Have I got a CO???

    Recommended Posts

    Guest brandyslad

    I have logged into my visa application for the 1st time to check status as I only lodged on the 21st January. And its says 'Application being processed further' - 09/02/09.

     

    It says for birth cert, state nomination, passport photo and overseas qualification - Met.

     

    Everything else is 'requested'. But there are things on there that I have attached such as my skills assessment that are 'requested' too. Bit confused... Haven't had any email.

     

    Can anyone advise?

    Yes it is.. cant beleive it might be so quick!

     

     

    Maybe they are just trying to access everyone's before the 13th and we still might have a right wait.

    It is so quick if I have got the CO, I remember when I started this we thought it would be over a year before we got the visa. Our police checks should be here in the next few days, they cashed the cheque last Thursday and our meds are booked for Friday. I need to push my friends for Stat Decs now and get them scanned in too.

     

    Have you got a CO yet??

    I will worry now about all my docs and if they are right esp about us being a de facto status couple and plus my OH has two minor convictions on his police record from years back. But yes I am pleased and shocked someone has looked at it so quickly. Seems more real now.

     

    Fingers crossed yours will be looked at this week, before the 13th. Yours might go straight to visa grant as you have everything done.

    Nah, my chest x-rays and medical results are sat in Birmingham as DIAC suddenly decided they now DIDNT want them in advance before having a CO! Tempted to send them in actually... cos they said we'd have a CO 10 days after SA confirmed sponsorship and they did that on Saturday.

     

    I totally know what you mean about worrying, altho im sure you'll be fine. I can imagine it's when you get a CO that the worry really starts... im struggling to sleep at the moment at the thought of getting a CO soon nevermind a visa!

     

    You got your medicals booked? xxxxxx

    Yep, X-ray and meds booked for this Friday. The docs said they would send them straight on to Sydney. I would say it will be a few weeks before thsy sort them out and Adelaide gets them though.

    Yep very quick. I find it very strange they don't do them in date order, it's not fair. You would assume that would pick them up on who has been waiting the longest, that's the way state sponsorship seems to go. How many of you are going? There is just me and my partner heading out, he is a welder and I'm a community worker.

    Hi there

     

    My status had changed when I checked online as it just showed my Meds needed until I checked the otherinfo and nothing had changed. I emailed my agent and she said I hadn't been allocated a CO as yet and we need to wait and see.

     

    I hate the wait :skeptical:

     

    So have you received emails to say you have CO?

    Yep, very quick, we got word there that we are being laid of in work at the beginning of May so the sooner the better. Our meds are booked for this Friday and we are just getting all ready for letting the house out. Lots to do!!

     

    It all feels very real now although the CO has not emailed or anything yet.

    We got an email last week from DIAC requesting meds, police checks & a Form 80 to be completed by the 2nd person. All the other doc statuses are now 'Met'.

     

    All seems to be happening very quick as we only submitted the visa app Nov 2008, so we're not exactly rushing to get the meds done. We have 28 days to respond & I understand that as long as we have booked the meds & can supply evidence of that then DIAC will be happy with that.
