No sorry I dont know them, I would've gotten more details from them.

But I noticed a pattern with my application, so far they've requested information from me 3 times and dates are:
5/02
8/03
9/04
I guess they look at an application at specific time of the month, maybe to do with date of submission?

We only received one request for info on November 2018.
CO interview done Mid-March 2019
Application was submitted late August 2018

That's weird not to worry you or anything but I know two people from community who were granted visas same day as CO interview and one a few days after CO interview. I guess there really isn't a pattern or set of rules.
My fiance still hasn't been interviewed, its very rare to not get a phone call but I'm hoping we don't get called and just get granted a visa.

By the looks of things there is no pattern or systematic approach to these Visas. Some are getting grants prior to others who have applied before them.

It's also worth noting Beirut is processing more applications than before due to consolidation which will surely increase everyone's processing times.

Did you apply for 309 or PMV 300?

Hi Everyone,

My fiance and I received phone calls from our case officer today (Her name is Imane). She called my fiance first and asked him many questions (including stupid questions), his phone call lasted about an hour, mine lasted about 30 mins and it was just basic questions e.g. how we meet, where we want the wedding, living, study and work details and etc

What worried me was the fact that she is still asking for more evidence, she asked me for more photos of us going out and etc and Ive already sent over 20, she said that in one of the photos (which was with our siblings) that we were standing far away from each other? and I told her height factors require that as I was the one who was taking the photo, seemed pretty stupid to me.
Another thing she requested was evidence that we are going to have a wedding here, she said if I can put in a deposit for a venue or something like that and I told her that isn't possible as it requires both of us to look at the venue and decide together, I told her I can send her screenshots of wedding venue inquiries and photography etc and she said that would be sufficient and asked for them asap which I sent after the call.

At the end of the phone call, I asked her if she can give me an estimate of when the visa will be granted she said she cant give me an exact answer but she said because its an old application it would be between 12 to 13 months and she said don't hold me up to this.

I really hope it comes out soon even though I just sent through documentation but I feel like its at the final stages and I wish everyone hears some good news soon.

Hi Ayata,
Hope to receive the grant E mail soon 🙂
As you said that she asked you stupid questions like why you were far from each other in a photo, what else seemed weird to her? And the estimation of 12-13 months because of an old case means you will be granted sooner because of the old case? Estimation of 13 month is short in her mind? 😱
Thank you

Hi everyone, I have a question that it would be appreciated if any one can help me with that
When a sponsor creates a new application for sponsoring his or her partner, the application status will change during the visa process? For example at first it it in received status then changed to initial assessments, further assessment and finally approved?
Is approved the final status? When does it change to approved?
Thank you very much
