Default How long is artc taking these days to process???

Hello, I have just sent off my ARTC application and am wondering does anyone know how long it is taking for them to be processed of late? Providing everything is satisfactory that is. My friend posted his in November and had his ARTC obtained in 6 days!! I'm guessing he was just lucky, I heard somewhere they review them at the start of every month is this right?

I put a lot of time and effort into the application, with a lot of help from reading and sifting through all the threads here in this forum. I would like to thank everybody who has posted questions and answers here, I'm sure you have been a great help to many people, including myself.

If youve sent from UK expect months, alot of us here are waiting and have waited months.

If you live in OZ expect at least a month or so Ive a friend that got his in 6 weeks, 6 days I would find that hard to believe as its first come first served, there has been a big backlog this for months thats straight from TRA website.


Goodluck

TRA received my artc application 6 weeks ago, still nothing back, to say I'm getting impatient is an understatement. I know people on this forum have waited much longer than this, but some friends of mine received theirs quicker, so I'm expecting it every day i check!
