AP over!

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

After 43 days of AP I received a call today to come and drop off my passport Monday of next week at the consulate. I do think the lady on the phone got quite sick of me saying thank you by the end of it, my hands are also still a bit shaky.

I just want to thank everyone on these forums for the many supportive words you all post regarding your various stages of AP. I have been a silent sufferer, only reading what other people post but the many encouraging stories people have shared here have given me strength to endure the last 6 weeks while I agonizingly waited to have this process resolve itself. I know that for many a mere 6 weeks is but a blip and that my struggles pale in comparison to what some others are going through, I cannot imagine how this process would have affected me had it gone on for many months, or even years.

To everyone else still in AP, I wish you all the absolute best in this incredibly difficult and challenging journey. I hope that for all of you it also ends soon, and that you all may soon be reunited with your loved ones.

Every day I check our emails hoping for news like this. Congratulations! Although you are a different process and different embassy, it gives me hope that ours will be resolved soon as well.

In my complete flabbergasted state I also forgot to ask if I needed to bring anything else with me on Monday, I will most likely call first thing in the morning to ask that as I would hate to have this process be delayed any longer because I neglected to make sure I had some piece of paper or something else with me.

To everyone still in AP I do hope that it resolves itself soon. It is a very difficult burden to bear.

Also, I was so taken back that I forgot to ask whether this meant my visa was approved. Has anyone ever been in a situation where his/her passport was requested for drop off and a visa was not placed in the passport and promptly returned to the beneficiary via mail and/or courier service? Of course I will ask via phone first thing Monday morning, as well as ask if I should bring any other documents with me, but just throwing this out there to the VJ community and asking if anyone has any feedback.

I mean I cannot imagine that they would call me and ask me to drop off my passport if they were not going to put a visa in it for travel, however at this point I have learned that it is better to not assume anything (it tends to make an #### of u & me)...
