Dependent Visa Complementary Examination

Hello everyone,

I applied for a dependent visa to join my husband in the month of February 2017. My husband is working in Belgium from May 2016 and we got married in December 2016. Recently, when I enquired the consulate, I got the following response:

You enquire about the status of a visa application. We regret, but we can’t speed up the procedure.
The concerned service took a decision to defer due to complementary examination.

Can anyone tell me what does this mean? How long can I expect this complementary examination to complete? and what it is?


When they give this style of response, it means two things:
- Either you bother them to ask constantly about the progress of your visa file.
- Either you have a missing and / or incorrect document. They will then contact you to ask for more information.
