News on the Meds!
All have been received. Everyone except me is finalised! Me and my b****y high blood pressure (that is controlled now!).
And yes, it was diagnosed before I started the visa application....it's probably through the roof now!

C'MON YOU MEDS!!!

Ah, now it's too soon but just think back to when it was all taking too long!

Get a box and put in in the paperwork for everything that can be dealt with AFTER you arrive (I did that, but used a scanner and a PC rather than a box to save on baggage).

Great to see more progress for y'all: sitting and chilling in the sun is good therapy for high blood pressure

Cheers

I can remember just how stressful those last few days were, and even though we thought we had been so organised and worked hard to sort things out we still needed another day. The trouble was everyone wanted to pop in and say goodbye! Once you are on the plane it will be a lot easier. Good luck we are thinking of you!!!

Hey there, everyone

Your opinions/advice please: at what point should we email our CO to follow up on our file? And do we email the CO directly, phone the DIAC, or use the online message?

We got the 'being processed further' message on 10 September. Our case officer asked for more info on 24 September. We sent everything through on 1 October. Two weeks later we emailed the DIAC to check that they had everything that they needed. They emailed us back to confirm that they had all the documents and said they would forward everything to our CO shortly.

We thought maybe the CO would only look at the file again once the 28-day deadline for documents was up – that would have been 22 October.

So it's been three weeks since the 28-day deadline, four weeks since we confirmed they had everything, and seven weeks since the CO contacted us.

So, how long should we wait before making contact? Or is it just going to annoy our CO?

Cheers
Abby (& Tim)

My status hadn't changed this morning - still waiting for me to finalise. So now I think the chant needs to change to....

Fairly similar situation here, Abby.

CO requested info 2 months ago which I have supplied in good time. He actually gave me 70 days to respond - the deadline was today.

I sent a quick 'nudge' email to the dept last week asking them to confirm receipt.

They confirmed receipt of docs and said something along the lines of the CO will review the docs in due course and they appreciate my patience.

Mind, others have sent emails and have had their visas within hours....
