The Long Term Social Visit Pass has been approved!
Visa or no visa, it remained a big surprise for a few months. Until last Wednesday Jeroen finally received the redeeming email. The application for my visa has been approved! ‘Glad to inform you that the Long Term Social Visit Pass for Lisa has been approved!’ That means I’m almost legally in this country.
I think we’ve been applying for our visas for quite a few weeks now. First for Jeroen, because without a visa he wasn’t allowed to work here. Now such an application normally takes one to two months. We had a ‘bit’ of bad luck and because of moves at immigration Jeroen got his visa six months later. That uncertainty is not very pleasant, but once you have that visa you have forgotten about it for a long time.
