  1. I’m surprised they wanted personal emails, Skype conversations, photos and so on just to become a permanent resident!
    I went through similar things a couple years ago, but it was to become a permanent resident in the States. They didn’t ask for anything personal tho.
    Anyhoo, I feel for your pain! Government paperwork and waiting is never fun – will be praying for a speedy process! 🙂
