Well you can imagine who has a big smile on her face today. An excellent service even though it cost an extra $300 fast track fee on top of the $1149 basic cost.
Sent FedEx Tuesday, arrived New York Wednesday 2pm, approved Thursday noon, Passport and visa arrived back UPS Friday 11am

Just think in 2 years time we can go through all this again to get Jaq permanent leave to remain in the UK.

Out to dinner tonight, i think we deserve it at least Jaq does after all the hard work she put in to those binders.

Had a great day out Wednesday last involving amongst other things Osprey, but that`s another blog.

Hi Les & Jaq,

Great news, all that time and effort, (not forgetting the EXPENSE!), bringing about the successful conclusion.

Now, maybe, you can relax a little.

Best wishes
Eric & Patsy

Fantastic! That's brilliant news, and so so quick - the extra you paid to fastrack it was worth every penny, saved a lot of anguish I'm sure.
I didn't realise this wasn't permanent though, never mind, it's just another bridge to cross (as opposed to going under them lol).
All the very best, looking forward to reading all about your lives back on board.
Regards, Aly

Hi Debbie
Plenty of sunshine here. Very little rain for weeks with temps reaching 93F.
Still to sort the house so probably be early Sept.

Thank you all. The expense was worth it. The visa is leave to remain for 27 months and just before the expiry you apply for permanent residency.
Yes now we can relax as the build up and the wait for a decision has been tiring.

Les Biggs said...

Hi John/Jackie
We are dealing with the heat like all good Americans, Air Con and more Air Con.
Hope your feeling better.

Les Biggs said...

Hi Heth and Carol
Yes a great relief getting the visa, all we need now is sell the house.
Both of us are home sick.
