MY VISA CAME THROUGH!
This has been the greatest week ever. The Department of Immigration just called to let me know that my FBI clearance came through, which means that my application for Permanent Residency has been approved! I’m now a totally 100% legal Australian resident. HOW GREAT IS THAT?
Oh, and hey! Since we applied under the “defacto spouse” category, I guess that kinda means that today is kinda like our wedding day! (Well, in the eyes of the Australian government, anyway.) And I didn’t even get to have a bachelorette party!
