K1 VISA Approved!

26 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I got my K1 VISA interview yesterday and YES!!!! :D my interview went well, the consular is very friendly, he spend about 10 to 15 minutes over the counter and ask me some simple questions:

- How do we meet?

- When do we meet?

- What is my current profession? Do I intend to work after entering to US in the same industries?

- I got about 18 photos, the consular going through them one by one and ask a couple of question on where is the place in the photo.

- Did I ever over stay my visitor VISA while I travel to US? (I have 9 entries to US, the consular mention if I did over stay, then will be problem for my K1 application)

- The consular then told me everything seem to be in order, my VISA will be approve, he will need to cancel my current B1/B2 Visa and ask me leave my passport for process and come again to collect on next Friday (19 May 06)

I'm so HAPPY... the moment I get out from the embassy, I make a call to my fiancée and told him about the status (It is 2:45am on the morning in U.S.)

We both feel so glad and thankful... Yeah! We are One step forward.... :dance::dance::dance:

Thank you for everyone in VJ for the sharing and support!

Wish all of you well....

:dance: Congrats :dance:

Liefde is een bloem zo teer dat hij knakt bij de minste aanraking en zo sterk dat niets zijn groei in de weg staat




Take a large, almost round, rotating sphere about 8000 miles in diameter, surround it with a murky, viscous atmosphere of gases mixed with water vapor, tilt its axis so it wobbles back and forth with respect to a source of heat and light, freeze it at both ends and roast it in the middle, cover most of its surface with liquid that constantly feeds vapor into the atmosphere as the sphere tosses billions of gallons up and down to the rhythmic pulling of a captive satellite and the sun. Then try to predict the conditions of that atmosphere over a small area within a 5 mile radius for a period of one to five days in advance!
