Hi everyone.

I had my interview last wednesday and today my CEAC status changed from AP to Issued. I was wondering if anyone knew how long from being issued are you sent an email from the courier?

Thank you!

It would depend on your country and the local office queue. Some of them are as early as 3 days, others have been seen to be 14 days. Check in the section for your embassy info.

It always varies, but a good chance for delivery by Thursday/ Friday. Odd things can happen so don't book a weekend flight yet.

I am waiting for my status to change from Tuesday last week. When did you notice the CEAC website change?

Since my interview I have been checking my status every day and it's being going like this (if it's any help):

15th Oct (interview day): Ready

16th Oct: Ready

17th Oct: Ready

20th Oct: Administrative Processing

Today: Administrative Processing this morning and when I checked again at 1pm it had changed to issued.

But from all the date changes on CEAC it seems they looked at/handled my case in some way every day.

I hope you get some good news soon. It must be horrible when you think you're so close and something else happens to keep you waiting.

Thank you for the information.

My interview was on the 6th but didn't get approved until the 9th and had to resubmit my passport which the embassy received on the 14th. I am currently still on 'Ready' although I was in Administrative Processing from the 6th until the 9th inclusive and just waiting for it to be issued.

Best regards

Rich

Brilliant! Hope it doesn't take too long to get to you now. I'm still on issued.

Do you know if the London Embassy only sends out their couriers on certain days of the week?

I have no idea.

DX Couriers calls in everyday from what I can gather so it doesn't make sense if the embassy is hanging on to your visa??? Once it's issued, there is no further processing and it's just matter of DX collecting the visa from the embassy and delivering it back to you.

Have you spoken to DX or the embassy?
