thank you all very much....

and just a little lesson that we learned about picking up the passport...

MAKE SURE you take COPIES of the VFS COURIER FEE RECEIPT (not just the checklist of submitted items), AND a copy of the INTERVIEW LETTER.

they took my wife's originals during the interview and forgot to return them...

She had to fax in a copy of her passport and birth certi. as she stood at the VFS asking for her passport.

They made an exception, but don't take any chances.

-good luck to all
