Hello from the Philippines

Hi Everyone, just wanted to say what a great website you have here, and I am very glad I found it! I finally got my NOA2 from USCIS, and am well on my way to getting that all important IR-1 so I can go back to the states with my beautiful wife and son. 2 years here in Philippines is enough for me for a long time! I love this country, but I do miss things that are not so easy to get here - such as a nice veal parm dinner! Thanks to all who contribute and make this site possible, I have learned a great deal already in the short time I have visited here.

Hello dirtsquirter, this really is a great site and full of helpful info. Not sure it would have gone so smooth if I had not had found it. My wife is doing the IR-1 also and almost here now, her interview is next month.

Congratulations on your NOA2 and good luck on the rest of your journey.

Dave and Grace

Thanks guys! I am looking at your timeline joyjohn, and I can't believe how soon your interview is after you received your NVC case number. Good Luck at the interview!! I was expecting this to take until sometime next year. My package went to USCIS on the 24th of June, and they approved the petition on the 28th of July. I received official notice in the mail on the 4th of August, and now I am waiting for a NVC case number. The one thing that could slow it down is I need an official letter from NVC to send to Singapore to get a Certificate of Clearance for my wife, that will take some time. Just knowing I might actually be holding her visa in my hands before Christmas sure puts a smile on my face!
