Manila Philippines Embassy/St Lukes/CFO Questions

I have a few questions: Is St Lukes supposed to keep my fiancee's passport after her exam and forward to Manila embassy? Can she take the CFO seminar without her passport (per previous question) while waiting for visa? How long is it taking now to receive visa from time of actual interview/approval?

Thanks again everyone!!

Hmmm, my fiancee just finished her interview on the 16th. I do not think they require the CFO any longer. Naty will be going to the PDOS prior to leaving. I am sure others will respond soon. But in any case. She needs to make a photocopy of her passport and carry it with her. I am expecting the visa to be delivered this week. about 8 to 10 days. She will pay AIR 21 at the Embassy and they will deliver the visa to her. ( it was P 215) Good luck on your journey.

Comments : She recived the first notice from Manila on Valentines day. Perfect timing.

The first setback came during the medical. Naty had to do the 3 day sputum and then we waited 2 months for the results. YESSSS>came back negative

Went for her interview on July 16th and received her Pink Slip......Finally. Paid the AIR21 and I expect her here August 10th, 2009. Marriage will be August 21st, exactly 4 years to the day that we first met.

Yes it's true, but I suggest just to wait for her passport so no need for her to go back there for the sticker. Just give half day for the seminar...
