Arrow Offshore Visa Waiting Room - who is waiting more than a year?

I thought it would be nice to have a list of members who wait for their partner visa (spouse, pmv, de facto) for more than a year. List is simple: username, where it was lodged and the date of lodgement. I posted informations about members I know about. If there is somebody ( and I am sure there is, unfortunately) who lodged offshore application for some kind of partner visa before more than a year and still waits for his/her decision feel free to give us your info to update this list.



26 months:
kangaro - (Berlin) 06.01.2012

21 months:
kikstaa - (Vienna) 06.2012.

13 months:
akinawamomo - (Cairo) 30.01.2013

My first intention was to make transparent list of people who wait more than a year in one piece. I am confused about what to put as your date of lodgement because you received decision for the first one and there is a gap between the first and the second application. MRT is another story. As I said, I am confused and if someone have an idea about this I would like to hear it.

Yes, I followed their (gerrywins and someuser's) progress almost from the beginning and I was ecstatic when they received their grants. I am sad that a thread like this is even possible to exist - in modern era and 21st century technology nobody should wait 2 years for their visa.

You are right sunnysmile, nobody should wait 2 years for their visa and I could not imagine that when we applied, two years ago, we would still be waiting with no guarantees and no idea on how much longer we have to wait for an answer.
