  1. James L. and Juli T. Star-Alexander registered at the same time some time but had you not mentioned it, we would not have checked further. James’ STEP was processed as he received notice. I did not. When we go to the meeting, can we get them to do it for us if we bring the equipment? There appears to be no way to prove STEP enrollment as the form is completed through Embassy web site. Would appreciate a response, thanks!

  2. Will they be in David again around June or July 2015. It appears they are coming to David every 6 months or so. We will need passport renewal Feb 2016 but don’t want to do it a whole year early.

  3. Don, I just had my passport renewed and it was about as easy as it gets! I was in and out of the Embassy in less than an hour. From there, I had my passport in less than two weeks! I would say that is pretty amazing! The Embassy is great!

    Thank you Don, for taking the time to keep us so well informed! You are more helpful than you may realize!
