No didnt speak to anyone. I was determined not to think about it for 6 months and was going to throw a fit if it didnt arrive within time :)

Hi dj25000....They(HO) ask us for do not call nor email them,in another words, for we do not bother them(lol) but after being in this forum,I decided to call them for the first time and the lady asked me when I applied and than she asked me the Ref Number and she told that mine it was in the last stage. Well, after a hell of months just waiting and wondering what is going on ,I got a little bit happy, I can not wait to have positive news and to have my passaport back ,of course with the PR on it.I would give a call.Good luck!

@ radi8 a big congratulations to u!!!!! So it took approximately 10days to get ur PR after been told its in final stage. That's not bad at all, will call HO today to get latest update on my case. Applied 04/08/10, received COA dated 24/08/10, called HO on 04/01/11 and was told still with a case worker. At least we are sure they are within the 6 mth rule.

Hi everyone,
Congrats to those of you who got your PR already!I'm still waiting..
Applied on 01/10/10
Got COA on 15/10/10.
Heard nothing since. Tried to call them but can never get through on the number ending 5200. Most of you seem to have managed to speak to someone. Any other number you guys have been calling?! please advise.
Many thanks

Hi, called HO yesterday and was told still with a case worker, I then told them abt my employer asking for my PR and was told still within the time limit as I applied 04/08/10 (second application), so I insisted that a note be put on their system saying my employer urgently needs a confirmation of my status asap as this application has been on for more than 2 yrs, so do not want it to exceed the time limit for any reason. This was done, I even called later to confirm from another adviser. So the waiting continues.......

Try just after 9am or 4:45pm. Apart from these times it is just impossible to speak with the HO. Good luck!
