I sent mine in on June 2nd, they received it on the 4th but didn't get a text from them until the 10th that they had received it and to wait for the receipt in the mail. Hoping it arrives sometimes this week.

On the 10th when I received the text it caught me off guard. Just don't worry too much about it and you'll see it will seem faster. Then again I'm eager to get those letters in the mail lol we'll get it soon don't worry :)

Yes, that's what mine says as well. I just went and got the mail and the hard copy receipts have arrived. Says next step is my biometrics appointment to just wait on the letter with the date and time.
