3 - 5 days for the entry permit to be issued, and then you have to do the status change, which is usually the same day or the day after depending on when you get to the typing center...

remember that until the status change is done, you are still considered to be on tourist visa, and your days are still being counted... if the status change happens after your tourist visa time has run out, then before it is approved, you have to pay overstay fines...

Thank you! I am on tourist visa. We have delay with husbands ID. Residence visa was issued but ID is not issued yet for him. In the very beginning typing center ensured us that both visa and ID will be issued in the same period.

That's why I probable will leave the country and will come in again under new tourist visa.

Medical should be processed after status changed approved ?

If you are planning to travel out of the country, then no need to come back on another tourist visa.. it will require you to do a status change which is another big expense.. you should rather get your husband to get you an entry permit which is valid for 60 days.. you can use this to enter the country and then get residency processed..
