The thing I find great is when you have that partner and no fighting or anything just talking out situations to reach a solution - my fiancee is exactly the same which is what I truly love about him.

But yes everything with a visa process adds up and it is not just the visa but the cost of flights etc that add up too .

I must admit though that last time I left my fiancee I slept most of the way back and was just awake for food as when I was asleep I was thinking and crying.

The hard thing for me at the moment is all the rejections I have seen on the forums regarding lodgments from Cairo. I know alot are for spouse applications and not PMV and maybe we just hear the bad ones of these forums and there have been no reports for 2013, but at times I just hope that the case officer can see how we feel about it each other. With it being a HR country my fiancee has an interview on Monday which of course has me thinking about it more lately.

The thing this topic reminds me of is when they did up my local train station a couple of years ago and replaced all the "park and rides" with "kiss and ride".
Aw, Mish. I really hope things come off for you without a hitch, and faster than you expect! I'm equally freaked out because of my fear of failing the medical and then 1) either having to go through the waiver process (and not knowing how long that will take - waiting apart is AWFUL, as you guys know) or 2) not even being offered a waiver - just being told straight out "no." That would be so devastating I don't know what we'd do.

Thanks CG .

It is such a hard process and I really do hope you pass the medicals

I think it is hard when your life is in the hands of someone else.

Luckily Cairo has an average processing times of 9 months .

Now is my time for this thread....

I am now sitting in dubai airport waiting for my next flight home and trying not to cry so much.

Was so hard leaving my fiancee yet again. He told me to be strong and not cry but it is really hard.

The sad thing is this time I took a couple of his tops home with me so that I can smell him.

Awwwww, Mish. I am so sorry. I know just how you feel - I know many of us do. It's okay to cry. You'll see him again soon. Big hugs.

Thank you so much. Hopefully not much longer being apart .

The task of putting together the new evidence to submit when I get home begins. On the plus side ... not much work to do when we hopefully submit the 820

hi kangeroo, i would love to have just 3 months out of aus then 3 months in japan with my sweet heart, and that is what i did on 3 occasions , but because i am on a ds pension our wonderful government did not like that idea,so they got together and decided to change the rules ,and now only pay the pension for just 6 weeks out of aus before they stop paying, knowing full well that no one on a pension can afford to fly back and forth to other countries every 6 weeks, now the huge savings cost to the government for doing this is a big fat zero, and they do not care one bit that you may have a love in another country,not one little bit, and the first thing they ask for when you fill out your application is the money up front please,and then make you wait for months or years before much action on there part, they simply wont even communicate with you that much if at all.
