I will wait till the end of 8th week and if I do not hear till then, I will call them up!:frown:

It took 4 months for us to get a response from Sydney!

My guess is that you will hear in the next week, given my timeline. I am dropping my complete package of documents off at the CHC tomorrow.

feelin a bit frustrated with this immigration malarky! received a verbal confirmation from Sydney that our application was approved, was told written confirmation would follow, and that they had found our lost forms -still not got the written confirmation and have now only been waiting since Feb - aaarrggghhhhh.

Feeling left behind as we see lots of application after ours was sumbitted but positive outcome

If you have proof that they have cashed your payment, is it worth sending them another copy of the paperwork with a covering letter? You have probably thought of this already.

Got my 120 day email today....not bad under 2 months from receipt of application.

Better get my finger out now !!!

By the looks of the letter they're looking for the same info that was sent in the original application + photo's

Can anyone shed some light on this

Hi Gav

Yep you are right - they want the same forms which you originally sent in.

Forms given to London on the 11th by Hand, returned on Saturday , with a query over the fee we paid so off again today!!! DO they not know how to send emails to ask questions, why do they feel the need to return every flipping bit of paper !! its so frustrating ....
