[1: 884 of 10,000] I Almost Didn’t Leave Dubai for Jordan!!!

In Journal on January 3, 2013 at 5:43 PM

The crazy workaholic Yor was working until leaving home. We left at 5:30 AM as we expect our flight to leave at 8:45 AM. I am sorry that we can’t check-in online as it isn’t available for Fly Dubai’s Amman flight.

As soon as we reached Terminal 2 Dubai Airport, we were shocked to find out that the flight was changed to 11:00 AM. Since my vacation kicks in and my laptop was no where in sight, I bought myself a latte and though sleepy tried to read the news to kill time.

As the time stroke 8:00 AM we went in to check-in our baggage and we can’t believe our biggest shock. The visa was written in Arabic and in good faith, we thought it is the right one…

The Jordan Consulate website says visa processing will take about 6 to 8 weeks. By October 11, 2012 we submitted the proper papers. We informed them that we are leaving on December 27th, 2012 and will return by January 2nd, 2013. According to the airline, the visa expired since November 11, 2012.

All our things were packed so we won’t accept not flying that day! Thank God that the Jordan Consulate is a bit close from the airport and we found a good taxi driver so we head straight to sort it out. We are really not taking no for an answer and we were willing to pay the processing fee just for us to catch our 11:00 AM flight. It was a very Amazing Race feel and after the consulate personnel flirted, teasing me that my application was rejected while my sisters were approved, and finally at the end giving me his digits especially after finding out I am single, with new 1-month visa, we head back fast to the airport.

Whew! It was an exhilarating experience. Vacation here we come! Thank God the flight was moved to 11:00 AM and we didn’t find out about it or else we’re absolutely screwed. Blessing.
