I really wish they would just tell me if my medicals are cleared. I'm not worried about the rest. I would be able to sit back and wait for the grant until they were ready to send it. C'est la vie.

Just when I was starting to get anxious about not getting the acknowledgement email! Husband received his today! CO is RM!

The email seemed like a generic acknowledgement email. It did include his HAP for his medicals. Which is all he has left to do. Will he need to bring anything to the medical with him aside from the forms they indicated, or have to go online to do anything prior to the medical?

I don't *think* he has to use the new online system for medicals - you might want to check into that just in case, though. It's not something I've seen so I don't know anything about it yet.

Typically you bring the two forms, passport, and two passport-sized photos. There's a list on one of the relevant forms of what you should bring with you, and the doctor's office should also mention anything else you need to bring.

I only started reading posts here last week, when my wait for a s/c 300 became unbearable. Well, my application was approved today. Woo hoo!!! Talk about a heavy weight lifted off my shoulders. Unfortunately, I was at work and couldn't do my victory moonwalking dance. lol.

I applied at the Washington DC office in April and wedding is in Dec. RM was my CO and in my opinion, she was super helpful (responding promptly to all of my 'many' inquiries).

Wanna give a big shout out to college girl whose posts always encouraged me. God bless you and I hope you get your approval soon (I think we had similar timelines- can't believe I am using past tense now). Now, I gotta book a ticket.

God bless and good luck y'all!

OMG, superexcited - we not only have similar timelines but the same CO - hoping this means mine will be soon! Congrats on your grant!!!!

Oh, can you tell me which day in April you applied? Both for my own reference, and because I'd like to add you to the granted list.

Hello college girl, my application was received at the embassy April 16. Medicals was sent by panel doctor end of may and I mailed police check (from 2 countries) early June. I waited until September before making any inquiries. RM requested some additional documentation in Oct, to which I emailed scanned copies and later sent hard copies. I asked her whether to go ahead with a tourist visa application (since I can only lodge a paper application - I am a non-US citizen- and the last time I applied, it took 4 weeks). She never made reference to my request but said she will get back to me "shortly". Ha, I hated that word...shortly can mean anything. I refreshed my email 1million times per day (even at night when it's so obvious the embassy is closed)...) .

Our wedding is in our home country and EVERYONE has bought their tickets except me. I needed to get my visa approved so I can travel to Australia to validate my visa before we travel home for our traditional wedding ceremony.

I am so glad the wait is over and I can now make concrete travel plans.

I really hope you get your approval soon. You sound like a wonderful person with a beautiful soul.

Aw, that is so sweet! Thank you. It's all appearances, I assure you.

The embassy has my application as lodged April 25 (despite the fact they signed for it 4/18... anyway). I am going to really try to tamp down my hopes because my medical issues could make it take longer (though it SHOULD be back from being referred at this point, so shouldn't delay things unless they make me go through the waiver process). I'm going to try really hard not to think it might come through in the next week... it'll be hard, though!

Thanks for the best wishes, and congrats again - you have all my best wishes for a long, healthy life and a happy marriage.
