I was looking at my blog stats (we all like to do that, don’t deny it :D!) and noticed that one of the search engine terms that led some viewers to my blog was “What does it mean when the agency says your passport/visa is ready for pick up?”
If you’re wondering whether it means your visa actually got approved (or not), the answer to that is… I don’t know. Haha. Apparently, they’re not really allowed to divulge that information over the phone.
Although I will say that when Reli Tours called to tell me just that, I asked anyway (in a whisper) if my passport had been stamped or not. The person on the other end of the line replied (also in a whisper) that I got the visa.
Basically, when in doubt, don’t hesitate to ask 🙂
