the count to the July 2008 thread. Think it makes sense to move it as time moves on so I can hand it over when I get my visa next week (yes, I know I am dreaming but it's Friday-give me a break!).

Likewise the unofficial count has moved geographically, from Wisconsin to the metropolis that is the south coast of Ireland Please prepare yourselves for lots of icons as yes, Guinness is the best drink in the world and I will not hear a word said against it.

Hopefully I will do as good a job as Tiger did, I certainly will give it my best shot!
You're off to a great start, lilsweets!!!

YES Guinness is a great way to toast a VISA GRANT!

I'm not sure how celebratory it is to toast with a nice glass of MILK (which is what Wisconsin is known for - it's the DAIRYLAND STATE)

Both are missing fizz! Maybe we should compromise and both stick with the champagne.
