Default Visa Approved - fly next Friday

Hi,

I know I don't post a lot but wanted to let everyone know that I am going to be a pseudo American and I move on my L1A visa next Friday!

I'm going to San Antonio!!

I would say that perhaps I have been lucky but I happened to be in San Antonio a couple of weeks ago so I have rented a house which is available from Nov 1st. I will be staying at a friends until then.

I tell you, I am very excited and very pleased everything has gone so well.

I will be writing up my experiences and will share them with y'all (see, getting used to the vernacular already). I know people have worries and concerns and I think my experience at the US Embassy will be of interest to many people going through the same process.

As I say, I haven't posted much but love the help and atmosphere here and have got a lot of help from older posts

Cheers!

Good for you, hope your trip goes well

Yes, come on back and post your experiences, help/advice, it's always better for people to have a 'heads up' if they are planning the same journey

Ohhh well done and good luck, we're going the week after you :-)

I think writing up your embassy experience would definitely help others, I know I read as many as I could find before I went!
