Ok, as some of you may know already, my fiance has been in AP since October 17th.... i know this is not a long time to some people in MENA, but this is the Frankfurt Germany Embassy, and I have never seen ANYBODY go through this from there... so I am trying to figure out what to do?

First off, I am going to see him finally!!! I found a cheap ticket leaving out Monday... yes this monday the 10th! :) i haven't been with him since February, and its been tooooooo long.... i will only be able to stay a week, and come back the 18th... so my questions are this.. should I email the embassy and let them know I am coming and request an appointment? (Can I even do that?).. can we just go to the embassy? Should I contact my congressional representative to see what is going on? Will that even help? Can they do anything? My fiance had to request his passport back temporarily so he can renew his German visa since this is taking so long... maybe we can just drop it back off in person when he is done? I really am looking for suggestions and what you would do in this situation... he is not German, but i still never heard of it taking so long...

I would LOVE LOVE LOVE for him to travel back with me the 18th.... any suggestions to make this possible deserves a big KISS! :)

PLEASE HELP ME!!! :help:

Okay, first......the embassy in Germany may operate differently-but you're right....AP since OCt isn't that long. These days it's taking a long time. If you know somebody or know somebody who knows somebody contacting your rep may help...but if you're an average joe like the rest of us....it doesn't matter....

It won't hurt to email the embassy and let them know you'll be there...but that is unlikely to matter since if word got out that's all it took...EVERYONE would be over seas fetching their love ones :) I know this happens a lot where my husband is from. It doesn't matter if you are pregnant, having a child soon, your husband hasn't seen his children....etc etc. it just doesn't matter. We even asked if there was some sort of fee we could pay to expedite the process and they said no. Like I said...it won't hurt to ask...and maybe you'll be lucky (I hope for you you are)....but be hopeful w/o losing sight of the sad system we're stuck in! :(

Well thanks! I am crossing everything and praying something will happen! Its amazing how much just knowing when I will see him again has brought me out of some dark days... when your thinking "geez he should be here by now" :wacko:

Since you are on AP I don't know that you can do anything to speed it up.

Just go and enjoy your time with your SO. May as well enjoy yourself during this ridiculous process.
