Getting Ready for US Flight

I have a few questions which have come to mind trying to get all the loose ends tied up.

Olive returns to the Embassy on the 29th with her NIB Clearance for her misspelled name and she also had to get her CENOMAR for the misspelled name. When she returns these two papers to the Embassy and they are approved will she receive her pink slip tomorrow?

Looking at some of the other timelines it looks like the VISA/Passport are being delivered within about 3 days...is this about the right time to figure for AIR21 to Angeles CIty?

I am going to purchase her air ticket for Delta via Tokyo but have seen on a pinned topic something about an Travel Tax Flight to US which converts to about $40.00, does she have to pay this. I do know about the airport tax which is about $17.00? And no I will not book a ticket until she has the VISA in hand.

Also when she does her PRISM and goes to the CFO to get her passport stamped will this take her most of the day to do? I had seen a post about PRISM visit but can't find that now. Also can someone give me the cost for her PRISM/CFO visits?

We are almost there, finally.

Air21 is real iffy i would give a week leeway if I were you we recieved ours in 2 days all the way in Mindanao but who knows.

Yes she will have to pay the P1620 travel tax as she is a Filipino citizen plus the airport tax of P750.

The CFO at PRISM will take a few hours and the total fees are P650 she will attend the conseling session at the BDO building then go to another locatin for her CFO sticker register on the CFO website

Good Luck Justin

Its paid at the immigration checkpoint at the airport unless her ticket was purchased in the Philippines then it is usually already paid, if you used an outside source like expedia then she will pay that at the airport

When I submitted my lacking document, there was a lady in front of me who submitted a corrected NBI clearance. The process was the same for her as it was for me. She was told to wait and be notified by the Embassy. Visa delivery takes 2-3 days for the Manila area upon the issuance date. Since she's in Angeles, give it a week max.

She can go to PRISM and get her CFO sticker all in a day.

Seminar - 250 (2 hours)

Sticker - 400 (1 hour)

You can read my blog so she'll know the process and requirements. Good luck! good.gif
