I don't claim to be more knowledgeable, but I have friends you have an F-Visa. They are diplomats and tell me that you don't need any work permit on an F-visa. I also don''t think that they have to pay income taxes.

I personally don't think someone not paying taxes would qualify for PR and citizenship application (excluding special categories) - perhaps this is a question gurus in this forum can answer.

SB passed my documents on to MOI a few months ago. While I am aware it will take 6-18 months (at least according to postings on this forum) before they contact me for the interview [...]

Jay yen yen my friend. Bear in mind that things are processed by batch, so it's not only a matter of processing your application but how many batches are queuing before you. For instance there has been no MOI interview since February 2020 (while these were run on a monthly basis for about 40-50 people) and this mean that if they don't double the size of applicants or increase the pace when they resume the interviews it will add 4 or more months to the 12-month average waiting time.

 

We know files are not necessarily processed as FIFO and the time can vary from one to another, but what you should try to do is to know when interviews resume (thanks david143 for regularly telling us!) at which pace and how many people seem to be interviewed each time. Because when SB has sent your file to MOI it means there were probably 12 months*50 so total 600 people queuing ahead of you.

Does anybody have a direct phone number I can call? Is there a specific ref number I should mention, or just my name and the month SB sent them my docs? (I believe they send only one batch per month.)

 

Thanks.

A good idea to check if they have it or not. I never received a letter to say so, my officer just told mentioned it to me when he called to ask me to help another applicant. I wouldn't have known if he hadn't called. 

FYI, it was sent in March 2018 and my MOI interview was in Sep 2019, so 18 months.

I just checked my records and see that it is approximately 14 months since my application was accepted by the MOI. I know this because I was shown a copy of the acceptance record by my SB officer. It seems that the norm for interview intervals is 12-18 months, with some outliers. Is this still the case? Also, is there any point in contacting the MOI office concerned just to inquire about status, or will this just annoy them? I guess the main thing I would want to know is that my application is indeed in the system and has not been misplaced/lost or whatever.

As in your case more than a year has passed already, I see no harm in giving them a call.

I had my wife call at least 3 times the 1st time they didn't pull my file. The next 2x they did and 3rd they gave  me a time frame

I think so for 12-18 months. I myself waited 17 months (MOI interview was July 2019), but recently there has been no MOI monthly meeting between March and June this year so this can add a delay of 4 month to the let's say average 15 months waiting time. All will depend it they increase the frequency or the number of people called each month, but yes definitely a call to MOI would at least clarify that your file is progressing normally in the queue an has no specific blocking point.

If you have the time I suggest going to see them in person. It's a trek, but if you aim to get to their offices around 1000-1030 the traffic shouldn't be too bad. Loads of parking if you drive yourself. They are quite friendly and I think more likely to really look things up if you are sitting in their office.

That's what I was thinking, thanks. Fortunately it is not that far from where I live. I was surprised to learn recently that it was in Lumlukka, thinking I would have to go into Bangkok.
