So,  a new plane ticket had been booked for a departure date of THIS Saturday – over 20 working days since the application for the visa (as advised).

Today I recieved the news I was wating for – the visa has been approved! Unfortunately, there was a sting in the tail – no one mentioned the time required for return mail…until now.

“Your application has been approved and the visa has been issued.   Your passport and visa should be depatched within the next 5 working days.”

5 working days…Wednesday next week.

As the text says “within 5 working days” there is a chance it will arrive before the week is out (notice how I’m ignoring the “should be dispatched” – convenient) so we’re going to leave cancelling and rebooking plane tickets until 4.30 Friday afternoon.  It could happen…?

Right…?
