We did an online application in Feb 2017, and next day we were asked to go for a medical and bio-metrics, then 4 weeks later they sent us an txt and en email stating that the decision has been made.., when we contacted the VISA center they confirm that too and we were asked to call the high commission in Colombo. when we did contact them, they admitted that the txt and the email was sent in error due to a glitch in the system.
Then we received a letter in early April 2017 stating "initial assessment on your application has now been completed and it has progressed to the next stage", not sure what this means..

Did anybody receive this letter and how long did you have to wait after this letter?

Queued Letter Regarding the Process
This correspondence is to advise you that an initial assessment on your application has now
been completed and it has progressed to the next stage. Please note 75% of applications
are processed in 11 months and 90% of the applications are processed in 15 months. Once
reached the top of the queue and there is sufficient information for a decision to be made,
a case will proceed with a assessment of the application. A case officer may contact you at
that time to verify that it is ongoing

Thank you all and good luck!!

I did apply for the visa in feb 2017 and I got the same msg from vfs. When I investigated immi cmb said the same thing to me. Early april my husband was contacted and requested for his police report.

Now we wait which is really frustrating.
