Got the instruction letter from NVC via email, which I brought to the medical.

On SLEC's site, it says the appointment letter from the embassy or instruction letter from NVC is required.

to me

We received the I-130 visa petition from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services office at Embassy Manila on November 27, 2012, and sent the applicant an Instruction Package for Immigrant Visa Applicants Formerly Packet 3).

The Packet 3 includes a Biographic Data Form (DS-230I), which the applicant should complete and return to the Immigrant Visa Unit of the Embassy immediately. When the applicant has all the required documents, she should complete the information on the Notification of Applicant Readiness Form (DS-2001), sign it, and return it to the Embassy's Immigrant Visa Unit immediately. This notifies the Embassy that the applicant is prepared for the immigrant visa interview.

The applicant may also download the Biographic Data Form or Application For

Immigrant Visa and Alien Registration (Form DS-230I) from our website at http://travel.state.gov/visa/frvi/forms/forms_1342.html.

Attached is a scanned copy of Form DS-2001.

The documentation may be sent to the Embassy's Immigrant Visa Branch (Attn: Operations Unit) by fax at (632)301-2037 or 301-2591, or as a scanned email attachment at IVManilaAttachments@state.gov with the applicant’s complete name, case number, and current contact information clearly indicated.

Embassy Manila no longer sends Appointment Letters (Packet 4). Once we receive the DS-230I and DS-2001, we will send the applicant instructions on how to schedule a visa interview at the Embassy.

For reference, the applicant’s immigrant visa case number is MNLxxxxxxxxxxx

Now you're confusing me. Are you sure you're not talking about the process for K1 interviews? IR-1/CR-1 interviews are scheduled by NVC, not the petitioner/beneficiary.

Were you doing DCF? Were you filing from the Philippines with the embassy (DCF), or were you filing from America through USCIS then NVC? I tried looking up forms DS-230I and DS-2001, but nothing comes up. Also, the link you posted doesn't work.

The Embassy is very clear about this.

You absolutely need the appointment letter.

Just print it off?... lol

Nope. IV appointments are scheduled by you guys applying.

Mine was scheduled by NVC. I got the instruction letter with the interview schedule from NVC via e-mail. The process is different if you're doing DCF, I believe.

For I-130 cases, none of the official government websites say anything about an appointment letter being needed for the medical.

Is the appointment letter actually needed? If so, will it come in email or snail mail?

If you gave NVC yours and your wife's email when you called to get your MNL number or IIN number then they will email the appointment letter to both of you. Print out the appointment letter when you get it, and take that to medical.
