Recommended Posts

My husband had his interview today! APPROVED!!!! So happy! Can't wait for him to be home!

Does anyone know how long it will take for the CEAC website to change?

And what is the average time to receive the visa packet from the London Embassy?!

Congratulations and Happy Birthday!

10 working days is what they probably would have told you at the embassy - a lot of people get the package within a week, though.

CEAC status tends to update within about 48 hours. You're looking for it to change to "Issued".
