Ok I have a problem... This is my second time applying for my fiance since they didnt approve the first one. I was planning to go for the interview.. but my congressman has confirmed that they will not allow me in, however i can go and wait in the waiting area...

The congressman was very instrumental in sending a letter of support and asking the Embassy to work with us and actually said some positive things about me and my family( we worked with him on some community projects)..

So since the letter everything sped up... maybe its just a coincedence...

So should i go for a 2 day trip(1300 bucks) and see what happens?

YES! GO! I didnt go and now I wish with every inch of my being that I had been there. If you CAN and you can AFFORD it, by ALL MEANS, GO! It would have made a difference in my case for SURE and because I wasn't there, we are in the situation we are in now. It REALLY helps for them to see you two together as a couple. So, if you have the means, GO.
