    When i signed with OGP I had to pay as soon as I passed Nclex but the money wasnt sent for months. I believe it was around 5 months later. Glad you dont have to pay up straight away now as it gives you a bit more time to save up lol. When you are paying for 4 it works out ++++$'s

    Kay Not on that they waited months after paying to send the money. Hopefully lawyer is making payments as soon as she gets the request as hospital is paying it for me and we have already paid her for Danny

    i was asked to send the money just after the nclex too which was june last year, i actually paid it in november but the visa bill wasnt paid until may 2006
    they really hassled me for the money
    i can understand them wanting everything in place, but having the money 10 months in advance was pushing it lol

    I know imagine the interest that could have be earn't I think thye may have been burnt in the past where nurses havent raised the money when needed so they probably need it in place to ensure it is paid.

    You know I had to send more money just before my interview because the US embassy increased the cost-I was most put out

    Here goes....although it does depend on how good your company is, how long paperwork sits on their desks before it goes elsewhere, and how long it takes to get from you to London to USA:

    Signed up March 04 (delays with the charming CES people at CGFNS meant that we didn't sit NCLEX until...)
    Sat NCLEX April 05
    I140 process began in Aug 05
    I140 through on 1st March 06
    Fee bills requested April 06 - paid straight away and eventually sorted by July 06 due to family details being not supplied by recruitment company
    Packet 3 got to me 2nd Aug 06
    Packet 3 returned by courier to USA office in 2 days (well worth 15 we spent as it missed out London office and avoided a further 2 week delay).
    Packet 3 arrived at NVC on 11th August. Told that there is a 6 to 8 week turn around, although hoping that it'll be quicker.

    It's been a disaster from start to nearly finish.

    Cheers

    it takes that long for it all to go through that the fees have usually increased by the time you get to the interview!!!

    OG it should be quicker than 6-8 weeks, mine took 3 so hopefully....

    I phoned the NVC, they replied that our case was closed yesterday. I've waited after my atty. has submitted my DS230 last 24th July. I don't know if I will be affected by the "retrogression". Some are saying, those case closed files submitted to London will get interview schedules by next year. Hope this is not true. Is there anybody here with the same boat?
