I hope you get assigned a CO soon so they can start school with all the other kids.

Thanks Penguina. We received an email a week after we submitted saying we were assigned a CO, but we haven't been contacted. Fingers crossed it will happen soon.

The first email is usually just to confirm they received the application and that they payment and application are valid. They send just gives you basic information and doesn't typically say anything about a co other then its been assigned one and that it will take between 5-12 months to finalize most applications.
It was about 3 months between getting the first email to hearing from my CO.

UPDATE: after an email complaining that it had been over 4 months with still no word from our CO, I finally got the standard ‘get your health & police checks done’ email. Was everyone else’s so very impersonal? The sender didn’t even introduce themselves as our CO!!

The GREAT NEWS is that my husband, being from Puerto Rico, DOES NOT need to get an FBI check!!! Hopefully this will make up for the extra long wait to hear from Washington! Hopefully…. He’s flying to Miami to get his medicals done next Monday. Does anyone know about how much longer it takes after the medicals are sent off?

Congrats Meisha, It was a formal message that I was sent by my CO, she did not introduce herself as that. It also included a document attached with what she was requesting.

I am still waiting on my FBI check to arrive to them which will be in the next week or two as they just charged me and I had my medicals and state police check done over a month ago and have been in Washington since. My co is currently away until Monday so I do not know how long it would take since you also need to consider the holidays coming up and how the office is closed during certain days.

I emailed my CO to see if she had received my FBI background check and she had. My application is currently in the finalization stage and I am currently waiting to find out if I will be granted my visa or not.

I am so nervous as she didn't give me any clue on if it is going to be granted or not.

Hey guys,

We talked to immigration today, decided not to wait. I got an ETA and booked my flight to go to Oz with my husband when he goes back in January.
