Air 21 delivered my visa more than an hour ago :) I want to thank everyone for the help and words of encouragement.

We will be together soon, after a very long journey. So happy :dance:

USEM told me to wait for 7-10 days for my visa to be delivered, but got it just 5 days after giving them the document they asked.

God is really good :)

Milagros received hers too... She's kind of upset that she can't open the package.. :rofl:

I don't know this or not, but it looks like her passport is inside plastic along with a brown envelope. You have to leave that all alone right? I told her just to leave it be.. She wants to see her passport.. Can she remove the plastic or does that also open the envelope? :thumbs:

Thanks guys! Yup, I ripped the plastic cuz I was too anxious to see the visa stamped on my passport :blush:

Just as long as she doesn't open the yellow envelope, it's fine.

Congratulations!! :dance: She can open the plastic and take her passport. Her passport needs to be stamped by CFO before she leaves the country. Just tell her not to open the yellow/brown envelope and she will be fine.
