Vegas POE: K-1 Visa

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed: AOS (pnd) Country: Philippines
Timeline

The CBP officer silently stamped our documents, smiled, and then said "Have a nice day!"

Stunned, we then walked out at which point the next CBP officer in security waved us past the 1+ hour line of folks waiting to pass through the x-ray machines, allowing us to catch an earlier flight home.

Finished before it even started. Not sure if having nothing whatsoever said to you is commonplace, but we're still laughing at our overly-paranoid approach to this entire visa process. The only question we've had to answer was a casual inquiry by the CO in Manila asking where we planned on living.

So much for all of the rehearsals...

Maybe we just caught CBP after a big meal when they were sleepy and ambivalent --

I'll tell you what, I haven't been in the States for 1.5 years -- and it's really good to be back.

Good luck to everyone that is still playing the waiting game. Our thoughts are with you.
