VISA GRANTED Valentines Day 2012 - Tuesday Feb 14th!

Taking almost exactly 5 months from the London office.

**Advice for everyone lodging applications**
If you choose to do your own application then be very meticulous in reading up the requirements, provide anything and everything that is relevant. But read and read and read again through the Information booklet and the application itself.

**Advice for those waiting **
Its is incredibly difficult to wait for this length of time, if your like me you wont realise the toll it takes until you receive the news. Be strong and positive.

Good Luck everyone.... Hello Sunny Australia goodbye Snowy London.

Medicals submitted (yes/no): Yes - 3 October 2011

UPDATE: I received my police report from the FBI on November 23. The RCMP had not updated their website, and after numerous calls I was told their processing time is 4-6 months. I decided to get digital prints done on 1/17. They were processed and sent to my case officer on 1/18. Case officer notified me that she received them on 2/6 and my VISA WAS GRANTED 2/10!!!

This is an update I have been waiting to make for 4.5 months. Our Visa was GRANTED TODAY (February 15, 2012)! We had no official contact from our Case Officer until today with an email indicating our visa has been accepted. A huge sigh of relief and we're off to Australia on March 20, 2012. This forum has been incredible. Hang in there everyone. It's coming!

Congrats! That's so good to hear. Couple of questions for you, if you don't mind


1. Was the email, from the CO, from a generic address or a personal one?
2. Did you contact the DIAC at all during your wait?
3. Did you submit it through the Ottawa office?

I submitted my application for temporary/permanent residency on November 16/2011 so this gives me hope that, assuming all the evidence is good, I could be approved (theoretically) within the next 30-45 days. Our 5 month arrives on April 16.

So excited!
