Thank you everyone. I heard from them today that they are doing more overseas assessments. Don’t know what that means really. Just hope this will end soon. Can’t take this anymore. Pity my husband, I can’t even recognise him anymore, lost too much weight.

@ Shgizmo very kind of you about your hubby, so heartbroken situation. Yeah I think what they mean is they’ve been traveling to overseas to interview and assess some applicants as I pm you yesterday. Just hold your peace it won’t be long I guess when they concluded their overseas assessment they’ll finalize your application.

@papag May I ask your partner is from which part of Africa and are you the applicant or sponsor? We too received the same after one year auto generated mail and 6 months later a call for hubby to attend interview. No news after that till few days ago that overseas assessments are still being done. Hubby is from Nigeria and was told to go to Lagos for interview via video call. Interview lasted 1 hour 40 mins.

My wife is from Nigeria and I am the sponsor.
I really hope we get some contact soon as the wait is extremely frustrating

@papag I can understand how you feel. The wait is tormenting the both of us especially when there is no news and no updates.

Hi. We applied for Prospective Marriage Visa on June 16th 2018. Medicals completed 21st of June 2018. My fiancť is from Zimbabwe. Interview held in person in Harare 21st June 2019. Today July 3rd 2019 request for repeat medicals as they have expired which he completed this morning. They said in the interview that they would request additional information if required to process our application. All they asked for was the medicals so hoping to hear something soon after they are processed.

With your partner being from Nigeria, I know they are extremely cautious when assessing Nigerian applications due to their ‘reputation’ and known terror links and sadly I believe they are judged a lot more harshly (this is what I have heard from a friend who’s husband is Nigerian and the advice she received from an Immigration Lawyer). Unfortunately this delays applications and I have seen in lots of forums that Nigerians have the longest wait time sadly. I hope you hear of an outcome soon. Fingers crossed I know the wait is agonizing!
