I think we get Packet 4. Packet 3 is for the CR1/IR1 visa applicants. Your Packet 4 should contain the appointment letter, instructions, DS156 and DS157 forms and a sheet of paper describing the right photo for the visa.

I got mine last week. I used the DS 157 form that came with it and had it validated at the BPI bank for the Visa application fee.

Some applicants in the Philippines receive pre-interview letter and they think it's the Packet 3. There is no Packet 3, just 4 that contains appointment letter, instructions, DS forms (which are basically useless because they are outdated :whistle: )

Don't worry about it...

Your timeline shows that you got your medical and interview schedules online on January 24.Most probably your Packet 4 will reach you in about 3 to 4 weeks so just hang in there and goodluck on your incoming medical and interview. :thumbs:
