work at a snails pace. Medical conditions here are absolutely awful, and law enforcement is untrained and completely incapable of dealing with
the insane crime.
I don't want to be here, my career is unusuable, a clean life is unreachable, and my dreams of being a comic artist are near impossible despite the insane work I put in; and to top it all off, life with the person I love and want to be with are a complete impossibility.
So here's the situation, Chatai (who lives in the United States) and I have been together for a good few years now, and we share a deep and meaningful connection. We've tried every legally available method to be together for about 3 years now, and nothing I do can get me over to where he is. I tried forming work links, but little came of that due to my unfinished schooling, lack of money ruins the possibility of getting a study visa, I tried obtaining my Italian citizenship along with an Italian passport since it allows for an automatic visitors visa to the States but thanks to the Venezuelan offices being unusuable due to their earlier mentioned slowness I can't even take a step towards getting it. The REQUIRED website to apply for these things is only available during a specific time of the day and runs so slowly that it becomes impossible to take care of any business before the time is up. Beyond that I've attempted applying for a visitors visa, it took 11 months to get an interview and upon arriving at my interview they instantly turned me down before I could even hand them the invitation letter out of the folder I brought
to the interview. 11 months of waiting for an interview that lasted less than 2 minutes.
This was only for VISITING, just to get the chance to meet my boyfriend. And so we've come to this desperate spot.
-We want to apply for a Marriage visa that is petitioned by the US resident (Chatai) to be issued towards their Fiance (In this case, myself Hoshi) allowing me to enter the country for a period of 90 days with the intent to get married. After many years together, and so many failed attempts we've long been ready to commit our lives to each other, though we did hope it could be done at our own pace rather than needing it simply to even be together, sadly we don't have the luxury of being picky. However, as you might be able to guess, one can't simply apply for a marriage visa without having met at least once. The only option we have is to visit each other in a country we both have access to, and since my countrys views on all foreigners is that they are rich, they are robbed and murdered on the spot. I won't bring my boyfriend to a country like that. Affording a trip to a place we can both meet at is going to be very expensive and we keep running into all kidns of issues that prevent us from saving properly. I can barely keep up with my own work due to the extremely bad set up I have, and recent expenses that took us by complete surprise. In
the end all we can do now is ask for help.
TL;DR: My boyfriend is using this site as a means of raising money for us to be able to meet up properly so that we can use it as a means for a more permanent change in my living situation. The trip will be a means of moving us towards being able to get me moved to the States and out of Venezuela forever.
I absolutely HATE saying it like this. "We need your help to pay for a vacation." Unfortunate as it may be, we need this. It's the only way for me to ever get out of this country. Please, I hope you can find it in your heart to lend us your support.
