Congratulations!

Would you mind describing the interview process? I actually just looked up Casa here on the consulate reviews: sounds like there have been FOUR K1 approvals from Casa in the last few weeks! Amazing.

:) Good luck with the transition and congrats again!!

I will post a review of the interview process soon. I have heard that Casablanca is one of the harder places to get K1 approval, so I am very grateful.....

Thank you for all the well wishes
