I took a little break before gathering the necessary supporting docs, then I sent my passport application to the Consulate (San Francisco). Things are paused for now, but it still felt good to get that part done.BigDaddy100 wrote: ↑Wed Oct 21, 2020 10:25 amMy long wait is over! My FBR certificate and supporting docs were delivered yesterday.
USPS Informed Delivery sent a text saying my package was "delivered to an individual".
A few minutes later, it was in my mailbox. No-contact delivery, I guess.

I will get started on the passport application, even though processing is paused for now.
The photo and notary steps will require a little more coordination than they did last time.
Best of luck to all. Hopefully, the Level 5 stage will pass quickly.
