To those waiting God would do it as he did for me
It’s been a long journey but at the end, it ended in praise
Congrats. It must have been one hell of a wait, 19months+. Not sure I have your patience. I'm 14months in and given up completely and moved on with my life to start my family. Life is too short to count down 2 years. Congrats again and goodluck.

Hi all

It’s interesting to hear the latest timeframes from the most recent posts here. My husband is Nigerian, we applied for a 309 visa for him plus visas for his two children as well. Applied 23 August 2017, so have been waiting over 15 months now. He did come over last Christmas for two months on a visitor visa, approved 16 Dec and went back 18 Feb. The wait is seriously killing us at the moment!

It appears Pretoria have a longer waiting time compared to others. We are at 11 months and not a single contact, no CO. The wait continues, God help us.

Waiting4eva, I feel your pain. Looks like non-SA applicants cop the brunt of it as my mates who are SA citizens got theirs within 6-8months. I'm approaching the 15month mark and similar to you my missus is Swiss-Nigerian. She couldn't take the wait anymore and I only recently moved to switz. with her. She's completely over it.to wait out 2years of your life is no easy feat.
I hope you get united with ur family very soon. Wish you the best.

My fiancé and I applied for a PMV 300 at the end of Feb 2018, and I am South African.
Our application was front loaded. Other than the automated request for biometrics, we’ve had no contact since.
A visitor visa application was rejected in June (even with a surplus of evidence to show I’d have reason to return to South Africa).
So our only option is to be patient.
I appreciate the updates from others, although unfortunate, it helps to know our experience is shared.
