Anyone else out there waiting for their visa got a really uncommunicative Case Officer? We are really anxious now for some news, in particular, how much longer our visa is expected to take. We send e mails but very RARELY get any replies. Any replies we DO get are vague and unhelpful. Surely these people should be able to tell us how our application is going?
We really do need to know soon whether we are going to get our visa or not. Our house is four weeks now into being sold, hubby who is doing supply teaching whilst we wait for our visa doesn't know whether or not to take work he has been offered after the Spring school holiday and we don't know if we will need to organise temporary accommodation for ourselves when the time comes for us to move out of our house.
