Thanks for the reply sounds reasonable. We don't need to move for ten to twelve months so nine month processing would be ok but girlfriend is a teacher and must resign by end of may so hope to have an indication before then that it's going to Brent approved

The current processing time is 8-9 months from the date of lodgement of your application. Your application was lodged on 9 August 2012."


If anyone has a more "chatty" CO, it would be great to see what they say

Thanks
Hi I have applied on the first of august and have recieved an email saying mid febuary to late march and also my CO was not very chatty can I ask you if your CO is KP ..? he doesnt seem to say much or reply to that much only generic responses

Hi andyjjjj

My CO is PS, so not the same. But I spoke to him the first time today and he said I might get it by the end of March, which is just a little less than 8 months.

What's your status?

Cheers and good luck!

Hi andyjjjj

Got some amazing news. I got my visa granted! As I will be travelling to Australia on Saturday he approved it for me so I will not have to leave the country again. So very happy, as they always told me 8-9 months!

And the long waiting period is almost over for you as well!
