We applied August 29th 2014, so 9 months 3 days. I was hoping it might come early when I saw others posting that they had received theirs.

When did you apply?

Hey dude,

My lodgement date is down as 5th September, so I'm hopeful of early grant on one hand, on the other I am expecting a potential later grant as I haven't seen anything granted for September just yet.

Well pleased for you, enjoy it all!!!

Cheers mate.

I reckon you will be fine, if they are processing late August applications now you shouldn't be far behind. Fingers crossed for you, I know how frustrating the wait is.

My partner had her medical assessment today, we applied december 1st 2014. What should we except now. So far the only correspondence we have had was an initial letter from her case officer introducing themselves. We applied by post, is there a way we can track our application online? I have also noticed a few posts where people have applied for their police check at the same time as their medical. She did her's before we appiled, did we do it to early?

Honestly dont expect much correspondance, the team on the phone in London said the less you hear the better. As you applied by post rather than online I'm not sure how you would track it, i would give them a call and ask - (0207) 4203690.

After my medical I heard nothing, I applied online and my status simply changed to say I'd met the criteria. I think you only hear if it is bad news

I got 3 emails throughout the entire process. The first was the automated acknowledgement, the second from my CO advising when to do my medicals etc and the final one was my grant.

Did you ever get a reply from this email address? I need to contact my CO to tell them I'm going to Oz on a tourist visa, but my CO has never contacted me ... I'm not sure who or where to email!

Hi there,

Just to be sure I would use both the email address family migration one, and would doubly use the contact form on the website and quote all details case officer, client ID etc.

I personally have used the email address when I was replying to aomething that a desperate case officer sent to me about supplying further details even though I had already declared them in the original form. I got an email straight back and 4 or 5 emails in conversation were had, so you do get replies, but I wouldn't be sure to rely on sending email straight off and expecting it to be received and logged.

Hope this helps you a little.

My hubby has had fairly prompt contact from his CO using the [email protected] address. We just addressed using the reference number etc that were sent by our CO when we got our initial letter.

I sent an email to that email address and the email title I used was the one from the email I got when they told me my CO. The next day I got an email back from my CO telling me that they had made note of those dates and they would next get in contact with me when a decision had been made.
