Mom is 61 y/o (IR-5)...does she need to attend the CFO Seminar?

Hi Everyone,

My 61 y/o Mom's interview is on 8/19/15. I read on the CFO website that 60 y/o and above are exempt from attending the seminar. I wonder, though, if she can go to CFO and get the sticker/stamp before the interview, or does it have to be after, when she has the Visa on hand. I just want her to get everything done while she's in Manila since she has to go back to Visayas and she travels by herself. I also wonder, if we have to make an online appointment on the CFO website since she is exempt from the seminar? I'd really appreciate all the helpful input.

She needs to wait until she has the visa on the passport to get the CFO sticker. They will not give it to her in advance even if she's exempt from attending the seminar.

Do I need to schedule online for her appointment or can she just walk-in? Also, do you have any idea how long it takes for CFO to give her the sticker? If everything goes well on the interview, I will try and book her flight. I guess she can do CFO before flying to the US, but then a connecting flight (which I originally planned) from the province to SFO will be out of the question.... :unsure:
