Default Is there any way of finding out the status of your application

Hi everybody, I submitted my paperwork 15 Dec 2009, it was signed for at the CIC on the 21 Dec 2009, as yet we have had no correspondence as to the state of play; How will I know if it is being dealt with, I have included my AEO, is it best to watch my bank account for the money coming out or do they email you??

Many Thanks

Chris

I dont think ecas will work until you have the confirmation letter with a file number etc will it? Even then its seldom updated and ambiguous when it is...

That is correct. They do seem to be updating it more often now though - at least on some cases...!

They are working on a 67 day (give or take a day) turnaround at the moment. We had one in on 16th Novem and heard back on 21st Jan by e-mail.

Have you checked it hasn't been caught by your spam filter?

Also, did you have confirmation that it was actually delivered to them?

If it was 21st Dec then you should hear back from them on 26th February - so don't panic too much yet.

Chris,

Mine took around 90 days. You can access the eCas once you've received your letter with you 'B' number. It can be a long old process!

I posted mine on 5/11/09, and it was delivered to CIC on 12/11/09.

I'm currently sitting at 77 days (inc weekends). Not heard anything either from email (spam and junk folders) and checked my Mastercard activity, and nothing there neither.

I'm getting a bit anxious!

Seems to be a lot of bureaucracy and making people wait for no apparent reason, all it would take is simple courtesy to send a email reply, even if its a generated email.

Ah, but if they do that then the official clock starts to tick... I suspect they have government targets they are supposed to hit for processing within a certain time, but thats probably the time from when they officially acknowledge receipt

Simply a case of this being a relatively low government priority, so they don't spend much on it Im afraid.
