Call the NVC two to three weeks after your approval to ask them if they did received your case and if they already assigned you a case number (MNL case #)... If you have the case #, pay the visa fee, complete the DS 160form then sched your interview at embassy. After you got an interview appointment you can schedule your medical at st Luke's....

The reason you don't want to schedule your medical this early in the process is because the validity of the visa is tied to the date that you get your medical (visa is valid for 6 months only from the date you completed your medical). So, if you do your medical in December and you don't receive your visa until March because of a delays then you have only approx. 3 months after in which to travel. Buyer beware. Schedule your medical two weeks out from your interview and you will be fine.

I understand your excitement grasshopper, but patience is going to be needed from here on out.

Follow Hank's handy dandy instructions found here http://visaconnection-philippines.com/#. Use the NVC to USEM tab and follow the steps. It will save you so much time and headaches.

Be sure to begin getting all your documents and PLEASE, PLEASE check that all the names and date are correct on those documents. If you discover a discrepancy now, you have plenty of time to get the document update with the correct information.

Yes you can pay your visa fee at BPI, get you interview scheduled (about 4-5 weeks at least from when you get your MNL # is my suggestion), gather documents as listed in the embassy instructions letter, and complete the medical at least a week before the interview date.

You can do medical now to get it out of the way provided you have MNL from NVC. No problem, easy.

SLEC wants to see the NVC letter or interview confirmation. Not having at least one or the other tends to make them grumpy ;)
