After a very long and much more difficult process than I ever imagined, I finally got my J1-visa!
Last thursday I had the final interview at the American embassy in Stockholm. After standing in line outside in +4° weather for about 1 hour and 40 minutes I was finally let in through the security check. Well inside the process didn’t take more than 15 minutes. I had all the paperwork ready and was well prepared. The three people that were in front of me in the line weren’t though and had to run on to the bank or post office. After the leaving my fingerprints and answering a very nice ladies questions I was allowed to leave. – “Your passport with the visa will arrive within a week”. And yesterday it did!
I have now booked a flight that leaves at 9am Sunday morning from Stockholm Arlanda. FliteTest, Chad and the American continent, I hope you are ready for 18 months of Swedish awesomeness, because here I come!
