Default VISA in the Passports!!! YAY

Hi all

Just to let you know... visas are in the passports and we officially have our residency!

Great feeling!

All the best to everyone who is still waiting.

Funny story at the embassy collecting our visas. There was a couple there who got handed their passports with visa's. The first thing the gentleman said was "excuse me, but this visa expires".... the consular staff then undertook a lengthy explanation about the 5 year entry period and that they would only become Aus Citizens after two years living in the country... YIKES! Were shocked that people don't know things like this? Or maybe I am too harsh?

Anyway, all the best to everyone.

Thanks to all the advisors on the boards

You'd be surprised how ignorant some people are. There is a brief explanation on how "permanent" PR visas are in the FAQs.

Congrats on getting your visas.
