I moved to another city to attend a wedding and would not be able to pick the passport until 1/30, any idea what’s happening to my case- should I expect visa stamped or something else.
@kumar, is the CEAC status reliable, are there other similar cases reported?
It is very much reliable. It means that your passport is ready for pickup. Call the customer service and ask them your options. They maybe able to hold it for you for few days or ship it using Speed Post.
Do update here on how it goes.
The online status on CEAC website is quite generic, it may or may not mean the same. Sometimes, when you are waiting also you see that message. They will inform you, if you need visa interview. Email / call them on the status, if you have any. Yes, do update.
