How long does it take for them to assign a CO?

And if i can start a 600 application before a CO is assigned.

I checked online and they received the application on the 24/03/14.

Just trying to figure out what to do with the rentals, ideally it would be that a CO be assigned ASAP, do the required paperwork whilst a 600 visa is being processed and hopefully approved. That way we can spend more time together and save some rental money

That's impossible to answer, but 2 recent cases took 6 and 8 months to finalise. Once a CO is allocated, processing seems to be done in a matter of days or weeks, if all the documentation is ok.

Their published processing times seem fairly accurate.

It depends on their caseload and staffing levels really and the quality of the application. Keep in mind as well that towards the end of the financial year processing often slows right down or stops altogether.

You can apply for a tourist visa as soon as you have received the acknowledgement letter.

We did the application in person and received a receipt. It had the VFS tracking number on it. Is that the same as the letter or do they send one out regardless?

You should receive a proper acknowledgement letter. It's not the same as a VFS receipt.

Haven't received the letter yet. Does it normally take this long to mail out acknowledgement?

I just checked some old cases. The last one I did via VFS, I actually had to ask the Consulate for an acknowledgement, which they did by email. I did not get an attached acknowledgement letter, which is the usual procedure.Maybe you can check your status through the VFS website to check that a valid application has been lodged ?

Just checked with the website, plugged in the VFS number and it said it was received by the consulate.

One more favour, can you check if we will still be assigned and notified of a CO to contact? When we went to apply they said we were missing 2 documents and to lodge them later, but they didn't say when. Thanks
