Manila Embassy wait time

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My fiancee has her interview at the Manila embassy on Monday January 12. From what she has been told the line outside is very long and forms very early in the morning. We also heard rumors that K1/K3 applicants do not have to wait in line but can go inside once it opens, because the line is for other visa applicants. I do not know if that rumor is true or not. What time should she be outside the embassy in the morning to ensure she get her K1 interview on the date of her appointment?

You don't have to worry because she won't lose her slot. She can be there 30 minutes before her scheduled time. Some people opt to be there earlier because they come from far provinces or they don't want to be stuck in traffic. Everybody falls in line. Once inside the embassy, numbers are flashed RANDOMLY so not because you were first in line it means you will be interviewed first.

Good luck.

No, that rumor isn't true, there is a line for the different visa types. The guards will get everyone lined up correctly. Only need to arrive at the embassy about 45 - 60 minutes before your interview.

K1/K3 have to fall in line like all others.

As typical in the Philippines, people love to fall in line. If your appointment is at 7 am ,I see no reason to show up earlier than 30 minutes, If you are staying close like walking distance I would show up about 15 minutes before 7.

Be aware there are a lot of scammers outside the US Embassy trying to sell ballpens or offering to hold your electronic gadgets for a 100 peso. Once you exit they will be long gone.
