    Got the visa yipeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

    Thanks guys :biggrin: I thought it was a bit strange alright the label thing but its down as a request by the case officer. Rang London today and they said just need to post the passports over,the girl on the phone said certain case officers ask for them and to follow on with what they request....weird I thought but needs must

    Hi all we got our visa today finally!!! Think we had the worst case officer in the world for dragging her feet. Only when I emailed her last night telling her my company are not happy with the progress did I get an email this morning to say we had it..it was the same a few weeks ago nothing from her for over 2 weeks then 1 call to her and the next day something else for us to do!!! Bit of advice I can give anyone is keep on top of the case officer...
  11. Just thought I'd let all know we got our visa this morning and we are soooooo happy!:biggrin: Quick question: anyone have info on getting a label for our passports? We are in Dublin but read on a blog that we have to get in touch with the London embassy is this correct??? Caroline :wubclub:

    Congrats well done :wubclub: Can I ask how you found out you have the visa the reason I ask is I have had the crazy 12 hours:wacko: I had to ring my co at 2.30am (Irish time) to speak to her as hadnt heard from her in nearly two weeks even though I had sent 3 emails asking the same question!! My employer told me to ring and put pressure on them,then leave it a week and if I still have no news ring again and ask to speak to a manager,she said you will soon see the ball roll!! However havent had to ask for manager as when I spoke to co she said nothing was outstanding that she was waiting for the medical report to come through...they were done on the 26th April!!!! So she said she would leave it till end of week and if heard nothing would email them next mon. And ended the conversation giggling telling me not to be worrying and that it was not policy but she would email me when she had made her decision on the visa so as to ease my mind:confused: So happy with this info we went to bed,however when we got up at 7am I had an email from my co to tell me that I needed to get the medical centre to forward on my partners bits. I thought this a bit odd so dropped into the centre (its beside us)to discover they had NOT sent the medicals,as they were waiting for us to come back with a letter from out G.P. about my partners Epilepsy...totally understandable except for the fact the medical people DID NOT email/ring me to tell me they need this....spot the crazy lady in the medical centre!:arghh: So they did what they had to do while we were standing there and then took great pleasure in ringing me 2 hours later to tell me that it had all gone through...think they wanted a medal!! Something tells me the medical people and the co have messed up in relation to the time frames....not a happy lady at the min:mad: Just thought I'd share my crazy 12 hours...
