VISA IN HAND, APPROVED! Dublin Info...

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We FINALLY got our immigrant visa in the mail this morning! A wonderful Valentines gift!! We waited 8 months and 13 days since we sent in the petition to USCIS.

All Dublin filers...you WILL wait almost 2 weeks from your interview until your visa is issued and in hand. We read on the Embassy's website that it only took 2-3 days but ours took 13 days and the most recent other VJ Dublin filer took 13 days. So, be prepared to WAIT (again)!

We are off to the US tonight!

We mistakenly booked our flights before we had it in hand and ended up changing them. I recommend you wait until the postman hands you the envelope...tickets to the US are really cheap right now from Dublin anyway. We booked a same day flight for only 600 euro!!

Again, I wish someone had told us how long the wait realistically was after the interview. We thought something must be wrong since the embassy's web site says you should get it 2-3 days after the interview. Nope, you have to wait...probably for 2 weeks or so for name checks and various administrative processes. Good luck!

Wow that's a pretty good price for same-day booking! We've been thinking of getting the Aer Lingus Flexi-tickets but their website doesn't give any indication of price differences for those.
