It means it wasn't an instant approval- but not an instant denial either. Was this the email your friend got after the application or what popped up on the screen? Your friend should check the app status and see what else it says. They may need more info. When I app'd for Zync I got something similar but it told me they needed to verify some info before they could fully process my app. Mostly, this just seems like one of those 7-10 day messages.

Did s/he use their overseas military address? Maybe their credit profile has an old address on it or something?
In the past four years I've had multiple addresses due to moving for job(s) and graduate school. Currently, I use a PO box for my mail but with CC apps I generally use a physical address even though that isn't where I receive my mail. When I app'd for the Zync I used my physical address and then when I spoke with rep to verify info she put in my PO box and it worked out for me since that's where my banking statement and other CC info goes.
I've never seen the unable to locate app before. Maybe s/he should just wait 24 hours and see if it updates on the site then. If not, I'd give AMEX a call about it and see what a rep can do.

Hi Tina....thx for your reply...
I know they used their home addy here in US.
We just got thru skyping.
I have been handling personal and financial issues for them.
They just recently had an issue with USAA, we had to conference in on. When asked by the USAA rep, all he can say at an undisclosed location, USAA knows he is active. So, things were easy with that.
He was RECONING USAA. LOL
Trying to get home to the states for Christmas, and unable to jump flights.
They said they will set their clock to call them later. Different time zone, and busy at moment.
