Passport delayed due to birth cert. error by Midwife

14 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Due to an error by the midwife that delivered my wife, her birth certificate is not correct. We did not notice that until she was denied a passport due to the error--neither male nor female box checked.

She is getting a new birth certificate to apply for a passport. The delay will likely be around two months. The original expected delivery date of the passport was March 25.

I just got the confirmation notice from NVC that our visa app has been sent to U.S. Embassy, Manila, Philippines. It said the transfer process can take several weeks.

With the above time taken into account, and knowing that it can take several months to get an interview in Manila, my question is: does it look like we will be on time with the passport and interview dates? We did ask if the passport process can be expedited but even having someone inside from an agency, the time delay is the same. No expedited delivery is possible.

Thanks for any information or help you can provide.

And sorry for my rambling. It's 2:22 a.m. in Nebraska.....

I guess it'll be fine as processing at USEM takes weeks and she'll have to prepare docs for interview as well. By the way, my fiancé is from nebraska too. We'll be traveling there in March. Goodluck on your journey !

Interview appointments are not taking several months anymore, the expedite rush has passed, one can get an interview date within a month now with ease. Don't worry about your petition validity either, the embassy will automatically extend that up to a year.

Once you have the passport it is rock and roll time. For the process in Manila follow the flashing arrow below.

Try a copy of your NOA2 showing your petition for the K-1 visa has been approved.

How did you get into DFA so quickly? My fiance had to go through an agency to speed the process up a bit, and that failed due to the bad birth certificate.

We would like to get this done asap because NVC says the application has been sent to Manila

Thanks for you reply,

Jim

you dont need to go through agency all you need to do is write a letter bout why you wanted your fiance passport to be expedited the process then attach a copy of noa2 just like what hank said since you dont have nvc letter why not use hank advice to attach the hard copy of noa2 then bring it to dfa local office wer your fiance applied her passport.. thats what we did but with additional payment, hope it works on you.. gud luck

Just received the NVC notice on Monday Feb. 23. I'm asking my girl to take that to DFA office--there is no local office close to Taytay, Rizal--along with her new birth certificate when she gets it in two weeks.

It took me two months to get my then fiance an interview after they said that they were sending it over there. It was supposed to be 3 months actually but i nagged and complained a lot and called the embassy like I owed the place until I got what I wanted. Point is, you have time. If you just got notice that you case is being transferred to the embassy and she is supposed to get this new passport by the end of March, I'm confident that her interview will be scheduled well after that.
