Sorry to hear that Glenn, Morgana Lefay and co. I'm amazed that the website states a two week waiting period for a P-1 visa! I can certainly confirm the difficulties and the hoops the bookers and the bands have to jump through to sort out the visas. Seems like the Swedish experience is very similar to the Australian one. We once received a tour offer 10 weeks out from its commencement. Even that was not enough time. Our consular appointments could only be arranged two days after our flights to the USA were scheduled to leave - and this was after paying in excess of $500 per person for the priority processing (after paying for petitioning, interview and issuance fees of course!). If it weren't for the perpetual good guys at Virgin Airlines taking pity on us and allowing us to reschedule, we may have been out an additional $10,000 in flights. This little Photoshop thing captured our heightened frustrations at the time: Fortunately this time around everything has worked out smoothly, due in no small part to Glenn, Marc, and the professional PPUSA team! Hopefully, with continued pressure (and lawsuits!), the process may be reviewed by the powers that be in the future so they don't have to deal with all this red tape and uncertainty.
