No Tina they r not!!
I know the whole process is very nerve-racking; however, there r other embassies worse than ours like Pakistan and U.A.E.........
Don't u worry, all this unrest in Syria will force Damascus either to speed up the process or to transfer the files. And both scenarios r good!
yeeeeeeeees UAE is reaaaaaaally slow; u can have 2 kids until they r done, if anyone insists even 3
LOL and then u have to update lots of forms
but even from there i heard positive stories
when u think u have to wait 2 years and u finish in 1 year, u r sooo happy
hey everyone, good morning / good night
first don't worry, transferring the file does not mean they will start the process from 0, they will just continue the work they r doing now; i don't know but my common sense tells me that it might even b the same officer working on it but from another location; i mean, ok the embassy closes, so what? will the officers just have a long term vacation, or get fired? i don't think so (like usual, i hope that sohrab could clear this
) also i really really don't think it's a good idea to just call them 100 of us, obviously they r very busy with very limited resources....so just be patient, it's clear that they will call u, as they did already with some members
good luck and stay caaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaalm!!!!
