Wife lodged in Guangzhou, China on 4 November 2011, visa granted 16 March 2012. Four and a half months. Medicals completed in mid November. Two interviews, one on application lodgement and then another 29 December. Very happy with the result given orginally quoted the standard twelve months. Only follow up on the original application was a new NPC as the one I got as not the official AFP ceretrificate. Tips from my persepctive is to use e-mail to keep the application rolling along. Thansk to all that have posted here. It was very helpful. Good luck to those waiting.

Cardiff, there's only 5 or 6 places in the UK you can get it done. You have to fill in a general medical questionaire, they give you a quick check up, height, weight, check joint movements etc. They also did a chest x-ray and a blood test for HIV. Good luck with your application.

Hey all,

So we filed the 14th of Feb and I got an email stating they received my application on Feb 22, 2012. Now...if Im not mistaken and this is a quote from the email "We have begun to process your application. This letter confirms that your payment has been receipted and your application has been assessed as a valid application. This letter confirms that your application is progressing. Your application has been allocated to a case officer and is undergoing further assessment. " So that means we have a CO?

Now they haven't asked for anything yet, but we went ahead and got our Police checks and we are going for our medicals April 2nd. So I guess I just want to make sure that what they sent us was not only confirmation that received our application, they stated that it was valid, and gave us a file number and supposedly gave us a CO? I would think this was good news and they didn't just take our $2120 and run

Oh well, I guess I just needed moral support

You can be off/onshore for the second stage processing regardless if the application being submitted either off or onshore, the approval for first stage processing must occur the same as the application submission ie; onshore for onshore and offshore for offshore

I submitted mine to DC and got a similar email except mine had my CO's name along with my file number. I wouldn't worry that they've taken your money and run :P It is very good news. Mine was granted in just under 3 months. Of course I've been married to my hubby for 7 years and we have a 3 year old but all cases are different and as long as you've sent enough evidence, you guys should be fine.
