Do NOT read through this NVC guide that was linked. It is for the spousal visa process and NOT for a K-1. K-1 applicants submit nothing to the NVC.

OP> Check the K-1 flowchart and your consulate's website for the instructions for Manila. They have them posted there.

eek. Not for a k-1.

op, i implore you, get on a pc with internet access and read the k-1 flowchart in the guides section.

please?

once you do that, find Hank_ 's Handy Dandy, Neeto-Keen (yet spiffy) Guide to SuperFast K-1 Visa Chasing for Manila IV, and adopt it as yer new bible.

no pc? Get to internet cafe, quickly.

Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !
Ya know, you can find the answer to your question with the advanced search tool, when using a PC? Ditch the handphone, come back later on a PC, and try again.
