Yes. The visa will show refused until such time as the waiver is approved, at which point it will change.



No. You'll hear nothing whatsoever from now until such time as the waiver is approved and you'll receive notice for him to send his passport.



Almost all waiver recommendations are eventually approved. Indeed, I've not heard of a single waiver recommendation that has been denied.



Do not book any travel until the passport is in your husband's hands. Yes, it'll be expensive... but the cost to your mental health will be more expensive. There is absolutely nothing you can do at this point except wait.



The person lied to you - either deliberately or because he didn't know any better. Regardless, the person is allowed to lie to you with impunity.

Thank you very much for answering all my questions. Do I just have to trust that everything will be sent of and getting dealt with? Don't want 8 months to come and go when the waiver may not have even been sent!
Also it may sound daft but that's why am asking until he has the visa can he not fly even though it's in process?

Unfortunately, yes.

He can certainly fly... anywhere except to the US.

Hi all

Waiting for my husband's L2 visa to be sent to him following approval of waiver of ineligibility...I provided updated credit card details to them today on their request.

Am thinking that once payment taken (likely Monday as think they close at 12EST) then visa will be sent to courier

Welcome opinions!
Thanks

Update.......my husband attended his interview on 17th September and this was for his 2nd Visa. We got the e-mail last Wednesday 2nd asking us to submit Passport for Visa issuance - 5 months & 15 days. He took his Passport to the Courier the next day and we received the e-mail yesterday to say that it had left the Embassy and was on it's way back to the Courier. I then tracked with the Courier and it is ready for collection from Monday. I understand the whole process is lengthy but it can prove to be very stressful!! To say we are overjoyed is an understatement as we fly to Vegas on Wednesday.

Hi K B

You take it to the Courier yourself. There is a link on the e-mail which shows you where the Courier's are based. You can send it by Registered Post but having read some of the comments on here, I think you are better to deliver your Passport in person and then you can track the process every step of the way, From receiving our e-mail regarding submitting Passport for Visa issuance to e-mail saying Passport was on way back to Courier was 10 days in total. The Embassy is stating on it's website that it is taking 11 calendar days for Visas to be issued but calendar days does include weekends.

Should remember this by now but when I send the passport is it just the passport and the printed page I need to send in. It does say other bits but I remember from last time I didn't need to send in a lot of the stuff they said. Just wondering if anyone has recently sent there's for issuance Charley
My husband went 17th September and received e-mail 2nd March (24 weeks) and this was his 2nd Visa. We are collecting from Courier on Monday!!!

Ah, you're in Thailand. The UK Consulate in London will likely not send your passport on to Thailand. However, if you want to risk being without your passport while you're in Asia, then yes - they can send it to your home address and you can have someone send it on to you.

Alternately, because I, personally, wouldn't ever want to be without my passport in a foreign country, you can simply delay getting the US visa in your passport until you get back home.

You won't hear anything at all until such time as you receive notice to submit your passport.
