  2. Did you try asking the consulate? The next step is you get the passport in the mail usually but how long it takes varies on the consulate and the case. Call or email them and ask for a timeframe.

  3. You should wait for sometime. If you don't receive any notification from them, you can call or write to the consulate. How did you send your passport to the Consulate? Do you have mailing receipt confirmation?

    Contact an immigration attorney for consultation to give you a detailed advice.

  4. They will return the passport to you with the visa packet. Did you provide a DHL label for them? Regular mail can be risky in some countries. You should contact the consulate to find out if they've already sent it but you didn't get it. It dies also drpend on the consulate a lot.
