Thanks Nazmas. You should be getting your soon.

I asked for a weekend one and got it. I think unless you don't ask for a specific one they give you the one next week or something. I was initially given one for the 26th.

Does anyone know when do they contact the countersignatory? Is it after the passport interview or before it?

Thanks,
