She sent that the following week, but we are yet to hear anything else for the last month. She has sent 2 emails but had no reply and anytime she calls they just tell her that it's being processed but don't tell her who the CO is.

Anyone else submit in mid October? Have you had any success or feedback?
Hey Mate,

Where one day ahead of you we applied on 11 October, I actually emailed the Embassy in Manila was told I we been allocated to a CO. I also ask who our CO and no info given.

I applied my wife for family sponsored tourist visa she flying on 11 Feb, in good faith she will have her spouse visa before her visa expire (3 months).

Thanks for that, I have thought about going down the Tourist Visa route but always think that by the time it's approved the Spouse Visa will be too, so I might as well just wait.

Well what a coincidence, just a few hours after joining here to ask some questions we got the approval on my wife's visa!

Does anyone have any experience on how long it takes for the passport to return after sending it the embassy?

I need to organise some holidays from work so would like some estimate on when I should do that.

My wife's application was submitted to the Australian Hugh Commission in Singapore in early Nov. received an acknowledgment letter a couple of weeks later along with forms to obtain police checks and medicals. These were completed in Dec and we have heard nothing since. We did request an update but got back a standard email saying that the applications is being processed and we will contact you if we require further information. The stated processing time in the acknowledgement letter was 5-8 months so all we can do is wait. 3 months have passed just 2 to go with a bit of luck...

Should be pretty quick. They just have to print the visa sticker and stamp it on her passport. It should be less than a week.
