Hello world smiley I feel like a really...... really...... lazy person leaving the blog for more than two month especially with and unfinished story…....So now the last part of all the documents epic…however…you know the end of the story already……I got the visa!!!!!…and I’m married heart laugh laugh so after I finished with this one I think about to write about Wedding…and married!!! wink

So….the story was left off when my documents arrived Germany….my fiancé (back then wink ) took the first chance to go to the city hall to submit the documents. It was really the last chance before the office is closed for Christmas.  We thought that everything will be ready and the documents will be with the court before Christmas (it was around 10 of Dec 2012) However…..the staff was so nice to inform us a few days before Christmas holiday that…she forgot some signatures!!!….and the documents still with her!!!! angry  So in the end……Richard  had to go to the city hall again after new year holiday to give a signature. Finally our documents were with the court ….and only around 2 weeks later we got a letter that our married is approved and we have to pay 100 euro so they will issue the approval document.  Richard paid already on that day….and our thought was that the approval document will be with us after Richard’s vacation in Thailand, around early Feb so it should be with me around late Feb……that was our hope……..

After the vacation….....the document was still not there….but there is a letter indicate that the court cannot locate our transfer…..with a few communications….some weeks waiting….the staff finally say….”Oh….I forgot….I will work on the document for you today….” ……..so finally the document arrived Richard on 08 Mar 2013….3 months after the my documents were sent to Germany. The approval document was sent to me on the next day…. normally it would take around 1 week for the document to arrive so…16 Mar but it would be too easy if it arrived on time….it took 5 days more of heavy hearted of waiting…..21 Mar the document arrived…..

Finally I got all required document to apply for the visa....after that it was quite a light story….I make a schedule with the embassy already on 27 Mar 2013 (3 times changes due to unexpected delay of the document). The submission of the visa went well….all documents were there and of course no problem with the interview. The staff told me to wait around 8-10 weeks before the visa is granted. However, unexpectedly on 12 April the embassy called and inform me that the my visa is ready laugh laugh….turn out this time they only need 2 weeks….lucky me winkangel

So…...that's all…I finally got the pass to go to my wedding….there will be more documents to handle after the wedding…but I think after all this….anything is fine with me wink

Cheers!!! See you in the next blog entry wink

With a lot of love heart heart

Pia and Richard
