Thank you so much for the replies!

Does it matter if the job offer is part time and that it is low pay? Also does the offer need to state these things?

Thank you!

Hi,

My application for Visa 11(6) was received at DHA on May 28th but I haven't heard anything yet, should I be worried?

I called the VFS office and they said that my application is still in the process at the DHA

My visa is due to expire in a few weeks, but the lady on the phone told me that I can still stay in the country past my expiry date whilst I'm still waiting for the decision for the application. Is she correct?

Thanks!

Hi All.

I submitted a PR application for my wife in January 2018 but still no response received. I followed up and was told it's at 2nd quality assurance stage but I just realized that her relatives permit has about 40 days to expire. I have made the application on VFS for extension and noted it says extension should have been submitted not less than 60 days. My question is how strict are they with this requirement and will they receive it if I submit to VFS? Thanks in advance

My agent told me so, too.

But I have never tried it myself or anyone else that I know tried it.

I heard on the web someone did it but was put into the undesirable persons' name list when she tried to leave the country at border by an officer working at the airport.

She appealed the decision while she was staying in Europe and successfully won the case in the end. However, thinking about all the panic and anxiety, maybe you should do anything possible to avoid it in the first place.

Anyway, you might still get the extension before the expiry. Finger crossed

She tried to leave the country, that's what got her banned. As long you stay in the country until you get the VFS out come, you are safe. When the VFS outcome is negative, you are given 10 days to leave the country, ban free.
