Missnoir I presumed you loadged in Madrid . sit and relax because you won't hear anything for a long time unless they need any additional documents. Madrid processes visa between 7 to 9 months at the moment . you might wanna join the Madrid thread to get an idea . I loadged my husband's in Madrid around June this year

No single word since from the AHC Nairobi Kenya.

As all of you here in this forum,my fingers are crossed for further communication like allocation of a CO, request for Medical and any other documentation, in case required. Lets us relax in the most frustration period in our lives in this wait and hear world.

Best wishes to everybody including myself.

Regards,
Hassan
Hassan you might wanna join the Kenyan thread to know more about processing time

Well I lodged it online and they asked which embassy was the most convenient to go for an interview (if necessary) so we selected London cos it's easier to get to with the Eurostar. Maybe that was a mistake...waiting times in London are now 10-14 months.

You're so lucky
My high commission gave my husband a tourist visa for 6 months single entry when he was meant to get a spouse visa with multiple entries. We even paid for my husband's Indian spouse visa but the consulate handed my husband's passport with a tourist visa stamp And we didn't have enough time to get it changed so just took what we got

It's been 11 months since my husband had to fly back to Australia and life's been hell since he left. I don't think the word "hell" properly describes the situation we both are in right now. Worse is when the AHC doesn't give us any proper update as to how far along they are in processing our application.

Mind you 95% of the Indian applicants get their partner visas approved within 8-10 months even though it's a high risk country. I'm still stuck here for 15 months and the tunnel seems to be getting longer even after all the updated paperwork has been provided

Good Luck to you! Wish you a timely grant

Kind Regards,
Becky

Your visa will be processed in Madrid not London. Anyway all the best and just forget about the application while they process it .

No security checks for Indian nationals (who haven't resided in any of the countries which do need ASIO checks) , Thank the LORD!! I think those are only for applicants from Middle Eastern and African countries from what I've read on the forum.

My Indian PCC expired because my case officer forget to check it's date and then requested for a new one. The one that expired was issued by VFS India in Brisbane and didn't need my passport to have my husband's name added to it (Indian passports have residential address and name of spouse column on the back page).

But the passport office in India needed me to get my husband's name and residential address updated, without it they wouldn't issue me a PCC. So had to get my passport (which had 7 more years on it) re-issued which took 41 days to get back from the passport office immediately after which I applied for my new PCC and submitted it to VFS Australia on the same day.

Now it'll be a week on Monday 29, 2014 since AHC received my PCC along with updated proof of relationship and I haven't heard anything from my case officer which is kind of stressing me out especially when the last time I spoke to her she said that it won't take long to finalize the application as she was only awaiting the submission of my new PCC. I emailed her on last Sunday but there was no reply
I'm gonna try to get hold of her tomorrow, hoping she will give me some update/information on what's going on.

Thank you for your encouraging words
Wish you a timely grant! Good Luck!

Kind Regards,
Becky
