We finally got our visa yesterday. The visa for me was released earlier. The process took about 1 week from the date we did the medical check up to get the visa released. But my husband and the dependants who are under him had to wait for almost 3 weeks for unknown reason.
So another step is done.
Next is to get the flight tickets booked.
Actually, we want to depart two weeks earlier than allowed that is one week before the registration date at the university that is 1 Dec 2009 considering various factors. But the procedure needed to be taken for it seems that plan is unlikely for us.
