Entries from everyone
The visas are here and we changed the date of flight for December 3rd. The only issue is that they screwed up my landing paper (it has 3 mistakes including my citizenship, which is important). I hope we will recieve the corrected form very soon! We are sending the container on Tuesday so we have a very busy weekend of measuring, weighting and wrapping ahead. 2 years ago
We got an approximate date for our flight! It’s not all bad because we gonna have a 7 hours layover in London! We already decided to go to Borough Market. It’s gonna be fun, although a little tiring too. We gonna have 6 big suitcases, 2 small and 2 small items (backpack and handbag). I can’t iagine how we will be able to move around with that mountain of luggage. But we already have 2 people volunteering to meet us in Vancouver which is great. Now we just have to recieve our passports by mail. 2 years ago
Sending our passports to the embassy tomorrow! They should be back in less than 3 weeks! 2 years ago
Our status changed to “medicals received”, so it should be any day now! Checking our email hourly :) 2 years ago
We got an email from Bucharest that asked for more details about our travels for the ladt year. We sent the reply immediately with all the supporting documents. That’s probably the last step we had left before the passports will be requested. Fingers crossed! 2 years ago
So now we are in Romania waiting for embassy to request our passports. Waiting sucks, especially here. I struggle so much here and feel completely alone. No one around speaks Russian or even English (except of my husband, obviously). He doesn’t keep in touch with his old friends so our socializing is limited by his family. It just seems too much for me. Feeling trapped and depressed, pretty much the same like during the 3 months we spent here last year. Romania is for tough people… 2 years ago
So I’ve been dating my boyfriend for almost a year now and we really want to live together, however since he lives in Canada and I in Sweden it is indeed troublesome.
Canada is obviously the best choice, since I am fluent in English and he is the one with an education.
As the plan lies now I will travel to Canada in the end of November/beginning of December on a tourist visa. Stay until the beginning of April and go home to renew my passport and send in an application for the International Experience Canada or a “Working Holiday” as it used to be called.
This will allow me to live there for a year and we will see where it goes from them, I might be able to get a working visa or we will go for the sponsorship option.
Right now my main goal is to collect money for my trip and IEC (you need 2500CAD in your account to apply for it). 2 years ago
I called them again and the lady (same one every time!) answered that my papers will be mailed on Monday! If it’s true, then we should receive it in a week in Romania. We can be getting requests to send passports for a visa somewhere in September. So unbelievable! Another country again… 2 years ago
So we were requested criminal checks from Romania and Belarus even though my husband stayed in Belarus for 5 weeks only and I stayed in Romania for about 3 months. We asked in an email if they were sure we needed it (official website says no). They confidently answered we do… So off we go. We needed to go to Belarussian embassy and to give my sister power of attorney to get my husband’s record and did the same with me and my sister in law. After we sent it, we receive another email. Yes, you guessed it right! we didn’t need it! We were simply speechless. It’s just so unprofessional. We wasted so much time of our own, and then my sister and sister’s in law time. Unbelievable! Not to mention that that single power of attorney paper is like 60 pounds, plus sending it to our country, plus translation, etc.
And then there’s FBI saga. It’s been 6 weeks since we re-sent my fingerprints. It takes 4 weeks to get an answer. I called them 3 times – they told me they never received it and can’t find a tracking number. Well, today we got in mail a letter from them asking for payment! What a heck! They told me we don’t need to include payment since we already sent one the first time! So now I need to fix that. More frustration and waiting… 2 years ago
