This mean you booked the appointment before getting the letter for appoinment ? How did you manage to get the appointment booked without having any appointment letter?
Yes I could do that as the person I was speaking to knew that the letter was already on it's way. He gave me the reference number on the letter and the number to call - you only need these to book the appointment.

I am a little annoyed as its been a week and no confirmation sms/text or return of documents.
When we did it for my spouse and son last year, we got a text within 2 days and documents returned within a week
