I was wondering this myself...My fiance lives in Valencia City, Bukidnon...We was thinking since I'm flying both her and her daughter to manila once we get an interview, would it be wise to just stay in manila and wait for the visa. Then more questions came up. Can they deliver to a hotel, is there a pickup option? If she could stay in manila we would only need to buy one way tickets instead of two round trips. Yes we are aware there could be a chance she could get denied also but I think we will have all our paperwork in order and we think there shouldnt be any problems.

It depends on how long you are willing to book a hotel in Manila. The wait could be several days to several weeks. I believe 2GO will deliver to a hotel but the Embassy will also give you several 2GO locations where they will hold the visa packet. Most of these locations are in the major SM type malls.

My fiance's visa was approved on July 6. As of this writing (9 days), no visa yet. She is worried that she should have filled out something with 2GO although she opted to have the visa delived to Laguna where she lives. I believe everything is OK and that she is within the timeframes for delivery but I wanted to assure her that is the case. Is there any need for her to be concerned? Thanks!
