This is going to be a very quiet forum if they stick to the 10-14 month processing time! No grants for at least 4 weeks! (20th May going from when the timeframe changed from 20th July applicants). Still can't believe the timeframe changed so dramatically -8-9 months to 10-14 months is a massive difference. Wonder is a year from now, timeframes will be up to 20 months processing...?

Hi All

I take it there is still no news of anyone who applied after July 21st (therefore subject to the 10-14 month waiting period) being granted their spouse visa out of London?

Quick question, how do I know if Immi received my medicals or not. I did mine three weeks ago and the hospital said they would pass them on but is there any place I can check that they have actually been received. I checked my account but it doesn't seem to mention anywhere.

Hi

The system update seems to have removed that piece of information, as mine has since disappeared. If you applied online they will have uploaded them and your results get to Australia instantly. If you applied by post it obviously takes a little longer, as they have to get there the old fashioned way.

I would give them a call this afternoon between 1-4pm on 0207 420 3690, the wait times are never usually too bad.

You wont be to be told the actual results only if you satisfy the criteria for the visa that you have applied for. They are meant to feed back via your GP if there is a problem so no news will hopefully be good news as they say.

I did mine two weeks ago when I phoned up they told me if you go into emedical and reprint the referral letter it will have changed to add your photo that they took and will list all the tests as completed.

Mine was updated about a week after I took the medical.

That's strange. Just checked mine it's still there.

It's in emedical itself there's nothing helpful on immi since the update.

If in doubt I'd just give the London office a ring. They were super helpful when I asked about it.

This is kinda bad but I actually don't mind my application taking long to process. My 10 month waiting time is September 10th and I will be in Australia at that time until the end of the month and I really don't want to have to cancel flights and rebook them. I can't actually leave Ireland until November because I want to attend my graduation and so would be fine waiting till then which would be a year.

As soon as my partner's visa is granted, we're booking flights for the next week and going. Cannot wait to get home! I hope London starts granting again soon. Berlin's already processing middle of September applications!
