Hi all - it looks like there are some very quick 2017 approvals! I submitted some additional information requested by my CO at the beginning of the month (within the 3 days stipulated), and all other facets of my application are complete (medical, police checks). We were requested to provide a 10 year address history (both me and sponsor).
Does anyone else have experience of the 'additional information' piece (not necessarily for this type of evidence) and what happens after? Thanks!

Sorry for the delay.

I had a request for an additional statement on countries that I have lived in (last 10 years, more than 12 months). I just supplied the the statement they asked for and never heard of it again. About 1.5 months later I receievd the "please leave AUS, we're ready to grant the visa"-letter.

It's normal that they request additional information if they feel they need more details. You should be glad it was only administrative info and not the request to provide more relationship evidence...

Having contact with your CO within a few weeks of lodgement is very quick (took about 3.5 months for us). Maybe you're in for a quick grant as well?

Thanks so much, JanneKL, that's really helpful! No update/additional communication from CO as yet, hoping that no news is good news...

Seems like there aren't many people who applied through London on the boards at the moment... this thread has seen more active times....

Most likely more people go looking for somewhere to get support when the process runs 8-12 months. Those of us in USA are a little jealous of the UK timelines right now!
