Remote payment of Visa App fee and Medical

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Do any of you know if there's a way to pay the Visa application fee remotely, i.e from the U.S.? I'm not speaking of the K-1 petition app but the second one you pay at BPI in Manila. Then you show your receipt when you book your appointment for an interview. Also, same for the medical exam fee. Do they accept debt or credit payments? How bout a bank transfer or other method?

6/30/15: K-1 Petition sent

7/3/15: K-1 Received at USCIS (NOA1)

7/30/15: K-1 approval letter from USCIS CSC (NOA2)

8/17/15: NVC Received Visa package from USCIS

TBD: NVC Case Number Issuance

Online if you have a bank account with them.....Other than that no. Medical exam fee must be in P at SLEC....no other way for that one.

You don't have to show your receipt when making an appt, just have to bring it with you to the appt. If appt is booked online you have to input the receipt number.

Yes you can pay online, but there is a limited number of banks you can use. Go to my website and scroll all the way to the bottom of the page and use the link there for "other bank options" for visa appointment payment.

The medical exam fee is collected at SLEC on the day of the appointment. They except pesos only.

Can I ask why you want to do all this online and not send the money to your fiancé to make the payments?

This is a million dollar question. My Fiance has almost completely disappeared in Manila. No one has heard from her in about 10 days. Family, friends nor me. She is giving me a reason to discontinue the relationship right in the middle of NVC packet to Manila. It's so frustrating to have spent all this time and effort only to be let down in disappointment. :(

NOPE!! YOU can not pay it. It can be paid online IF you have a bank account here in the Phils. Otherwise it is a walk to BPI with the required fee and documents.

Seriously. You should be looking into moving on instead of moving forward.

Inquiring minds want to know, DID YOU SEND HER MONEY AT ALL?
