Picking Up Visa In Manila

After doing a little searching on the topic I Just wanted to verify that they no longer allow for Visa pick up at the embassy after the interview, correct?

If so, is there any way that i can pick it up at the closest 2go location in manila?

My SO is from Cebu and she will be staying in Manila till its ready to be picked up. The only thing is we decided this after i set up her appointment and on the appointment letter they say they will send it to cebu 2go location.

will this be a problem? And does anyone know how long it takes to be able to pick up the Visa from the 2go in manila?

Thanks in advance.

like i said in the other post,i don't think this will be a problem because 2go will give a separate form upon visa approval at the embassy and i believe what you write there will be the one followed

Hmm yours sure took long, i was looking through some others and found "sheenaspapi" got theirs printed the next day and had their visa by the end of the week.

Thats kinda what im hoping for, if not then thats fine i will just role with the punches.

Still gonna have her ask at the embassy if they can, plus maybe i will call the next day to get a status.
