Visa for my fiancee was approved today!

Just curious would picking up the visa be faster than home delivery?

I would like to thank everybody for the help and support. Special mention to Hank who have been consistently answering my repetitive questions patiently.

Congratz! My understanding is that you would have to ask during the interview if you want to return to pick it up. They generally prefer 2go, but will allow pickup if it's requested prior to leaving the interview with the US interviewer. That's what I've read here on VJ, anyway. Delivery normally doesn't take too long.

I do not believe the embassy allows you to pick up the visa from them directly but you can schedule to pick it up at an 2G0 location if you don't want it delivered to your home.

TRACK YOUR VISA/PASSPORT

Here is a link for requirements for receiving your passport with the visa, there are also options for tracking the status of your visa/passport is currently. You can also change delivery options.

2GO CUSTOMER SERVICE FOR CHECKING DELIVERY

2Go customer service hotline (+632) 5287-136 is available Monday to Friday 8:00 am to 7:00 pm and Saturday 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.

TRACK YOUR PASSPORT/VISA THROUGH 2GO
