K-1 Visa approved today!!!!!!! :thumbs::dance::dance:

Addis and I were approved at the Ethiopia embassy today. We are so excited at the speed at which things have gone for me and my sweet heart. Guy! I am praying for each one of you who are still waiting and it is my prayer that you all get approvers and time with your loved ones.

The interview was very easy in our case and I was left wondering WOW!!. The interviewer did not even ask for my affidavit of support and/or evidence of ongoing relationship. I spent many hours gathering the information and they did not even look at it…..Nice!!

My fiancée was call to the interview window after two hours wait in the visa waiting room. I walk with my fiancée to the window but the interview asks me to go sit down. Here is how the interview went:

Interviewer: Do you speak English?

Fiancée: Yes, I speak but not very well

Interviewer: What does your fiancé do for a living?

Fiancée: He is an Auditor

Interviewer: Where was your fiancé originally born?

Fiancée: Ghana

Interviewer: Did your fiancé tell you about Ghana?

Fiancée: No

Interviewer: Has your fiancé been marriage before?

Fiancée: Yes, now he is divorce

Interviewer: Do you know if your fiancé has had an ex- fiancé

Fiancée: Yes, I know about his ex-fiancée

Interviewer: Why did their relationship not work out?

Fiancée: It did not work out because her brother was involved in a car accident in addition to other issues…….

Thanks everyone for your encouragement and help. Truly appreciated.
