I will write full details about how it all worked on this thread after I've got the actual visa.

So, it ended up being over 6 and a half months from the date of application to the visa being ready. Disappointing given that we were specifically told five months when we applied in May. They have had many come in since then though (they told us), so are saying 7 months for low-risk ones submitted more recently. If the high-risk ones remain 4-5 months longer to come through (as in the processing times), you might therefore be looking at a year for a high-risk sent now, but for yours sent in February, Gerrywins, it should come through faster than that (based on mine sent in May taking between the 5 months of then and 7 months of now).

Koets, your situation looks similar to ours and you are only a month behind, so you will hopefully get it soon. With luck, the coming Christmas break will speed it up!

Congratulations to everyone who has got theirs and good luck to everyone else!

Thank you for your message. It gives me hope. We need more transparency from immigration though, as much transparency as they give about other pressing issues like the refugee resettlement. I hope the petition for this goes through soon.

Always stay positive Gerrywins and focus on what matters...you and your love and your relationship! The rest will fade and away and any energy spent on those things is energy you can't spend on what matters.

Let's cross our fingers, pray to God and hope beyond all hope that your process will soon be over. I know that high risk countries are often twice as long as low risk but let's beleive that anything is possible and with such good news coming out of Berlin, who knows what is around the corner for you xxx

Yes yes I know...I know how hard it is to stay positive...but I also know how easy it is to get caught up in negative thinking and I just wanted to encourage you to stay strong and focused on what really matters. I wish for you all of the best news possibile and until then I hope that you are able to find the inner strength to keep going.

Thanks will keep that in mind. By the way, I started a thread for applications lodged in African or those involving people with African partners, I think it might be helpful.
