Hi all

Please help!

I am trying to find out when I will recieve my visa, as the DX secure courier cant tell me, they said it may be up to another 2 weeks wait and I was hoping on flying out on Aug 21st!!!

I had my interview on July 26th, but had the incorrect birth certificate for k1 visa. So, I had to get it and then courier it to London with my passport and then wait for it to be returned to me. The last I heard was Wednesday last week (4th august) when I was told the embassy had recieved it that morning.

I really need a phone number to contact someone at the embassy to find out, because I really need to know in order to rearrrange my flights etc (and for my sanity...)

Any info greatly appreciated, thanks :)

Call the rather expensive line at 02074-99-9000. It's £1.20/min. Sorry, that's the only thing I know of. Once it's issued it usually takes a day or two for the courier to get it to you.

Hi there,

Well i'm having the same issue as you as to when will i get my passport back. I did the same thing as you did by calling DX & that was a waste of time as they can't help you until the receive the passport from the embassy.. I ended up called the rather expensive line to find out what's happening. My passport has been transferred over which could either be good news or it could be denied.. But i was told i would have my passport back within 5-7 working days which today is now the 6th day. But the woman told me that it takes about 5-10 working days if i don't get my passport by thursday or fri then i have to call them back & they will give me a number to call them direct..

Not sure if that will help you any or not..

We first met online 2004, but things started to get serious in Dec 2007. Made my first visit to the USA in march 2008 for 2 weeks. Then returned again in Aug 2008 for 3 months.. Then i came back to the UK for 5 months to return back to the USA April 2009 for another 3months.
