Thank you @Sm1smom
For No.2; Yes, you do get to retain the old passport only that they punch holes all over it. Basically, mutilate it so you don,t get to use it in any way.

Yes i am.
Hey @Britsimon. Based on the April VB, is AF region progressing as you had estimated?
It's just you @Afrikana and I over here... Where are all the others?
It's fine, yes.
@Britsimon Any reason why after a successful interview and Visa approval receive email from embassy asking one to Re-interview and come with National ID
When you say “visa approval” do you mean you were verbally told it was ok, not that a visa was issued?
There are further checks done after interview and occasionally something comes up even if an applicant was verbally told they are approved. Sounds like this is what happened in your case.
This specific request for another interview with ID is unusual though, would there be any discrepancy between your documents about your name, birth date etc, or any other reason for them to (apparently) want to confirm your identity?
Its happened to a friend. They were told Visa Approved. Given the Green paper and instructions on how to pay the Immigrant fee. They had also filled the DHL collection point. This was last week. Only to find an email asking them to go back to the embassy with their ID for a re-interview.
The embassy probably noticed some discrepancies in the information your friend provided, hence the request for them to return to the embassy. At least, there’s still some hope since they didn’t get outrightly denied based on whatever it is the embassy came across regarding them. So their only option is to show up as requested.
