Thanks Clever Octopus. Any idea as to the rationale for this policy?
Iím ironically hoping to NOT hear anything for several days as a quick turnaround would suggest a refusal and that the passports were lost.
It is apparently not UPS policy to have repeated delivery attempts, so I wonder about that. The package was delivered to the mailroom, and not directly to VFS, so it would have been a mailroom worker who refused the package. Fingers crossed the UPS driver knows what he/she was doing with this, and was making things right. I can only hope.
I notice the processing times havenít been updated since May, so they might not be valid. I wonder what percentage of short term visas processed at the New York Hub are priority? I would imagine higher than average as quite a few would be paid for by businesses for their employees and the money is small in the scheme of things. I know my company flies everyone business class to Europe, and tickets can cost as much as $10K each.
