Sending Passport Back to Embassy - DX Question

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all!


My husband had his medical on November 7, and his interview on November 13.  At his medical, they found a shadow on his x-ray, so he had to go through the TB test 😥, but we are at the 7th week after the test now, so hoping that is cleared in the next couple of days.  He passed the interview on the 13th and he asked for his passport back since it was going to be a 6-8 week wait.  They gave instructions on how to send the passport back to the Embassy and all was well.  Last Friday he sent his passport back to the Embassy via the DX Delivery in Edinburgh, and today it says "Your package is due to be or has been returned.  Please contact your service provider."  Alarmed at this, he called the DX office and they first told him it had been returned to the DX office and they were re-sending it to the Embassy, and then he called back about an hour later and another woman told him it was at the Embassy since yesterday.  She said "It has been returned, as in it has been returned to the Embassy" This wording seems off to me.  Has anyone else experienced this when returning a document to the US Embassy in London?  We just want to make sure it is at the Embassy ready for medical approval!  He contacted the Embassy via the email link, but no answer yet.


Any help is appreciated, we are in the final stages and this is the worst part!!

I think it's at the embassy.


Have you checked up on the TB concern? What did the TB test reveal?

Yes we finally confirmed with someone else at DX that it is at the Embassy, phew!


We haven't heard back yet from the medical - they said 6-8 weeks and we just entered the 7th week.  Just for peace of mind back in November he got the TB blood test on the side and it was negative, and the smear test for TB was negative, so we're hoping everything is fine and it was just an (annoying) delay of 8 weeks.  But once the medical comes back, if it's negative, he should be in the US soon after since everything else is approved!
