Visa Office......
The theory is that you get a pre-arrival services letter when your eligibility phase has been passed. Assuming this is the toughest obstacle in the application process with so many scenarios that you can be refused at the whim of the officer reviewing your file, are the criminality and security stages routine if you have no issues on that side?
I'm curious as to when/if an interview is requested if needed. My wife and I have a 24 year age difference (she's younger)which might raise flags for an interview.
