Fellow patient waiters: do you always get an email when something happens with your application?

Is it worthwhile to obsessively log in to immiaccount every morning to see if something - anything! - has happened? Or just sit back and take a breath, wait for an email?

Personally? No, it's not worth it. Do I follow that advice? Of course not, haha. I check once in the morning and once in the evening. That's it. I check my spam folder in my email once a day too, just in case there is correspondence from the department in there.

Or just sit back and take a breath, wait for an email?
Based on what others have said, it's just best to sit back and take a breath. Relax and they will come to you if they need something or if a decision has been made on the visa.

Patience is key. That's all. We all want the same thing, some of us get it sooner than others, but we all just have to be patient.

Not really. Just look at all the posts about status changes or it says updated in November. None of it really means anything. My first visa I checked immi every day and the status never changed from received. Second visa, I didn't even bother checking. I just woke up to the golden email.

I would say check it once on the weekend in case you missed an email.

It's so much more rewarding to wake up and have a grant than to be obsessive and check several times a day! It's like the countdown to a birthday or Christmas or whatever... the more you think about it, the longer it seems to take!

When I first applied for the 820 the wait times were around 12-15 months, and there were no spurts of grants for people waiting 1-5 months like there are now. So it was easier for me to go for a month at a time without checking in the beginning because I knew no changes would occur for a while.

Now, I check immi every few days and am sure to check my email everyday in case something ends up in spam. I suggest doing what SkyblueBrewer wrote and resign to checking immi and your email spam folder once a week; it will probably make things easier for your stress wise in the long run!
