help ..no letter from Embassy Manila yet

18 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Please bear ...this is my first time posting here. We receive a hard copy of NOA2 last March 14....don't know how to track if embassy in Manila already got our papers...want to have my interview on May.

Here is what I did in order to schedule a USEM K-1 interview for my wife (then-fiancée):

> A few days after we received our NOA2 from USCIS, I called the National Visa Center (NVC) and got the MNL# that NVC assigned to our case.

> I called the NVC again a few days later in order to verify that they sent our K-1 visa packet to the United States Embassy Manila (USEM).

> A few days after NVC sent our packet to the USEM, I called the USEM to verify that they physically received our K-1 visa packet. I gave them our MNL# and they verified that they had received our packet.

> I called the USEM again after about a week or so, gave them our MNL#, and scheduled an interview appoint. It takes the USEM some time to enter a packet into their system. That is why it took a week or so from the time they physically received our packet until the time I was able to schedule an interview appointment.

The USEM probably has your packet by now. Also, your packet is probably entered into their system by now. Right now would be a great time to call the NVC, get your MNL#, and call the USEM to schedule an interview appointment.

Good luck! :star:

Yeah, i would schedule your interview out and then just do your medical a week prior. My wife just got her "packet 4" and if she didnt already have her medical, she would have had to do it this week (the letter said April 8th...she received it on the 6th) and interview is 15 April.

I know our case is a little different since we are CR-1, but same stuff applies for the medical/interview.

want to ask again...about the DS-157 form regarding work history. What will i put on telephone number if that number is not working anymore :unsure: ?

I'd put the old number, I really don't think they're gonna call your previous employers unless they have serious problems with your file.

Hint!

Take the medical ASAP.

Go Tuesday thru Thursday AFTER 1 PM. You'll beat the morning rush and get done faster.

Wear loose fitting clothes. Take 4 US passport pictures, passport [Make a copy] NOA2 and MNL#.

You can use cellphone inside.

Don't go when in your period.

thanks for the reply and the info of what's the best time to go for medical.... :dance:

another question: there's no need to get police clearance right if a person have not stayed outside her country for 6 months up? Just want to make things clear for paper works preparation needed for the interview. :blink:

If LESS than 6 months in another country no need police clearance. You need NBI clearance and a NSO CENOMAR

Go Tuesday thru Thursday AFTER 1 PM. You'll beat the morning rush and get done faster.
