Status update for our k1 visa

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So we got approved. Yesterday, Nhi and I left Vietnam. Today we are sleeping in my bed (shes already sleeping, since shes been sick for the past couple days - visited mui ne, went swimming). :)

With regards to POE, we entered through Newark. It was extremely easy. At customs and immigration, I told them I was her fiance and that she didnt speak any English. They let me go with her to the visitors section, then when it was our turn, she had her finger prints taken. We gave them her passport and the brown package. We were then taken down stairs for processing. After bringing us down stairs, we joined others and waited for our name to be called. After about 15 minutes, they called us up to the counter, asked when the big day was (which I said i didnt know yet, but I plan to get the certificate first then plan the wedding after), and finally congratulated us.

After being given back the passport, we had to get our bags re-checked, which was just pulling our luggage about 30 feet, so nothing difficult there.

All in all, we're finally in the US together, and everything went pretty smoothly. A huge thanks to everyone here as I wouldnt have been able to do the paperwork and everything without you guys.
