Case Number for my K2

12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Good day to all VJers. I would like to thank you in advance for taking time out to read my question and loads of thanks for your replies.

Apologies if my concern had appeared in previous forum topic before. I tried to search for it but could not find it in any of the forums. Anyway, my concern is something that hasn't happened yet and rather being anticipated. I have a K2 who is "accompanying". My case status has been READY on the CEAC website since July 23rd. There appear two case numbers, which unlike yours without K2, our case numbers have two more digits added to the usual number of digits after "2015" of a K1 case number without K2. So I presume mine as K1 is MNL2015XXXXXX 01 and my K2 is MNL2015XXXXXX 02.

My question is, when I make the deposit with BPI for the Visa Fee, how do I provide the case number to the teller? Should it be with the extra two-digit extension or just the number without extension? I understand that K1 and K2 are to be treated as distinct from each other in certain ways, like I am to print a deposit slip, pay accordingly, fill out DS-160, pay and schedule for SLEC for each of us. How do I go about these processes as far as providing our case number(s) is concerned?

Your inputs are greatly appreciated. :)

Hello! Everything sounds confusing.

K1 and k2? What kind visa have u applied?

K1 VISA I assume. How did u get informed of ur case number? Did u call NVC for it?

Also are ur case numbers the same despite the extension 01 and 02?

Also I suggest you to use the same case number you use in ceac in everything u use it.

A very strange case.

Maybe NVC would have some answers about this and you might contact them.

The only numbers as for K1 visa needed from NVC are case number and invoice ID.

Good luck!

hi izabelajean. thank you for taking time out to read my post. Am in the process of applying for a K1 visa. K2 visa (for unmarried child/children of k1 below 21) is a derivative of K1. Yes, I got my NVC case number by calling the NVC. And yes again, both case numbers are the same except for the 2-digit extensions 01 and 02.

Thanks and good luck to you too. :)

I sponsored a K-1 (my now wife) and her two children (K-2's) so you will use the MNL# with the two added digits when needed. And, yes 01 is yours and 02 will be the child's MNL#. There will be extra spaces on some documents that require it. If they ask for the full number then provide the MNL# with the added digits and if they don't ask, well don't provide. So when you do your payment you will make out two slips, one for you and one for the child. Take both of those to the bank to make a payment with those receipts. You can also pay online if you would like. Instructions are at my website. Link is in the next sentence.

More about the payment steps can be found here.

What is actually needed for paying the visa fee at BPI is a deposit slip for EACH of you (you print them out from the link in my guide), paying each fee individually. Then online you when you create your profile you will use the MNL # there, along with the deposit slip numbers when scheduling your interview date.

Details in my link below.

It's really not confusing. A K-1 visa is for a person that have met, and want to marry but the want to marry in the (in this case) USA. So in many cases it's a man who is a USC (United States Citizen) that wants to marry a Filipino woman and petition her (K-1) and her child (K2) to immigrate to the US with the intention of becoming a whole family.

So the K-1/K-2 is the visa type they have applied for.

Getting the case number which in the Philippines is referred to as the MNL#. The MNL signifies that it's the US Embassy Manila. To shave off about two months of waiting time, if they elect to wait for the NOA2 then it will be an additional two months average), then they call NVC and get the MNL# so they can get the process moving a little faster. In some cases they need to get a email notification for that would officially contain the MNL# hence the reason that they should email NVC and ask for the MNL# in a return email.

The MNL# (case number) will have include two extra digits on the end of the number to signify who the mother is and who is the child.

Many of the places that she will search for case updates will only ask for the MNL# with out the extra digits as it's not necessary to include them because the two cases, mother and child, are moving through the system together.

It's not really strange, it's just you are not familiar with the K-1 visa as I am not familiar with say F-1 or M-1 or any of the others. I am versed in the K-1/K-2 visa.

The numbers she needs from NVC is only the case number (MNL#) and they don't have anything to do with the invoice number (IN). IN comes after you pay your visa fee and it is what is referred to as the UID number, and is needed for the scheduling of the interview as it ties back to the visa payment made at the bank.

Very well explained. I couldn't have done it as well as you did, thank you. And that answered another question in mind, what point in the process would I make use of the Invoice Identification Number or IIN. Now, I'm all set. Thank you!

When you schedule your interview you will need to provide the UID number, which you are referring to as the invoice number so they are the same number.

Got it, thank you. Thank you for your k1 guide too. It helped me a great deal in understanding the process.
