Thanks CollegeGirl, I was also doing a pretty good panic but while that's good news for us it's not so much for our Pakistani friends.

That's still the time-frame they're quoting. There have been some 6-7 month grants out of London lately, but I'd count on 8-9 just in case.

Thanks

A friend is planning a wedding and I'm starting to realise how much harder it is to go through this profess when your visa outcome will partially determine your wedding date!

Yeah, you're not kidding. That's why we're having a small civil ceremony in Aus shortly after my PMV is (I hope!!!!!) granted, and then a big friends and family one in the US later. Of course, a PMV denial would be a giant wrench in the works.

Our wedding is set for 12 April 2014 and we're at 7 months waiting and the countdown has begun. Hopefully J won't be getting off the plane and coming directly to the ceremony but if could very well happen lol.

CollegeGirl - just to add to the collective knowledge, it does appear that re-doing your police/medical moves the first entry date.

I submitted police checks in June, but I re-did it when the medical was done in September. The inital entry date is now in September, rather than June, so they have used the later certificate.
