MY VISA GOT APPROVED!

At 8AM today I got to the American Embassy in Oslo. I was the first in line. A few more people arrived as we waited outside the gate for the approval list for today's interviews.

I was the first one inside. The security went fast, I just put my cell phone and a few items in a box there, and were told to wait inside.

There I spoke to a man, paid the cash fee, spoke to a lady who took my papers, and then I was asked to wait. At this point it was about 8.30AM.

At about 9.00PM I was called forward to my interview. A very nice young man conducted the interview. It was a little hard to hear through the glass, but I understood him well.

He asked questions like how did we meet, how we had traveled to one another, about why I wanted to marry just him, about him and his family, about his job, how we communicated etc. He also made a joke about how we met on XBL, since there are a lot of jerks on XBL.

The interview took about 10 minutes. He then told my all the paperwork seemed to be in order, and gave a reciept to pick up my passport in a few days. I asked him "so, does that mean my visa is approved?" to which he reponded that, as long as there was nothing horribly wrong with my fingerprints, or all their computers melted, it should be. I'm sure at this point I could not stop smiling. I was asked to pick it up either at the end of this week or beginning of next.

I asked if I would have it for sure by the end of next week, which he assured me as long as everything was ok with the fingerprints (which I know it will be), so I am about to book my tickets to travel, to start my life with my amazing fiance. :D

All in all a great interview experience, everyone was very helpful and nice. I feel so good now, so happy, can't stop smiling. Aaaah :D
