Default Timeline - FSW application to CIO in Sydney, NS

I would be grateful to hear of others' actual experience of the timeline between making an application to the CIO in Sydney, NS and receiving the email acknowledgement. I have followed previous posts and the Trackitt information but there does not yet appear to be much precedent information to assess the efficiency of the new system.

My own FSW application pack was received by the CIO on 17 June, 2009. As yet, I have heard nothing. It would be good to hear how other people are doing with applications submitted in say May and June this year.

Cheers

Martin

Hi

this is our timeline so far: All 2009

Application sent to Sydney NS April 6
AOR April 23rd
Request for 120 day docs April 29
Docs sent to London UK May 19
AOR from London June 11
Reviewed docs and processing July 14

Just waiting for medical request now!!

Hope that helps it is for FSW application we are using a visa company in Canada so they obviously receive the documents for us and pass them on.

Best of luck

Is there any way of checking that it actually arrived?? I sent mine in May too, so it could be soon or its lost??

Check that your bankers draft was cashed is the only way but most people dont even get an AOR anymore

Yes you are correct our application was recieved 12th May in Sydney, 120 day email recieved on the 15th July. It seems to be taking a bit longer to get a response, suspect they are now being inundated with applications!

Thanks to everyone for replying. It seems that the CIO is becoming busier and that we will have to become more patient.

Please keep us all posted on progress. I will do the same.

Thanks. Looks like we are on almost the exact same timeline so let's keep in touch. I will check to see if they have cashed my draft, which I assume would be a good sign?

Just found out that they cashed my draft on 16 July. At least that means they are not sending it back!
