Congratulations Penguina!! Very happy for you. We are still waiting, haven't heard anything from our case officer yet, but we did do the police checks and health checks which have been received. I'm still hoping to get my kids there by the start of the new school year, although it doesn't look promising. Enjoy yourself and your friends wedding!!

You should call them, that is what we did, it was after that we got a response. I emailed them last week to tell them about my travel plans and am still waiting on a reply, it is frustrating that we can still only send a general email as we don't have our C/O email yet, although we know her name, they wont give us her email.

When I emailed about travel plans to Canada in Sept., they didn't respond until after I got to Canada. This was before my CO actually contacted me.

I am hoping that again no news is good news, as ready or not Australia here I come

It seems to be if there is a problem that you hear from them so fingers crossed it is all ok, we are fortunate that we have enough money to go back and forth but that may change if they keep wasting it

Americas Service Centre

Telephone: (613) 216-7603

emailed inquires: Australian Immigration Email Enquiry Form for the Americas Region

That is it I have called there several times and they can contact Washington on your behalf. We know the name of our CO but still have no direct contact ability. Don't waste you time trying to ring the embassy in Washington directly, they wont put you through to anybody.
