Invitations
« on: June 12, 2014, 10:38:40 AM »
I'm curious as to how often people get invited to the countries they were nominated for, so I'd love to hear from people that have already served or received invitations. I understand that everyone does not receive a nomination for a specific country and I have no idea as to why this might be. I also understand that the application process is going through major changes and that will most likely have an affect on things. I received a nomination just last week to Zambia for June 2015 and I am driving myself crazy trying to figure our whether or not I'll be invited there or somewhere else. I'm thinking that invitations are going to be sent out earlier now since all legal and medical clearance (unless you require premedical clearance) will be done after you receive an invitation, but that's just my theory.

My wife and I are in the same boat. We were nominated back in March for Vanuatu (leaving 1/15), and now are awaiting an invite.
From what I have gathered, and what our recruiter has said, unless we hear otherwise, assume the nomination country is where you're going.....I'm telling myself to believe it when I actually see it.

I was nominated in May for March 2015 Community Economic Development in Mexico. I had medical pre-clearance forms that I completed June 20th and the PC Medical Nurses are currently working on all 2014 medical clearances.

I hope that helps.

I was nominated to Ukraine and served there the first time around. This time I was nominated to Indonesia and am invited to serve in Albania. Stop worrying! Just go where they send you...I promise you won't be disappointed!!
