Submitting passport question

K1 fiancé visa, I am the US Citizen, and my fiancé is from Baghdad and his case was assigned to Ankara embassy. After a year of waiting for the DS-5535 we received the email that AP is completed and to renew medical and send passport. He flew from Baghdad to Ankara and did his medical this morning. I am sure it is not wise for him to wait in Turkey. Does he fly back and then ships his passport to the embassy? And this can be done with DHL I assume so he can have a tracking number. Also, it said to update the DS160 only if it is re-opened status. I log onto CEAC like I normally do, and I do not see any message about resubmitting the DS160. I want to make sure we are not missing anything. Thank you!

I would imagine most people hand around, not sure if they mail passports internationally.

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

What is so difficult is not knowing how long to wait. We filed a WOM so not sure if that helps in the issuance. 

Ask the consulate.  I believe they routinely handle cases from Iran and Iraq and they should recommend the best approach for you.
