You know, I celebrated very early than required. I read many posts on this forum, saying that CO was assigned minimum 25 weeks from the date of lodgment. I never knew that the person sending the acknowledgement letter is not the exact CO.

The person's address was like this
First name, last Name
Visa Processing Officer
Email: [email protected]
Position number: 123456789
Australia High Commission
Nairobi, Kenya.

My application was sent from Australia through post by My immi agent addressed to the Australia high Commission, Nairobi. They have received on 15th July 2014, then this VPO has sent on 16th July two letters to my agent , 1-acknowledgement letter, 2- Request for Bio-metric data letter

In the later, the person was saying "I" to refer herself(female) request you to provided bio metric data within 14 days at Australia Visa Application Center in Nairobi".

I Provided my Biometric data on 22nd July. I have heard since then from them.

A friend of mine who is currently in QLd, has applied at AHC, Nairobi, in 2011. within the first week, he was called, interviewed given the medical forms and was told during the interview that the lady was her case officer.

Because of all the above circumstances, I thought that the sender was my CO.That is my fault, What a poor applicant I am!

This clarification in fact was desperately needed by me and even others who will celebrate early for nothing.

Thanks Becky, I appreciate this
Lovely weekend to you.
They could be your co. Every embassy works differently. Becky and you both applied at different embassy's so different ways things are done.

My husband applied in Cairo where the person who emails the acknowledgement letter is your case officer.

One thing to remember too about Kenya is that from what we have seen on this forum the wait is around 18 months due to the wait on security checks.

Just remember what happened in 2011 may not be how do they things in 2014.
