I know how frustrating the wait can be, and I often thought of giving up and going home, but I'm glad I didn't. And the good news is, because it took so long for the first stage, I'm nearly ready to apply for permanent residency. So, try not to stress and worry, and enjoy your new country and the time with your family and new friends. Before you know it, it will all be over and be one of those stories you tell your grandkids. Lol Merry Christmas and Happy New Residents Year!
18 months onshore and from a low-risk country. That is wrong and sad!
But congrats ...
I'm the Sponsor!
