Nothing happens to the visa... it'll be valid for as long as its valid. If your passport expires, you'll need a new one and you'll then need to carry both passports. The solution is easy - get a new passport.

Well hopefully I get the visa before my passport expires as getting new one is not so simple as I have since Married since applying for my current passport but unfortunately was married in Fiji and they do not recognise my marriage certificate as a valid change of name but I don't not have enough Identification to renew my passport under my maiden name just another hurdle to overcome I guess but just out of interest if I manage to do a complete name Change can I carry my old passport with visa in my maiden name and new passport with my married name?

Hello my boyfriend had his interview 2nd March, it's currently been 4 & half months & heard nothing back but they said it would take approximately 6 month. Does anyone know how long it does take? Then how long it takes to send passport back to London & returned. We go to Vegas in October & starting to get worried about timescale. Thank you .

Welcome to BE.

Members on here always say, 'Do NOT book any trips until you have your visa in hand'. As to the how long, well, how long is a piece of string?. It will take as long as it takes, no-one can give a specific time as all cases are diferent.

We booked it, not knowing we would have this trouble with visas.

My Husband had his interview March 18th. So we're not too far behind you. We're still waiting. Keep us posted please.

Yep, my husband had his interview on 5th Nov. First experience of this process took about 6 months so we were not expecting to be waiting 37 weeks this time around - absolutely everything about his application is the same.

It is showing as 'administrative processing' on CEAC and has done from the start.

We've emailed them a few times now and receive the standard response.

I can only reiterate the advice not to make any travel commitments, we will learn this the hard way as our flights to Florida are in 3 weeks. Given the increased turnaround time for passports to be returned we are now not expecting to travel.

Good luck to those waiting.

Yes. You'll probably also want to carry a copy of your marriage certificate.

No one knows for sure... but 30 weeks seems average - so, closer to 7 months. Some a bit more, some a bit less.

Usually a couple of weeks.

Thanks Ian. We booked it last October online but didn't know anything about not being allowed in if you had been arrested for possession of drugs, wish we did & started process earlier. Interview was 2nd March & we go 14th oct so exactly 7 1/2 months. Fingers crossed he's allowed in & it comes in time . Thank you again for your reply .

Looking forward to Ian's response to this one. Lol

All I will say is it is going to be a very very close call time wise on this one.

Sorry to disappoint, but there really is no response for this! People often believe that their past won't come back to haunt them... until they want a holiday in the US.

This is about all I can say on it also. They might make it... they might not.

Looks like many of us are in same situation learning the process the hard way, on the Aust website it states current wait is 27 weeks but some could take longer but by posts on this site seems to be pretty much all are taking more than 27 weeks it feels like the whole system has come to a sudden stop I hope this is not due to the technical issues with printing visas last month just our luck it happens now! Just trying to do the right & honest way.

Even if it did, you'd never know... so what difference?
