Ex Visas Finally Received

  1. finally we got visas early this morning!.. wheww! after 5 days of hearthrobbing wait from sms courier and embassy's decision. thanks to my very quick & supportive employer and agency (we worked jointly) who contacted consulate and took immediate action regarding my unconditional job offer, faxed it to us embassy & finally done within 5 days... it took us a total of 16 months processing from my pd!

    to give you my time line:

    feb 2005 -nclex taken in london
    jun 2005 -ielts taken

    jul 2005 -i-140 started calif service center (p.d.)
    jan 2006 -i-140 transfered to tx due to backlog
    apr 2006 -i-140 approved (sooo long wait)
    jun 2006 -fees paid, ds230-1 & forwarded to nvc
    jul 28 -nvc received our docs, fees, etc
    aug 23 -nvc approved / documentarily qualified
    aug 29 -nvc forwarded to us consulate
    oct 19 -received pkt-4
    oct 25 -medicals done w/ family
    nov 24 -interviewed in london w/ family, x-ray given
    nov 29 -all ex visas received w/ a sealed envelop

    i am so happy to say that i was one of the lucky nurses who got a share of the last slices of the remaining 50k sched a visas... million thanks for this forum and members, i've learned a lot... those who are still waiting on the process, bear in mind us badly needs nurses, i only feel that visa nos will be available sooner or later but not so long.
