so my wife's case was completed with NVC and interview has been scheduled with islamabad embassy on march 15th.

im trying to book her plane tickets ahead of time, i have heard from a few people that they take you passport on the day of the interview and send it back to your house with the visa?

is this true? and if it is when will she get her passport and visa documents from embassy?

thanks in advance.

Hello,

I understand that if approved, it takes about 4 to 6 days. My wife will go to interveiw on Feb 17. We will know if she get approval and time to get passport back.

Bad idea to book tickets ahead. I (a female) went in for my interview in October and I was put on AP and they had returned my passport to me. I heard from the embassy after 2 (two) months and at that point they asked me to send in my passport which I did through courier and then once it was stamped they sent it back through courier. If you have tons of money and can risk losing an airline ticket then feel free to book a flight now but if you want to make sure you don't lose your money, wait till she gets her interview done. It can go many ways so wait and then once she is done with her interview and depending on the outcome of it, you can go ahead and make travel plans.
