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!

And all from people I suspect that have found themselves on THE LIST.

I suppose it may come down to quotas as we progress ?

Sent mine on 17 June as well, have heard nothing back.

How do you check if a bank draft has been cashed?

Just ask your bank. I did that today. They said bank draft had been cashed on 17th July. The application was sent to CIO on 14th June.

Have you had an email from the CIO yet? I am trying to measure how long they are taking now as it used to be about a month but appears to be pushing out to two months based on recent experiences shared on this forum.

Oh dear! Have they cashed your draft? You read some postings referring to the paperwork being lost. Ours went off in early-May originally but they sent it all back after a month because we had not put N/A in a single empty box on the forms.

I hope you/we hear soon.

Nope, nothing at all to date. Just relieved to know the bankers draft has been cashed as we sent application by normal post so have spent the whole of June wondering whether CIO had received it!!!! :eek:

I have all info collected and waiting to be sent off. If you send documents off as soon as you get 120 day letter, do they review it any sooner or wait until 120 days have lapsed.:confused:

For us, they processed within a month of receiving the documentation, and we sent it back within 30 days of receiving the letter, so yes!

Congratulations, our full package is almost ready to go, just waiting on new police checks, as I am currently in the Uk on holiday I arranged for the police checks to come to me here.

Will leave the full package with my mother in law to send off if they have not arrived before I leave.....

Still waiting for my yes/no email from CIO. My FSW application was received by them in mid-June and they cashed my draft mid-July. I do not know whether it is good news if they have cashed the draft as they could always reject my application and cut me a new cheque!

Fingers crossed.
