most of you here know that i have this long distance relaitonship with my boyfriend. i am from the philippines and he's from sweden. and just last april, i applied and was interviewed for a resident's permit... for others, it's a fiancee visa. then, just today, my boyfriend called me saying that my visa's already approved and that i can go to sweden and be with him as early as june! we thought that the earliest time we could get the visa is by october. and so, i am glad that it's early and quick! i am just so happy and excited! how about you, what were the most excited moments in your life?

YEY for you! LOL. I wish I could get a visa but I'm just too lazy to even apply for a passport. LOL. Now you can be together. I'm so envious. Well, the only thing exciting that happened to me was when I passed by Board exams. I'm waiting for some other exciting moments...like when my boyfriend decides to finally propose to me...if ever that will happen.

haha. if that's the case, you really are lazy. passports are too quick to apply. hehe. maybe one day when you finally get the determination to do so, you can do it and you'll be surprised you ever did it. as for me, i did it for just some months. and i am glad my visa was approved real quick. as for you natalie, i know your boyfriend will propose marriage to you one day. you are a nice person as i know you here in myLot. just keep us updated!

Thanks. I sure hope so. And don't worry, one day I just might get off my lazy a** and go get myself that passport. Right now though, that a** is stuck in a chair. LOL.

Congrats to you both! This is an exciting moment for you. I remember when my husband was coming to the USA. The longest wait I had was the few hours he was at the airport waiting for the next flight. 5 hours! I paced the floor and waited for his call. We were so exhausted from the excitement of meeting one another that we slept like logs that night.

Thank you for taking notice of it, I have been having thoughts to quit smoking since but wasn't that much motivated. I guess my girlfriend is already a good reason, for me from stopping it!;) Thank you also for being a good friend!;)

well, believe it or not, my boyfriend who smokes for 17 years stopped smoking because of me, too. amazingly, he did it to surprise me. i did not ask him to stop. he was just determined to do so. you're a nice friend, too!

i was in your shoes a year ago when im anxiously waiting for my visa (family reunion visa)to be approve, i could say fiancee visa is a lot more quicker than my kind of visa as it tooks us more than six months in waiting, but its worth the wait when my visa finally approved. me and my husband both cried in happiness. anyway congrats maryanne, you'll be in another chapter of your life soon!

and i asked you to be my friend on friendster already. hehe. anyway, glad to know that you are doing okey in germany. actually, the visa i got isn't a fiancee visa. it's just what people are familiar of. but it's really a resident's permit and a working permit. and just like you, i will have to study their language, too. i have started the studies while here in the families already. and i admit, it's really difficult to study another language! grrrrrr.... anyway, hope to hear from you soon and see you on friendster!

Congratulations to you. I know how that feels. My wife was from a different country as well and I have to go through all those formalities and red tapes before we can get married and before I could bring her over to live with me at my country. However, she have to wait at least 5 years before she is eligible for a permanent residence status. It's a hassle but then love conquers all.
@maryannemax (12174)

oh. as for me, i need to stay in sweden for 2 years, too to get a permanent residence status. but it does not matter. for as long as we're together, we'll be fine. you're right! love conquers all. and i am happy about you and your wife!

How easy was it? I am so happy for you, so happy..You must love each other very much, pray for me too, as I have to be in a very good financial position in order to get my man over here, it's not that easy in England..Great going, I will pray for you, I bet you are really excited!!

i think it differs from country to country. the immigrant officer told my boyfriend when they called him last monday that our case was the quickest one they approved. or maybe, i was just lucky. hehe. i was interviewed last april 16 and was approved yesterday, may 23. so basically, it was just a matter of one month and some days. i hope things will work out for you, too and that your husband can be with you soon as well. i know how you feel. that's why i always hope that one day, you'll start a discussion like mine saying that your husband's visa to be with you has finally been approved, too. hehe. you take care 'el!

I feel a great emotion as I read your sentences. I know that you could not and can not wait the time to be with your boyfriend again. It is like a romantic movie, that I can not stop tears at the end. It so great! YOu can go so soon! I think my most happy and excited moments in my life were when I realized, that I was pregnant :) When I saw the two lines on the pregnancy test.
