GOT THE VISA on 9th!!! Got the Passport Stamped Today!!

22 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey guys...sorry for updating after 2 days but haven't got net access.

But the good news is that I got the VISA at first go without been put in AP.

Here is the whole experience.

Got to embassy at 7:30 AM and after submitting the bag (you can't take any sort of bag with you as only plastic bags are allowed)

and the mobile phones (all electronic gadgets), took the ticket for shuttle service and got all ready for a ride to embassy.

At embassy known thing is about two lines one for immigrant visa and other for non-immigrant visa, went in immigrant one called upon

quickly as it wasn't too busy that day.

Fingerprints taken first then went to submit the interview letter, medical and passport to window#06.

From there I got a list of approved courier services in all cities of Pakistan with a Token stamped on it.

Waited...waited and just waited...but to my surprise it wasn't too bad, called after 2 hours on window#08.

And here the real game has started. White lady greeted with a smile.

Followed her with the Oath.

Questions:

1. Can you please hand me over the Original Urdu NikahNama.

2. How long have you been married.

3. How you two get to know each other and what was the connection led to the marriage.

3. How long you two stayed together after the ceremony.

4. Have she came down for a visit afterwards.

5. How exactly she acquired the citizenship.

6. How often you two talk.

7. Can you show me the pictures of the ceremony.

The only two things the Officer asked me was the Original Urdu NikahNama and the Ceremony Pictures.

No On-Going Relationship Evidences..No Invitation Card..No Receipts of any gifts exchanged or what-so-ever.

And then came those words which I certainly and honestly wasn't expecting because I already

developed my mind that at Islamabad Embassy there is no way a Male can get away without been

suffered through an AP.

But you know what she said.."Everything seems to be in Order and Congratulations you have been Approved

& you can get your Passport in 7 working days"..

Got a call today on 11th from AMEX to pick up my Passport..means got it in exactly 2 working days.

That's still unbelievable to me.

I have only one observation and that the Officer already made up her/his mind regarding your case

and the questions are just mere formality to make the process more authentic and formal.

Just wanna take a moments and praise ALL my folks here on Visa Journey for your extended and

kind support of all nature during my process and I wish ALL the very best for those who are in

AP and those too who are yet to experience the formality of Interview.

BEST OF LUCK GUYS.

KIND REGARDS.

Many Many Congratulations on your Approval. My Fiancee's interview is on the 18th of January, this coming Friday and I will be accompanying her. I have a couple of questions, firstly, how much was the shuttle fees, and secondly, did you notice any females who were having their interviews that day and if you did, how did it seem that their interviews went? I hope our interview goes as smoothly as yours went. Once again, Congratulations :)

Thanks heaps bro. wasn't expecting it though.. :no:

Now they are taking a flat rate for Shuttle which is Rs.500/person

but ya there was one girl called before me & co-incidentally

we both had our medical done at same hospital on same day

at Karachi so kinda knew her before..

she was asked very briefly n precisely I should say

few normal n formal questions about her husband n

then she was told you are approved..

so don't stress specially when as a US Citizen you are joining

her for the interview..added bonus for the beneficiary!!

All I can say is be optimistic and sure about your relationship..that's it!!

Wish you a good experience there and stay blessed..
