CGI Federal Sight Question

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My wife had interview in Guangzhou on Sept. 28 visa was issued on their site on Sept 29th. I have been watching the CGI web site and the last few days it says ....Your Passport has been returned to Post ...we chose to have it delivered to her home city at a CITI bank that was available on the CGI web site. My wife went to the bank but they don't have it. Has anybody else had this message? Does anyone know what this means? Its been 9 days since the visa was issued and released to CGI.

Their tracking sucks, as does their entire site. That message just means it's in transit to the selected return location.

My wife's passport took an additional 2 weeks to really be delivered. I suggest calling every few days to confirm it's really there before making a trip there.

Please bear in mind that China just underwent a major holiday. While the Embassy was closed from October 1st through the 5th, many local post offices were closed through the 7th-9th. You should see better tracking responses in the next couple days.

My wife talked to the manager today at the Citi bank in her city where it was to be delivered. He said that it was sent back to the consulate because there was a tear in the package and they didn't want her to have problems coming into US at the immigration counter at the airport. He says should take another 10 days to get back. Makes me a little nervous that they sent it back.
