No news regarding anymore July applications? Maybe they have completed them all?

Here is hoping the August applications get processed at the end of April, and next month. Which would make the London and Berlin embassy 1 month ahead of the stated 10-14month processing times.

Are there any other July or August applications? Or just us?

My partner will be applying in 2 weeks time.
9 months already...? We are preparing for 10-14 months (according to their website).

London and actually visa granted overnight! 3 days shy of being exactly 9 months... We were the last app bunch that were given 8-9month estimate, everyone who applied post-July 2014 has been given 10-14months time-frame. There are strict approval quotas that the current government keeps decreasing plus there is an increase in the number of applications submitted hence the increased wait time. I don't agree with it, especially for families like us who've been married for over 8 years, together 15 years, kids etc etc who just want to go home! It is what it is. If I were you I'd work towards the estimate of 14months. Good luck to you and everyone else!

Congrats with the VISA Austin2015!!!

The question a lot of people have is that July applications are being processed in April.

August applications are next and they have been told its 10-14 months. Which would make the earliest they will process them is June up until the latest being October.

So what are the Berlin and London embassy's doing in May exactly? Thats an entire month where they will potentially not process any VISA's at all. And if they go all the way up until the 14 month mark it wont be until October!!!!

What happens to the August applications will dictate what happens to the rest of the applications going forward. There is a chance we could have 1 to 5 months of no VISA's being granted at all. Which is a bit concerning.

Question Immi website

Hi All

I just logged in to my immi account and was suprised to see on the first page that it now says assessment in progress? On the second page showing all of the evidence uploaded the section that previously said that i had met the health criteria is no longer present.

Does anyone know if that means my application is moving forward or simply a slight change in terminology as the webiste looks to have had a bitnof a refresh?

Cheers
S

It seems they've updated their terminology. I've seen numerous posts here and on another forum about the status changing to "Assessment in progress".

My policce report arrived today and my medicals were done last week, now we play the waiting game.

This Thursday will be 5 months and three weeks since we applied so hopefully only four more months and a week until it's approved.

I am clinging to the fact that if it was going to be rejected, they would have rejected it by now. I see no reason for a rejection but my fiance and I did meet online 7 years ago when I was 15 so that may raise some eyebrows.
