Visas: Modern Form of Institutional Humilliation

I have been going in circles for a month and a half now, just because I feel nostalgic to the city of my dreams,   where I am planning to spend 15 days!!

For 15 days of relaxation a human being has to go through a month or so of stress. Well maybe stress is never my case, but it is a prolonged procedure of waiting and hoping. It's just like making a wish on a falling star!

I was told that today was the day in which I'll be informed if I was granted the visa (look at the verb!! Grant! It's humiliating on its very own! As If I am being granted a Noble prize) I checked the online page and this is what I got. I squeezed my guts and made a call and an Indian guy who kept saying "Mam" throughout the call told me that I might still have to wait for an extra week or two!

If it were not for Spain I would have dropped it, but for Spain I am capable of almost anything.

Our only experience is with
1-Saudi Arabia (what a joy to get granted)

2- UK

I agree it is absurd (the procedures), almost humiliating (& nerve-breaking at times)
But why do they go into such prolonged circles? Not trying to "grant" excuses yet still it is -at least partially- from our own doings.

I wish u a (granted) status and a happy trip en sha2 Allah
