I was preapproved last June. Applied Nov 2021, booked my biometrics on 16 Dec for 15 march (would’ve rather done it earlier, but my lawyers picked that date). I’ll take what I can get, not worth the risk, and turned it into a birthday trip!
Hey, Martin, since you just finished the process, I’m assuming you’re still in good contact with your lawyer. Do they have confidence in the to-be-established APMA speeding up the immigration process? My lawyer has been drifting away from me since our application was two years ago so I wanted to ask you. It’s brave to invest in the program at this time because like me, I’m going crazy, especially when my children ask me why can’t they move to Europe since I promised them happily back in 2021 we’ll live by the ocean😅
Thanks Kari. Wow I’m glad I got my biometrics done on Feb 6. I wanted to try to reschedule until sometime this month since I already had a trip booked (I am back in Albufeira now) but I am glad I didn’t try that. I just hope I get final approval and my card before I have to leave again in 3 months
As I’m one of those, I am inclined to being optimistic and grasping at
straws as a coping mechanism, so I’ll go ahead and say “some of those
folks may have forgotten to update the database when they were
pre-approved, so it may not be quite 50”.
