Haven't seen my husband in a year

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So we got married a year ago and I left for my home country to do the process from here, we thought the process will be shorter but it took almost 10 months just to get the NOA2 and now we are waiting for the 2018 tax returns so we can send them because my husband wasn't working in previous years.

So we haven't seen each other in a year and by the time I'll have to go to the interview it will be closer to a year and a half.

will this be a problem? we really don't want to spend money on traveling right now, we are trying to save as much as we can.

Filed: AOS (pnd) Country: Australia

What embassy is your visa being processed at? Honestly the answer to your question will vary a bit based on the location, because some embassies are tougher than others. It helps to fill this information in on your profile so that members here can give you the most accurate information. Spousal visas typically take at least a year from filing to having the visa in hand.


How much time have you spent together prior to this current separation?

should not be insurmountable, just take the time to reintroduce yourselves to each other, the absence can make things a little awkward after a long time apart. Good luck and best of luck to you !

Sorry misread.


Not a huge deal. You're from a low fraud country.
