So we submitted our application on 19th August, saw the website was updated today to say that immigration were now processing applications from 19th August, I gave them a call (yes i'm impatient!) and they said we were 11 away from being processed!
They said there had been a major issue recently and applications had stopped being processed, but processing will resume as normal tomorrow. Not sure what the issue was but glad processing is now back on track!!!
Heres to hoping we will get our invitation soon, is anyone else still waiting?!
