Hi,

We are trying to determine if there is way to find out if the embassy in Manila has our petition. Is there a number we can call? We know there are numbers to call to schedule your interview, but, not to check on a particular petition.


Thanks,

Lyn and Art

Same thing here... Left NVC May 13, arrived on or around 19th, but still unable to get it scheduled online or on the phone. The only number I have been calling is the scheduling line and they seem to be able to check it for me.. 1-214-571-1600, though a US number I think the cues connect to PI. If anyone has a better number, I could use it too!

Awesome. This number worked. I was able to talk to a lady, who looked up the case number and confirmed it was in the system, and that the notification was sent to my fiancee's address.

Now to pay the fees schedule the interview.

For those in a similar boat call +63 2 301 2000 extn 5184 or 5185 and give your NVC case number!


Thanks,

I called the US number and got no where. I gave them the NVC case number which I got from calling (NVC) and my fiancee's passport number, birthdate, my birthday, etc... They could not give me any information about the status. All I know is that the approved papers were sent on May 17th to Manila based on conversation with NVC.

I guess I have to have my fiance call the Manila number +63 2 301 2000 extn 5184 or 5185 and find out what the status is.

Thanks for the information.

Were you able to schedule for an interview already?

i still keep getting this error message:

"Please check date of issue of Fee receipt. It is valid 2 working days up to 1 year from date of issue"

its already been over 2 working days.

Awesome. This number worked. I was able to talk to a lady, who looked up the case number and confirmed it was in the system, and that the notification was sent to my fiancee's address.

hey guys,if your fiancee got a letter from the consular office(embassy)it means that you can now start paying for the interview then you can call the embassy for an appointment for schedule.that's what i did when i got mine.

my daughter and i had our medical may 16 then our interview was may 24.our visa was approved though i need have to submit an nbi with aka my complete name using with my exhusband's last name with of course supported by some court order that the marriage has been annuled.

but sucks,my name got HIT.it means i need to wait for 2 weeks before it will be released.that two weeks will supposed to be my visa released.

sometimes its sad to say that..there's always reason and hindrances to encounter even you thought that all documents the us embassy needed are complete.i have my nbi using with my maiden name.since it was on the court order saying that i can used back maiden.so all my application are single hehehe.but embassy is embassy..nothing to do with it :(.

so right now..im on the waiting period for my nbi to release.then will send it to the embassy together with our passports and the form 221g and a letter then will again wait for 2 weeks for the release.very heart breaking but its ok..after all the yrs of waiting...start from the annulment..application of the petition..medical and interview and hummm nbi and then now...

life sucks sometimes :(...how i hope that the visa will be released before the school starts in the states.so that my daughter can enroll for grade 3.
