I'm so happy right now, words can't even describe :joy: She's just waiting now for the visa so she can book a ticket. It will be almost one year since we saw each other. I know I am lucky because our journey went rather smoothly (disregarding NVC issues), I hope everyone gets to be with their loved ones soon. Hang in there!

Wow! I have been apart from my husband 9 nights, and 10 days and I was miserable with little to no sleep! I still won't see him til Saturday morning! I cannot imagine being apart for almost a year like you have! Kudos for holding down the fort til she returns! Our case took almost 3 years to complete. He was approved on Monday and got his visa today, he will be on his way home tomorrow!

Congrats and best wishes!!

Thank you and I'm happy for you too! :) Yes, being apart is very hard. But it was the only way to go so we can continue on with our careers while not wasting time. The sacrifice has paid off though! Congratulations to you too !

Hi,

When did you submit DS-160? After you received packet 3.5 letter from consulate or before that? My K-3 has been assigned a case number at NVC but I don't know what to do next :(
