My fiance is coming on a tourist visa while we wait for our PMV! The separation is too hard.

The separation is indeed too hard. After going on holiday for 3 weeks in Sept 14, I had to sponsor my fiancee's holidays to Mauritius for 2 months in Dec 2016. She left 3 weeks back and now the separation is even harder. God knows whether I would be able to get that PMV this Sep 2017. Let's hope we all hear the good news soon

My husband was here for Dec 2016/Jan 2017 I cant believe how I go from so happy when he is here to so sad when he goes back, one thing this has taught me, I will never take being together for granted. I saw a UK one whose application was from May 2016 was granted the other day, does anyone know what month they are up to here in SA? I applied June 2016. I think I read somewhere they grant in date order assuming of course you meet all the criteria?

UK is low risk country, maybe that's why. I see even Canada being granted within 3 months and just few days back someone got hers in 1 month from Malaysia (All PMV applicants). SA and Mauritius are high risk countries but SA Citizens' applications are processed much faster than Non SA. I really do hope yours would be processed asap so that I can get a hope, else I believe mine would be definitely over 12 months as it's not too straightforward application for mine.

Briessie (someone who posted into this thread itself) said a friend of hers/his got the grant in late Oct 16 and applied in May 16. No idea where they are at and I am in wrong position to send them an email as well as I applied end of Sept 16. It seems on this forum not too many applied through Pretoria, so its hard as well to get current status of those not in this forum unless agents can give some news...

@Hopeful123 - Even though your status changed to AIP, have you ever heard anything from your CO?

Hi, no we have heard nothing unfortunately. We used an agent and I was told that if all is in order we might not hear from a CO, as far as i understand its only if they need to clarify something or need a document, etc are you contacted by a CO, is this correct?
