Filed: K-1 Visa Country: Ghana

It went a lil something like this: My fiance arrived at the embassy in Accra at 5:45am. I talk to him up until 1 hour before 7:30am when they let everyone in. My fiance said he was the 2nd to be attended to. They call him to a window where they took all the documents and his payment. Some of the papers they return to him. Probably my paystubs. He said they did not ask many questions. They asked him to write your fiance name on a sheet paper. then they asked, How did we met? She came to Ghana on vacation. Of all places, why did she choose Ghana for vacation? She came with a friend. How many times has she been to Ghana? 3 times. Where does she live? He gave city and state. Then he gave him a sheet up paper to pick up visa on Feb 3, 2011! :dance::dance::dance: I really cannot complain. My K1 journey has been smooth sailing.Petition got approved in less than 1 month and sent to Ghana within 2 months. The longest wait was 5 months waiting for the interview day. In total, Part 1 of this journey was 7 months. Now its time to prepare for his arrival, marriage and then the AOS! Good Luck Everyone! :thumbs:
