Default Re: June 07 visa applicants

Hi all, noticed that no one has had any good news on here for the last few days.

I sent an email on the progress of our visa monday to ask for a estimated guess as to when we would get a CO, as when ive emailed a similar message asking when the visa would be granted they always state they do them in date order and we havnt got a CO. So anyway, i thought this time id ask about the CO, to be told again, they do them in date order and that they are working on January CO now!!

Just wondering if anyone has stayed up late and tried the phone number to enquire about progress and if it was as vague and incorrect as the emails you get!

This baffles me also they definatley dont do them in date order if thats the case all you junies should have CO and even visas im a july app and a lot of july apps have already this week been granted there visas(which im a very pleased for them ) while some are still waiting full acks and COs, including myself it does make you feel forgotton especially when your app was put in before others and theyve already heard but im sure we will all get there in the end but the waiting sure is hard isnt there a saying that its not the war that can kill a soilder its the waiting

Feel the same way, have long given up on how they process the applications, we have front loaded or medicals and police checks, so getting a bit worried that we are going to have to re-do them, anyone else had to redo medicals etc? as if so we are going to have to start saving again.

I've just tried a very similar thing but emailing the address on the acknowledgement form and had a standard email saying pretty much what you've just said but it did say we would get a more detailed reply if our query wasn't about the information on the email (receiving an acknowledgement)and as I'd specifically asked about co I'm hoping they might send more information in a day or two.
I emailed our agent and he seemed confident we would hear in a day or two so I'm trying to keep positive and treating it all as 'no news etc' but it is hard coz we're in this kind of limbo for now- are we going or not? It's not such a big problem for us but our eldest son is applying for uni and doesn't know what he's doing.

similar to us but not had meds yet but thinking we will probably have to validate in july/aug this year if we get visa but can't book any flights coz no visa yet but flights will go through roof soon and we will still have to have single flights later in year to move properly.Can't get my head around anything at mo'. Lets hope we all hear soon!!!

So great to hear everyone getting their visas. Congratulations to you all the feeling must be great! So wish it was us!!

Not sure if our medicals are cleared yet- they were signed for on 3 Dec. OH has diabetes so not sure if they will be a straight forward yes.

It's so tempting to email the Lcu- it would be nice to know if that stage has been successful. I can cope then with the wait for a yes or no. Although if its no I will be devasted.

It feels like life is on hold a bit until we know for sure. It seems pointless trying to organise anything in case its a waste of time. Our meds/pcs were done last September and we were hoping to go by August.

Babsw- Have sebt you some good luck Karma-really hope you get a CO soon.

It's really hard to work out who is still waiting.
Shall we start a list?
