I called the London Embassy today to let them know I was going to Oz on holiday next month.

During the call I spoke about not having a CO yet to which I was then told that I have been assigned one. Reckons I may get contact too but London processing is definitely still 10-14 months - although did add some CO'S have been getting them turned around in 5-9 months.

Let's hope we all got one of the fast COs

Yes I emailed them before Xmas too and was told the same; we have a case officer but still the official waiting time is 10-14 mths. We were just relieved someone was looking at our application. We haven't heard anything so assume this is good news. Will let you know once the medical/police check are requested.

It's surprising you've not been asked for them yet given you did apply in August. Have you considered just doing them now? I mean there wouldn't be a risk of them expiring before grant as technically you've only got 9 months left to wait.

I saw a mid July granted from London in 5 months - one of the lucky ones.

Yes, I think we were just waiting to hear something, anything! We are going to look into at the end of this week anyway. We are leaving as soon as my son finishes his GCSEs in June, and are planning to travel around Asia to Oz so we want to get booking things now, etc. I know it's a bit of a risk but we can always wait in Asia until the visa has been granted.
I saw the lucky July applicant. This makes me think we must be soon, surely.

Fingers crossed once the request comes in then you'll get granted as soon as you submit the requested documents.

I'm on holiday in Oz next month and ideally wanted to be granted so I could activate then. If not then we are aiming for September.

I submitted the requested doc a month ago, my medical clearance was up on their system (and my immi account) a few days later, but no grant (notice to leave Australia for the grant) yet.

I don't think submitting the requested docs means you'll be granted the visa shortly after. I know there have been cases like that on the forum, but I don't think that's how it usually goes.

Ahhhhh ok. Well Janne you are on the 5 months mark shortly so will be interesting if that's when your grant comes in. Would be true to form then for the July grants we saw.

Yeah, fingers crossed. But I think with the holidays and many people having taken days/weeks off, there might be a delay.

I'm slowly going mad not being able to work. Might go to a Volunteering open day tomorrow. Maybe I can find something nice and useful to do!
