Goodluck to everyone who is still waiting on a loved one I know its pretty dreadful.
I'm considering going back for a holiday and spending a month or so there.. I'm really worried once I get there, immigration might request something that I could only provide if I was back home lol... maybe I am stressing out for nothing or over-stressing because I am just so keen to have this whole ordeal over and done with!

Congrats to all the lovely people posting here still even after their visa/partner visa's have been granted.
Much appreciated!
If you are the sponsor remember the the visa for Egypt is only valid for a month so if you stay any longer than a month you will need to extend it at the passport office .... I would not wish this on anyone! They are a nightmare to deal with ... I had to go there to get my visa stamp put in my new passport so I could leave the country and it was a nightmare to deal with the office.

Exclamation

HAHA!
Mish!!!! I know! Yes, I am the sponsor.

But I'm not going to Egypt, I'm going to Sudan! That is where my partner is.. the visa is being processed in Cairo.

I was there for 3 months the first time I went.. I hadn't realised it was only for 1 month! It was a run around to renew and I had to pay a fee that was 3 times the price of the actual visitor visa. I can't say I was disappointed as I was in no hurry to leave my partner..

Definitely didn't run around the second time I went there though due to work..had it all sorted from here.

I was actually reading in a forum here that if you are a regular visitor and see each other, your visa processing is delayed as they believe you are able to be with each other rather than apart like all the others waiting in line, hence its not a priority!!! Is this true? On the contrary, its the opposite!

Hey Mish
I heared once you exceeded your extended stay in egypt, you only pay 150 E.P at the airport.

Me and my children passed the extended stay. I am bit worried but my partner asked few egyptians and told him not to worry.

Lol cool. Cairo does so many. Good to have another country on board .

No difference as you may know Cairo is by the book and no favouritism. They process in order they are received and noone gets priority.

There appears no difference if you visit or no on the time frames. Sydney has visited once during the processing for a week and is looking at same time as mine and I visited twice with 5.5 weeks and another visit just after that the case officer knew about and Sydney is looking at being the same time frame.

You could probably do either knowing Egypt .

I had no visa stamp at all so that was my problem.

The applicant being from Sudan could change everything. I think they under go ASIO checks unlike those from Egypt or Morocco but I am not 100% sure. If they need one they are usually asked for form 80 (if not lodged with application at about 6 months). I hope they don't need to because it will make the processing time longer

Cool. They still don't send off until 6 months I believe .

All you can do is wait.

How long still your chosen wedding date?
