Hi,

I had my interview on June 4, 2015 and no affidavit of support was being asked from me. I still have it. I was told on "releasing window" USEM Manila, that I may now go home.

Will I have a problem waiting for my visa?

Praying and hoping not.

They don't always ask for it as it's not a legal binding document. For the past few months USEM has trailed off on asking for them, but it's still reccommended to take it because of the possibility that they might ask. In short, no. It's ok.

Incorrect, the I-864 IS a legally binding document. It is usually submitted to the NVC (not sure about DCF cases). Regardless, an Affidavit of Support and supporting documents must be reviewed and approved by a CO (doesn't matter which country) before an immigrant visa can be issued.

OP, was documentation submitted to the NVC or was the petition filed at the field office in Manila by the Petitioner?

For your visa type, that doc was collected at NVC. What's yer USCitizen spouse have to say about when he/she sent it on to NVC? I ask, because your official VJ timeline is totally empty, up at http://www.visajourney.com/timeline/profile.php?id=208589.. Could you make the time, now, nowish, to fill it out? Thanks so much, and Thanks in Advance !

Your answer is correct for any K-1 visa chaser in Manila.

Sadly, the OP is not of that Visa Type.

You must be following your country portal. Are you on a phone vs a PC or tablet?

Was on my phone at the time, and yes just looking at Phils stuff. I should have double checked to make sure of such things anyway...

It's hard on your phone. I've done it as well.

You did not say if they kept your passport, sounds like they did, just wondering.

Keeping passport, means, usually you passed.

I hope it was good for you, and they kept your passport.

yes they did keep my passport. but because of the backlogs I am expecting my visa within 2 weeks. tho at CEAC says it is still "ready"

I am hoping to hear an answer from them really soon.

Thank you! :)

now there's a backlog of printing the visa foil stamp and glue-ing into the passports, some global problem that just got solved.

Hope you get your stuff soon. You looking at the 2go tracking pages? ustraveldocs.com/ph passport tracking pages?

Yes i am aware of the backlog. But all of my non immigrant friends got their visas just this week and i was interviewed before them. I figured immigrant visas are still in backlog.

I only check with the passsport tracker but no update yet. I call 2go directly almost evryday since last week (they already know me there, haha). CEAC is not working accurately.

Thank u!.:)
