Collecting Visa/Passport from Embassy in London
 
Hi,

Does anyone know if once your visa has been stamped in your passport, if you are allowed to personally collect it from the US Embassy in London.
Just thinking of saving a few days waiting :)

I have searched online but cannot find any info on this.

Thanks,
Michkin

You may not collect it in person.

Thanks for the speedy reply!

Its all so close now - can't wait for the interview to be over! :)

I've read it can be as quick as 3-5 days to have the passport returned, so i'll just be extra patient!

Ah, I see! Immigrant Visa.. very exciting!
You can familiarize yourself with this info in this article; check out the 'Welcome to America' link at the bottom.. very useful!

Hehe! Considering how much we paid for the EB5, the courier fee will be a drop in a very large ocean! :-)
As we are in London I thought we could just pick it up.....but alas, it is not to be!
