Hi @Aneesh Good day and Trust you are well enough and carrying on your cooperation as always. This is helpful for any applicants. However as you know our applications submitted 30 Nov, 22 ,Registered at 17 Feb 23,From  submission to till today we have several send emails and contacted over phone mentioning our miserable scenario and requested them to process our files as early as possible . But they never replied other than a disgusting time frame for 9 to 15 months. Ridiculous.My kids are mentally broken up and my wife also depressed. It's a worst situation for us. We don't know how can we overcome the situation. Now please advice what can we do now or how to know the stage of our files are laying. All docs we submitted. Even blocked the amount for family expenses.


Expecting your kind advise.


Regards,

Khaled Rasel

@khaledrasel1980 hi how arw you doing ? Is your sponsor eu or non eu , ade stated earlier if he or she is eu maximum is 3 to 6months, if non eu it is 9 to 15months

Khaled, there is no other way than to wait. Put your mind at ease, if your documentation is perfect, visa will be approved, it is just a matter of time.

@Aneesh thanks for your prompt advice. As far as I think documentary not problem. Because after submission ,Delhi Ambassy required some docs and we provided them accordingly. Then they send the files to immigration lately.However as you say have to wait. Let's see what's done.

Hi @Tachelle McCarthy  thanks for sharing the info. the time you mentioned I already know that and trust me I analysed at least 200 files tracking results. I astonished to seeing their process time, I don't understanding their base of processing or files valuation method. As I saw in some cases application submitted after us but already approved their visa. Even seen some files approved within 15 to 16 days from the submission date. Do you think in modern age some thing verifying takes a long time to  9 to 15 months. However they are always right. We must wait.


Thanks & Regards,


Khaled Rasel 

@khaledrasel1980 15-16 days for approval is only from selected countries. Unfortunately waiting is all you can do! It won't take 9-15 months that is only extreme cases. Average waiting time is 3-4 months after your file was received in Brussels. Just take the time you have with your family and friends and enjoy every moment. All the best!

Hi All,

Finally i can see my visa status as deal today


Timeline:

Vfs appointment: Nov 11 2022

Additional doc requested : Dec first week

Email received doc sent to Belgium : Dec 12

Status reflected in dofi (In progress): Jan 10 2023

Status changed to Deal : 24 Mar 2023


Now the passport will be courier to our registered address or we need to go and pick up in vfs office, any thought please ?



Thanks,

@KusumaReddy it's amazing to hear . Many Congratulations. However if you didn't choosen any courier service of VFS , they will inform you collect the passport . Means you have to collect it from their office.


Thanks

@khaledrasel1980 Thank you

Hello,

Did anyone get your dependent visa applied in December 2022.

Thanks.

Any update on this one anyone?

Someone applied on Nov-Jan?


Also for the dependent person who the residence permit have accepted, did you guys receive the "temporary" National register number / INSZ number immediately when you guys received the visa (like the single permit process), or did you guys obtain it after registering in the Town Hall?

Hello,


I can see below update in dofi. I have not received any mail or post letter about the pending documents. Does anyone know how I will be intimated with the details of the pending documents.


Decision/Status File:    Granting of visa upon submission of additional documents.

Date decision / status file:    Mar 30 2023

extra info1:    The competent diplomatic/consular post will indicate which documents still need to be submitted.

extra info2:    In principle, the decision is sent on the day it is made. However, it can sometimes take several days before the diplomatic or consular post actually receives the decision.

@Prakash Somasundaram try contacting the consulate of Belgium from India (Mumbai or Delhi as per your file)

VFS/DOFI will contact you with the additional documents list.

We called Delhi office but they were angry for calling them for the updates. That's too bad. But after all the waiting and praying, I've received a mail from Infodesk about missing health insurance for my dependents. I'm surprised how can we get health insurance when they are not here yet. I've responded to them as the health insurance will be taken once they reach Belgium and after receive the RP. I'm yet to get response from them. My family is already happy that at least something is happening.

@Prakash Somasundaram actually this is already discussed in this forum quite often.. regarding the health insurance for partner who are still abroad.. its actually also written in ibz website.. you have to ask your health insurance provider to fill in some "standard form", and basically you ask them to make statement that your partner will be covered once they arrive here in Belgium.. normally, they (your health insurance provider, who will also insure your partner health) will ask some marriage certificate first before they are willing to give you the filled-in form


you can have a look into more detail here.. the example of the form also you can find it here in this link.. basically, you ask your health insurance provider to fil in this form (and stamp it)

or, other alternative thats written there

@Anne tsob how did it go

Anyone get their family reunification visa approved recently? last update from this thread is from someone who appiled on the mid Dcemeber 2022 (approved 3 weeks ago). My dependent applied on 10 Jan 2023. Trying to estimate which file they process these days

@Prakash Somasundaram Did you remember which date exactly in December your dependent applied from her/his home country? and which date the you get the information  from embassy of her/his home country (to submit your missing document/pick up passport)?


I would like to estimate how many days after their decision made ( in your case was, how many days after 30 March,) your embassy received the information from Brussel.

Hi Everyone,


Does anyone here applied in Dec 2022 period and still waiting decision?

Good morning, please has anyone on here experienced a visa D application rejection either to self or someone before and  what are the reasons stated??? Do they mail someone if their is a visa rejection.


once they take a decision and post it in the decision column of the tracking site, do they remove it and change it to “Behandeling” or in treatment again ??

@qazisajidhussain i think 4 to 6 months time

@A.supertramp hi any status on your application , i applied in march also

@Spencer Gee Gold any update on your visa status yet?

Hey, I also applied for Family Reunification from Pakistan in May 2023. My husband is a Belgian.

I have tried to track the application a couple of times but it yields no result on both the VFS and Ibz website.

Can anyone share how long their family reunion visa took? Or how long it generally takes?

@hibbasaleem18 Good day. What I've seen most applications only start tracking between 6-8 weeks. And for a decision 3-4 months. Good luck, it's a slow process.
