This morning, HR let me know that “the law firm confirmed today that your file arrived at the consulate of France in Vancouver.”
This means that my Visa has arrived in Vancouver, and now all I have to do is pick it up.
Update: I really don’t know what this means, actually. I went to the consulate today and got an infuriating run-around from the people at the office. When I asked if they had my Visa, they told me that I needed to fill out an application. When I told them that I’d already done that, they asked to see it. When I told them that I submitted it to the consulate in Paris, they laughed and told me that there is no consulate in Paris — why would they need a French consulate in France? When I told them that I really didn’t know who I submitted it to, but my Visa was definitely here, they told me that they couldn’t talk to me without an appointment and my application form filled out in triplicate and asked me to come back tomorrow.
