I applied last week and I've checked daily from any response to request medicals etc....

Am seeing usually for London the first CO contact is taking at least 3 months. Is that right?
We heard from our co after 8-9 weeks requesting more info and then they asked for our Medicals/police checks after 11 weeks.

We applied 1 April for a PMV from London. We have a immigration consultant helping us and he said that co don't generally make contact before 6 weeks. Ours was longer than six weeks :)

Thanks for the reply.

I'll more than likely have both police and medical uploaded before first contact so will be interesting to see what they say.

If you don't mind, what additional info did they need?

If I got an approval on Wednesday I would be over the moon...fingers crossed!

Our immigration agent asked us for everything we could possibly require to submit upfront but then only submitted pics, statements and proof of travel. He filled in one of our forms incorrectly so the co asked for that again and passport pics and then finally the police and medical checks. Think we'd have been better off applying ourselves in hindsight!

Finger and toes crossed would u mind me what agent u use and what u think our agent hasn't had any contact with us it always been me doing the email and finding things out I just think all that money we paid and one email a week or a month would be good just for a pice of mind

Yes we had the same thing....all that money and they don't even answer our calls or emails! So frustrating. We used a well known specialist in London. How about you?

Hi all, just to let you know we had our 309 granted today, so it's very exciting news :) I just logged into my email to see the email from DIBT sitting there.

It is exactly 5 months to the day we applied so we are delighted.

This is our information. We're married 9 years, with one child who is already an Australian citizen (by descent)

Date of Online Lodgement: 20/04/16
Medicals & PC: Supplied with application
CO: Allocated 15/06/16
Visa Granted: 21/09/16
No agent used. No correspondence other than the one email saying we had a case office alllocated and then the actual visa grant.

Thanks so much to everyone on this forum, it's a fantastic resource, you have all been such an amazing help.

Good luck everyone.

My impatience got the better of me today and having lots of unused minutes left on my phone which I was going to lose shortly. I rang the European service centre to ask if they would update me on my 309's progress and the lady said it was all finalised, they did not need any further details and I would just need to wait a little longer for the visa to be issued. That's all she would tell me, so I'm quite chuffed.
