As long as you have document all ready - I emailed my list of documents and they verified if anything is missing. (email@example.com)
I was applying Resident Visas.
I mailed documents USPS priority and they received it the next day and processed it on the same day. They mailed it back using the self-addressed prepaid priority and it arrived the next day. Basically 3 days total.
We used TECO Houston, but they mailed us back the passport, but no visa. No one has answered phone calls or emails. My daughter’s flight is in a week and I’m starting to sweat it. They wouldn’t mail the damn thing from tw would they?
Hopefully I don’t sound mean but no one knows. Especially with COVID it varies each week. Just talk to them about it. No one online can help you. Maybe they got their fast last week but now it’s different.
Does anyone have recent experience applying for a visa through Seattle TECO? Do they respond quicker to phone or email? Do I need to apply in person or can I send my documents via mail? (I’m applying for the Mandarin study (FR) visitor visa under the pandemic requirements.)
