F2A Expedited Case from NVC to the Manila US Embassy

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys. My mother has petitioned me and my father and our priority date is now current. It was expedited and after sending out our DS-230 Part I and II to the US Embassy, we received a letter from the Embassy saying if we would like to schedule a interview we should call them or go to the ustraveldocs website. We scheduled an interview online and was given an appointment on November 2, 2012. We were told to compile all the civil documents (Birth Certs, Police Clearance, NBI, etc) but I read on the internet that it should be sent first to the NVC.

First, Should we have our Medical Examination now? What would we present as our appointment letter to the clinic? How about our civil documents, should we mail them along with our Cover Sheet from the NVC? Your feedbacks would be greatly appreciated. :)

i'm a little bit confused. :unsure:

how was your case considered "expedited" when your PD became current last month (as of the Sept 2012 Visa Bulletin My link)?

your interview schedule should have been sent to you atleast a month ahead (early August) and prior to that you should have already submitted your DS-230 together with the civil documents to NVC in order to qualify as Case Complete.

Hi Dada! Usually to be able to get an interview date, you must have completed your case first at NVC. That is, submitting the choice of agent, paying the IV fee(immigration visa), submitting the affidavit of support form together with your mom's income tax returns and the DS 230 with the civil documents to NVC. When your petition got approved it should have been transferred to NVC and your mom had been notified. Usually few months before your priority date becomes current,the NVC will ask you/your mom to submit those stuffs I mentioned above. I don't know what happen with your case but because you were able to set an interview date, you can go to St.Luke with the printed interview date you got. It should show your case number too, if not bring a copy of your NOA2 too.

Has your mom submitted the affidavit of support to NVC? Ask your mom if she was able to comply everything on what the NVC had been asking. If she did and your case is actually complete. Those requirements are delivered by the NVC to the Manila US Embassy for your interview. God bless you and your dad with this journey. Hope you'll be able to join your mom here in the US soon :)

Back November 2010, Our priority date became current and our attorney advised us to file for our case to be expedited because of the looming retrogression storm projected. Mom paid for all the visa fees including Affidavit of Support, at Dec. 27 the NVC informed us that our case has been forwarded to the US Embassy here in MNL and further communication would be initiated by the US Embassy. But unfortunately on January, the worst happened and the retrogression happened. So right now, the papers are with the US Embassy.

even with the retrogression that happened back in 2010, you should have already received an interview schedule.

given the fact that you said your papers were already forwarded to USEM.

example: your PD already became current as of the Sept 2012 VB, you should have received your interview schedule (via email) as early as 1st week of August 2012.

NVC sends the interview schedule via email (if an email address was provided in the Choice of Agent form) to the petitioner/attorney (if applicable), and applicant.

anyway, goodluck. :innocent:

Some cases even if they've already completed their cases and their priority dates become current, it's not automatically that they'll get an interview date/letter due to the fact that there is a maximum number of visas issued on each category in every country. Some take few more months after their priority date becomes current to really get an interview date just like in your case. The lawyer of your mom tried to expedite your case but unfortunately it didn't really get the result you want it to be. The good thing is that you guys are almost at the end of the tunnel :) The civil documents they're asking you, some of the documents like NBI, CENOMAR and police clearance have expiration dates so you need to get new ones. They'll be looking for these during the interview. Bring these things with you even your mom's latest income tax return. There is a group here, F2A Philippines, who can give you more advice because most of them had gone through the process. Just search for them here at visajourney.

Now that you got your interview date, go for your medical exam but remember that the result of the exam is good for 6 months which will go with the expiration date of your visa when you got it after your interview. Enjoy your remaining days there in the Philippines:), until you take a vacation from here anyway.
