Received visa, no sealed envelope inside

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I received the visa today. It didn't say "do not open": I assumed my passport was in it and I would need it for the airport

 

I opened it and there isn't any other package inside, just my original documents that i gave in the interview. And my passport which  was located inside of the folded documents. Thereis a sticker in my passport with my cr1 visa information. I thought I needed a sealed envelope??

 

At the time of the interview i was told it was an electronic visa. Does that mean there is no package needed??

 

thanks for you help

some embassies use electronic now and no need for the packet if they have it electronically.

 

congrats!

THank you!! I was freaking out because I really thought I had to be careful not to open the wrong envelope, and was very very confused when I found my passport along with the originals.
