    Default Tracking passport after visa's granted

    Hello,

    My in-laws got the visa issued today (May 2 nd) at Chennai consulate. They tried to collect it on the same day, which they could not. Later for curiosity sake, I checked their passport status, under Tracking passport menu, in the www.vfs-usa.co.in website. It reports as:

    " Your passport has not been handed over to VFS. Kindly contact our regional call centres or call our toll free no.18004 25 0025 for further queries.".

    I'm worried & apprehensive, about this new status. Hope they don't have to undergo any more complications, additionally in getting visa. I also hope that this status in their website is a regular message, before the VFS issues the passport. Please correct my understanding.

    Appreciate if you can share your experiences.

    Thanks,
    Palsdevi

    P.S: Their interview was very simple. My in-laws are farmers. In the interview, the consular officer, just asked only 2 questions.
    1. How many kids you have ?. Ans: 2
    2. Who is in USA ?. Ans: Daughter's family

    Checked the 2 folders of itemized documents and granted the the visa. Our current status is permanent residents.

    Dotn worry, most of the time these online messages are not correct.
    There are very slim chnaces of passport missing. If you do not receive the passport in next few days call VFS.

    Default Finally got it ....

    Thanks for all your responses.

    Just now I checked the VFS website and found out that the passport is ready to be collected from vfs. This is how it read:

    "Your passport can be collected in person at US visa application centre in Chennai between 1600-1700 hours.
    Kindly produce your HDFC fee receipt and interview appointment letter at the time of collecting your passport.
    If your passport is not collected by 1700 hrs, it will be automatically dispatched to you by courier. "

    Thanks for this website administrator and all the members who are helping others by replying to the queries and directing the friends to this website. Appreciate it very much.

    I sincerely followed this website guidelines from the beginning to the end in getting this visa.

    Thankfully,
    Palsdevi

    Thats good news.

    But were you able to collect the passport in the evening on the same day? Or was it sent to Blue Dart courier service?

    Thanks!
