I think our dates are pretty similar; VSC mailed my NOA1 on 2/6 and I received it around 2/10. I am still waiting my NOA2. You on the same boat?

Yep, that's me.

Still waiting on the NOA2.

Freaking USCIS.

Good luck to your immigration process, Amastar ! Yes, she is pretty too :star:

No, Japan is part of the VWP so a visitor visa is not needed.

HOWEVER, she could still get turned away at the POE tomorrow if they thought she was trying to immigrate early. I'm really worried because her belly is getting bigger and I dont know how they will look at that.

Thank you for the compliment. I think so too. :)

hey hey, just out of curiosity, how do you communicate with your wife? in English or Japanese? My wife doesn't speak much of English and my Japanese is below-average. I mean I can get my points across but we seldom can have a fluent conversation...she probably married me because of my hotness..j/k :)

We use both. Her english isnt really good and my Japanese is just good enough to get by. So there are still alot of times where I have to repeat things or say something in a different way. Sometimes I sound like Yoda talking.

I need to keep learning more Japanese though! I can communicate great with my wife but with her friend or family I struuuuuuggggglllleeee.

That's awesome. I am probably at exactly the same situation as you are. Sometimes I feel a lack of sentence structure and often just use words or phrases. I am a member of the Yoda club too...I wonder if VSC would be susceptible to Jedi mind trick..
