it actually depends on when in the month NVC completed your case. NVC starts scheduling your interview during the 2nd week of each month to schedule for the next month. if your case is completed after the 2nd week of the month, you'll have to wait for the next month when they start scheduling again. so if for example your case was just finished today, NVC is already done with scheduling interviews for this month. you'll have to wait for the February scheduling. the February scheduling will be for interviews for the following month of March.

as far as how long before USEM receives your packet, i'd say about a week minimum. just depends on when they send the paperwork off with the courier.

So when in this process do we get the informmation about going to st. lukes for the medical? and i believe u must go to a cfo seminar to get a new passport and then u have to go again after u get the visa? am i correct?

You should be able to go to CFO now and have your seminar. Refer to below link for particulars.

Once you have had your interview and passed, you will get your passport and visa back by courier. No need to get new passport. When you have your visa you can go get your CFO stamp so that you can leave the Philippines.
