FRANKFURT - How long did you wait before Packet 3? (merged)

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I'm not sure if this is the proper place to post this, but here goes. I checked CEAC status on Friday, the 20th, and it showed "Ready." My fiance still hasn't received anything although the status now shows that the case was last updated yesterday, the 24th. I'm just curious to know how long others waited from the time their case displayed as "ready" until receiving Packet 3. Since I have no idea if the time we have been waiting is abnormal, this would be super helpful! We were told by NVC that my fiancé will receive an email - is that what we should be expecting?

Thanks so much.

Also, as a bonus question, did anyone submit the DS-160 before receiving packet 3? We were wondering if that was an okay thing to do or not...

The email is "packet 3". My then-fiancee did not submit the DS-160 before receiving the email, IIRC.
