Sure :)

For my 730 am interview, reached the consulate at 615am. There were too many people already though. We were segregated accordibg to our interview time. I was let in @730 ( appointment was at 730) all of us were given token numbers. At the first interview, an Indian lady checked all my originals and asked for few more financial proof s of my petitioner. After that she asked very basic questions about me, my petitioner etv, what does my husband do etc. I was asked to read a pamphlet on domestic violence given by this lady. Had another interview with an American guy. He took finger prints on the finger printing machine and asked me questions like what do I do , if I have any of my relatives there, my petitioner s name ( very basic questions) . he asked me to read the oath too. Then he said the golden words VISA APPROVED!!:)))) I was on cloud nine and had no words. Finally after such a process, light at the end of the tunnel!:) he gave me a slip which said visa approved and the next steps. I came out beaming and totally unaware of everything around me, floating in my own blissful state .:)I can't thank visa journey enough for the support and guidance I have got in almost every stage. It felt like a family. Thank you so so much Visa journey and the wonderful members in it.

I wish all of you waiting for the visa the very best of luck. There is light at the end of the tunnel and it's definitely worth the wait!

Cheers!!
