Hello

We applied May 12 2003, had our Med's requested on 28th Jan, had them done on 13th Feb, sent them off on 19th Feb, just waiting for our pre-grant now....

Don't worry, as soon as we get it the whole world will know!

Hi Calin

We sent off our app in April 03, our Credit card got charged in May 03, got our requests for Meds & Police Clearance in Feb 04.

Have sent off our Meds (got an appointment quick quick which was great).

We live in Dubai - UAE and have to get police clearances from here and South Africa. We have sent of the South African ones and when I called today I was told they are still not ready and to ring again next week. It takes minimum of 28 working days tehy said.

We will arrange for the UAE ones this week or next to get that sorted out ASAP.

We have until 22nd April to submit our documents.

Kind Regards
Tarryn

Hi Ige

Dubai in the UAE is fantastic. We have lived here for the past 6 years and love the place. I was wondering today if I will ever be able to slot back into "normal world" life... time will tell.

UAE is made up of 80% expatriates and 20% local Emirati people - so yes, its full of Foreigners.

Its very cosmopolitan, I get everything (and more) I need in terms of supplies, food etc, Shopping here is great, food is great. Its just great.

Being a Muslim country there are some restrictions but as a Women I drive, work, wear shorts etc etc. It is so easy to be happy here which is also a reason we have stayed on so long.

Kind Regards

I applied in March 2003, the only pending matter is the payment of the 2nd instalment. I sent an email to my CO confirming my intention to pay, and she told me that she was going to retrieve my file and answer me within 2 weeks. Now its 2 1/2 weeks and no news......
