  1. Congratulations We got an interview letter one week after getting DQed but 2/3 weeks does seem pretty accurate.
  2. Thank you It's near Balard, here's the link: https://www.mbefrance.fr/fr/envoi/paris_15/0001?utm_source=Google&utm_medium=GMB He lives in Paris too and he originally picked the at home delivery option but when he called last week they said the point relais is quicker because they get the passport the same day as they're shipped so it save 1-3 days depending on where you live.
  3. His passport was available for pickup at the point relais today. He's leaving tomorrow!
  4. Yes the service is free! I think 17 days should be enough but you never know. They told him 10 days since it was electronic but we've passed the 10 day mark. I'll let you know once he actually gets his passport at the point relais!
  5. So we booked his ticket using miles with Air France so we were able to exchange it pretty easily. He's also called the embassy several times (their service is outsourced so not always super reliable) and they recommended he change his pickup location to the point relais since it gets dropped off there the day the passports are shipped to home addresses. I don't know if anyone else is in this situation where we want him to leave as quickly as possible, but the point relais (Mail Boxes Etc rue Felix Faure) has been very helpful. He called the "point relais" and they said they go and pick up the passports at the embassy in the morning and have them available for pick-up staring 5pm.
  6. Hey! My husband's visa was issued today (interview was on November 6) but he won't receive to for another 2-5 business days. The Paris embassy is very slow in issuing and sending visas compared to other ones! Hope this part of the process will be quicker for the rest of you
  7. Hi! My husband's interview was 2 days ago at the Paris embassy and he was told he was approved. It still says "ready" on the CEAC website. Has anyone else encountered this problem? Thanks
  8. We’re hoping he’ll leave right a day or two after he gets his passport (we booked the ticket today with miles so it can be more easily exchanged) so we’re hoping it will be issued soon! I’ll update the visa received date on my timeline so you can also get an idea of how quick the turnover is.
  9. Fingers crossed for your documents to be reviewed soon!
  10. Thank you! Those three documents (birth/wedding/police certificates) were less than 3 months but we didn't need translations. For your husband, the US citizen, you just need a photocopy of his passport or of his birth certificate (US birth certificates aren't dated the way they are in France). Hope it helps!
  11. He was asked how we met, when he had been to the United States, his relationship with my father (who is the joint sponsor) and for pictures of our wedding. They took all the originals of our french mariage certificate, his birth certificate and his police certificate. The passport will be mailed via post service and you don't need to prove a self-addressed envelope. Let me know if you have any other questions
  12. My husband's interview yesterday went well and only lasted about 15 minutes. The woman said probably 10 days to get his passport back since his case is electronic. The CEAC status still only says "ready" and not "administrative processing" or "issued." Hope this helps!
  13. Hey! My husband just got an interview scheduled at the Paris embassy for November 6. The website says he can go and get his passport and visa himself after the interview when it's ready (instead of having sent). Has anyone done this before? If so, about how long after the interview is the passport ready? Thanks!
