Somebody (Leatherneck maybe?) posted a simple line drawing of the Manila metro area showing locations of USEM, St. Luke's, CFOs, etc. with street names.

I saved the link somewhere but can't find it now. Arrgghh!! My fiancee has never been to Manila and wants to use the pic for reference.

Can someone please post it again so that I can save it to my computer?

Many thanks!


May your visa journey be smooth and speedy.

Thanks! I think the first one is the map my fiancee was asking about. When we chat tonight I'll have her check it out.

The Google map is very helpful too.

Thanks again.

If your fiancée ever receives the snail mail from the Embassy informing her that she's eligible to schedule an interview and giving her interview instructions, there's a map at the bottom of the letter. It's the same map that ShawnKJuliet linked you to.

Click here to see it.

However, don't wait around to receive the Embassy's snail mail because, as some have found out, it may never arrive.

Does anyone actually get an initial letter from the embassy any longer? My wife called the embassy because the online appointment letter dropped part of her passport number in one part, had it on the bar code though. While verifying her appointment letter would be ok, she asked about getting the letter and the person said they didn't send them any longer. Not sure if it was a real answer or an excuse though.

I saw a couple of references to the "eligibility" letter as recently as a month or two ago here on VJ. One poster said they received the snail mail from the Embassy after they had already completed their interview. The other poster said they received the letter after they were already in the U.S.! Some people never receive it probably due to the notorious inefficiency of the Philippines Postal Service.

I'm thinking that the Embassy still sends them out because not everyone is hooked up to an immigration website like VJ where people know not to wait for it and they schedule their interview appointment long before the letter arrives.

The eligibility letter is still on the Embassy's website, and it was updated last month to reflect the new visa fee.

Maybe the Embassy is confusing the eligibility letter with the appointment letter they used to email/snail mail to the visa applicant.

My wife never received the letter, but always got her mail unless it looked like a card from the USA. After all cards from the USA always have money in them :rofl:

That does make sense about the appointment letter confusion. If you do it online you don't need the letter because you're supposed to print it out.
