Today I spoke with the NVC and they issued us the Case number and said that the package was sent to manila today. So whats next?

Do we wait for her to receive notice from Manila? We have started the DS-160 online and the Scheduling form. Do we wait until Manila receives the package to schedule and pay for Visa fee?

Thanks in advance

On the St Luke site it states we need:

3 copies of NVC letter/email when MNL# is assigned ( SLEC requires the NVC letter/email OR the appointment confirmation letter from the embassy that lists the beneficiary's name ).

Since she hasn't received the Letter yet from manila (package just was sent yesterday). How far out should we schedule the interview?

SLEC is not asking for the (worthless) letter that USEM mails out that states "you are ready to start the visa process", it is asking for the appointment confirmation email/letter - you will print this out AFTER you schedule your interview online. You need either the NVC letter/email or the appointment confirmation email/letter

I suggest scheduling the interview about 4-5 weeks out from when NVC mails the case file to USEM.

I apologize for using this thread to post my concern.

I am applying for a K1 Visa. I now have my MNL case number. When I checked online, my application status is now 'Ready' and it was updated on Sep 30 2014. I called US Embassy Manila to ask what's the next step. The agent told me to wait for an ELIGIBILITY LETTER/NOTIFICATION from the US Embassy Manila. She said it will be sent to me through email and/or physical letter. It's been almost a month and I haven't received any notification yet. I asked the agent if I can proceed to scheduling for an interview appointment even without that notification and she answered that it will be at my discretion. She also stated that the US Embassy Manila has the right to cancel my appointment if I have scheduled it prior to receiving that Eligibility Notification. She explained that the Eligibility Notification is like a "Go Signal" that I can proceed to scheduling.

My questions: Has anyone scheduled an appointment for interview prior to receiving the eligibility notification from US Embassy Manila? Was it successful or were you asked to come back again? How does an Eligibility Notification look like? How long should I wait for that notification?

Thank you all!

I agree with Hank, it's time to get the ball rollin!

I didn't wait for the said eligibility letter.. So long as you have your MNL case number then you're good to go ;) The US embassy will only ask you for your DS-160 form and your proof of payment before you can enter their office. I was not asked for such letter though and YES it was successful :D
