OMG- Flights are booked

  1. Well we are through the final hurdle - Embassy went well yesterday and we booked our flights last night- now the massive job of sorting out the house pancking and getting on the plane. We are shell shocked we can not belive that we have finally got to this point.

    Well done! congratulations too, We've been there too last friday, I couldn't believe I've missed you. There were about 13-15 IV applicants so far mixed with hundreds of NIV's too in the waiting area. I saw IV applicants carrying copies of medicals in "big brown envelopes". Tell us something new when you reach US... I wish you all the best...
