Recommended Posts

How have you guys found out if/when the consulate received your petition. I am sure they have mine by now (it was sent the 16th) but I dont know how to check for sure. Did you guys call the embassy or DOS? Or did you find out by some other means?

Thanks,

You can call DOS.

I think the phone number is 202 663 1225. There is an automated system that made sense at the time (last June). I think you punch 1, then 0, and you will get a human being who can answer your questions. You'll need your USCIS receipt number of, preferably, your DOS case number.

We found out when our case number appeared on the Moscow Embassy website and secondly when the packet arrived from the embassy. If either occur you can be sure they got your case.

Same here. It seems like this is the "old school" way of doing it now. Nowadays everyone wants daily updates and electronic notifications of anytime anything happens. Man, what did we ever do before the RFE trick?

Ensure your beneficiary makes and brings with them to the States a copy of the DS-3025 (vaccination form)

If the government is going to force me to exercise my "right" to health care, then they better start requiring people to exercise their Right to Bear Arms. - "Where's my public option rifle?"
