Were you able to see file transferred on ecas is that how you know Oct 28th?
My Dm on sponsorship was e-mailed to me Nov. 4th
What is Appendix A?
What is letter received Nov 18th? Visa approved?
Thanks for info
As of now in my Ecas stating as :
We received your application on July X, XXXX
Nothing else in my ecas, October 28th it shows on the Post Mail Letter that Manila Embassy will mail to you or your partner in Manila.
Maybe next week they will update my Ecas into In process once they will receive my passport but it depends and nobody knows.
Appendix A - The form that attached on the letter (information regarding your Family Member and Passport Numbers)
Nov 18th - It's not visa it only letter to submit my passport.
If you got approved on Nov 4th it may take you awhile to proceed to the next stage ( the Passprt Request Letter)
If you get luck you might receive it next week.
Good Luck and Enjoy each day even waiting is the hardest part to do.
