They don't make it easy Has anyone on this thread heard from their CO yet?! I am shocked at how some visa applicants applied at the beginning of this year and still havn't heard anything! Lets hope they start working on approving 2014 visas!
Yeah, we don't have a CO yet, but I want to see those people who applied in the weeks before us get their CO so that I can see progress happening.

Heats, I just checked mine and it says the same name you mention. I don't think that's our CO. When I called the embassy last week they told me that I will b assigned a CO soon.

No, I didn't... other than "hey when is my visa going to be approved?" or "Do you have everything you need to make this happen today?" I really don't have anything to ask... and sure don't want to slow them down with my pointless emails.

If you're waiting to hear about COs, you may be waiting a while... DC is not one of those embassies that usually notifies you when you get a CO anymore. Also, despite what they told emkas last week, from what we've learned recently it seems many embassies (including DC) are no longer assigning a specific CO to individual cases. The cases basically get put in order received, and then whoever finishes an application picks up the next one, so to speak. Since all COs can handle each case, if your CO is on holiday or out sick it's less likely to result in delays. If what we've heard is true and this is happening in DC, I'd say it's a good thing.

So you don't think the MD that the email said to send replies to is my CO... Bummer!

Probably not. Seriously, it doesn't matter anyway. Getting a CO (IF DC is still assigning them that way, which I doubt) wouldn't indicate a single thing about how much longer your application is going to take. When I applied, I got a CO assigned in my acknowledgment email. It did absolutely nothing to speed up the process.

Hello all,

I just received an email from a case officer saying they have received all the necessary documents for my application and that pending final assessment it will be on track for a October or November 2014 finalization. I applied in March so this would be a 6-8 month processing time if it is successful.

Besides the generic email checklist I received a few months back this is the first correspondence I've had. Hopefully this is a good thing and hopefully those of us who applied in the spring will see some action in the next few months

Glad to see they're still granting around 9 months for those of you that applied earlier. I feel sorry for current applicants with their 12-15 month wait. Yay, carobear!
