You'll just need your transaction number which your agent should have given to you. Then they take your date of birth and look in your file. It's a UK number.

It is exactly 5 months to the day we applied so we are delighted.

This is our information. We're married 9 years, with one child who is already an Australian citizen (by descent)

Date of Online Lodgement: 20/04/16
Medicals & PC: Supplied with application
CO: Allocated 15/06/16
Visa Granted: 21/09/16
No agent used. No correspondence other than the one email saying we had a case office alllocated and then the actual visa grant.

Thanks so much to everyone on this forum, it's a fantastic resource, you have all been such an amazing help.

Good luck everyone.
This is the second grant I've seen this week where it's only taken 5 months. Perhaps they're getting faster or that easier applications are being pushed through.

Congrats anyway

Thank you! It does seem to be most partner visas from the London office are taking between 5-6 months. Wishing you all lots of luck and speedy visa grants 😊

Out of curiosity, any London applicants apply within the last 2 months and have had their CO assigned?

July/August/Sept applicants would be great to know what happened and when.
