I touched on this in a thread when Natasha got here but I didn't want to resurrect that thread. I just wanted to prepare my US friends here of a good possibility of what will happen when your lady arrives.
When they stamp her visa she will get a big envelope full of paperwork for immigration to go through. Like I said previously I arrived and hour early because I had to drive 2.5 hours just to get to the airport. Her flight arrived from Frankfurt and I waited anxiously as I watched all the Germans coming out. It was easy to see as every other flight was from Spain or Mexico or Brazil. It wasn't until about 4 hours after her arrival that she appeared. They wouldn't let her call me at all. They took her to a room and told her to sit down and relax. In that time I went to the Lufthansa counter, called the 1-800 custemer service #, talked to airport immigration security, airport customer serice... everything I could think of. Believe me I was having a heart attack. NOBODY could give me any information. They went through every document of hers several times over, questioned her and I think cleared everything through the Embassy that issued her visa. It was a long process and really stressed her out. Just be ready guys in case it happens to you.
I really appreciate that info Crash. Everytime I come through American immigration I am taken to that little room and locked up until they make their phone calls. I am an American citizen but still I go through this, my passsport is flagged and it is now all smiles and routine. But I remember the first time it was terrifying.
If and when I get Marina here I don't want any surprises. Thanks.
