Going out of the country

New Arrival

Hello! I am going out of the country on 3/28, for about 3 weeks.  It’s my understanding that the application process may take a year or more, but people are saying they are already getting calls or emails. I’m concerned I could possibly miss my chance if I miss a call or email.  I put in my application within the first 3 hours on 2/5/18. Should I be concerned? Thank you for your help!  Have a LUVly day!

Thank you very much for your quick response! I will check my email on a regular basis! I appreciate your help! Have a great day! 

I am unsure if the SWA people's department does a 2 fly by or just one stop - on a missed email

Although my extended international travels are in my knowledge the 'icims' FA portal does not give an indication or update of out going communication at this time.  I encourage you to continue to check e-mail ( my inbox can be monitored by a family member who could txt me or reach the tour/hotel to contact me  ASAP night or day) as well as the community posts.



All in the SPIRT of a SWA FA


Best of Luck- FA Class of 2018 -- Hope to meet you and ENJOY the world travel!
