Albanian 309 processing in Belgrade

Looking for anyone else that has been processed for same visa in Belgrade, particularly another Albanian. What process and time frame have you been through to date? Also anyone have any advice if they've had to obtain a medical check for a dependant child that the applicant has no contact with.

Eeeek I'm freaking out!!!!!!! They only received the application yesterday and have debited the funds already. I know it's the first thing they do but it's exciting and scary.

I called up Pretoria office last week to know if they have received my application. They were not able to find my application. After three days continuous followups they were able to find the application on 23rd and informed that they will send the acknowledgement by end of day. But I didn't receive any . I asked them about CO assignment and they told they will not assign a CO now and it may take 9-12 months as the visa processing time is 9-12 months. They informed medicals are not required at this stage but no harm even if I complete it and send.

Any one have idea about the timelines for assigning a CO ? My understanding was that CO will be assigned once they register the application and provide acknowledgement.

I have seen the timelines pretty good for Pretoria applications in this forum . Not sure what is happening with my case.

TIMELINE
23/02/2012: Sent application to processing center in Pretoria
01/03/2012: Application delivered in Pretoria Office.

Fedex updated that they delivered the application on 1st of March. But I haven't received any notification from Pretoria Office. They are not responding to phone calls or emails. How much time they may take to respond and assign a case officer ?

Regards,
Tomy

After many months of preparing evidence, I finally handed in my application this morning. The wait wasn't too long and I left almost 3k poorer and 2kg lighter. I have provided lots of evidence for the last 3 years to skip the temp visa and frontloaded with meds and police checks (although the person taking it said I should be aware that I'll have to do them again as the waiting period is now 12-18 months...) Let's see if they process my 'decision-ready' application quickly.

And the waiting game begins...
Visa granted today!!! Just happened to check VEVO and it says I'm a permanent resident (801) Didn't get an email yet so still can't believe it but I checked multiple times And only 7 weeks!

Thanks to all of you in this forum you have helped me so much with the preparation! If any of you want to ask me something feel free
PS: I send them an email a few days ago asking if they needed more info as I thought my app was decision-ready (just to make them look at it- and they did!) So a tip for you waiting - if you have submitted everything just remind them it might really speed things up!
