Yes, since getting married in 2017 we have spent 9 months together in total. Last year we spent a total of 3 months together. We’ve decided not to see each other again until the visa is granted now based on me unable to get time off work until June this year, me having to travel alone with our 14 month old son and the unrest in Iraq at the moment.

Yeah I believe the delay in our visa grant definitely has something to do with the unrest in Beirut.

Has your fiance had his medicals done?

Wishing you all the best with your applications and hoping we hear Great news by February 2020.

I’ve applied for a PMV for my partner in Iraq June 2019.
It’s been 7 months. Not a single email or anything from the office. I’ve emailed and sent out messages in regards to the safety of my fiancé due to the protests and everything that is happening back in iraq. But nothing. ��

I’m thinking of going back to iraq and getting married and changing my application from prospective marriage visa to Partner visa.
As it’s showing shorter processing time than fiancé visa.

What are the steps I would need to take?
Thanks
Yes - everything is complete. Our agent promised a 7-9 month wait before grant. Front loaded application.
It’s very disappointing that we suffer due to what the country is going through.

Apparently they say many visas are coming out this February. Especially for those who have been waiting for too long.

Hoping you’re from the first of those grants.
I’m on 7 months wait and I’m getting very impatient.

You’re doing really well. Well done and all the best.

He is from Iraq
Have you tried applying for a visitor visa?

That would be pretty amazing if they are focusing on the backlog of visa’s. The longer it is the harder it gets and I have to chase the negative thoughts away.

No, we got advice from a migration agent to not apply for a visitor visa as it will probably get rejected based on not having enough incentive to go home. They told us if you get a visitor visa rejected they it can have a negative affect on the spouse visa application.

You can probably contact the DET now that the 17 months has passed?

it is unfortunate you have had to spend so much time apart, but god willing, your visa comes soon! The whole arab world will soon be 'high risk' so lets pray we all get our visa's asap!

Did you use an agent?

No, I can’t call and get answers until it has been past the processing time of 20 months unfortunately.

I have a good friend who’s a registered migration agent so she assisted us every step of the way with our application.

Thank you everyone for your well wishes 😊
