Hey Paschal, did your wife apply from Lagos or Abuja? and when did she apply. I thought they have started speeding things up now.

try and contact your MP, i did same and the MP called them few times and the hurried them up, although they refused the visa due to not submitting my bank statement. by my wife has since reapplied over a month ago, still waiting. the first application was on the 6th of July. she applied in Abuja. their processing time has been reduced for applications processed in November.

I do not know if Dokie, another guy on this forum whose wife applied also from Nigeria has received a decision yet.

My MP said I should contact him after 6 months if the Home Office do not make a decision.

So am really worried and thinking about asking to get back my wife’s passport in other to apply for her to come to Italy.

Dont quit now, wait till January 28, that would make it 6 months. Again you are not living in Italy now, how sure are you that the Italian Visa will be quicker, I heard that schengen visas take long now in Naija. I thought about doing same when my wife's first refusal came, but later decided to reply and see.

Hello,
I'm not sure anyone has news fro naija apart from the one that was refused earlier.
It's a bit frustrating but what can we do!
They've held my passport since July21, I've called 3 times and it's the same old story.
I wish I could sleep and wake up when this nightmare is over. This is my worst Christmas ever. I spent most of the day consoling a crying wifey. Guyz u don't want to know. However. I won't stop believing. Sometimes I wonder what they checking? Probably my grandfathers grave and my ancestors grave. I've read on this. Forum someone got it it 13 working days last month and it's taken 113 days for me and much more for some others.
Waiting close to 6 months for. 6 months visa haba? ( pardon my naija mannerisms) how long will it take to get the residence card of 4.5years? Another 4.5 years waiting time?
I will stop ranting now and see how long it's going to take?
Once again happy new year to everyone waiting and NEVER STOP BELIEVING
