Lists these required documents...

REQUIRED DOCUMENTS

- Valid passport

- Photocopy of Passport Biographic/Data Page, the page in the passport that contains the applicant's photo and information

- 4 pieces recent 2x2 visa photos

- Appointment letter from the Embassy or Instruction letter from the National Visa Center (NVC), if available

- 2 photocopies of your Appointment Letter/ Instruction Letter

What is the "Appointment letter from the Embassy or Instruction letter from the National Visa Center (NVC)" and where/how do you get it? Neither the Embassy nor the NVC has sent my fiancee ANYTHING - no emails, nothing to her physical address...

Is this what she will print out when she schedules her interview??

Well, if they don't send her anything, can't I just send her all the letters I received during this process? Like would my approval work in the absence of whatever has not been sent to my fiancee?

Responses greatly appreciated...

When I applied for the Visa Interview online they allowed me to print a receipt. We will use that on Tuesday when we go. I was mailed the letter from Manila, but my fiance never received anything. I think the receipt online when you schedule an appointment should be fine.

I'm the wife of an American Soldier;

I'm the hope that lives within him after storm clouded days.

The freedom from war that gives wings to his heart,

against all that we must face in this world.

A copy of the NOA2 and memorizing your NVC Case Number are the two things you only need. I personally spoke to a St. Luke's employee last week. My parents are going for medical on Tuesday even if I am still in the IV Fee Payment part.

Thanks all! So is it necessary to already have your passport when you go to the Medical? Or just the NOA2 and your NVC number? What is the advantage to going to the Medical WEEKS before an Interview? Unless she lives in Manila, that's TWO expensive trips... Anyway, we don't have an Interview scheduled yet, because we have a few more weeks before she gets her passport. Could she potentially go do the Medical and then go back later for an Interview, while we wait for her passport? Is there anywhere in Cebu that does the Medical? I've asked her to do some research on what would be cheaper, two separate trips there, or do everything in a one-week trip...

Its a must to bring the passport when having the medical, as well as the NOA2 letter or scanned copy and MNL case number. None in Cebu, St. Lukes in Manila is the embassy's accredited medical facility. I am not from Manila and I was researching and calculating last night about the cost for a two separate trip or a one-week trip, seems like the cost is about the same (although can save like 100-200$ if opting for the 1 week trip) but still it depends on which hotel you wanted to stay and where you came from. Found a cheap one which cost around $43/night.

I would suggest making the correction when you get there, let the staff know when you sign in that you made a mistake on one question.

I would also suggest when you have a question to create a new topic, then it won't get lost in an old posting.
