Today i.e. 48 hours from my interview schedule, I can go to loomis branch and pick up my passport as it is in undeliverable status. You can track and trace status of passport in loomis website, for that you can click on the waybill number on summary page or link in the email you receive from US consular services.

All I am trying to say is successfully passport can be collected after 48 hours from your visa appointment schedule. If everything goes okay.

I did not plan return ticket, I made reservations after the interview.

Note: Do not take my word on this. It might depend upon case to case. Just refer this as one of successful stories.

For those who r worried about delay due to PIMS, please contact ur company attorney and ask him whether he had sent two copies of I129 to USCIS at time of H1 filing. There are many topics in forum which would help you to prepare well for interview as well as documentation required.

Once again All the best and I thank everyone who are actively responding to their questions here in forums.
