I have a question about your latest posting on the UK visitor's visa. You mentioned that one has to wait one-two weeks for the confirmation form a Consulate. Which Consulate did you have in mind?
As I wrote in the same posting, my previous UK visa application was very smooth at the Los Angeles Consulate. I applied in mid October, 2008. They sent the email confirmation next day after receiving the application. I got the visa three days later.
Earlier this week, I applied for a new visa. So far, I have not received an email confirmation. Does it mean that the LA Consulate now also has a backlog?
Your thoughts would be appreciated.
