I'm texting from Canada, my friend who is from Greece

Customer Question
Hi , I'm texting from...
Hi , I'm texting from Canada, my friend who is from Greece and is in Greece now waiting to get his visa approved still. He is dr. And has been studying in Boston fir the last 4 years, and is in a residency program, went to Greece to renew his visa and they would not and put it on a temporary suspension. Everytime he contacts them they tell him to stop bothering them. He has his board exams coming up, he has a good chance of losing his residence with the hospital he is working for, and the embassy will not give any info as to what why and when. He is my sisters friend and I'm just stressed for him, is there anything he can do but wait?

Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
For what reason are they denying his visa renewal? Has he contacted his residency program, since they are the ones who have the ability to move the process along?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
