Spent the whole day at SMEF and CFO today. Overall it was a great experience. I have met many lovely ladies out there. We even had lunch together at Abuhan beside Robinson's Place.

TIPS and ADVICE: You would opt to bring the requirements you presented to the US Embassy as the SMEF staff may ask for it for their own records. These will be kept in confidence and will be for your own good. It's a shame that when I was going thru the seminar I did notice some women there who are clueless about their partners and what klind of life they are entering. It was also evident for some that they are getting engaged or married for the sake of the money. This made me a lil sick. :(

The SMEF in Cebu have been getting very good feedback and they were all approachable and accommodating. Way to go!

Requirements:

SMEF

K1:

> Passport and visa photocopy

> 2 valid IDs and photocopy

> Photocopy of Birth certificate for me and my daughter

> fee of PHP250.00

***My daughter is 7 so she was not required to join the seminar.

Documents requested:

> Biographic info of fiance

> Letter of employment of fiance

> Letter of intent to marry from fiance

> Photocopy of divorce decree of fiance

> Photocopy divorce certificate of fiance

> Photocopy of fiance's birth certificate

> Pictures together

CFO

K1:

> Blue certificate from SMEF

> Photocopy of passport and visa

> Passport and visa

> fee of PHP400.00

K2:

When you do get thru the seminar it will make sense. As I have said, there were so many ignorant women there who went for this seminar... they were clueless and I hate to say it but they don't look legit.

Just kind of a wake up call for gold-diggers and a good source of info for possible victims of domestic violence.

Also, the attendees of this seminar are not just US-bound. It's a way for the government to protect us. It's all for our sake.

nup, the yellow envelope is the packet which you are going to give to the DHS officers at POE, your visa is in your passport.
