Just wanted to say hi....

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi fellow VJers...Just wanted to see what is going on in this forum. I have been through one visa journey with a Moroccan man that ended in divorce. Too many differences and his anger issues sunk that one. I am now engaged to be engaged to a wonderful man from Pakistan who is mature, kind, and sweet. We have talked for more than a year now and will meet this summer to see how we like each other in person. Meanwhile, I just wanted to see how things go when you try to do a K-1 in Pakistan. Even though I have been through this 5 years ago (was married for 3), I know that it is much harder now to bring someone to the states. And with Pakistan and the US in all the political turmoil, I'm hoping it's not impossible. Just wanted to say hi and get to know some of the folks in this forum. I hope the guys from Pakistan don't have the same reputations as the MENA men..lol :innocent:

Thanks for the welcomes...I was reading the AP stats...Are some of these pending ones still going on after one or two years, or am I reading this wrong? So they can keep a case open forever? What about refiling? I know about Morocco, but what is Pakistan like? Lots of fraud from there? I doubt there are as many applications for visas as with Morocco. Anybody have some quick stats on Pakistan? Thanks! PS--I don't see the Moroccan man-bashing here like I do in the MENA forum. (Not saying whether it is deserved or not..lol) Is that because there are fewer women petitioning for men to come to the USA? Do fewer seem to get through the Pakistan US embassy than the Moroccan one?
