Processing time after submitting CENOMAR

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi guys!My sister had her interview last June 5,2015. CO told her to request for a CENOMAR from a nearby NSO which is in Asay City. She requested it the same day when she had her interview and her case was updated the next day which is June 6 2015. Since then, her status is still under AP. Has anyone had this situation? How long did it took for your visa to be issued? My sister's visa category is IR2. Thanks in advance!

According to all the websites they are not printing any visas in Manila at this time.

manila.usembassy.gov/ has all the information, I do not know when this was updated, but it is worth reading.

Aw, that sucks. Are you waiting for your visa to be issued as well?

Very normal. When there a 221g is issued for a requested document it can very easily add 2 - 4 weeks more to the waiting time for the visa to be ISSUED. Just have to be patient.

And like said with the latest hacker attack things have slowed down dramatically.
