I have tried contacting them but no reply.
I'm from Mauritius but had to apply via the Pretoria office. Are you from Pretoria? As i was wondering if it was quicker for those who were from Pretoria or South Africa.
I don't think Pretoria is answering emails unless you're outside of the processing times at the moment. We were there recently for passports and they are inundated with requests.

We're based in South Africa and from what I have seen those who are outside of South Africa but still have to go through Pretoria do take longer. In saying that there isn't a clear timeline for when a grant will happen so it's best to go off the global processing times. We were honestly expecting to wait for another 5 or so months to be contacted ( though that didn't stop me from over checking emails).

I know the waiting is terrible but my best advice is to hang in there. As long as you've done everything that you need to your grant will come.

Hi All,

I am new here, and it is very encouraging to read what others are experiencing especially the success story. Its a nice "pick me up" when morale is low. :-)
So for now my spirits are lifted, wishing the best outcome for us all. My time line as follows:

309/100 application submitted Pretoria (agent) 02 October 2017 with no further contact besides biometrics request.

It is a lottery for snappy grants, But I don't think there will be many of them - there is only about 5 weeks left till the quota resets for the year.

I have another question if you dont mind, when Immi requests further information and they give you 28 days....is it working days or consecutive days?

It is consecutive, so 4 weeks from the date.

When they request further information, you need to reply within the 28 days saying that you have supplied or supplied evidence that you are going to (expect) supply the information. So you can show a booking for a medical or a receipt for police checks as the medical centre can be fully booked for more than a month and police checks can take a few months from some places.
