Yesterday, i payed another visit to British Embassy, for a visa for 2 days, yeah 2 days, ok they gave me for 6 months but i only need it for 2 days.
And this time, i thought it will be much smoother as they have made the overall process online and only thru' appointments. But i was about to be proved wrong.
After completing everything online 1 week before the The Day ie. yesterday. I took an early flight to Düsseldorf and arrived perfectly on time as given by them ie. 10:00 AM. But nothing has changed in their process (atleast from my point of view). The person checked all documents and asked a few things and asked me to wait. The wait was never ending. I think they didn't even had look at application form before, as they were interviewing every single person there and there was no sign that I had an appointment for 10:30 and as its a short visit visa and should not take much time. But somehow, i (and another 2) was one of the last person to sit there and just sit there and it was already 2 PM and people came back to collect passports back (missed some important calls too as no cell phones were allowed). And at 2 PM, which is i believe closing time, without any personal talk with visa officer, i was given visa.
Hmm, so much for my appointment!!
PS: i am not complaining, but i just thought it could have been made much more smoother and wanted to share the thought
