This acknowledgement contains just the address and the telephone number of DIAC's office in Adelaide - nothing specific. This information is available at their official website, too. Absolutely nothing is mentioned what to do in case I have some questions or problems...Of course I can try to get something from whoever is picking that telephone, at least if I have a CO or not. I've been told they try to persuade you just to wait but I will do my best especially if I don' receive an email tomorrow, then is the last day of these 8 weeks period.

Yes, that general contact information was what I was referring to. For us in the US it's e-mail address and phone number, sounds like for you it was just phone number. Why would they try to persuade you to wait to give them important information? That doesn't make sense to me. They try to get you to wait on medicals and police checks in most places, and for good reason, but not usually on anything else as far as I know.

After tomorrow if I don't get notification from a CO I'll call. The thing is I got pregnant while waiting for CO but by the time we did the medicals I was not...I wouldn't want DIAC to consider this some kind of fraud that's why I'd like to tell them.
But I am the main applicant and have no idea how the news is going to affect the evaluation process - speed it up or slow it down? Unfortunately, I couldn't find similar case to mine...

Hi Maria - I wouldn't think it would affect your processing time in either direction. Sorry for loss, by the way.

I guess I wrote it wrongly...the chronology is :
1. We do the medicals
2. I got pregnant

And the speed of DIAC's answer is crutial for where the baby is going to be born. I don't know whether we'll be given a choice in case they approve our application...Anyway it's complicated. If the baby is born in Bulgaria...we'll need one more visa. If not, DIAC's better hurry up.

OH, I see. I'm so glad I read that wrong! Well, being not pregnant is not something you can exactly fake given the tests they do, so i'm sure they won't think it's fraud, lol. For what it's worth they don't even speed up processing partner visas when one of the partners is pregnant, so I doubt they'd speed up your visa, either. You should definitely let them know, though. Good luck!

If they don't speed up the processing....I wonder if there is a chance to intentionally slow it down then...

Thank you for your fast replies!

Anytime! I know they will put applications "on hold" for applicants who are pregnant and can't do the medical as a result - not sure if they will for applicants who already did the medical. Worth asking, anyway.

I have visas granted!!!!
Never heard from the case officer until the visa grant email.

Yeswin, we applied on 20 June. If you are concearned about the status of your application, my advice is to call DIAC. I was worried the same way but it turned out to be for nothing.
