US Embassy In Kuala Lumpur

It was still dark when I was there joining in the queue at around 7am in front of the US Embassy entrance. My appointment was fixed for 7.40am, I guess the earliest slot for the day. Initially the queue was quite long but when the guard announced that those with appointment at 7.40am were only to queue up, the line became so much shorter.

After handing over my ID to the counter, I was given a security pass and I have to join another line again, this time to go inside the embassy. Before entering to the compound, one by one were being scanned and handphones were handed over to the guards.

Upon entering the building, we were given another number by the teller machine and wait to be called. First counter, checking the confirmation letter, bank receipt and passport. Then told to wait for another counter to check our fingerprints, all the 10 fingers... And lastly, the most "heart pumping" counter is the "interview." I guess my blood pressure must be sky-high while waiting for my number to be called... and when it was called, the interview took less than a minute.... pheww.... what a Big relief!

Last and not least, I was given a card, not a green card but white card... LOL... With this white card, you can either collect your passport yourself or you can ask someone to collect for you the next day or within the next 10 working days.   The visa is finally done!

A nice experience...something not what I expected it to be... that caused me to have a sleepless night yesterday... so glad that it is finally over..

Now I will wait for sponsors.... patiently I will wait... lol...
