We have hundred such kind of different cases we have over cases since 2010
and 2011 unable to deal with immigration issues locally or overseas things
Improving the previous government made a lot of changes until sponsor group
unable to do nothing wait and see may be some one will investigate the case
and Issued their visa . Safety and security the main Issues to Issue visa .
Terrorists infiltrated refugee camps, hard to know the differences. Be
patient and follow up. Immigration issues more complicated than what you
