Adventures in Immigration

Well, that's awesome.  We had been working on our paperwork concurrently with getting stuff ready for our wedding and just sent off our packet earlier this week.  So now we're in the "all done until the government gets back to us" phase.  This will hopefully make things easier and less stressful for you guys. :winkthumbs:

 

I agree. But there is the "government getting back to us" phase too!

 

I just got back from getting a COVID test. Should get the results in a few days. I'm sure it will show negative, but once I have confirmation, it's onto the plane! I am leaving October 9 now, because the ticket was around $100 cheaper...

Today I received my COVID test results. As expected, they came back as negative. The next step is to now get the lab results translated into Spanish for the authorities in Ecuador. I will take care of that tomorrow morning.

I am currently sitting near the gate for my flight. In an hour I will be on the plane & on my way. My adventure is about to begin.

 

One thing I should note is that I have never travelled internationally before, & this will be my second trip in an airline in my life. I'm not scared, but definitely excited. 

 

I should be in Ecuador by 10:45 in the morning.

Good luck to you. It's been an interesting read. I did a long distance relationship and married a russian woman. Could write a book about the things we've seen and gone through travelling between countries and the immigration process for her and her mother. Still together after 17 years so it must have been worth it but definitely not a simple journey.

A quick update. Currently in Ecuador with my fiancee. The only time I have spoken English is when her sister from the US called me: everything else has been in Español en todo. But everything is going great so far, & I look forward to more great things with her.

Update: we did the entrevista today & my documents were accepted & valid. Date of matrimony is 21 October.

 

This was in Guayaquil, which definitely has a NYC feel with a lot of "casual" economy. Its a big city & has that feel.
