Wonder what that means ?
Not sure. Mine said application incomplete.
Guys, I wont worry too much about what the customer service centre folks say, so far these are some of the common terms used by them that people have reported or flagged;

1. In Progress
2. Pending
3. Incomplete
4. Very progressive
5. Not yet assigned
6. Not on the system
7. Can take up to six months etc.

So dont be disturbed collipu.
Thanks TTOE

Not getting through to an advisor on that number today, either option 2 or 3, some lady just says all advisors are busy and the call gets disconnected. Anyone else trying with more luck? Am I doing the right things?

Thanks guys, I followed your advice and went back and persisted with it, on the 4th consecutive try I got through, 5-6 mins after that a lady answered the call, and after taking a lot of details, she told me ceremony letter has been despatched on the 11th, and should be with me in a couple of days.

I will update the group when I receive the letter, thanks for all your support guys.

Congrats TTOE mate. So what did you choose for your wife, maiden name or married name on the certificate? In my wifes case its going to be her maiden name, but when applying for passport we will be using deedpoll to get it in her married name.
