Go ahead and pay or your VISA and schedule your interview if you have your MNL case number. It will be at least 3 weeks before the interview. They should have all paperwork by then. Your fiancee should do her St. likes medical at least 2 weeks before the interview date. Good Luck.

Once you have your MNL # you are good to go! Head over to BPI with passport, pay the visa fee then between 4 and 24 hours (we waited a day before we could schedule online) later you can schedule your inteview

Here is the embassy letter with everything you need to complete

Once you have your interview scheduled online print out a couple copies of the confirmation page, you will need one for St. Luke's when doing the medical

You can pre-register online with St. Luke's to save time.

Lastly will be doing the CFO

I used our NOA1 date and this worked. When we received the e-mail from the NVC that they sent our case to the embassy, the Priority date was 3 days after I sent in the I-129. SO probaly the date they received our packet at the Texas lockbox is the Priority date.
