After being so nervous for my interview on Wednesday it went a lot easier than I thought. My appointment was at 9 but I got there at 8 and after a short wait for security I had my number and was seated by 8.15. I was waiting till about 10.20 before I was called up for the first time to submit my documents. I then went up to the window handed in my documents, photos and fingerprints. I was given a pink form to fill my postage details out on for delivery and went to sit back down. I had to ask someone for a pen and filled this out. Started reading my book again while settling in for what I thought would be another long wait, while thinking I should of brought a second book. 5-10 mins later I was called up again and was thinking they needed more documents off me and it was actually for my interview. I had to re do my fingerprints, was given back my original birth certificate and police record back. Then I was asked to raise my right hand and swear I was telling the truth. I was then asked to write my fiances name and sign a form, at this point I believe my hand was shaking and I was asked how we met. After answering this one question I was asked if we were getting married and I said yes on the 10th of September and I was then told I was approved. I think I said thank you about 5 times and then went to pay for delivery.

I was told I would get my passport back and the envelope to open at poe and I was done.

So glad that it is done and so happy that I will be with my fiance soon.

I was just wondering do they give me a form when I go through immigration? or do they just take the stuff off me and send me on my way?

Thanks so much and thanks for all the support and questions I have had answered on here. I am sure I will have tons more for AOS.

Thanks so much and thanks for all the support and questions I have had answered on here. I am sure I will have tons more for AOS.

CONGRATULATIONS!! Ours is on Tuesday morning. I bet the relief is an amazing feeling. Good luck with your future plans.
