My child is 15 years old and her dad's filing for her papers in America and we are going to Barbados next week , how long would it take me to get back the passport?
Some intending immigrants have posted on this site that various US Embassies/Consulates have kept the posters' passports for months.
The process of applying the visa on the passport is supposed to take about 2 weeks. It can take shorter or longer.
Your course of action likely is to have the father contact the embassy to see whether he can expect to get the passport back by next week.
