Now we have about a 3-5 year wait ..... heyho, at least we can get lots of visits in and do lots of research and get a cracking business plan together..

I am just chuffed that for the last year of umming and aahhhing, we have finally just gone for it....

Good luck.

It is difficult for entrepreneurs to do the patient waiting thing!!

Cheers

Hi Strawberry,
Good luck in your application! We applied for Federal Entrepreneur Visa in November 2008 through Buffalo. ( We are from the UK, living in USA, on an Entrepreneur Visa here ) We received a file number about 6 weeks later. We were called for interview in May (7 months after application was filed)...and received paperwork for medicals yesterday!...so less than a year. We were expecting at least 2 years wait. CIC web site states 2- 5 years processing time for applications filed through Buffalo. So maybe we were just lucky, to get this far so quickly, I dont know, but here's hoping your wait won't be as long as you think!
