VISA Approved -- WooHoo!!!!

17 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My wife's VISA was approved :dance::dance: -- quick 5 minute interview...

Questions included:

1. Husband's name, occupation, place of employment, family information, place of residence

2. Your family information

3. A lot of questions around dates (marriage, divorce, kid's b'days, anniversaries, last met etc.)

4. (In our case) Reason for divorce for both parties

5. What do you do right now, where do you stay? Not with in-laws? Why not?

They did NOT require DS-230 part II to be signed. She did have her fingerprints taken though...

Thanks everyone on VJ for all the support and encouragement. Dunno how I would have made it without you guys...

Cheers,

KP

Yup -- cleaning is right -- otherwise I can hear "naukrani se kyon nahi shaadi kar liya????"

They said that the visa will be delivered in a few days -- nothing more. THis VFS ####### is really a PITA.

Wow, very happy to hear your good news, kpathak. As for the cleaning, I'm married to a Portuguese fellow who's very particular. If he saw the way I've been living almost 6 months, he'd be horrified. But you and I are excused, because of all the preoccupation and stress. We may need professional cleaners at this point!

Jersey Girl -- the wifey gets here next Thursday and the cleaning crew gets in on Tuesday (while I am at work and the kids are in school :-). I have told the kids -- don't even use the bathroom on Wednesday -- ask the neighbors if you can use theirs <ha! ha!> J/K.
