Hello, I have been waiting for my work visa 2 months now and the moi government site shows that it's still being processed. How much longer should I wait before losing hope? Is there a chance that it will be rejected?

Hi thenewlife,

Has your work permit been sponsored by your employer?

Keep in mind that with Ramadan starting now, most goverment offices will be operating on shorter working hours, which may cause added delays.
