    Default I am tired of waiting for visa

    I am just tired of waiting and waiting for my visa
    who understands how much I am longing for the day I move to NZ?
    how long should I stay? How long should my heart beat fast when I think about NZ, here no one can understand how much I am longing for.
    Why the visa officer does not contact me to say that your visa is ready
    Why they do not understand I JUST WANNA GO TO PARADISE
    SOOOOOOO TIRED OF WAITING, Just need to cry

    Have you tried to contact INZ directly, Afsi? At least they can tell you why it's taking so long and you can ask them any other questions you have about the visa at the same time. I think many people get frustrated at the length of time it takes for their visas to come through. It would be a good idea to get in touch with them in case anything is wrong and maybe they have overlooked your application. It is probably just taking a long time but it's best to check.

    Thanks for your advice Mother Bear, You are right. I may send an email to the INZ to check any new news.

    It is 46 days that I have applied for student visa and about 10 days ago I called to the visa officer, she told me my application process has not been yet finalized and she will contact once my application is finalized. That's why I have to wait but I can't!
    Regards,
    Afsi

    Default hi

    hi afsi,

    do not give up! it is absolutley ok to wait this amount of time, I had to wait up to 3 month fo rmy work permit last year. I was also nervous but it will be fine. You have not even waited for 2 month so no worries!! really!

    think positiv!
    if there would be something wrong they will tell you and ask you to submit missing stuff...

    cheers and all the best, anita

    Dear Anita

    Thanks for making me hopeful. Your reply made me to be patient. You are right. Although in NZ immigration Dubai office website has been written that student visa process takes 30-45 days but it surely takes longer. Yesterday, I went to our local NZ embassy and the staff told me that I should wait AT LEAST! 3 months! I also heard some other people who have waited even more than 3 months.
    Anyway the delay would be ok but I can not tolerate the reject!. I wish to get my visa soon.
    Thanks and Best Regards
    Afsi

    I don't want to make things worse for you, but it is now Ramadan and, if the Dubai INZ branch is anything like other companies/businesses in this region, everything will slow down for the next month because working hours are less and people don't work very fast .

    OOOOOOh no mother bear
    Then I surely kill myself
    But Mother bear did you know the opening hours of Dubai office are 8:30-12? then imagine what will happen if they lower their working hours in Ramadan!!!

    Thanks for reminding me about the Islamic events in Dubai offices, it helps me to be patient more.

    If they finish at 12 perhaps it won't be so bad because most companies are working up to either 12 o'clock or 2 p.m. maximum. It just seems like they don't want to do any work during this time.
