How are you informed that you have been allocated a case officer. We have state sponsorship and according to the DIAC will be nominated a CO by the 13th Feb. We have applied independently and so have no agent to inform us. Just wondered if anyone knew how they contacted you , if it was by Email or on on the DIAC site where you can check the progress of your online application. Excited at the prospect of moving a little closer to achieving our dream but still lies the mammoth task of the house sale. Hey ho this process certainly tests your ability for endurance. Just hope it is all as we hope it will be.
