I suggest that you first obtain am Entry / Exit Record (covering last seven years) from the National Immigration Agency.

You will have to apply for this document in person with your passport at the NIA.

Then take this record to the APRC counter (I think there is a dedicated one), and ask if you are eligible based on this record.

Don't go into the details of your marriage or ask whether the 10 year rule applies etc. Just let them tell you whether you are eligible.

I'm pretty sure that you are.


These are excellent suggestions (especially the part about not raising details or questions unless it becomes necessary -- don't ask for trouble).

ok, good news. I have been speaking with Northcoast Surfer, and he believes that I won't have to wait the 10 years. YEAH!!! I am going to the NIA Tomorrow to ensure that I am elligable to apply.

Will keep you updated.
