"Please be advised that we have concluded processing the file and wish to convoke applicant and daughter for final review and possible visa issuance September 30, 2015, at 8:30 am. Documents required:

Does anyone know if both my wife and daughter need to go, or if just my wife is enough?

I'm at work right now, and my vision is blurry with tears of joy.

What fantastic news! I am sure you must be very overcome with emotion.

I would think your wife would be able to bring your daughters passport and pictures. Some people just courier them in so I don't see it as an issue.

CONGRATULATIONS - God Bless. :-* :-*

I hope the Embassy of Manila would also issue visas before the end of this month. A lot of February applicants like me are still waiting.

Does that mean they get an interview? Or is this some kind of normal procedure with Cuban VO?

Interview is different/separate. I don't actually know what this part entails, but basically they show up with their passport and the visa is issued.

Hello,

Checked my application status after a couple of months.

Permanent Residence Application Status: In Process

I don't remember if I had seen this status before. Can anyone tell me what does this mean? Is "In Process" a reason to rejoice? I, hwever, don't see much activity happening on NDVO for candidates in 2015.

Help will be appreciated.

Thanks!

Some people are saying that for those who applied earlier in the year it means they are close to making a decision...however, for those who applied in May, June onwards, it seems that this status is being assigned to them as soon as their application reaches the outbound VO.

In my opinion, in process just means they have your application, might have opened it or at least logged it...and at some point will begin (or have begun) the various background checks...which can take some time (hence the posted processing times)....

If you want to find out what stage the processing is in, you could order GCMS / CAIPS notes...some say not to bother, some order them within a couple of months of their application being transferred.

After in process, wait for the passport request from your visa office. If everything is fine with your application, no additional documents needed then expect a Decision Made and eventually the voh..
