Recommended Posts

YESSSSSSSSS!!!! Our case was closed today!!!!! :dance: :dance: :dance:

Beyond excited to get our interview date!!!

I cant thank the VJ community enough for all your help, tips and guidance. This site made our journey. THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!

Thankful we had a smooth journey, NOA2 in 77 days, quick transfer to NVC and then we took our time to accomodate our moving plans but once the IV and AOS was finally sent, everthing was processed smoothly and in a timely manner, no stupid RFEs. And the operators at NVC always nice and friendly.

Complicated and time consuming but if you do your due diligence and pay attention to all instructions and details it all comes together in the end.

YAY YAY YAY!!!!!!!

Wishing all of you a smooth journey well!!! :thumbs:

Why do people feel the need to move this post??? It was about the process and the procedure that I endured in order to share my experience with others and also to thank the VJ users and provide positive feedback for others going through the same process.

The point of posting this in the original forum was because more people actually read it.

Im sorry but way too much regulation for a so called free forum. PEACE. Oh and thanks for the congrats Ryan H. (F)
