31 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My spouse is comming home in 2 weeks :o - got school and a huge ### marriage/reception occasion comming up (dad's calling all middle east to come :lol:) My whole family and friends are going crazy it's the best feeling in the world so I also pass down the quote - the wait is worth it in the end.

Thanks to everyone who helped me on those tough visa questions only a fellow petitioner could relate to/understand. Oh yeah and kiss my A$$ to the rude people :hehe:

Well I wanted to give heads up to all the other petitioners for Algeria my timeline and man was it long! I hope everyone else going through this consulate a speedy process and everyone else going through AP checks and so forth.

If I can be of any help to anyone on this visa process you can def contact me via PM to see what I went through and what I did throughout the process. It wasn't hard at all just alot of waiting and patience. I recommend working extra (school helps alot) to get your mind off it I got more money and my mind was at peace most of the time - all Benefit$ God bless and Best of luck everyone :thumbs:

Congratulations, Sarahaziz !! God Bless you, too!

Don't just open your mouth and prove yourself a fool....put it in writing.

It gets harder the more you know. Because the more you find out, the uglier everything seems.
