NVC letter

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Quck question: How long to receive the NVC letter with the MNL number? My fiance will be doing the medical on or around June 4th, and I want to make sure she has everything she needs.

If I haven't received it by Monday I'll start calling. I received the MNL number over the phone on or around May 5th.

Thank you in advance.

Has your fiancee scheduled her interview at the US Embassy Manila yet? If so, she can proceed with the Medical already. No need for the NVC Letter / NOA2. When asked about where she got her MNL Case Number, she can say you guys got it by phone.

She only has to show the following at the SLEC.ph guard by the door:

- SLEC.ph Online Information/Confirmation sheet (This is only if she registered online. If not, no biggie. She can fill up her information there. I'd suggest that she register online though. It saves time. www.slec.ph)

- Passport

- 2 photocopies of her passport bio page

- US Embassy Manila Interview Date Confirmation. (Either the email or the Confirmation page when she scheduled her interview. The one with the barcode.; This also has the MNL Case Number Indicated anyway.)

- 3 2x2 photos (White Background)

- Black Ballpen (Not a Gel pen or Sign pen)

- Payment of Php 9143.00

That's it. :)

Sorry I couldn't edit my previous post. The Online Registration for the Medical has the MNL Case Number, not the Appointment Confirmation for the Interview.

Side note: If you really want a document stating the MNL Case Number, You can do this through NVC Inquiry. Email them at NVCInquiry@state.gov and put your USCIS Receipt Number on the Subject line, and your name as Petitioner. In the body of the email, provide again your USCIS Receipt Number, Petitioner's Name, Petitioner's Date of Birth, Beneficiary's Name and Beneficiary's Date of Birth. Ask for the MNL Case Number the the Case Status if it has been sent to US Embassy Manila already.

They would reply 10-12 days after you sent it. So I guess, if you do it now, you'd have a reply before June 4. She can then print this out and bring this with her to the Medical. This is optional though. She can still take the medical without this.

Hi, we got the NOA2 approval on the 26th, got the MNL from NVC by phoning on the 6th, and then received the NVC letter on the 14th - the same day as my fiancee's medical.

At the medical the guard was quite insistant that he needed the NVC letter despite my fiancee having the MNL case number on the medical so that he could verify it, but my fiancee did not have the letter of course 'cos i had only just received it. In the end he relented and let her proceed, but for the people saying you do not need it i'd just advise that it will be easier and more certain if you do have the letter.

When she left at day 2 of the medical they reminded her to get a copy of the letter for the embassy interview - they told her the original is not necessary.

That was last week....

Right now she's at the embassy for the interview! I hope we find out today about approval....Wish us luck and send a prayer please smile.png
