nope.. just few hours.. :blush:

Exacto! Please review Section 6.2 of the Manila Embassy K1 Visa Guide. Within my signature block, there are links to the Manila and Cebu locations where the Guidance and Counseling Seminar schedules are listed on the CFO website. By the by, going to receive the subsequent CFO sticker takes even less time.

Cheers!!!
