I know I'm not what you'd call a Heavy Participant here, but that's really because I find the answer to pretty much every question I have just by searching. This board is an incredible resource and (more importantly) a wonderful support group for all of us undergoing the immensely stressful visa process.

Anyway.

It's been about six weeks since I got my interview appointment letter. Go me!

I spent the summer in California, ten weeks with my fiancee, and other than having to fill out one of those "You give it back when you leave" things, it was all lovely. To be honest, I was a little concerned that I was pushing my luck... Showing up at the airport with a return ticket ten weeks in the future while you've got a pending K-1 and the next thing on the journey is the interview? I wouldn't have been in the least surprised if they'd laughed at me and told me to go home.

But they didn't, and we had a great summer, and when I got back there was still no interview letter waiting for me. So I phoned and Montreal said "Everything's cool, probably be a couple more weeks until you get the letter"... So I waited almost a couple more weeks before phoning again (because I'm impatient like that, you see) and they said "Looks like you're scheduled to come in on October 18th" and I said CAN YOU SAY THAT AGAIN PLEASE :dance:

So that was a good day. And the next day the letter was in the place where that guy with the bag of letters puts them. And so that was a good day too.

So yeah, here I be. 90% finished, but no less stress. Which is the way it is, I suppose.

Two and a half weeks from now I'll be sitting on the other side of a table from a guy who is saying "Okay, that's great. You're approved. Come back tomorrow and show them this and..." but I won't hear him because I'll be too busy saying NO LISTEN I'M NOT DONE TELLING YOU HOW GREAT THIS IS SERIOUSLY MAN and making hooting noises as I grin big enough to split my face in half.

All told I guess it will have taken 13 months or so, but that's with an RFE at the start and the Long Way of doing the police check. Roughest year of my life, and not likely to unroughen for a couple weeks more, but holy cow nearly done.
