No Fly-Fly For Now

Hmmm,I'm a little worried, I didn't thought it would be this troublesome.I mean they told me it won't be a problem or it will be easy to fix or it wont take a month at all...I'm talking about my working visa. My visa was issued April 29, 2009 and when my agency showed it to me I instantly noticed the wrong spelling of my surname, they told me the HR was already informed about it:

Callister --- Callisetr
This is just an example

That's what kind of error I'm talking about.(wrong spelling of my surname on my visa) My dad told me that its a common mistake from middle east employers.Its about three weeks now, so I'm afraid I wont be able to fly to Qatar before May ends. Sad. To think I'm all set, I already have a pink scarf and maleta na may gulong gulong bah LOL!!! When I call my agency they all say is wait, it will come. I mean WTF? I waited for that visa for three months and now that it finally came, they spelled my surname the wrong way! Waaa!I'm having a bad luck! I don't know how long will it take to correct it.

I did some questioning and one said it will be in a month, one said it will take at least 3 months!(I don't want to listen to him LOL), another one told me that a waiver will be enough since its just an entry visa and once I'm there they will issue a working permit and that's all that important together with my passport.

Hayyy, right now I'm still waiting for a call from my agency.I emailed earlier the HR of my employer at Qatar and did an inquiry about the status of my working visa,I hope they wont find my email a little bothering haha. FYI: I didn't pay a single cent on all of this, no placement fee, all expense paid including the POEA stuffs, just the medical exam.

If you experience the same thing,or any wrong spelling on your visa or info, please give me some advice and some stuff to keep me at peace LOL!

P.S
Special shout out to my YM friends and avid readers of my blog from that side of the planet: A.S of Dubai, A.G of Libya, B.S of Al Ahsa (cute mo LOL). You all know who your are hehe. I'm glad my blog reached you guys there!
