I have been a passive user in the forum since last few months..
First of all big thanks to everyone who have been sharing their experiences/tips here. It helped me a lot in planning my wife's dependent permit.
I applied my wife's dependent permit through my company a week back and I was expecting it to arrive in 6-8 weeks (based on feedback from people in this forum). But I was pleasantly shocked today when I received my wife's dependent approval from my HR. I still couldn't believe it and got it verified just in case.
Again a big thanks to all!!
