anyone? even indicative timelines for getting a sponsorship license offlate would do. I've read that it takes 4-10 weeks, but most people say it takes 6 months, is that true? any idea of what the average is like?

Many thanks!

Applied for sponsorship license

Hey,

My company has applied for sponsorship license to hire me and my colleague. How will it take from here on to getting a visa?

We are from Singapore.

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Regards,

I would like to think it is (and hence the suggestion) - but the Visa approval process is very parameter driven. Not all banks allow you do withdraw funds as and when required.An FD can be considered a financial instrument - hence rejected. If your sponsor is A rated and you are getting a restricted...

Maybe if the deposits mature before your visa application, you can show them you had th...
