Do you know anyone who applied in 2018 and received their PMV visa? Do you also know the people who applied in 2018 and still waiting? On this forum.

So how they will know it is your partner number?
Hello Hope, did u receive anything from them?

I dont know for whatsapp, someone aid once that u need to ask for a copy and they send it to u by mail
If i was u,,,, i woud send a screenshot fo all call and on screenshot of their contact details where we can see their number and their picture
Hello, no I did not receive anythig, only auto generated mails that my application has been submitted. I might do that and maybe make sure they see the person phone number. So that they know.

Its just so sad, our son is now 7months old and my husband hasnt even been able to see him in person. We were planning to travel to Dubai to see each other, but obviously the covid19 situation put a stop to that.

The lengthy time they take to process these visas causes alot of stress for families, its so frustrating when you see other countries granted in under 12months .. we are heading to 16months with zero contact.
Seriously, why does it take so long?? Whay exactly are they doing?? 🤨
Hi Samantha,

I took the liberty of compassing you a letter that should help give the CO some perspective.

Please include your details so it’s easy for
The CO to find your file. Goodluck

Dear CO,

It’s heartbreaking that I write this letter asking for a my appeal to be seen on the basis of certain factors: emotional, socio-economic, family values.

Being apart from my husband has been the most difficult and heart wrenching experience. My husband applied for the tourist visa in hopes that he could come spend some time with our son. My son is 7 months old and he hasn’t seen his father. Biologically, this are crucial times and major development milestone for any child. Ours not different, the plight of this is crazy. I want my son to be able to form a bond with his father and my husband to play a huge role his life. I married the best man and the best father a son can ask for.

I’ve been by myself this whole time, having to cater for my son and my needs. The burden on me is tiring and I’m at the verge of a psychological trauma. The cost and increasing exponentially. The Covid crisis has made us realize the importance of having a partner to shoulder a bit of the burden. We are grateful for this opportunity to be parents but we would really appreciate if we could share the financial responsibilities. Give us that chance to reunite and let my husband be of help.

This government gave us a promise particularly around family ties and values. The institution of marriage is an important one to us. My dreams has been all of us in one household physically and not apart.

We ask you to kindly look into our case and afford us the chance to be a single family unit. We didn’t choose where would born but we have decided to make a life for ourselves. Nigeria might be seen as a high risk country but I tell you this. We are awesome people and we mean no one any harm.
Thankyou so much - we really appreciate that!

I drafted a letter to send to them also - but I like what you have written.
What email address should i use - does anybody know?

Ive sent 2 previous emails and have received an automatic response saying the office is closed and the mailbox is unmonitored 🙄🙄
