Hello everyone,

After all this time on the 25th I finally had my interview at the London Embassy and Passed... :)

I was told I would get it back by the 1st of July... I am finding this a little hard to believe..

So I am wondering how long it has taken other applicants from England to get their passports back from the embassy..

Thank you people =) :dance:

I had my interview on the Friday and it got delivered on the following Thirsday but the Monday of that week was a bank holiday so it was actually the third working day after my interview that it came, They can be very quick.

Congrats

Stacey

Thank you ever so much Stacey, That has really helped.. What didn't help is the lovely lady that interviewed me said 'oohh I would pay for the same day delivery'.. So there I was waiting with my pink slip to hand it to the DX secure desk, asked the gentleman behind the counter if this was true.. He looked at me like I was crazy and just asked for my card and said right thats £14.50.. You may get it on the 1st or 2nd... Then shouted *next*

Ian's interview was the 15th, and the courier's first attempt at delivery was the 18th (a Friday). It was so quick, he didn't expect it and wasn't home. He called them and rescheduled for the following Monday. He also happened to not be home when they delivered it, but gave it to his mum without even asking for I.D.

Wow I really hope mine is that quick, I will just keep my fingers and toes crossed.. They lost most of our paperwork you see the first time around, and that's why I am hoping and praying my lovely K1 visa arrives in my passport. I'm hoping it doesn't go missing.. They never even asked for I.D.?? Wow that's one of the first things the DX courier is suppose to ask for.. I am glad everything went well

Thank you everyone for you congratulations, it has been a hard process and it is not over yet.. Thank you all

I know, right!?

"Here's a passport and a free pass to go live in a America. I trust you're the person this is intended for."

Edited to let you know that Ian is in Essex, so I don't know if his relative close proximity to London had anything to do with how quickly they were able to deliver the visa to him.

That doesn't fill me with confidence, I must admit I almost expect them to ask for finger prints again before handing it over.. Haha

Anything to do with America normally requires finger prints, :blink: ... Or some form of interrogation to prove I really do know and love my fiancée.. I will stop ranting now :blush:
