I sent my passport and all other papers to US Department of State (in St. Louis, MO) on March 15th. It is now more than 6 weeks. Has anyone applied around that time? Have you get your passport stamped?

One more question - does Dept. of State send any receipt once they receive our application? (I don\'t think so; but just checking)

No Title

I\'ve sent my passport March 18 by Express mail, they received March 20.There was no receipt. I don\'t believe it can be in 6 weeks. Lets allow 8 week for everything to be OK.

Revalidation Documents

My I-94 expired in December 2001. However, I have extended my H1. I am in the process of revalidating my visa. I want to know whether I have to submit the original I-797 or a photocopy will do. If I have to submit the original, do I have to submit the entire form or just the bottom part? If anybody can share their experience, I would appreciate it. Does the same thing apply to the I-797 for my wife too?

I forgot to mention that I will be mailing it to the State Dept.
