We are so happy...

We are just so happy....

We were granted a US Non-Immigrant Visa today. That is for myself and Margaux's renewal and for new application for Bianca.

This was how it went when we were in Window4 already infront of the consul...Dicky was with us.

Consul: So where do you plan to go now?
Me: California
Consul: Where in California?
Dicky: LA, actually Temecula
Consul: What's in Temecula?
Dicky: My sister lives there
Consul: Ok, can I see you old visa? (pertaining to me)
Me: here (handed him my old passport)
Consul: What about you sir? Do you have a visa already? Can I see your passport?
Dicky: Yes, already have, here it is (handed him the passport)
Consul: (returned my old passport and Dicky's) Ok...
(typed something in the computer) after 15 seconds...
Consul: Here, I'm giving you visas (flagging the yellow slips to Bianca's face...while Bianca was banging the window with her hand, hehehe) Oh, little girl, are you going to mess this up? How old are the kids?
Me: 2 and a half (pointing to Margaux) and 11 months (pointing to Bianca)
Consul: Who is the big mess? (smiling)
Me: Both of them! (laughing)
Consul: Oh, my one year old is such a mess. Here... (handed me the yellow slips)
Me and Dicky: Thank you very much
Consul: Goodbye.

May pahabol si Margaux while we were still infront of the consul:

Margaux: Jaburi (Jollibee) na?!

Hay, nagutom na ang anak ko kakaintay for our turn for interview...

And yes, we celebrated by eating in Jollibee! Hehehe, special request eh.

The interview was such a breeze! It was just about less than 5 minutes, parang 3 minutes lang. He didn't even looked at our clearbook where all docs are there.

We are just hoping that we could get the 10years.

Anyway, he didn't ask as to when we plan to travel, unlike before that we were asked specifically when we are going...we just got one year that time...

But what the heck...sige na nga kahit 6 months lang, masaya na ako!

Needless to say, we are really very happy!

Dicky said to me on our way home that we will definitely go next year! Oh, can't wait...can't wait...

Hey Jody! This is great news, congrats! Sorry that you didn't get your 6-months but I'm sure you will next time. Woohoo!

Jody said...

Hi Jen! We reapply this year and hopefully 10 years talaga, esp for me. They said pag kids, max yung 5 years. We would know it when we receive the passport. But as I said happy na rin ako kahit na 1 year lang or even 6 months pa...pressure nga lang to travel agaid.
