Why? To what end? It won't help you and might very well just frustrate you further!

The only thing that frustrates me are your posts, which of are no help to me, or answer of my questions.

I doubt it will be any sooner than 25 weeks, the embassy has advised further delays due to the extra work over the Olympics.

Yeah that's the email address but you need to ring the visa appointment line and explain your situation, they should then give you a code to put in the email which stops it being automatically deleted.

I got a reply email saying that it takes 3-4 days for non-urgent queries, and until the end of the World (or Swansea win the League which is pretty much the same) to answer anything which means they have to get off their backsides.

Still, only myself to blame!

That's the standard automated reply thats generated when they receive your e-mail. You'll get another one soon telling you that your case is still under review and that you'll be contacted as soon as there as been an outcome. I've had 3 waivers and each one as arrived the day before I'm due to travel, I found that if you've gone beyond the time that the Embassay is currently advising(22 weeks at the minute) and you e mail them reminding them of your travel dates that they try to resolve things for you even though they give you the standard response to your e-mail. I'm due to travel next Wednesday, I emailed them last Monday and received my email asking me to send my passport this Monday and they picked my passport up at 7 Tuesday morning.

If, and it's a fairly big if, you need a waiver of ineligibility, you haven't got a cat in hells chance of getting it processed before the 1st November now. That's the bad news, or one bit of it anyway.

On the other hand, depending on what your offences are and whether or not they invlove CIMT, you may not need a waiver of ineligibility and you might be granted the visa much more quickly. Meaning you can make your November travel deadline. That's the good news, or at least as good as it gets - the "best case scenario" if you will.

And then again, neither of the above things could happen. The embassy says you don't need a waiver but they don't approve the visa either, and tell you to apply for ESTA instead. Only now you would be applying for ESTA and having to declare a denied visa application. And this is the second piece of troublesome news, as that visa denial could severely affect your ability to be approved for ESTA before November.

Tough isn't it?

EDIT: Oh dear. Just seen your post in the other thread, and that basically means you need to be looking at the first scenario I outlined. You're NOT going on 1st November, period.
