I've heard of that too. Do you know it they are actually capped? I heard partnership visas can't be capped but I don't know if that's true or not....of that's the case I hope July 1 rains visa's for all of us!

Yes, with the two 888's (one of them, my partners brother in law, is actually working in thier air force. So if he vouches for me one could think I should be pretty safe to let in ).

On top of that, we have also proved that our finances are really good (about a year ago I sold a successfull IT-company and she has been running another company that has been doing really good).

I can't see why this is taking so long.

Legally and officially, partner visas cannot be capped. Only PMVs can be capped. Each embassy, however, does have their own quotas they set each year (and actually each month as well) that they stick to. Toward the end of the financial year, visa grants are usually few and far between.

Ooh I see! Thanks for specifying. I applied for a PMV myself so I assumed all of them were capped.

I had to wait almost nine months for my PMV. I survived by keeping in touch with my honey, readying myself for the move, and by keeping my perspective - remembering there are high-risk applicants who often have to spend 18 months to two years away from their partners waiting for their visas. We are the lucky ones.

Thanks CollegeGirl! I communicate with my love 24*7 (minus a few hours of sleep).

Doesn't matter what I do - going to/from work or having a break, cleaning, washing, cooking, shopping or doing sport - he is always with me on skype or viber.
We like having our meals together and we even learnt to watch movies together when we both leave the skype conversation open, mute and have the little square of each other in the corner

It's like we have been living together despite the 14,000 kilometres between us, but it's still so hard and painful...

Btw my fiancÚ is from a high-risk country...
