How long for Issued passport to go from 'no status' to 'origination scan' to 'ready for pick up'?

Hi All,

 

Can anyone tell me how long your wait was from when the CEAC site showed your visa as ISSUED to ustraveldocs showing the passport status as 'origination scan' then 'ready to pick up'?

 

From the site for Algeria:  http://www.ustraveldocs.com/dz/dz-niv-passporttrack.asp, it says:

"If your status shows "origination scan", it means your passport has left the U.S. Embassy and is transit to the delivery location you have chosen. It is however not available yet.  Only when the status shows "ready for pick up", it means you can go to the VFS Global Document Collection Center you have chosen to pick up your passport."

 

Our CEAC went to ISSUED on 1/12/17.  But as of today 1/18/17, there is no status update for the passport (meaning the embassy has not delivered it to the courier).  The courier's office is now closed for the day, so basically we are going into the 7th day, after issuance, without a passport status update.  My fiance chose to pick up the passport in Algiers, so the courier doesn't even have to deliver it.  

 

We just want to know if can happen this way, that the embassy sits on an issued passport for a week before event sending it to the courier.

 

Thank you!

Hello ... as soon as the embassy deliver the passport to vfs you will receive an email from usyraveldocs telling they collected the passport and it is ready for pick up. Ceac website will not show anything new after issued. Just wait for the email hopefully it come soon. 

Good luck !

Just a note that we finally got the visa/passport back!  It took 10 days, and the US Embassy never updated the status on ustraveldocs that it was being sent to the courier.  My fiance did write the courier (VFS Global) for a second time on Sunday, and they finally replied that they had the passport.  Moments later, the status was changed from 'no status' to 'ready for pickup'.  My fiance was able to travel to Algiers and get it, today.  

 

Today marks 56 days of waiting to pick up the visa/passport after written approval at the interview, when they told us it would take 10-15 days.  Incredible!  But we are thankful to finally have the visa in hand!!!!!!!!!!

Congratulations!! I'm happy for you. This visa application process is very trying!

may I ask what you mean when you say it took 56 days? That's from the date of the interview?

My fiancé was missing his medical and immunizations, which he got and deleivered all appropriate documentation to the consulate about two weeks ago. I only just now looked on CEAC for an update and it says issued. Are you saying that from the first day you saw your fiancé's say issued, it took 10 working days?

The date on CEAC for case created is one week past the date my fiancé dropped off his medical documents. I'm assuming it'll be 10 working days from that date?

It's so difficult to get real information. It really is best when people like you share personal experiences. Thank you so much!!

Hi BadriLuvJasmin,

 

Thanks so much!  It is a trying process, and it's hard to know how long anything really takes, because each case is different.  From the date the changed the status to issued on the CEAC site, it took 10 calendar days (which includes Friday and Saturday) before the passport was ready to pick up.  The embassy didn't update the tracker on ustraveldocs when they sent it to the courier (VFS Global).  My fiance wrote VFS on on Sunday and they wrote back, finally, with an email that said that the embassy had delivered the passport; and a few minutes later the ustraveldocs site showed 'ready for pickup'.  He then traveled to Algiers to pick it up the next day.  The 56 days of waiting was the total time from when he was approved at interview until he picked it up (with help to get them to finally issue it, from our congressman's office).  

 

Hopefully you will not have a wait like this, but it's hard to know.  You should have it within 10 business days.  Some people have gotten theirs sooner.  Keep contacting VFS Global if you have questions about it, though; the embassy should deliver it to them, after they issue it.  Good luck!!!
