They're giving a processing time of "at least 8-9 months"...
Let's hope it's in the lower end of that estimate!

It's really interesting - there's been no further conversation about those emails people received, and I still have no idea why some people got them and others didn't. Crazy.

Yeah that's really weird, where did you hear some people saying it? Assuming it has to apply to those yet to apply...wishful thinking it's not us near the end perhaps!

Well, it can't apply to those yet to apply... because otherwise DIBP wouldn't have their information to send emails. But who knows - could be all those who applied after a certain date, or from high-risk countries, or with meds that were referred, or who have blonde hair... lol. No way to know. And I've seen mention of it a few different places, one of which was a UK-specific immigration board (if you want the name of it, you can PM me).

Oh yeah makes sense, wondered if it was going out with acknowledgement emails or something. Ha very true... Similar to the differences in grant times perhaps, doesn't seem to be any pattern or logic! Oh well, not much that can be done other than wait I guess!

I've just passed the 5 month waiting point... It really starts to drag after a while, doesn't it! Have heard nothing from my CO since I submitted my medicals and Police check 2 months ago, so I'm taking it as no news is good news!

Can't wait until I get the good news email and can then start planning the future!

rholmes and I did a little digging (thanks rholmes!), and it seems those posting on the UK-specific forum, actually applied through Pakistan. I checked a few other places, and in the few other instances I'd seen they were all apparently actually Pakistan applicants posting in London threads. That's good news for you guys, thankfully. It means your processing times aren't about to go up!
