Frustrated

So we passed our interview on April 16th. We didn't ask for Visa pick up. Still a week and a half later there was still no Visa so I called the embassy last Friday. They said she had to redo her finger scanning. The thing is they never told us and they knew since the Monday before...Now we have to wait until tomorrow to do the finger scanning again. I hope they will allow us to pick up the visa on Wednesday cause our plane leaves on Thursday :( I'm just angry that they didn't even bother to call us to let us know of the problem. Everyone pray that everything works out and we leave to the USA on the same plane. Shes doing her CFO right now.

Tip for everyone. Call everyday to check the status of your visa. If there is a problem they sure as hell wont tell you.

i m sorry ericc that they didnt inform you.grrrr youre right everyone should follow up their status everyday especially if u dont get your visa yet in 3-5 days and the fact that she wasnt given any white slip on her interview day. they should allow you for visa pick up, show them your tickets.

ill include you in my prayers.

Hi EricC, good thing you called the embassy, if not you could of been waiting with nothing. What prompted them to have a repeat finger scanning? That's negligence on their part not informing you. Anyways, just be thankful you'll be having the visa.

Congratulations on to a new couple. (F)

We are frustrated too :( I was interviewed April 22, the consul said that everything was good but they will need to verify my NSO docs. We called the USEM today, monday to check the status of our case. It's frustrating to know that the embassy call center agent told us that there's no record that they received those documents from me..what is that suppose to mean then? :( so unreliable... NSO told us that doc verification is confidential we must ask our inquiries at the embassy :( now we are thinking to do next...

Tip for everyone. Call everyday to check the status of your visa. If there is a problem they sure as hell wont tell you.

I SAW YOU GUYS TODAY WHEN I HAD MY INTERVIEW.... I WAS WEARING WHITE JACKET....

GOOD LUCK I HOPE YOU GET YOUR VISA SOON SO YOU COULD LEAVE ON THURSDAY!!! MORE POWER TO YOU BOTH...

I'm so sorry to hear about the finger scanning error. I'm getting a little worried now since reading your post. You see, I had my interview today and visa approved. My worry is during finger scanning (finger scanner was cranky this Vietnamese/Korean woman), it took me a while to have my fingers scanned. Cranky woman in charge! I asked her if I need to repeat my right hand, she said "never mind." So now, I am worried. :angry: If there was an error in the first place, they shoud have told you right then and there! It's their responsibility, D'oh!
