My husband applied in Cairo where the person who emails the acknowledgement letter is your case officer.

One thing to remember too about Kenya is that from what we have seen on this forum the wait is around 18 months due to the wait on security checks.

Just remember what happened in 2011 may not be how do they things in 2014.

Dear Mish,

Thanks for this. My Police Clearance Certificate was submitted with the application. It is medical clearance that have not been done yet. Unlike other places, where applicants submite the Medical clearnce with the application, here you cannot do that, you wait for the AHC to tell you to do so.

On the other hand, the applications they are handling at AHC, Nairobi are too much, this was the fact that humanitarian visas given out are very huge here due to presence of four (4) large refugee camps in the country. Kenya hosts the largest number of refugees in the world.

Despite these, in 2013, I know an applicant who was give his partner visa withing 9 months.

Have a good weekend Mish
