    Agreed. There is a good chance (and increasing every day) that documents are not going to be requested anyway.

    Book your medical asap if you haven't already. I am already hearing the Aus physicians are heavily booked, which will cause some delay.

    You list your income, plus that of your spouse and so on. It is not saying you will give your total income to the beneficiary, it is trying to establish your total income that you have in order to support yourself and the beneficiary (including dependents).

    More molehills and mountains. You keep taking a word here and a word there to make some sort of point. It's exhausting and I don't have the time nor energy to play whack-a-mole with you. Simple DUI is not a CIMT. That is tested law and is also made clear in the FAM. Aggravating factors do...

    That's about right, huh.

    Because lying during a DUI is not an aggravating factor. Yes it can destroy your credibility, but in itself it does not increase the seriousness of the offense. Aggravating factors are additional crimes committed while DUI (such as causing death, driving without a license and so on). Lying to...

    "In my opinion a simple DUI is not a CIMT. However, if for example the court record shows you were asked by police if you had been drinking and you said no, then a BAC test proved you had been drinking, that could be interpreted as deliberate dishonesty, therefore evil intent and therefore a...

    A DUI "can" become a CIMT, normally if there is some additional aggravating factor (causing death while DUI for example). However, for a "regular" DUI, and especially one from many years ago, the CO will often choose to disregard the DUI.

    The 2000 allocated is selectees, not issuances. They expect many of the 2000 to not proceed, be refused and so on. The derivatives are counted toward the quota. I explained my rationale for why we don't take the number issued from the number scheduled.

    One thing I want to clarify about the risk. The transfer process (being between two embassies, and NOT involving KCC) includes transfer of the visa numbers allocated to the case (at least within the allocation month). Now that could get screwed up because of quotas, but I am hoping there is a...

    The quota allocation isn't a mystery. I have a spreadsheet for it, and made a video about it just a few weeks ago. It has nothing to do with taking a list of numbers and finding the average, because that would be daft. I also described above what the quota actually is, and how the quota can be...

    I don't think we will see a refusal rate of 39% by the end. Even if we change that to meaning the non issuance rate (which takes in no shows, as well as refusals and AP, I think that 39% would still be on the high side. However, only time will tell.
