After I get my case number...

1. fill out form DS-160 - need a passport photo to upload....and print out receipt...this is the only form tat we have to fill

2. Pay visa fee of $265 at the Bank, but print a deposit slip before going there....i should save the bank receipt..need it for the interview.. - deposit slip can be obtained at http://ustraveldocs.com/ph/ph-niv-paymentinfo.asp

3. after paying the fee...i can schedule an interview online at this website... https://cgifederal.secure.force.com/ - i should choose Immigrat visa instead of nonimmigrat visa - save 3 copies of confirmation

4. then on interview date...i just need to bring all of these?

a. (DS-160) confirmation page

b. passport

c. birth certificate

d. NBI clearance

e. evidence of engagement

f. certificate of no marriage record

f. RECEIPT FROM PAYING THE VISA FEE AT BPI; ORIGINAL AND COPY.

Am I on the right track? Please correct me or guide me if Im wrong. Thank you.

1) Yes the DS-160 is the only form needed for the interview.

2) Yes pay the visa fee at BPI, and yes you need a deposit slip, and yes keep the receipt safe, I suggest scanning and making copies also.

3) Yes choose immigrant when scheduling. Print 4 copies of the interview confirmation, SLEC increased their requirement (I just updated the guide to reflect same... sorry)

For the interview follow the EMBASSY INSTRUCTIONS LETTER, use it for your checklist.

The embassy will not send anything out that is needed. Most never receive the letter

There is a link to the embassy instructions letter in the guide I link to below. Follow the flashing arrow, everything is there.

One caveat to Hank's instructions some have been asked from the bank for their passport when making the payment. I suggest you bring it along in case it is needed. Otherwise, follow Hank's handy dandy guide and you will sail through the process with little or no problems.

No caveat... no fish eggs either! ;)

Passport is listed as an item to bring in my guide... excerpt just for you. :)

Manila Embassy:

NOW THAT YOU HAVE YOUR MNL # (don't need to wait for the letter from the embassy )

(NOTE: When getting NSO certified copies of your Birth Certificate get a few extra copies to bring with you to the United States (no less than two). (You will need a birth certificate from time to time)

http://manila.usembassy.gov/kvisas.html

Once you have your MNL # :

You can pay your K visa application fee with cash or debit card at any Bank of Philippine Islands. Before going to the bank, you must print the applicable U.S. visa application deposit slip available below on this page.

For K-1 the visa fee is $265

http://manila.usembassy.gov/immigrant-visa.html

Take the printed deposit slip with you to pay your fee and PASSPORT to BPI. (wording sucked, so I just "adjusted" it, but it has always said to bring the passport.)

NSO = National Statistics Office. This is the place you go to get your NSO birth certificate and CENOMAR. In case it wasn't obvious CENOMAR = Certificate of No Marriage.

You do not need an appointment, however it will be helpful to fill out the pre-registration patient form 24 hours in advance. Its not required, but if you do it ahead of time you don't have to do it first thing when you arrive. The pre-registration form is listed on the left as ONLINE REGISTRATION.

The current fee in pesos is 11,025 php, payable at St Lukes.
