Who is still waiting for the visa from USEM for January

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

Just a thought but who is still waiting on their visa from the USEM that have had their interviews in first two weeks or there after of January?

I am about to explode due to seeing people getting there visa approval and visa's within 2 to 3 days of there interview. I am happy for those who have but at the same time I am about to go crazy wondering why it is taking so long for them to verify documents that were suppose to verify prior to the interview. Just wanted to get a general overview of the situation so that I can pass it on to my congressman so to tell them just how this whole process needs to be looked at and reviewed for it efficiency.

We were interview on January 9th, 2007

Jim snd Mercy,

We had our interview last Jan. 4 and afterwhich the consul said we're almost done pls proceed to window 37. We go there, from there the man gave is the paper and said there is still a document to be verified, it will take 2 to 3 weeks for verification. We don't know what document to be verified. We paid at Delbros for the delivery of the visa already and keep on calling them too if the visa is already ready for delivery but up to now we have not heard from the USEM yet. Our lawyer sends her query to the embassy but they said to just wait. In fact, my fiance contacted already the congressman in his area and we're waiting for the reply. It has been 3 weeks now that we didn't hear from them. Don't know what was happening. The worst is my landline here in the Philippines is bayantel and we could not go thru the visa call center. I was able to call the center yesterday when i had a chance to talk to our GM at the office where i am working to let me use the phone(as we were not allowed to use for personal call) so i could contact the call center. When i get to talk to the call center agent named Cora she told me that it will take 6 weeks to verify the documents according to their system. And if after 6 weeks i will not hear from the Embassy, i will call again and let them know. I am just wondering why it took that long to verify the docs.? why not inform the concerned person what specific docs they want so they will be provided? we are in hell thinking about it and it made us desperate.

Hi everyone!

Finally got my visa after twenty three days. Thank you especially to beng. God bless you all.

Hey Yolly,

Congrat!!. I so happy for you. Thanks for your post on this forum. It gives us some hope that ours is soon to be next. As you know, our interview was on Jan. 9th and a request was made to the NSO on Jan 11th. As of Monday, Manila time, there was still no word from NSO on the document verification via Ms. Allen with Delbros International but you know it can be getting second hand news on the whereabouts of the verification paperwork. Just keep us in your thoughts and prayers. God Bless you on the rest of your journey and have a safe flight to the states. Welcome to America. God Bless,,

Jim and Mercy
