To be honest, I'm a little nervous about the Australian Embassy interview.*
I seem to not have the best of luck with immigration officers.
Incident # 1 - September 2011, Leaving for Vietnam. Got probed by lady immigration officer upon seeing my spanking new and BLANK passport. Did not bring my old passports at the time, so I seeemed to be a viable TNT candidate.
Incident # 2 - August 2012, Denied a US Tourist Visa. Failed to present sufficient evidence of strong ties to the country. Granted, I was ill-prepared and only had a half a heart going through that interview. Nonetheless, felt awful to be rejected. Oh, but I will have my day, U.S.A...
If there's one thing I learned from my past immigration encounters:
BE PREPARED. With a purpose, a plan and papers.
We can do so much to control the outcome of this interview, but there are things that are out of our hands. So I'm praying for :
1) The presence of mind and composure to say what is appropriate
2) A kind-hearted immigration officer
The Lord has not forsaken us so far, I have faith that He will take us all the way.
*The purpose of which is to establish that G and I are in fact in a
Genuine and Continuing Relationship, and that I am eligible to be
counted as a Secondary Applicant and therefore immigrate with him.
