Talking Got It!!!!! (Request for Passports That Is!!!!!)

Hi to everyone who has replied to my threads (few and far between!) since we originally applied for a Skilled Visa back in 2005.

The good news is that we have finally been sent the request for passports so that our 'permanent resident visa's' (that sounds so goood, I just have to put it in italics!) can now be issued.

After over two years of being 'in limbo' and alternating between the highs and lows that are all to do with being at the mercy of an unknown immigration official we can finally make some long term plans and re-gain control of our destiny once more.

With regard to the process and dealing with CIC London, all I can say is that from my personal experience, and bearing in mind the sheer volume of applications being processed there (will the last person to leave the country please turn off the light!!), the experience has in retrospect been relatively painless. In fact having to deal with some government officials and depts (inland revenue you know who you are!!) in this country has been like pulling teeth in comparison.

Thank to everyone who has offered advice and assistance during the process and please keep an eye on future postings for an update.

Best regards,
The Fletcher family.
