Beginning of the End

Well tonight is the beginning of the end of my visa journey. It has been a long 10 months since the beginning. First applied early Sept 2010, seemed like it would never end. Now tonight after work I head to the airport and fly to Montreal. Tomorrow I pick up my results from the medical (hope they are approved)!!! Bright and early Weds morning I will be at the embassy for the interview. I just hope I have everything I need. Have gone through the checklist time and time again and have what they asked for. Now how much extra does one bring??? If everything goes well, hubby comes on the 14th and we leave to cross the border on the 22nd of July. Can it really be happening???? Am starting to get a little nervous but excited at the same time. Thank God for VisaJourney. I have learned lots from everyone on here, its so nice to know you are not alone in this process.

Have a safe trip! I'm told the interview is the easiest part of the process, the staff are easy to deal with and helpful.. and most of all to TRY not to stress about it! :thumbs:

We'll watch for your review with great anticipation. Every one I read gives me encouragement for my own when it comes up. :yes:

Thanks everyone for your best wishes. I am stressing more about suitcases than the interview. Should I take my laptop, should I not, if I do need extra room etc. I have tried out three suitcases so far for an bloody overnight trip. Sheesh.

Congratulations! Good Luck and try to relax and breath! Easy to say, hard to do, we're up for our interview in Montreal on July 19th and I'm already going through every detail... :-)

Write us a review, it's so good to read about someone else's experiences.

All the best in your new life with your hubby/ :dance:

Try to take the 'poutine tour' after the interview - is a great way to de-stress.
