Unfortunately I booked the flight on Jan 4th, I was thinking that it will take 14 business days MAXIMUM and Feb 7th is a safe date to secure a flight.
Obviously I was mistaken 🙂
Anyways, thanks for sharing the information my friend.
Please be informed that the approval process takes 7 working days. However, the approval is solely at the discretion of the Immigration Department. Kindly note that applicants are not advised to purchase flight tickets prior to the issuance of the VAL.
