Hi Renatchi, congratulations on your approval.

I'd say that getting approval sooner than you expected really is a luxury, specially taking into account so many on this forum are waiting for such a long time and still have to receive their approval.

Your visa process still isn't completed, plus you have several months time to use your visa for US entry after it is granted. So I do not really see the problem.

Take care.

I am soooo nervous! I don't know what to do next!

Sal and Jay, foreverido, jeca, Catt and o0pink0o and wifetobe, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE SUPPORT! I am starting to think it was a stroke of a LOT of luck! :P Maybe I am Irish! lol

I will read the guides and get an idea of what to do! But it says only what my hubby has to do. I don't know what I should do now, I mean, me here in Brazil.

I have been told that I need to take vaccines, do some exams, take a new passport, etc.... Ai ai ai!

I wasn't expecting this AT ALL! It's so wonderful and nerv wrecking all at once! We didn't do any expedite or anything! Just the regular process!

:blink:

Thank you guys!

Elbereth, I know it's not fair. And believe me, I was just as shocked as you. One great greeeat friend of mine is waiting for 6 months now. I don't know what they did to get my process going so fast.

It's not fair at all, but you can't blame me. I somehow was lucky. I never did anything to be ahead of anybody - no expedites, no cheating, no nothing.

I guess we'll see each other at the interview. When is it yours (or spouse's)?

I agree.

It's great you got approved, Renatchi, and I am happy for you.

And you of course you do not decide USCIS's timeframe and when they process which cases, that's all them.

But when I saw this extremely fast approval, my first reaction was also what the hell.

So many have been waiting so long, you'd think they'd get approved first.
