K1: Pay Visa fee and schedule interview before DS-160?

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

We just got our NVC case number today and if I understand correctly we can now pay the $240 visa fee? My fiancee just needs to bring the case number plus a visa deposit slip (http://ustraveldocs.com/ph/pmisdepositslip.htm?amount=240&country=philippines).%C2'>

After that she can schedule the interview and then do her medical at St Luke's?

And he DS-160 just needs to be done online sometime prior to the interview.

Is that all correct?

Thanks!

-Loren

Yup. That is pretty close to it.

DS-160 can be completed just about anytime now.

Yes. You can download the deposit slip online and she can go to the nearest BPI branch. The visa fee will be pain in peso.

If she pays after 3pm, she can schedule her appointment at 1PM the day after.

For the medical, it says on their website that they suggest doing it 7-10 days before the interview (I am trying to find out if it is okay to do this a month before but I am not sure yet). You will need to bring your appointment letter btw :)

Yes you can do the physical one month early but keep in mind the longevity of the visa is six months and it's based on when the physical is completed not from the interview date.

Some people are saying that they were required to present their passport, along with the other items you mentioned and when they didn't have the passport with them they had to return another day after securing their passport. And, others say it's wasn't ask of them. Just FYI.
