That is a little abnormal, and so sorry you have to wait like that. My hubby got his passport the same time and along with his visa. I've only seen others, from France, who have gotten theirs a day or two after. A week seems longer than neccessary to me. Did you contact anyone? Sorry, once again.

thanks.  can i ask when did your husband get notification of shipping number and when did he get his passport back?  I email the document service and they told me nothing to do but wait.  my visa status was changed to "issued" two days after interview and it's been a week.  is it the courrier UPS or LA POSTE?  I live in Paris, it shouldn't take so long to get my passport back.

Yes, my husband lived in Paris, as well, and the embassy called the next day to tell him he could come pick up his visa and passport before they closed that day. Our case was expedited, but someone who did theirs in Paris with no expedition only took 3 days to get their passport. Their interview was on a Wednesday, the got their visa status of issued on Thursday, and their passport with visa on Friday. I don't know why it's taking so long. Maybe contact the embassy in Paris and see what is going on. Sorry yours is taking so long. Contact the embassy is my suggestion.
