HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO RECEIVE THE VISA FROM US EMBASSY-MANILA?

Hi everyone, I had my interview first week of this month. All papers are okay but the consul asked one more from me - NBI Clearance (I already submit NBI clearance for my single name and married name). There's an error in my birth certificate (from NSO) but corrected it 2007 when I was in college so now they are askng for my uncorrected name. Since I have a history already, I put the uncorrected name as A.K.A and sent the clearance (together with my passport) to the embassy after 9 days.

Just wondering how long will it take for them to process it? Will it take months? Is there a way for us to find out the status of it?

Thanks!!

REPOST:
if you want to know the status of your visa while waiting or kong me kulang kayo that you already submitted, better call the 3012000 ext. 5184 or 5185..call them early in the morning kase after 8am, for sure super busy na yun..

i based that from a friend's timeline.She only lacked the divorce decree.And it was in December so maraming holidays.I dont know if its new but 2 of my friends who just had their interview used that number to inquire about the status of their visa.They will tell u if its ready for printing or when they have printed it and the date on its out to delivery.After that u can track your visa in 2GO site..

Unfortunately, they don't allow this anymore. All passports are returned via courier (they changed their courier from Air21 to 2Go)

I was interviewed January 27 for K1 visa and until now I am still waiting. It's been 8 working days from my interview date and haven't received any notice from the embassy manila yet that my visa is already out for delivery. I wonder how long it may take.

Hope to get response from the forum members who underwent the same... Thanks
