I don't normally have a moan or whinge (well not on here anyway!) but am so FED UP. We e-lodged our 475 visa on 3.4.08 - and we originally thought we'd have a visa by now but with the back-log we don't even have a Case Officer yet.
It's frustrating to see there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to the speed of applications being processed. Like everyone else we can't make any plans which isn't easy and very boring!
The added stress is that when we applied to be on a Place in the Sun we thought we'd have our visa by now - we'd get flights to SA, they'd find us a house, and done! Not so...... we are now going to be on TV, prime-time 1 hour special on Channel 4 telling the nation we hate our jobs and this country and probably without a visa in hand
So my OH is likely to get sacked (esp as they filmed on site - woops) and we'll be out of work and a house while waiting for the visa so might have to do what is now known as a 'Cunnah10' and come over and wait for the visa.. And it's unlikely he'll be given a glowing reference is it????
I know the visa might come in this time - but after being ona reccie, it is so depressing to be back here without anymore news. Honestly, I could cry.
Martin & Val - could your mum help us out please???? x x x
