I am 'trying' to schedule an interview with the embassy in Manila. The fee was paid yesterday at 9:39. I have been trying to get past the receipt number all day. WHAT IS THE RECEIPT NUMBER? So far I have keyed in every number on the receipt.

The call center said it was the passport number, but it has been 12 hours since payment and it won't go through.

Does she have to go to the embassy in person with the receipt to schedule?

Receipt# is your fiancee's Passport#, as shown on her receipt from BPI. If she paid yesterday, which was a Sunday here in the Philippines, you'll have to wait 'till Monday. I paid mine on a Saturday and I wasn't able to schedule an interview online until Monday @1PM.

@spikedog: yes, "receipt number" for online scheduling is your fiancee's passport number. Also be aware that if time of payment is weekend or holiday then: (1) receipt purchase date will be the next banking day and (2) interview booking may be done one day after receipt purchase date and after 11:00 a.m. This information is from info & chart at bottom of the following web page:

http://www.ustraveld...paymentinfo.asp

Also, hint: have an interview date already in mind as well as some alternate possible dates because if you hesitate too long during the online scheduling to make decision, the online scheduler will timeout and you will have to start over. Good luck! --RK and Inday

Thanks everyone. It seems that my girl didn't pay enough at the bank (50 pesos short). So I (we) wasted a day over about $1. Off to the banks she goes tomorrow to pay the remainder :thumbs:. For the life of me, why would they accept less than the specified amount for a payment such as this :bonk: It's like buying your licence plates on the installment plan.

the current payment is 15050 (note the 50). BPI has no idea what you are paying the Embassy for, or what the rates are. This makes it difficult sometimes. You have to know exactly what to pay. Sometimes it stinks... but because of all the rates. It makes it hard.

Best of luck. The timeout seems to be on the old system. The new scheduling system seems better. I hope all goes well. just have all the forms ready when going to the embassy. The embassy checks the forms at the first checkpoint to make sure you are ready. then from there it just flows.

Good luck.

It turns out that the bank teller took the 50 as a "service fee" by accident and only put 15000 in the embassy account. My girl went back to the bank and got it straightened out. It took an extra day because only the head teller can make refunds :whistle:

My girl was laid off from her factory job due to lack of work early last week, so she now has time to pursue the visa 100%. We were wondering when she would need to quit and the company made the decision for us :thumbs:

Anyway all is good now, she got an interview 10/7 at 6:45 and she is done with her medical. Things are moving again and quickly.

We both think she should be here by late October!

CAPITALIZE the #$&^#^&#^%&^%%& "letters" in the passport number, holy ####### that was frustrating. Found it out on the 13284578245246th attempt at scheduling.
