Maybe things will work out after all. Simon spoke to the people at the Embassy in Canberra today and set up an appointment for the interview. It sounds like the letters we sent in helped prove our case and after what I understood they don’t think there will be any issues for us getting the application approved.
But I’m not going to jump up and down of joy yet. We’ll still have to see what happens. But Simon didn’t have to bring print outs of our e-mail conversations or lots of photos of us to the interview if he didn’t want to so it sounds like they believe that we’re not in a scam relationship. I’ll make sure he still brings some pictures, like the photo book I gave him for Valentine’s Day. It sounds like the interview will be more like an informal conversation so that’s good. Since Easter is coming up the interview is booked for the 9th of April, so two more weeks to wait. After Simon has had his interview, the application will be sent to Sweden and it’s my turn to get questioned.
Simon also has been sending in some applications for jobs in Sweden. Apparently there might be an issue with him working within the security/alarm business (at least as a technical engineer) not being a Swedish citizen. We’re trying to find out all the facts about this.
