Congrats to you and your fiance for completing the first step in your K1 visa journey. The next step would need lots of patience as it is the waiting period. Your petition will now be transferred to NVC where it will be processed and assigned a reference number (I don't quite remember but I think this is the MNL number) then sent to the US Embassy in Manila. The US Embassy will then send your fiance a notification advising him to schedule an interview. The letter would have instructions so you need not worry too much about it. Then while waiting for an interview, your fiance should have his medical examination done.

Oh! and don't forget to prepare all the necessary documents for his interview.

Good Luck to the rest of your journey!

Thank you guys for the quick reply... My FIANCE has to obtain his passport while we wait and I have to get my letters from my bank for the I-134.
