Even we are getting twitchy and still ages to go until the one-year-after-medicals deadline. I was ok until the clock started ticking. Vettemaster, what on earth can be taking this long - if there was any problem with the medicals surely you would have been told by now.

Enormously frustrating. Can't help you in any way except to keep for you both.
Kaye5, patience of a saint never!!! I just try stay positive and realistic to make sure the waiting does not knock me out . Its difficult waiting and not knowing the final outcome and having plans that can never be totally planned until the answer finally arrives, very frustrating for sure .

Hi All, just checking in, We've still not heard a sausage! we had to re-do our police checks, we ordered the police checks locally not reading fully the request, they were the wrong ones for immigration (£10 each) the ones they wanted were the £45 each ones, to be honest they were the same but the immigration ones has a scanned photo of us on.... all one big rip off really. I think if the word immigration is envolved the price doubles on everything. I sent an email 2 wks ago asking if the police checks had been received and all ok. I got an email back saying, high volumns at the minute will reply 2-3wks! So the wait goes on. I want to put our house up for sale in January so really need to know by then.... starting to get doubtful now if we'll hear by xmas... time moves so fast and immigration moves so slow!

it is pretty ridiculous how long it takes and how much they charge as me and my girlfriend needed police certificates from Denmark, the certs cost nothing, emailed them on Monday arrived by Thursday, I emailed on Monday for a military police cert and it was free and arrived on Saturday. ACPO police vert sent over two weeks ago and £90 for the two of us and not a peep from the ACPO yet although they have cashed the cheques

Hope your immigration moves quickly soon, will keep my fingers http://images.ibsrv.net/ibsrv/res/sr...ingerscrossed:

For all of you in this thread

Our ACPO took about 2 wks, I think once they cashed the cheque we received them a few days later, so they should hopefully arrive this wk. Thanks and good luck to you and your girlfriend.

You could start the process of putting your house on the market. The "worst" that can happen is that you'll get an offer which you can either accept or reject. Don't know where you are located but if in England, there's little in the way of upfront costs.

In Scotland it's a different matter - we had to shell out £610 for a home report, which they still have here. House been on the market since August - not had any interest. According to our estate agent (hm...) market is always dead November to January - then starts to revive again February up until summer hols.

Well after my post the other day..... I've received an email request today to say we are in the final stages and to send all copies of our passports within 30 days and our PR will expire 18/8/2013.....omg!!

I live in Bedford, East Anglia. I must check on the passport bit of all pages, if they need every page, even the blank ones? a lot of photo copying! can anyone comment on this?

Blimey - right out of the blue!! (As these things always are.)

Many congratulations! Hope you've got the champagne out!

Maybe this is the start of the "domino effect" for the rest of us waiting?

In answer to your question about passports, I've copied them all in readiness (I live in hope). Not sure if that is right or not, but I think most others have done them all too.

Really happy for you!!

So.... who's next?

As anyone considered starting a career in copying and obtaining documents for people for the visa process. Judging by all the documents required and all the copying its sounds like a niche to be filled

Congrats!
