~posted in Canada Section too~

Just wanted to say, I know I ask a boatload of questions and all but today, I really got a HUGE justification. After waiting, not too, too long, actually, at CSIS for 3 months, the NVC stuff is flying at us so fast and furious that I I can hardly breath. It made me feel a little wobbly about OMG, what's next, you know?

Anyway, I just wanted to say, you guys have been great. And I appreciate the patience given to me for asking the same questions more than once, in the wrong area or whatever. But holy moly, I feel like it's coming fast and without you all here for quick reference and such, I have to say, we'd be a little lost.

Oh and an FYI for anyone near abouts where I am in the process, when we got our Choice of agent form via email, it totally INVITED us to send it via email and to pay our AOS fee via the online service. It also requested that when we did so, NOT to send a hard copy as well as this could be a cause of delays. You just have to have constant access to a computer and the ability to create and use PDFs, which most of us do at this point.

just thought I'd pass that on to you.

Thanks a bunch, it's not over yet and I feel a little woozy with the speed if it but I wanted to say this board has replaced a lawyer and useless phone calls and pretty much everyone I've "met" here has been been nice and helpful -- if i can ever help anyone else with anything, if I know it, I'm happy to.

You all make a long, hard journey a little sweeter and easier.

Thanks all and sdhiman this site is really invaluable for the way people will and do come to your aid when you post things in a panic.

Good luck to everyone still waiting for NOA2 and just in case you didn't hear me the first time, it goes really, really, really fast so... be prepared with all your documents and stuff. It's surprising, really.

That being said, we're still not done yet and who know what could happen to hold us up or what sort of RFEs are waiting -- working hard to eliminate that possibility but hey... que sera, sera...

All the best to everyone...

:)

Ah yeah, that makes tons of sense to me now. You need to have that accepted BEFORE you can pay the IV Bill and thus, send in the DS 230. Gotcha. I'm still waiting for the Choice of Agent to be accepted but our AOS fee was accepted today which is cool.

Oh and an FYI about the IIN, Invoice Identification Number... it is in the emailed AOS bill that athey sent you --- the operator cannot/does not have that info. Just be sure to scroll down all the pages and you'll find it. Not like I did that or anything...

:whistle:

;)

best...
