St Lukes Medical will this be a problem

15 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My fiancee doesn't have a computer so I filled out the registration for her medical at St Lukes. While double checking our paper work I see that I had her birthday wrong on the the registration form. I hit 13 instead of 14 on the calendar. I filled out a second registration to correct this . Do you think this will be an issue?

I would suggest she mentions it at SLEC when she turns in the registration copies

Your fiancee is going to need to get to a computer and printer as SLEC wants two copies of the online registration (the corrected one). Not sure how you will do that one with you completing the form unless you saved it to your computer so you can email it to your fiancee.

thanks for the reply. I have already printed the copies. I'll be in Manila with her when she goes for her medical so I'll be talking them with me.

You will not be allowed in SLEC with her, but you can chaperone her right up to the front door, no problem.

There are times you just need that computer, for example to get appointment for OFW. Will you have one with you for her use? If not there may be times she will just have to go to a net cafe.

You can goto USEM with her and even participate in the interview. Just remember you can't take your cellphone inside with you. (Cell phone is allowed in SLEC).

With today's technology and most PI cities have internet cafe's, you should be able to get through this whole process without any problems. I'd suggest the following to ease that process.

Get a dropbox account and this will allow you to complete, provide scanned copies of official documents or update forms as you go along to your fiancée. She can go to a net café and access the DP account and print the documents you have dropped into the box from the net computer.

Another handy item, we used a folder with many pockets to store the documents and to keep everything organized and available if asked by government officials. You will have so many documents that thumbing through them the traditional, with them all in a stack with no rhyme or reason, will only slow you down, it adds undo pressure and of course everyone's BP goes up.

As Hank said, going through the interview at USEM is priceless. I accompanied my family and was thrilled to see the process. I now have a better understanding of what the employees of USEM go through from day to day which only added to my knowledge, and caused me to be more patient.

Good luck

She does go to the internet cafe when she has to but those near her are very hot and very noisy. dropbox is a good idea, I use it all the time.

We are using a folder with multiple pockets, each section clearly marked. Thanks for the advic!

Not sure why he mentioned OFW that is Overseas Filipino Workers

Maybe he meant to say CFO... It is required to attend a seminar and get the sticker in the passport.

If you are going with to the interview, citizens can take phones to the embassy.

Just go in the citizen door, and meet her on the other side. Pick up your phone on the way out. Can both go out the citizen side.

I do not recommend making this "the game plan", the embassy makes it very clear on their website and in the embassy instructions letter.

For the safety and security of all applicants and employees, visa applicants are no longer permitted to bring cell
phones or other electronic devices into the U.S. Embassy. Applicants who bring such devices will be denied
entry. Please make arrangements to leave your electronic equipment in a safe location off Embassy grounds
during your interview appointment.

For the safety and security of all applicants and employees, visa applicants are not permitted to bring any kind of electronic and battery-operated devices (mobile phone, digital camera, laptop, music player, portable game consoles, USB “thumb” drives, mobile tablet, etc.) into the U.S. Embassy. Applicants who bring such devices will be refused entry and will need to schedule another appointment.

I believe KISS is the best approach.

True. Best to not make it difficult.

But it is possible to take your phone or gadgets as a us citizen and check them at the guard house. There is a spot at the us citizen side for them to store phones and such. They stick it in a cubby hole with an id, and give you a number to claim it on your way out. Again, this is on the citizen side.

If you dont have a us passport, you must go in through the visa applicants side, and there is no provision for checking your phones there. If you do forget there are people outside that will hold your stuff for a fee. They are there every day, not saying its a good idea, but if you don't wanna walk all the way back to the hotel because you forgot you had a thumb drive in your purse...

Each time we've gone to the embassy we've left our phones at the guard house. For getting the legal capacity, to file the I-130, and for the interview. When we filed the I-130, the credit card processing machine was not working, so we had to go out to get the money and come back. I was glad to not have to go all the way back to the hotel to get my phone, I only picked it up at the guard house so I could send the money and we could pick it up at the bank.

But again, yeah, if you want to just keep it simple, yeah, wait to post your approval on FB till you get back to the hotel. ;)

Oops. Sorry my mind was a little fogged. CFO. Candy had 4 OFW posts before she came here, so that must be where that stray thought came from.

My mistake. CFO, not OFW.

Cell phone are not even allowed on the embassy grounds for the visa applicant, not just inside the building.

You are a USC, the exception to the rule, most all here are visa applicants ;)
