Great to have a read through the thread.
I was eligible to apply on 7 June 2016. I applied a week earlier (so late April) and can see on the Online Immi account that it has been received but not yet assigned to a case officer.
I went back to the original email when they said I could apply for PR
and it says Processing times are 6-8 months. Has this since changed?
Thank you in advance for any comments
