This picture highlights the trip I will take in less than 3 weeks (picture courtesy of Google flights). I received my flight itinerary and we are actually booked to leave on August 17, not August 19 as originally told. We are taking a straight flight from PHL to Hamad International Airport, Doha. It will take about 12 hours and we will arrive the next day. It is a very long flight.
I also received a copy of my visa. My kids and husbands’ visa has not been approved yet. My husband’s visa may be rejected. If that happens they will resubmit the paperwork and try again and again. Worst case scenario, he won’t get it before we leave and will have to go on a visitor’s visa. After 20-30 days he will have to leave the country and re-enter. If it’s not approved by the end of year 1, we will not get a flight allowance for him to come back home. But they will keep trying until it’s approved. Apparently, they are very hesitant to approve a man’s visa whom is being sponsored by his woman. LOL! I’m getting very excited. I’m done shopping and just have to pack, but before that, I’m going to Jamaica with my sisters and nieces next weekend. (picture courtesy of Google flights)
