I was abit vague on the timeline above, here's more info.

- Biometrics was done at Islamabad
- Notification of passport being ready to collect was by email and no phone call or sms received

- Passport collected - 05/05/2021
Visa granted alham'dulillah, 90 days given to arrive here. Good luck to all those applying, may Allah make it easy for you and grant you success.

All other posts should be made in a separate topic, not here please.

Please don't send me PMs asking for immigration advice on posts that are on the open forum. If I haven't responded there, it's because I don't have the answer. I'm a moderator, not a legal professional.
