Received Visa!

Timeline

Olga went to the interview on the 31st of January. She was only asked 3 questions; 1. Did you use a marriage broker? 2. What does your fiance do for a living? 3. Why do you love your fiance? As long as paperwork is done correctly and all of the requirements are met, I think the interview is smooth sailing. Olga received her visa in the mail 6 days later. Now, my Babyduck will be on her way here on the 13th. After 9 loooong months, I am about to go crazy with anticipation. :dance:

For anyone stressing about the interview, try not to stress. It is the last of the formalities before the visa is issued. Good luck to everyone! :thumbs:

Bad news on that front I'm afraid. Have you ever seen Russians actually organize a row of anything? Can't be done. Genetically impossible. Best she can hope for is to have her ducks standing in a sort of milling cluster, each one elbowing the other ducks aside to try to get to the front. :) :)

(yes I am still scarred from trying to get tickets re-issued at Sheremetyevo. Twice. *twitch*)
