Hey Clair

Have you committed to a start date for a job? You/hubby?

At least you've got quite a bit more time than me on the flights front, and if your medicals were clear, it should be a piece of cake!

but here's praying we all get them soon!

Our fees took about 5 days to come out of our accounts.
I would love to think that because they've taken my money, I'll get a visa or three!!!!

Thank you all for the congrats

I really thought it was going to take nearer 4 weeks so its a great surprise to get them turned around in just two weeks (and that was including the long bank holiday weekend). Not sure when we will physically get them sent to us though.

The visas which have been approved are for 3 years and are a 'temp. essential skills visa' for my partner and a 'work visa' on the back of that for me and then 2 student visas for our 2 children (age 7 & 8).

We have a residency application which was submitted on the family category so before the 3 year work visas expire our residency application should be processed (thats the plan )

Really hoping that all of yours come through quickly for you and if ours are anything to go by then hopefully you have not got too long to wait

Its sooo good to finally hear a success story!! Esp for us who have booked our flights!!!

Surely if they are approved it wont take longer to get the stamp in + recorded delivery back to you!! At least know you know they're coming at some point soon

We have received our passports/visa's today so there doesn't appear to be any delays at the moment waiting for the stickers.

Hey Clair
That's awesome news! So pleased for you.
So jealous as well, knowing that if my meds were clear, I'd have my visa now too.
Looks like I'm going to have to delay my flight as cant see this being sorted out in 10 days
I might well need a few other tests/letters etc. so annoyed. There's nothing wrong with me!!!!

Hey HeatherGirl!
I forgot about you!
Thanks. Yes, worried sick. I hope this doesn't happen again when we go the PR route next month!
Got my GP letter so everything will be fine!
What a waste of £25, but oh well. Never mind.
See you on the other side? Hope your hubby's rays get through MA super soon. I know what it's like when everyone keeps telling you they got their visas and you're stuck like kippy without one!

Afternoon to you lot on this thread.

As you've been having a good chat and supporting each other, I've kept out of butting into the conversation . It's lovely when I see a thread like this. Same as that Silver Fern thread. Everyone helping everyone.

Just wanted to say congrats to jjsebba and clair_hannan on gaining your visas & for those waiting in limbo.
