Was the request in your personal mail box or the immi mail box?

Well I am the authorised recipient for correspondence so I received an email to my personal email address advising us of correspondence received. In your immi account mailbox, there should be a "covering letter" as an attachment to your request for information which should be signed off with "Yours Sincerely, (Case Officer Name)"

What Laura said. Also the correspondence notification sent to the email addy should have a PDF attachment with exactly the same document they have uploaded in the correspondence section of the IMMI account.


Laura, I had a different CO. As far as I know we're not suposed to name our CO (not sure if that a forum rule). Usually people just use the initia(s).

Uhtred: there often is a delay. When I updated the timeline it didn't show right away. It usually took at least a day or so to register. No clue why.
Ahhh I've already been told when I called them that my CO is J. Glad you've been granted true to form on that 5 month mark.

Bit of luck I get mine around Feb 13th then I'll be one happy man.

How soon did you call to ask if you had a case officer Uhtred? Recently?

This waiting game totally sucks! We decided to get the ball rolling and book medical though - so sent the booking form off yesterday and they call within 24hrs to book an appointment - feels good to be doing something rather than sitting and waiting!

I called 2 weeks ago as wanted to query if I had to tell them I was on holiday to Oz in Feb. Would say I was just shy of 4 months since application.

Guy on the phone told me I did have a CO.

Yeah maybe call with another query but then just drop it in - they can't comment on how long it will take is all.

Just seen another forum, UK applicant applied 22 July had their grant today. The didn't front load and waited for CO request for Police and medical.
