Well, for the last several days I've been trying to reach the US Embassy Manila to set an interview date for my fiance'. I tried using the $18.00 PIN via call center #, however keep getting the same problem.

After the agent is finished asking all the pertinent information i.e. case #, my address, name, etc...then my fiance's full name, address etc. They then inform me the system at the Embassy is being updated and they cannot make appointments at this time........"IT has informed us the problem would be rectified tomorrow and to call back." So, called back again and again was told the same thing now it is recommended to call the middle of next week when the system is undated :angry:

What kind of backlog will this create? Probably the same as Traffic in Makati on a Friday night!

Bahala na :bonk:

Good day..just give them a day or two then try to call back again..don't wait for weeks..we've been through that(a lot of us here though..hehe)..after many calls, at last, we were able to get an interview date..ours will be on Aug.24(we were planning to have it on Aug.23 but they said it's not available anymore..they let us choose from aug.24-up..)... :ot2: ..i guess they might just having troubles(just wish they still have available dates for August..)..if you want, you can call them from time to time and try..it takes one to be persistent(sorry, I even told my fiance to be direct&sound strict when he call..lol..it was a good try too, we got our date!!) :yes: ..just be patient..God will provide always... :D:D:thumbs:

Thanks for the advice :)

Just curious how many PINS did you Fiance have to buy? With only 3 calls per PIN I'm on my second $18.00 with one call remaining :(

Salamat
