I-129F Approval

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

i receieved the I-129F approval a few days ago & i'm wondering what is the next step?

Congratz on your approval!!! :star:

Your approved petition will be sent to the National Visa Center (NVC) and then on to the U.S. Embassy Manila (USEM). It will take two or three weeks for the USEM to receive your petition and to enter it into their system. After they enter it into their system, you can pay the visa fee and schedule an interview appointment.

When the USEM enters your petition into their system, they are supposed to send the beneficiary this eligibility letter. However, they don't always send it. If your beneficiary doesn't receive the eligibility letter in a few weeks, just pay the visa fee and try to set an interview appointment online or through the call center. If your petition has been entered into their system, you will be allowed to set an appointment. If the call center script-readers ask whether the beneficiary has recieved an eligibility letter from the USEM, just tell them "yes."

By the way, you will be needing your MNL case number from the NVC. Call them and get it.

Congratulations on your approval! The guides are your friend to help you understand what's next in the process:


“Insist on yourself; never imitate. Your own gift you can present every moment with the cumulative force of a whole life’s cultivation; but of the adopted talent of another, you have only an extemporaneous half-possession. That which each can do best, none but his Maker can teach him.” — Emerson
