Hi

Wondering if anyone can give me some details please.

My girlfrend had her interview on 11th April & we still haven't heard anything. I know they said it can take upto 6 months but just wondering if anyone who had an interview in April or near abouts has heard any news back yet. Or what the waiting time is like. It's torture waiting for the email haha.

Sorry if these questions have already been asked.

Thank you in advance

Faye

There's nothing much you can do at this stage when it's only been 4 months since the interview and that is still very much within the normal timescale. Try not to obsess about the email. Just forget about it and wait patiently for the moment.

thank you for the reply I appreciate that. I booked a surprise trip for her to Florida in November so trying to wait patiently is not good haha. I didn't realise they took this long so my fault entirely. Should have checked.

Thanks again

Hopefully things will work out OK for you. Good luck and please come back to update the thread and let us know the eventual outcome as your experience will be useful for other applicants in a similar situation.

Just to update everyone on this thread I received my confirmation email for courier yesterday from the embassy on August 31st. My appointment was April 5th, so just under 5 months from appointment to receiving the email

My previous experience was similar, as was my partner's. This is one of the more consistent areas of this process!!!

Congratulations on finally getting sorted. I still abide by the advice of never booking anything until the visa is in hand.
Hi both,

Thanks for this info it's really useful.

I recently received the email and dropped my passport off at the courier this week to be sent back to the US consulate.
Would you receive another email once this passport has been sent back for delivery to me, and would they deliver back to the courier DX office I dropped off at, or to your home address? Also is there any way of tracking this?

Many thanks in advance

I'm not sure if there's any way to track the return of your passport, other than possibly watching to see if the visa status changes to "Issued". You will receive an email when it is ready for collection though. This will be from the same DX depot that you used to deposit the documents originally.

My visa appointment was held in London on April 13th and I received my email to send my passport on September 7th (circa 5 months). I will update this thread on the visa length once received.

That's great news. We still haven't heard about my partners yet. Hopefully they haven't lost it as her interview was the 11th April. It's annoying as she has already had one in 2010 so was hoping it would come in quicker haha.

Fingers crossed it comes this week if you have got yours already.

Thank you for the update.

Hey guys,

Havent been around for a loooong time but you were all super helpful previously.

Just a quick one, previously approved for a one year visa with waiver of ineligibility due to cimt 10+years ago.... trip went fantastic

applied again when I got home 2 years ago and same deal but approved for a 5 year visa!!!! We are now heading over this year, the visa doesn’t expire until 2021, so I’m all good to travel yeah? I don’t need to take any other documents to the airport do I?

i just over think things and would hate to mess it up!

thanks guys
Jay

You don't need anything else. Just your passport and visa.
