Btw, only EEA application approval letter arrived with all the docs. They have sent non EEA approval yesterday with 2nd class mail, and should arrive by Friday. Did anyone have similar experience? I find it idiotic... :shock:

Something is wrong with your basic maths. If you sent it in Nov 2012 and received it in October 2013, that takes only 11 months :shock: Unless there's a typo?
