Don't freak out til you have to. I think in general, ladies get a little easier of a journey through this, add that to whatever background checking already took place when you moved there...you may not have anything to worry about and if you did have to wait out an extra name check or anything I wouldn't expect it to take long. No one can say, though so don't stress too much about it for now. Did you get a date yet?

The long periods of AR are for arab muslim men. Women who are arabs and/or muslim and men who are arab but not muslim have breezed through. I can imagine that a non arab non muslim woman will have an easy time as well.
