Hello folks,

Just want to thank all of you who assisted us through this very long journey. Exactly 3 years and 3 months to the day since we began. My Visa arrived today via Express Post, and I am thankful to the Senator Liaison and Consulate Supervisor for expediting our case. Our patience ran out months ago so we began firing in every direction to facilitate a reasonable outcome.

If you hesitate, YOU WAIT.

Dave and Wife

Thanks everyone, it sure did feel good to cross into the US Friday until I approached the booth for inspection. No welcome to the US. The guy just ripped on me and then my wife. Went inside and met with the supervisor. He welcomed me to the US, shook my hand as he processed the paperwork in a short period of time.
