Simon called me this afternoon saying he got his passport back from the Embassy and he thought the residence permit was in it but he didn’t really know since it was all in Swedish. He sent me a MMS of the passport and there it was – the residence permit and work permit granted for two years! Totally unexpected this week and the best news we could ever get, we are so happy!!A big plus for our case officer who processed our application right after I spoke to her two days ago. The letter I had waiting for me in the mail when I got home from the Migration Board saying that the permit was granted because they thought our relationship was sincere and real, was dated 2010-06-22. The process took almost 4 months on the day since it all started and the whole application progress can be found HERE.
Unfortunately I had to go into a meeting and Simon go to bed so we couldn’t talk for long about it but we’ll talk later tonight. Finally we can start planning things and we have one less thing to worry about.
My smile goes from ear to ear!move to Sweden, residence permit
