CRBA/Passport approval!

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

My wife had our sons CRBA and passport interview today at the embassy in Manila. Everything went smooth as we thought (Thank God!), however, since I had my passport notzarized in the Philippines this past may, they asked if I would mail them a copy of my passport notarized from a notary in the US. It appears they do not accept Philippines notary of an American citizens passport for this purpose (remember this everyone who is applying for CRBA for a child in Manila). I'm going to send out this copy directly to American citizens services Via 2 day UPS delivery, which will put it in the consulars hands by monday (no delays) and we should have our sons CRBA and passport within 2-3 weeks! Once she has these, she will bring them back to Visa services in the embassy without an interview appointment so they can issue her visa to her. Normally that process takes only a few days! Looks like I should have my family here with me by mid august, it there are no more delays. Thank you to everyone who has helped us through our year long journey, especially Mike and Karen. Good luck to all of you who have just recently started on your visa journey and to those who are almost done. Just pray everyday and never give up hope! Everyones days will come :star:

Congrats for your son's CRBA approval!!!!

Does your son has Philippine passport already so he won't need exit permit anymore?

Hello jamster0105,

We are also currently in the process of securing notarized copies of US Passport. I'd like to know how much would we expect to spend for this.

Did they charge you per passport page? Per photocopied paper? or one payment for the entire notarization service?

Thank you!
