Not yet. Still checking 3 times a day! My immi account wasn't accessible earlier and the optimist in me assumed the CO had it open, ready to grant the visa! But still waiting for that magic moment.

Hi all,

I've recently applied but seems to be a lot of UK based applicants here so wanted to share mine -

Visa: 309/100
Location: U.K.
Applied: 13 Sept 2016
CO Assigned:
Medical uploaded:
Police check uploaded: 13 Sept 2016

London wait times show as 10-14 months now whereas Aus Gov website shows 5-6 months.

Either way, been with my partner 2 years and have a baby together. No other issues. Hopefully this is deemed as straightforward.

Has anyone completed their medical before being requested to by their CO? Looks as if CO usually contacts around 2-3 month mark from DOL.

You are not missing out. It simply has my status as 'received'. It's been the same since I applied!

It shows you that your medicals have been passed - that's about all.

From our experience and looking at timelines on here, 2 months seems about average for being contacted by your CO. We had our medicals within a week of lodging the Visa application. Same with the Police checks. There is a minimal risk that they run our after 12 months, but I'm too optimistic to contemplate it might go on that long (please)! From what I can gather on here, a fair few people seem to get lucky around the 5- 6 month mark so fingers crossed.

I've never paid SO much money for anything in my life and received a worse service! Not from the individual case workers/ employee's who seem to be diligent and professional... but in terms of the communications and updates on progress!

There dose seem to be a pattern on visa grants It seem to work out anyone that applied on the 1april will get granted on Wednesday of this week it just seem the way grants are going thay are in date
