I've seen a few CO's names on here over the past few months, but I don't think I've seen ours on here---


Anyone else have the CO Lissa?

Well minor update. After sending an email asking for an update the CO responded and advised to proceed with police and health checks.

The specific instructions on the application is to wait until your CO tells you to go for the police/health checks. Why you need to chase them is pretty inefficient.

Anyway, here's hoping for a result shortly after we submit the remaining documents!

Hi there, we found that the information on different parts of the immi account didn't match up. For example the checklist we read said to submit police and medicals ASAP which we did but a week later when we were assigned a CO she said to wait until July (we applied in January). This process definitely tests your patience! I hope you hear something soon, good luck!

We applied for the police check before we submitted our application as we thought that it was required upfront, it now expires in 21 days and we still haven't had a response from the CO regarding if they will accept a new one and we email three weeks ago.

Oh Sharon, that's rubbish you poor thing! It is so frustrating not being able to do anything about it either, everything rests in someone else's hands- scary!! I hope your visa comes through soon or that someone at least gets back to you!!

That's great! I was thinking we were the only ones! We applied mid Feb, so hopefully one of us hears something in the next couple months
