Hello Everyone,

 

I sent an inquiry to DIAC last thursday asking them if they have received my nomination from Tasmania. Today, I received the reply saying that:

 

"I have forwarded your message to your Case Officer for action".

 

There is also the name of CO in the subject line before my TRN. Just wondering if this means I have the CO now. My online status still shows processing commenced.

Hello All,

 

We lodged on 29 June, and application says "processing commenced"... what does this mean?

It Means DIAC have received your application and processing commenced ... it will be change to APPLICATION BEING PROCESSED FURTHER when some one will open and look into your file. if that some one is your Case officer (CO) then he/she will email you about your status and will tell you that he required any thing else or not :-)

Hi Canadiantooz,

If you got the Case Owner's name added in DIACs reply email, then yes you have been allocated to a CO/GSM Team.

 

Don't worry about the online status - some teams update it regularly, some don't.

 

Cheers
