our Kids are both aussie citizens by descent - did their paperwork months ago.
we've been married for 7 years, uploaded all our documents - evidence and all that jazz .....
haven't been assigned a CO yet but i really would love to get approval by december LOL so my daughter can start school over there at the end of january and not miss anything ... she'll be in kindergarten .... our son is 2 so no worries with him .....

when i moved to the USA - i waited 5 months for my visa to be approved so I'm hoping australia will be the same (heres hoping!!)

my mom is battling cancer and we did put that in the application, and we do need to get over there asap really to give her support etc .....

the wait is a killer and i don't like waiting haha ......

i love this forum, been trolling it for a while now and gathering information and such ....

oh and how do we know which office we applied at if its been done online?
It automatically goes to the embassy closest to you for most countries - there may be a few exceptions, but very few. So if you've applied from the US, you're definitely with the US embassy in DC.

I submitted the application online from Australia on my wife's behalf so where would mine have gone?

Chocolate thunda - it goes to the embassy closest to the applicant if the applicant is offshore. Is your wife in Pakistan? If so, it would have likely gone to the High Commission in Islamabad. If your wife were already in Australia with you, it would be processed within Australia.

If she's in the US, (just a guess since you're posting in the US thread), it'd be processed by the DC embassy.

I'm new to the thread, first post. My PMV 300 application was submitted May 3 2014, front-loaded with FBI and state checks. The acknowledgement e-mail included my HAP ID, and I got my medicals completed and submitted by end of May. When I called requesting status at the end of June, I was told that my medicals had cleared. When I called to inform them of upcoming travel to Sydney, I was told I had a CO, but they couldn't tell me who it was. There's been no communication from DC to this point.

How are people finding who their CO is? And ... is there a "normal" time from medicals clearing and CO assignment to Visa approval?

P.S. Thanks for this forum. It's nice to know that I'm not alone in this limbo waiting to be with my fiancee!

Hi,
I did the same thing, front loaded with FBI/Police checks and medical checks. The medical cleared within 2 days and was submitted in the same week by the panel doctor. I got the confirmation letter saying my application was received the day I paid for the application. When I called in to the Canadian number, they told me they would start "assessing" my application. No news from a CO and as mentioned in above replies, sometimes you don't hear from one till they get ready to grant. Good luck!!

Hi JerseytoOz,

One who send you a acknowledgement e-mail can be your CO.

The acknowledgement email is automatically generated if the application is submitted online.

We called the canadian office yesterday and were told by someone called Kara that the CO is assigned 2 months after the application is submitted .. not sure how much of that is BS but thats what we were told ......
