They will only send you the eligibility letter, sometimes not. But since you have your MNL case number, you can go ahead and pay the visa fees and start to call them for scheduling an interview.

dont wait for the eligibility letter coz it will take forevr to arrived coz they`re only using the regular mail, but since you have your Mnl case number you can start your medical already...then you can also start calling the embassy if you mnl case is already in their system this is the number :

US EMBASSY MANILA Immigrant Visa (IV) inquiry line at

(632) 301-2000, extension 5184 or 5185

US embassy number:

02) 982 5555 & 902- 8930

for visa scheduling you can call this embassy number:

then you can have your medical already and better fill this online appointment form in order for you to save time when you arrive at st. lukes this is the website

http://www.slec.ph/us/registration/.

and while waiting you can start prepare all these:

photos.state.gov/libraries/manila/19452/public/Revised K1 Instruction Packet _3__rtf2_001.pdf this is what we called the online K1 packet...

hope it helps...goodluck and god bless...

You will not receive anything concerning a preparation packet. You must download the state department website forms 156, 156K and 157. Complete them and print them on your computer. Those are the forms you must complete for the interview as the beneficiary. You will receive nothing except maybe the acceptance letter.

agree with the others.

It is funny, yesterday we received an eligibility letter saying interview is ready to be schedule, and it was sent here in the US to my address, my fiancee never has received anything yet!

Had we waited for the letter, we would just today begin the process of getting an interview and wasting 3 weeks.
