Tut-tut, this modern instant-gratification generation - complaining about waiting 7 or 8 months! You guys are spoilt rotten! I am still receiving regular counseling for my Post-PR-Waiting-Induced-Stress after my 5 YEAR wait. And then after that I only barely survived the cleansing when CIC scrapped all the backlog-applications older than 4 years, phew!   8 months, ghu! Kla met die witbrood onder die arm, se^ ekke.

Bwahahahah, @Hennie vd Berg! Please can you refer me...where are you getting counselling. Methink I need some too.

Yes Pretoria, also send a case specific enquiry and pay them a visit on the first Tuesday of July. Hopefully all these efforts will push things along for you guys!

@Raquel Tell me, when you went there personally how exactly did you ask them about status? I mean were you very polite and asked the minimum or more aggressive and demanding answers?

Please share what worked for you as we were pretty polite last time. But in July we are thinking of being a bit more aggressive considering this wait is becoming unbearable now.

@NostalgiaNut we were pretty polite, I found it very difficult to be rude or aggressive since they held my fate in their hands!

Jeepers, 8th July!  you guys don't mess about. What is the rush,  is our homeland  on fire??! (sadly the answer is yes).  Very good luck on the packing and sorting, I am getting a nervous twitch just thinking about it.
