Glad to hear this is all coming together for you :)

What (if any) plans have you made for your collection? I've no idea how you'd ship something like that!

Probably have them shipped over the same way my wife will ship her clothes :lol: In the mean time, I am trying to pick out some of my favorite pieces to act as mascots for the move as they'll be traveling in the baggage ahead of the others. AM Leo Prime and his team are strong contenders if you must know.

Ok, why in the hell did it take a month? :BANG_HEAD:

Finally sent off the requested paper work, hopefully everything will fall into place.

FINALLY! Progress! :BOWDOWN:

After a long delay, we decided to call in and ask what was the hold up. Long story shot: my application got accepted and will now move into the final phase. :DANCE:

Oh god it's getting closer...... Run children run... I'll try to fight it off with a stick!

Congrats. I know how slow paperwork can be a lot of the time. Just out of curiosity, I understand if you don't want to answer, how much is it going to cost to ship all your things here?

At least I know what bait to use in case the rabbitcatgirl reverts to her criminal Communist ways and has to be apprehended. It pays to think ahead.

Just no regular retail Mini-Cons, my tastes are more expensive. But well worth it :lol:

Good news, the confirmation letter just came in the mail and it says they'll come to a final decision within 30 days. 30 days! In the mean time, my wife's Resident's Permit for the Netherlands will expire, but we've already requested a 5-year extension. But that is taking its sweet time...

*bumps* Long overdue update, and it's a doozy. :BANG_HEAD:

OK, first the good news: progress! I've passed initial checkups, all payments have been dealt with (Tip: they only accept IE for internet payments. Damn you Bill Gates!) and now, the next major obstacle: forms with legalese. And we kinda need help with some of the legal definitions to avoid any screw-ups. Thing is, the ones who helped us before can't provide any since they're "legal documents", so we have to look elsewhere...

JelZe I can't help but feel your dealing with the wrong people. Start complaining to the Congressmen/women from her home state, federal and state. Write a few nicely worded letters to the US ambassador to the Netherlands, that is where you live isn't it? Cause frankly this is taking a ridiculous amount of time.

Considering the reputation government has for things like this--actually, come to think of it, for just about everything--I'd say he's getting the fast track. Passing the buck is just par for the course in bureaucracies.

Don't I know it, it's the same anywhere. At least I'm not rejected off the bat like my wife was when she first applied for her first Dutch Residence Permit. :roll:

Ok, time for a little update. :oops:

Sent in what hopefully is the final paperwork, the Affidavit of Support documents. This is actually the second time we had to send it in, the first contained a very minor error ("N/A"| instead of the required "0") so we were told to send it in again. Apparently government are pedantic about rules and procedures anywhere and not just here in the Netherlands. It's gotten to the point the process of bringing my wife over was easier than me going over there. Go figure.

Sometimes things like that arecomputer scanned and the computer is too stupid to know n/a is the same thing as 0. Or, maybe the intern is lazy...
