We got an email recently having done the health check to say thay had everything , no need to upload anything else and they were now processing the workload in order of receipt etc etc and reminded me that the time frame is 10-14 months from date of application.

We're really hoping for a positive decision soon.. its hopefully not far off now! these last weeks are the toughest i think!

Best of luck to all

thanks

james
Hmmm we didn't get an email to say that they have everything hopefully the medical went through.
We applied 15 October so was really hoping for approval soon. We are not planning on moving for at least another year but want to book a trip home , maybe at Xmas, to activate hubbys visa but holding off until hubby gets visa before booking and the flights keep getting more expensive!

I haven't found the wait for the visa too bad but now we are at the pointy end its much harder!

I have not heard of any one else getting an email (unless it's for more additional information of course) so I wouldn't be too worried about that.

We applied on the 12th Oct and are SO is VF. Completely agree with you that the wait has been fine but it's starting to drag now.

Hey James

Welcome to the forum, we applied on December 1st and I am already finding the waiting tough. Hearing about other peoples approval on this forum helps though there have been very few of late.

PJD we have the some case officer. Fingers crossed you hear something soon.

Hi All !
And thanks for the replies, its good to know there are other people in the same position! Aplogies... our visa was actually lodged 23rd Oct 2014 rather than 2015 as I previously wrote.... it seems like an age ago! Our CO is KC and am checking my email alot these days in the hope of seeing 'that' email from her! I suppose its just a case of waiting now..... and watching the price of flights ... and the exchange rate!

We will all be eagerly waiting with fingers crossed for those of you who applied in Sept to get positive news .... and hopefully those of us who lodged in Oct won't be far behind!

James

Ok guys, so i sent off an email to my CO at 11:25 this morning asking for a general update considering we are at 10 months on Sunday.
30 minutes later there was a response VISA GRANTED

To describe us as ecstatic is an understatement.

Good luck to all you out there.

Hello everyone

Really great reading everyones experiences, helps a lot. Me and my partner applied a month ago before the prices went up and haven't heard anything yet. How long does it normally take to get assigned a CO? Does the 10-14 month wait start when you get assigned a CO or when they received your application?

Thanks for any answers
