Yes it seems that way ! I can't mention names but she is Australian. You are in very good hands, so don't worry. I know she has had 100% success rate and is very professional.
I know it seems to take a long time but my thinking was that anything less than 1 year was a bonus and you and your husband are together which is great.

Welcome Becks

For Egyptians prior to around those lodged prior to around Jan 2014 ot was taking 9 to 10 months, now it is taking around 8 months. Maybe it is to do with the price rises who knows?

Not necessarily true about Egyptians with Egyptians being faster. I know of 2 and one was exactly the same processing time as others lodged around that time.

All cases are different the only similar thing is that if an interview is required majority of the questions are standard but they do throw in personal ones too based on your circumstances ie. My husband (then fiancÚ) was asked what footy team I go for and about an operation I had.

Thanks Mish,

Is it strange that my agent believes I have not been provided a case officer yet? When am I normally assigned one? I told my husband last night this and seemed it strange that they have had our application two months he asked if we have not been assigned one where is our case hiding under someone's desk. Lol

Also those woman that are living here with their husbands how did you prove that you can provide for your husbands when you get to Australia such as housing.

3 question is Mish how did they know about your football team and your operation is this something you mentioned in your application?

Thanks a bunch

Hi Becks

It is strange you haven't been allocated a case officer yet. That is one thing that Cairo have always been very efficient in (unless they have changed what they do). Most people are allocated one within a day or 2 of lodging. The longest I had heard of was 2 weeks. I would have thought it would have been something to chase up.

The operation they knew of because I had mentioned it in the tourist visa that we applied for so she must have looked through that application because that is the only place it was mentioned.

Footy team she didn't know who my team was but she knew I followed footy as one of my friends had mentioned something about the footy in their statement.

Hi Becks
I can't recall writing anything about providing for my husband once we arrived. I will check through our paperwork. What we did say was that my family and friends would help us with accommodation when we first got there and that we both intended to look for work immediately. I did not have to provide any specific financial information that's for sure. With regard to the interview questions... I did a lot of research and also asked on this forum. I was told that they really don't check up on your answers but that the interviewer reads the body language and assesses your responses. They asked my husband some pretty unusual questions but our agent said this is normal to make sure the relationship is genuine etc. I went to the Embassy with my husband for the interview to show support for him. The CO said hello to me etc but did not speak to me at all

You will get an email from them saying that they are your case officer.

If I contact the embassy directly to find out about case officer will they tell me as I don't want to bother my immigration agent as it was only yesterday I asked her about it and she said she didn't believe that I have been assigned one yet

Sure! I don't imagine that would be a problem.
