My wife and I just got today the news that our Australian Permanent Resident Visa was approved. It is a very happy moment for us.

I am living in Australia since March 2004 and it was a long way for me since I first got here. As many of you my Portuguese readers might remember from my post on “Perdido pelo Mundo” I came here to study English for 4 months then decide to extend my visa to study IT and at the same time got a part time job in IT too.

The year of 2006 was a great year I met my wife, I finished school I got my sponsor I got married. It was full of great things, the best year of my life so far.

Now 2007 is going to be the year that we became Australian Permanent Resident. And we are very happy to be part of this nation.
