Congratulations. But one question: are you able to receive the packet the day that the visa is approved (day of interview) or do you have to wait for them to send it in order to travel ?

I haven't seen where any beneficiary gets their visa in hand the day of the interview. There is usually always some type of wait even if only a couple days.

Congrats!!

No, he did not receive it the same day of the interview. He paid DOMEX the day of the interview and once CEAC status changed to issued he called DOMEX and they told him that they had the packet and it was delivered to him yesterday.

Thanks everyone!
