Will the processing times effect us because we applied way before this.

Yea definitely, we will keep in touch and would be great to meet up...
No it shouldn't... We are like 6-10 people here n the forum who applied through Pretoria but nobody received their grant yet though some applied from May-June 2016... My medical has been cleared online (No CO requested, I just went ahead and did it after applying for PMV on 30 Sept)

TBH i don't know, but you can ask your agent. Yea not sure why Pretoria is so slow now. Someone from Mauritius (Non SA Citizen) got her visa within 2 months when she applied in Dec 2014 and I know few more SA Citizen who got within 1-2 months when they applied 2-3 years back.

I think most embassies are processing on 9-15 months now except Germany and Philippines which are processing within 2-5 months it seems

I also thought the same... It's because of scam people, genuine people like us are having to bear the consequences...

True....I heard there was an article few weeks ago in the Australian paper regarding partner visas and last year there was 70 000 applicants and there was alot of false applications as well. There were some that was 16 and applying for partner visa.
