Default to email or not to email once processing time is up?

Morning everyone,

Just a quick question about contacting the embassy. When we got our original PR AOR is had a predicted processing of 12-18 months, which is now definitely up! On the AOR it says that if we have not heard from them in that time to contact them. We had our 90day later waaaaay back this time last year and thats the only time we heard from them.

Naturally these processing times are estimates and we expected to take a bit longer but is it worth sending them a little email as our processing time is now up or just hang on in there?

We have also been waiting 10 weeks for our IEC permits- luck and time are clearly not on our side!

Many thanks x

If your outside the estimated time line i think it would be fine to drop them an email.
Hope you hear soon

Definitely. It might do some good and wouldn't do any harm, but not contacting them will surely make no difference.

Thanks guys- its nice to have some reassurance. I was going to wait until all this IEC nonsense is over. They seem to have really ballsed it up as people like us have been waiting weeks and weeks whilst other seem to be being granted them in no time at all. The plan was to go out on the IEC this year and wait for PR but I guess a little check up email can't hurt!

yeah I was given a 6 weeks time line now soon as the 6 weeks were up on the same day I emailed them they sent one back saying it may take 8 weeks or more because of high volume of applications.. just to let you know You have just got to wait it out like us all, except for those lucky people who seem to be getting theirs in 4 weeks or more lol

thanks but I mean my main PR application. Waiting 8 weeks plus feels like a walk in the park compared to the last 2 years! And some people wait even longer than that :-(
