The paper trail to Moscow
Wednesday, September 20, 2006
Our agency let us know that our dossier was sent off to Moscow yesterday. They mentioned that it typically takes about three days to get to Moscow. It then will be translated into Russian in their Moscow office and that usually takes anywhere from one week to two weeks. After that the documents will be sent to our region (Omsk) and to the officials there.

Since our dossier is quite large, I'm betting it will take a full two weeks for the translation. So my guess is by mid October we will be in a position to get into the queue for a referral. A very big however, as I've mentioned before we still must wait for our agency (and almost everyone else is in this same boat) to get reaccredited (see "The Whole NGO" post below for my pontification on that major issue).

    But hey, that's great it's on its way! Who knows, this may be perfect timing and once your dossier is ready, so will be the agency!

    I was hoping we'd hear good NGO news today, since you all did yesterday. No go. Maybe tomorrow? That's become my new motto, "Maybe Tomorrow"!

    Doesn't it feel good when you get that dossier off to Russia. It is like handing in your thesis. Congrats. Glad to have you join us in the wait.
