Applied on 7 Dec 15 and as on 4 Jan 16 I am STILL WAITING. In the late 80's I applied with a hard copy photo and paper application and it did not take this long to approve. How can we be slower to approve an application in the age of instant electronic vetting than 30 years ago ? A RIGHT delayed is a RIGHT denied IMO. Oh well Happy New Year to all my hi Point amigos.
