HI all Matthew here.

 

I just need to shout and vent and be happy and excited here. haha

So i had my K1 visa interview at the Johannesburg Embassy on Thursday the 18th of October. Friday the 19th at around 1pm i received an email from the US Consulate that my visa was released and is on its way.

Today is Sunday the 21st October and at 12:30pm DHL arrived at my house with my visa. 😄

 

I am so incredibly excited and so outstandingly amazed at how fast that was.

Anyways just wanted to let the community know.\

 

Peace and good luck to everyone still in the processes.
