Dear All

The long wait is finally gone.The day of reckoning has arrived.Here is the good news to share.

I have received an email from my CO as a pre-Grant.

Thanks to all the members and moderators for this wonderful forum.It's such an informative site that it's link must be put up on DIAC's official website

Your valuable suggestions/Comments are strongly needed.What should be my options regarding the email below?

Here is the exact email

""Dear Mr Gillgee,

I refer to your application for visa subclass 175, and advise that the
internal processing is now complete.

I have been able to apply a short extension to your medicals and police
clearance certificate, however please note that if I proceed to grant your
application, the date by which you would need to make an initial entry into
Australia would be 10 January 2011. Please note that there is no minimum
time that you must remain in Australia after you enter, you only need to
arrive on or before that date to activate your visa.

Could you please advise if you would be able to meet this timeframe. If
you cannot, you will need to obtain and provide a new police clearance
certificate. If that is done, the initial entry date would be 8 June 2011.

Please advise what you would like to do. Your response within 7 days from
the date of this email would be appreciated.

Congrats Gillgee,
so you are preparing for new PCC or availing option of 10th January entry? As I have noticed booking tickets is difficult and purchasing would be costlier now than you go couple of months later.

Many congratulations, very nice to see Pakistani EE, getting GSM..

it will be your very personal decision, to set priority. i can think of following:

New PCC:
Easy to get, not a bid deal
DIAC will re-assess this PCC again?
something can change during, circumstance or policy (complicate)?
Expensive ticket, most probably it will be validation trip ($$$)

10 Jan:
safe as house, you will get immigration ASAP
need some time to get visa stamped too
can have a look at things during validation trip and than come back with full plan, plenty of time for that

you can rank and set score for each option and than decide.....

Guys, Yesterday I had strange call from Australia, the Person who was talking to me verified my name and said he contacting me regarding my GSM application.Then unforunately the call was cut off.Is it possible that he was my case officer ?or what does that mean?. I applied on 03/08/2009 as accountant (MODL).
Regards.
