Hello everyone! I've already filled out the forms and collected all documents needed for the K1 process but before I send it out ( I plan to send it out next month) I just want to verify something so that I can make any changes needed prior to filing.

My fiance is a Philippine citizen but he is currently working in Doha, Qatar. Should I just continue on and file the application while he is in Qatar and once NOA2 comes, he'll resign from his job in Qatar and fly back to the Philippines to continue the process OR should he just continue the process in Qatar?(medical, interview, etc.) He works in a private company and his boss isn't the understanding type so I thought his boss might make it hard on him if he needs to take days off to do his part of the process. Which do you think is the best option? Should he fly back to the Philippines once NOA2 arrives or should he just stay in Qatar and continue the process there? Please help. Thank you.

The whole process can be done in Qatar. On all forms where it asks for the beneficiary's address, use the address in Qatar.

If you feel his boss will cause issues, the process once you have the MNL # to interview time can be done it about a month, so if it would not cause a financial issue have your fiance "retire" early... just my opinion.

If you decide to return to the Phils, remember to request a police certificate before leaving.... just a thought.

If he is legally present in Qatar he can do the process there. The only time it will involve is the medical exam and interview, plus maybe a little time to get a Qatar police certificate

He will also need a PI police certificate, his birth certificate etc. Provided he has those or can get them where he is. So just decide what is better for him.
