Thanks for the new link Pollyanna, I tried to go back after receiving WMoore's notification and see if the link could be transferred to the open forum but could not access anything.
It seems to be becoming important for us parents to keep an eye on the progress of the applications.........or lack of it! For the sudden changes in timescales over the last few months is disconcerting to say the least. From being ok in progress last June/July to the possibility of up to an 18 month wait now came as a bit of a shock to our preparations. If you have front loaded for example they are all, or could be a waste of time now and you will have to repeat them incurring costs and more time.
Hopefully as someone said on the thread the new quota begins at the end of this month and perhaps that will rejuvenate the process? Things do seem to have gone completely awry with the system as my application was posted by courier at the end of October and yet was not lodged until 21 Dec! Nearly 2 months later. However we can all hopefully keep some track on whats happening via this thread. Thanks again Pollyanna and to all who have responded and expressed an interest in this, its great to have support and info.

Hi

Just to let you know that I've found it too thanks to Pollyana's kind assistance. Will post again if I hear anything more from the POPC (but I must say I'm beginning to wonder whether they are a mirage, the silence is so deafening!)

Yep, and I'm here too, feeling as if I've been talking in class and got told off.

Found you all, I think I was partly involved with the chat that closed the
previous thread so I offer my sincere apologies and consider myself in detention.
Many thanks to the pm's I have received from members with regard to my medical question, so reassuring to receive and be able to support each-other. Are there any restrictions on this thread regards subject matter we can discuss?
I really am keeping fingers crossed that we all get news in July, I wonder who will post the first thread with positive feedback on CO's?
Regards
Carol

Hello all you prospective CP visa holders!

You can say what the hell you like in The Barbie - but obviously within reason.

May all your waits be short (ish)

Our CP application had case officer Lilyana Taleski (Sp?) who was excellent - went out of her way to keep us up to dte and helped out when things went awry. We sent a glowing letter of reference to her superiors when we eventually got the visa!
