thanks too, yes i agree! i was told it can take 6-7 weeks for the assessment of medicals i was surprised it was all done in only 4 weeks. i guess if they don't ask for any more documents it is the last step Fingers crossed they won't ask for an AoS

I think the last step is assessing the finances. So, if an AoS is needed, it's usually asked for right at the end. And, granting seems to be a condition of passing the AoS assessment, if one is asked for.

So contacted our CO yesterday and said to them that HOC has assessed all medicals and sent results to embassy, and CO said that "character and security checks" still need to be done. CO said that external agencies do those checks and they have no control of the timefreames taken to do those checks :-( CO said they aim to finalise my gfs application in November/December. We applied 26th May 2011. So looks like it is a minimum of a 5 - 6 month wait for a EASY application :-( Last time is saw my gf face to face was 1st November 2010 :-( So to answer your question - After medical checks are done - it is security and character checks (and then maybe financial). Augenblick.
