Interview in Ankara, Turkey

16 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I know some of you guys have been waiting to hear from me. Today was the day. She did get her approval. :dance: I couldn't get every single detail. It's been a crazy day at work but long story short she told me that she was out in 15 minutes. She was asked proof of ongoing relationship and she handed them the chat logs, email etc along with the pictures. She said the officer was really nice and the only question he asked her was 'what do you guys have in common with your husband?'. They wanted to see the copy my 2010 tax return and the officer said 'your visa is approved.' From what I know it was as simple as that. She got a text message from UPS saying that they picked up her package from the embassy so she should have her passport tomorrow. I will fill in with more details once I get more time...
