Today, June 24, 2013, I got my passport application submitted, and hopefully $211.20, two to three weeks, and one visa later (this could take months), I should be cleared to travel in and out of the country. I also heard a couple of days ago that if my visa is approved early, that I may be able to leave for Brazil early which will be pretty exciting.
