Hello!

I am an American citizen who is engaged to a Filipina woman, and she is currently working in Singapore. We have sent in the initial paperwork for the K1 visa (the I-129f package, proof of relationship, etc.) and that all has been approved now. She has received her letter stating the list of requirement which she needs to complete for the visa application. She has completed most of the steps already but is still waiting for the NBI.

I would like to check if it's necessary for her to mail back the letter to the US Embassy already and schedule her interview appointment even though she is still waiting for the last document that she needs, which is the NBI. Or, would it be best for her to complete all the document first before mailing back the letter to the embassy and arranging for an interview?

In addition, can she check if the date of interview is to be chosen by the consular officer or is she the one who will choose her preferred interview date?

Thank you and I'm looking forward to hear your advise.

Is your fiancee interviewing in Manila or in Singapore?

If she will be returning to Manila for the interview:

You do not send anything back to the embassy indicating you are ready. You simply pay the visa fee and schedule the interview online. You choose your own interview date. You will just bring all required documents with you to the visa interview.

Hello!

I am an American citizen who is engaged to a Filipina woman, and she is currently working in Singapore. We have sent in the initial paperwork for the K1 visa (the I-129f package, proof of relationship, etc.) and that all has been approved now. She has received her letter stating the list of requirement which she needs to complete for the visa application. She has completed most of the steps already but is still waiting for the NBI.

I would like to check if it's necessary for her to mail back the letter to the US Embassy already and schedule her interview appointment even though she is still waiting for the last document that she needs, which is the NBI. Or, would it be best for her to complete all the document first before mailing back the letter to the embassy and arranging for an interview?

In addition, can she check if the date of interview is to be chosen by the consular officer or is she the one who will choose her preferred interview date?

Thank you and I'm looking forward to hear your advise.

i would go ahead and mail the letter back to the embassy. the IV unit will select an interview date for her, typically she will have a few weeks to prepare for it, although sometimes earlier/later interview dates might be available. if at the time of the interview, her NBI still has not arrived, she can still attend the interview, but will be asked to submit the NBI as soon as it is available. her visa will not be issued until the document is in.


Flying to Seattle on 6 May 2014!
