Family visa - normal duration?

Hi guys

I submitted the application for my wife's family residence visa on 12-December and the checking receipt mentions that I should follow up on www.moi.gov.qa after 3 days. Its almost 8 days now and the status still shows as "under process". Is this normal? If they have accepted the documents, does that mean that I will get the visa for sure? My salary is above 10K so there is no prblem there.

Ismailerum thanks. Did you experience this before? Do you think it would be helpful if I go down to the immigration and check with them?

Berbaroon

I am only afraid that after 10-15 days, they might reject it and then I would have wasted time...coz I really miss my wifey :)

If it shows Under process you will get the visa in a few days for sure :)

Thanks people...Seasons did u experience this before? I am only worried because when i applied for my wife's visit visa, i got it on the very next day..

there is a bit of a delay in processing family visas at MOI because the process moved from MOL to MOI. You're looking probably at around 2 weeks delay at the moment. Nothing to do with your visa :o)

Berbaroon

So does this mean that the approval of Labour Ministry is not required on new family visas now? I am assuming that the MOL approves the application when you submit it and then you have to pay the fees to get your visa process started. I am saying this because at the time of receiving the application, the lady at the counter did not charge anything to my credit card

It took me 9 days before I got the visas approved. But I've read 1 guy here that after 2 weeks of application, the visa application was denied. Not telling you to worry, but expect the unexpected, it happens sometimes.

Now you have made me neurotic...I hope I get it soon..

I heard that they are having some training programms in emigration dept.. may be that s the reason for delaying .. dont worry...

Berbaroon, did you get any update from MOI about your family visa. Me and one my colleague have submitted the application on the same day - 12th Dec and it shows the same "Appliction Under Process" status for both of us.

Berbaroon

Well today it is showing "Application is postponed". I dont know what that means! Will go to the immigration department tomorrow...

For me it showed "Application Postponed" on the 2nd day of my application. I reported this to my company PRO and he had to visit immigration to get it fixed. Don't know what exactly it means. I hope it get fixed for you as well.

My other office colleague who applied on 21-Dec-11 got the visa today. My application was on 12-Dec-11 and it still shows under process. Seriously weird.

guys, if everyone keeps visiting govt this will keep them busy and will further slow down processing your paperwork :o)

Berbaroon

Yeah mine is still showing 'under process'. What nationality is your friend? I might go to the immigration again tomorrow :(
