Recommended Posts

Today I was interviewed in US Embassy Manila and it went great. I didn't thought it was that fast and easy although I admit I was having chills :P but the Filipina pre-screener and the American consul were both awesome, it helped a lot to calm my nerves. Them giving me and my fiancé good compliments especially coming from the American consul was very flattering :D it was then I heard him say "you're approved" really made my day. Over all, it was such a pleasant experience. Our K1 visa journey only took 4 months, 2 weeks and 3 days. Thank God for guiding us through. (L) I know the process doesn't end there but at least...... :)

Thanks and congratulations also to our fellow VJ Cesmt who also got approved today and keep me company. No more goosebumps, my friend. We made it :):dance:

Thanks, Kish, it turned out to be a bumble on my part cause I missed a yes or no question! I"ve already answered NO this morning to whether I've ever been convicted for criminal activity, violence, murder and all that other crazy stuff! Yes its very true that I've never done any of that stuff in this life, and I want to think in none of my past lives also! :rofl:

SO I'll be sending it to Vermont certified as soon as I can break from work to the post office!

Great job getting your visa, enjoy!!! :dance:

Today I was interviewed in US Embassy Manila and it went great. I didn't thought it was that fast and easy although I admit I was having chills :P but the Filipina pre-screener and the American consul were both awesome, it helped a lot to calm my nerves. Them giving me and my fiancé good compliments especially coming from the American consul was very flattering :D it was then I heard him say "you're approved" really made my day. Over all, it was such a pleasant experience. Our K1 visa journey only took 4 months, 2 weeks and 3 days. Thank God for guiding us through. (L) I know the process doesn't end there but at least...... :)
