prepare a letter addressed to the consular officer stating your request and a valid reason for that.

ask for visa pick up after the positive conclusion of your interview. if the consul didn't allow you for visa pick up, you can try for the last time at the releasing window, windows 37 or 38. ask the nice guys there and present your letter and wait for the result.

the release of your visa depends on your documents especially, your NSO docs.

hope this helps. :)

i stumble in one thread..i saw there that you're coordinating with SLEC if they have your packet 4..does this mean that you requested Packet 4 copy to claim in SLEC?

If so, you can mention this in your request for visa pick-up..hard time to locate your address, & even got a packet 4 copy in SLEC..then i can see you have strong points there for visa pick-up request..just be sure that you're approved in the interview then (politely) show to the CO the letter of request.

goodluck :thumbs:

what I did before..I called USEmbassy that I haven't receive my packet 4 (that time DHL had a hard time locating in our address) & i told them that i'm planning to take my medical in advance, so i want a copy of packet 4 from SLEC.

THe lady from USE told me that its fine & she arranged it for me.

After your call with USE, better to call SLEC as well..
