Im back from my 8am interview and it went really well, i posted a review just now about it if anyone wants to read it. i didn't want to start a thread just for this but i promised myself and Tiffany last night that if i got the approval then i would have to say a big thank you to the VisaJourney community so here it is! i havent posted overly much throughout the process but when i have needed help its always been given quickly and in a friendly manner (special thanks to Nich-Nick who has answered to quite a few of my worries!)

Anyway now the soppy thanks are over and theres no more dreaded paperwork until im married its time to celebrate and luckily my interview date landed the same week Tiffany gets here for a 2 week holiday so we have lots to be happy about when she arrives this weekend!

Good luck to all who are yet to complete the end of the beginning of this lifechanging process! :thumbs:

Ah you'll be fine Hiroshi it was honestly so laid back compared to what i expected but i understand as i felt the same way, as long as you have all the papers they require then youll have no problems at all, i really did take the bare minimum of around 8 sleeves in my folder, i saw some people with mountains of paperwork with them!

I wanted to ask more Nich-Nick but didnt want to push my luck hehe
