Processing time for LTSVP

Postby carlsum1986 » Sun, 06 Jun 2010 10:12 pm

Hi,
My partner got an epec and applied for the long term social visit pass on the ICA website about two weeks ago.
I was wondering how long does it take before we get a reply on the result of this application?
What is the next step involved after the application has been approved?
Can she get an extension on her short term visa since she already used about 45 days through visa runs?
How much does the extension cost if she can get one?
If she cant get one how long does she need to leave the country minimum to get another 60-90 days allocation?

Thanks in advance to all the forum replies.

If she is your spouse it will take around 4 to 5 weeks. Partner may not get it unless all the documentation is sent in to prove you have lived together for a substantial amount of time! That you cannot do online, so I would send the evidence you have. They will get called in for document check and finger print taking if eligible Spouse normally gets extension without problem, unless they are found unsuitable

Ksl, I believe his partner can applied for a LTSVP via the EPEC under her own merits, therefore doesn't need to prove they've been living together?

I think people asking about visas should be honest here what their real intentions are.

Too much smoke and mirrors. Too many 'border runs' etc...

Too many convoluted faux convolutions, expecting bullet-proof legal advice in return
