Wow, congrats. I get really happy when I hear successful stories on here. 

Why were you guys put on AP in the first place if you don’t mind me asking. 

CO requested for a letter from our joint sponsor explaining why she will sponsor the family (interview - July2018)

 

*We submitted the letter together with our passports (2 weeks after interview)

 

*Long wait (over 6 months)

 

*Passport returned (DHL)

 

*Embassy requested for new medical reports and police clearance (submitted together with passports few weeks later)

 

*Another waiting period

 

*Senator contacted Embassy

 

*Embassy called and instructed us to book a 221G follow-up appointment for fingerprint scan and re-oath

 

*Passports returned (DHL)

 

*221G appointment booked (took a couple of weeks to get a date)

 

*221G follow-up interview day

-consular section requested for DS-260s to be resubmitted (gave us only 30 minutes to do so)

-submitted DS-260s confirmation pages

-took the oath and scanned our finger

-got our passport photos captured

-returned to CO and he said congratulations your visas have been approved

- Gave us the white slip for collection

 

*Now waiting for pick-up alert

 

It's been a journey full of waiting, suspense, anxiety, doubt & hope...Through it all God remained faithful

 

We'll give God all the glory

Thank you for your response and putting it in such details. 

It sure has been a long journey for you and your family. 

But thank God it’s all over and yes all glory to the Almighty God. He works in mysterious ways and everything happens for the best and for a reason. 

Again, congrats. And please pray for me and my fiancé as we are going through administrative processing right now and it’s really difficult. Just trying to be patient and calm through it all. 

Good luck and be safe.

Thank you. Everything will be fine with your application. Just as God did it for us, He'll do it for you guys. You need a lot of patience when you're in AP. Your Senator or congressman can do follow-up for you.
