I can assure you that immigration finger is a serious complaint.. in fact, I myself suffer from it, and despite having been to several doctors, have not yet been advised of any cure.

Please let me know if you hear of one, I'm almost down to the knuckle on my right index finger. Blood all over the keyboard and everything.

Helen.

I'm seeing the odd case of Immigration Finger Syndrome out there & nowhere to confess the ailment.

Thread re-opened.

Anymore cases of Immigration Finger Syndrome out there presently?

I read of it but it seems to have become a hidden ailment.

I think they're all in denial. We can all spot them but no one's going to admit to it - and that is the first step on the road to recovery.

It is a known fact that the condition can be mysteriously and immediately cured by the simple addition of sticky blue paper to a particular type of official document

I wish I was at the point where I had a reason to check for the wonderful 'approved' word!

In my own limbo waiting for a medical-delayed work visa. Will submit EOI once I know the medical was accepted.

This is a very old thread, from 2009 when we were waiting just like you.
This thread has been resurrected by Bevs because so many people are still suffering from it and need our help and support to get through it!!

Ah ! There you have it. It's called Immigration Finger Syndrome.

Robdon explained it way back in 2009.

Immigration finger will run its course within an arbitary six month period. Symptoms can however persist for much longer, with many long term sufferers having the slow progressive strain which can last up to eighteen month.

Patients reacts differently to the news of carrying immigration finger and can go through the various stages of the disease until acceptance is achieved.

The first stage is disbelief. Most people are shocked that it could happen to them and this can lead to periods of extreme anxiety especially about the unknown. Despair and anger are also common and often accompanied by feelings of concern that perhaps the person has done something wrong to deserve this.

Some individuals use humour as a psychological defence mechanism; whilst others will become helpless and often start to bargain with various deities. This first stage usually lasts from a few days to a few weeks.

The second stage is depression which is usually a reaction to the diagnosis. The depression is mild to moderate in intensity and needs family support, often accompanied by cake, chocolate and alcohol. Only in rare cases is any type of medical therapy required.

The duration of the depression can last for several weeks but soon fades as the person moves through to the final stage of acceptance and the blue sticking plaster is finally applied.

Sadly for some the unpleasant syptoms will persist long after the sticky blue plaster has been applied and long term conditions can occur.

Honestly, I think you're getting a bit overly concerned. Yours is only the very mild form at this stage and you have a long way to go before the full symptoms develop.

I did this a lot when I got the blue stickers.
Now just waiting for the 2 years before I can get the restriction removed, then another 3 before I can get citizenship, and then another 6 months before I can get a passport - it's a long stretch ahead!
