    Any sign of your pkt 4 yet - have you had any contact from the embassy at all. We are being to get worried all this waiting is stressful.
    hmmm update on the wacky workings of the embassy
    no sign of pkt 4 today so i decided to ring the embassy in London....
    so after 7 minutes on the phone at 1.20 per hour i get told that they are processing files with a priority date of May 2002!!, my priority date is September 2005!!!!


    so what the heck does that mean???
    i asked the lady on the telephone, told her i had recieved email saying interview would be in October, pkt 4 expected in September, she said to email the same address to verify that the previous email was correct!!!
    so now i am bricking it basically because i dont know what the hell is going on

    dont you just love the turmoil we have put ourselves under to get to the usa.
    im sorry if this news upsets some of you that are waiting, im not moaning, just letting you all know what has happened to me
    if i find anything else out i will let you know

    Hi Claire

    I am pretty confident you will still be out in the USA by Xmas.....they dont seem to know what they are doing there and love to throw a spanner in the works....I remember myself getting in a tiswas becuase I was misinfomred and one email said "due to unfortunate circumstances".....I thought I would never get here....I think because you are so close and yet so far too it is difficult for you all......dont apologise either :wink2:

    Thinking of you Claire - reckon we'll all be partying on your behalf when we see your post telling us it's arrived!!

    Can't quite believe what the Embassy said - wonder if that was different Visa's or those for people whom retrogression has affected etc etc etc ???
    Perhaps it's major reverse psychology - lets tell her it will be years, then send it out tomorrow, she'll think we're ultra efficient!!

    Good luck - please let us know when it arrives.

    i think you are right, it was the wrong visa

    She may have meant for people not under Schedule A? That date would sound about right for regular processing.

    They also told me the same, I have to wait till my PD is current, although mine was sent to London since last month...It simply says RETROGRESSION starts and no VISA nos. are available worldwide. We will be included under EB's category... But let's still hope for the best... America still needs nurses very badly, I don't think it will take time like the previous year's retrogression...

    if i have to wait until my priority date is current, why have i recieved an email telling me pkt 4 will be september then
