Hello everyone,

just want to get everyone an update on our visa. According to Delbros International and verification from Ms. Grace at the USEM, on February 1, our document verification was completed and delivered to the embassy. As of today we are awaiting the CO to review the document verification from the NSO. How hard is it to look at a registered document or letter stating that the documents provided for this review are authentic. We had our interview on January 9th and to date it has been 23 working days since our interview. I know there are some still waiting on this review also as we have grouped together for support and there have been others on and after our interview date that have got there visa, some within 2 days. I want to say congrats to those members and give you all well wishes but don't leave us one's that are being left behind so to speak. We could use your support and advice. Me or Mercy are in constant contact with the embassy on the process and God knows we have been patient. We just can't wait to get that joyous phone call or word that our visa is approved and is in printing. I hope and pray that at least she is here with me by Valentines Day weekend. That would be one of the most beautiful blessings of this long and dredging process of the USCIS and the USEM.

Again, we continue to be very patient and hope for good news from the USEM this week.

God Bless and thank all of you for your support.

Jim and Mercy :innocent:

I guess this document verification is something new, we didn't have to deal with it two years ago. I hope the issue is resolved quickly. Good luck :thumbs:

They have some fraud going on over there. I married woman my wife used to work with got a new birth certificate in a different name and just got her K-1 VISA. I'm not surprized they're looking at documents a little closer, but I guess the verification doesn't work that great anyway. The fiance doesn't know about the husband. I think she told him she was married before but her husband is dead.

from what i know its just the US Embassy in Manila that requires the document verification. better check your local embassy website for confirmation. Goodluck on your fiance's interview.

I know how you feel...

I was approved last feb6 and was also approved for a visa pick-up but until now, the embassy had yet to call me...A lot of the Feb interviewees who had their interviews later than i did have their visas delivered to them already...And now I'm wondering why there's a hold up with mine...Although my waiting time is still shorter than yours, this is still a concern for both me and my fiance who has been calling the US embassy non-stop to expedite the release of my visa...The embassy had been telling him that verification of documents are being done and we should just wait for the embassy's call for visa pick up when it is ready...But the thing is i paid the document verification last December so that it wont delay my visa and i was wondering why someone i know who just paid her document verification a week before her interview got her visa, 3 days after her interview this feb...I just don't understand how their process work... :innocent::innocent::whistle::whistle::crying:

Hello everyone,

I know the ones that responded to this forum and have asked questions, here are some answers. First and foremost, if you paid the 650 pesos for the requested document verification well in advance of your interview, it really doesn't seem to help you any as Mercy paid for hers on Dec. 11th, almost a full month before our interview. I think this is where the system is screwed up and if these people had a brain, they would stop and think: "Hey, since this couple has paid for their document verification two weeks prior to the interview, let's make a request from the NSO so that when it comes time for the interview, we will have the documents verified and the case and it's progress can move forward or be denied due to fraud or not enough supportive evidence. Hmmmmm, figured that out on my frontal lobe people. Just venting and trying to joke at the same time but it only makes since right? They know well in advance of what the interview schedules are cause we get them well in advance too. And as far as the random selection of the cases they want to review, pull it out of the hat two weeks in advance. To answer your questions on what documents they verify here they are. NBI clearance, Police clearance, Cenomar (Certificate of no Marriage, Annualment Decisions if previously married, and of course the birth certificate.) Mercy got her documents from the NSO and had them authenticated at the DFA (Department of Foreign Affairs) but it still did not help us to avoid this document verification. Honeybear, I hope you hear something soon. Stay on the phone with the embassy and I would call Ms. Allen at Delbros International and correlate your documents verification with her between the USEM and the NSO. Her number is 011-63-2-339-2761 I believe. At least that is the number my Mercy gave me. If anyone has any further questions I will help out as much as I can. Let's just keep each other in prayer and God will see us through this mess.

God Bless all of you,,,

Jim and Mercy

Hi Jim!

I got the Good News today...The US embassy called me at 3pm that my visa is ready for pick-up on thursday, Feb 14....Actually, My fiance has been calling them non-stop since my interview to follow-up on the release of my visa...Thanks to Ms Grace of US Embassy hotline 301-2000 loc. 5184-5185 who has been very helpful and accomodating to my fiance...She was kind enough to look for my file since apparently it was lost in a pile of documents. After she found my file, she asked my fiance to call her again the next day afternoon for the update...and rightfully so...the next day when my fiance called the hotline (Sofia was on the line not Ms Grace this time) my visa was ready to be picked-up!

At least all that hours of Overseas call bills isnt in vain, shux!!!

Good luck to you Jim, Call them everyday...and ask them nicely to find your file...Persistence is the key! Actually, the first few times that my fiance called the hotline, they said that document verification was still being done but same as u, i paid the doc. verif. more than a month before my interview which he pointed out to the hotline operators....so the operators tried to find my file and had it processed...I hope the same for you and your fiancee! Goodluck!!

delbertjohnson, I am sorry to hear you are in AR hell.

As for the document verification I agree with your point of view. Why does the USEM website say to pay two weeks before interview to avert possible delay? Why have you text DELBROS to verify payment if verification is not done ahead of time? Why is the USEM asking many applicants to pay the 650 PHP a second time after interview?
