Passport is ready for pickup-Nigeria

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My uncle is driving me nuts. I live in the US. My cousin filed for an IR-5 for him. He lives in Abuja. Went to Lagos for the interview and got approved. They told him his Visa will be ready in 10 days. He flew back to Lagos. We tracked the CEAC website and it went from Administrative Processing to Issued within 24 hours then he gets the following email:

 

Your document(s) have been collected from the US Embassy/Consulate

The passport number being returned is xxxxxx

You have chosen to have your documents delivered to the following location: 

 

*I purposely didn't include the location. Any way I tracked his passport on the UStraveldoc site and it says "your passport is ready." So I've told him to fly back to Lagos to get it but he is hesitant because he said they will send both an email and a SMS text. He never got a text. And they have actually sent the aforementioned email twice so far!!! He is also hesitant because the aforementioned email does not expressly state "come and collect your passport."

 

So please to anyone that has gone thru this does the aforementioned email mean he can go pick up his passport? I also failed to mention that he doesn't want any of us contacting the consolate or traveldoc because he is PARANOID!!! What to do? I'm just afraid that they will send his passport back to the consulate after 10 days and that will create more issues!!

If he received the said e-mail then i will advise him to go the pick up address for his passport..

They don't usually text, it's just the e-mail..

@user555 yes that is what I read. But I'm just wondering why the email does not expressly say something like, your passport is ready to be picked up...come with your government ID, appointment letter, etc....You know what I am. I'm just wondering if this is the email that others have received to notify them that their passport is ready. Thanks again for your response.

Is the same email.. once the passport is delivered to the dhl pick up office picked by the applicant, the email will be send to the applicant, then receiver must go to the dhl office with pick up slip given at the embassy after approval and other means of identification for collection
