I honestly don't think the average is based on anything other than them covering their butts in case it does take that long. Sure is a killer though, the way the uncertainty ups the already massive stress of trying to plan an international move. I also have to wonder if they are trying to stem the flow of immigrants, given the downward trajectory of the economy.

Got the email today that my PMV Visa was granted!
I totally did the bounce up and down I'm sooooo excited happy dance .

Can't believe the wait is finally over, it definitely felt like forever.
Now to look at travel plans.
I'm totally through the roof with the happy now.

I must say that when I had read that the processing times had increased to 12-15 months it had me rather worried that it would take longer than it actually ended up being in the end.

I hope everyone that's still waiting gets theirs sooner rather than later.

Hey Charisma! Congratulations! So exciting!

Who was your CO? We submitted my application on March 9th and our CO, ML, said I am set for finalization "by November 2014" which I am hoping means sometime in October.

Happy happy days!

I called the embassy today for a status on my May 2014 PMV application. The gentleman said that he "thought" a CO had been assigned, but wasn't sure. Then he stated that the current processing time is 12-15 months, which has thrown us into a tailspin. When we submitted the application, they said 5-9 months. We don't understand how over a 5 month period, the processing time has grown by 7 months!! I'm very happy to see some being approved (congratulations, Charisma!), so I'm hoping that the 2nd Quarter 2014 applications will be done this year. Does anyone know if the 12-15 month guideline applies only to applications lodged now, or does it apply to all applications currently in queue?

12-15 months is very worrying. Surely that is just them covering themselves...and actually approvals are faster
