How long to receive passport back after B2 interview?

Posted (edited)

My fiancee's brother and mother are interviewing in early October for their B2 visas to come stateside for our wedding.

 

However my future brother in law lives and works in Hong Kong. He is flying to the Philippines for the visa interview, and wants to return to HKG as soon as possible. I know he could interview in Hong Kong, but it's going to be far easier for my future mother in law if he's with her.

 

What is the timeline for him to get his passport back? Can anything be done to expedite the return of his passport, assuming he is approved for his visa?

Week or so, does vary.

 

No

You may want to contact the Non-Immigrant Visa Unit to inquire on that.   

 

 

They were not told "approved or denied" at the interview?

They interview in a month or so.

My oops.   Still there is no way of knowing how long to receive the passport back.    Calling the embassy won't get you any answers either I will bet that.

 

If worried about getting the passport back in time, best move is apply in Hong Kong

I received mine two days after the interview. This was last June.

 

I don't think it is possible to expedite the process but when I was at the U.S. Embassy, those who were approved, myself included, were told that the turnaround time was five days.

You did a tourist visa?

Yes, I did.

 

That is cool.   Tourist visas seem so hard to get from USEM
