Hey congratulations! :dance::dance::dance:

Commucicating with the embassy there is quite easy as they respond pretty quickly to emails keep us updated on the rest of it cause there are like so few people that actually wrote a review for their interview experience there.

Also I'm going to be right behind you over there, so I want to see if they give out that Visa fairly quickly after the interview.
