Needing to settle our nerves. Can you all post how.long you stayed in ready status before going to issued? Our interview was January 21 2015, 221 g for aka Nbi. Submitted Nbi and was relieved by embassy on Jan 28 2015. Our case was in AP.until Feb 14 when it changed to READY. It is now the 22nd of Feb with a holiday last Monday. I know.we rounding the corner but just need a little reassurance.

we're on the same boat as you. However, we're stuck at AP. Emabssy received missing documents on 17th and our case was touched on the 18th and 19th. Until today we're still on AP. I'm wishing to get issued soon, too. When the embassy received your NBI, did your AP status get updated, too? How many AP updates did you get before it became ready? Thanks.

After the embassy received the document,we stayed in AP for.22 days,then the case was updated to ready. We have been in ready status for a week now. Our case was not touched except when the received the document and then once on Feb 14th. Now we are just waiting

And praying. I know patience is everything now,but the anticipation of being together......

Patience, patience, patience. 221g for documents always slows things down dramatic.

Hi :) mine still in Ready case :( last update is Feb 17 and I'm approaching the 2nd week of processing. As much as I wanted to call USEM, I'm controlling myself. I remember the NBI guy told me not call USEM regarding NBI matters.

Praying for your status to be issued soon :)

hi.. may I ask whats the issue about nbi with aka. is it only for people that once married or any person? thank you.

Please do not hi-jack someone else's thread. Begin your question in a new thread created from the front page of the forum.

To answer your questions everyone can have an issue. First things first, if you are single your aka's will be your name and any other name you may have used. If you have used no other names then submit your birth given name.

If you have been married before than your NBI must be in your maiden name, any other names you have used and your married name.

The correct format is: FIRST NAME, SURNAME Y MIDDLE NAME. The "y" or "nee" refers to the maiden name.

Another correct format could be LAST NAME, FIRST NAME Y MIDDLE NAME

NBI CLEARANCE (Green Form): Applicants aged 16 years and older must have a valid Record Clearance (for travel abroad purposes) from the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI). Clearances should be in the applicant’s current name, birth certificate name, maiden name, married name, and any aliases or nicknames ever used, including different spellings of all names ever used. An official letter of explanation from the NBI is required for any notation of “No criminal record”, or "No pending case”. For immigration purposes, an NBI clearance is considered valid only for one year from the date it is issued. You may contact NBI at (632) 523-82-31 to 38. The NBI website is http://www.nbi.gov.ph.

Hello Babylovej, we called the embassy today just incase we might get some info. Wish we had not. I think it irritates them,but...they told us to call each week if the status hasn't changed. Greenbaum and Hank have said it best. Patience. And they are right. I am sure we will be issued soon. It appears after taking data from other posts that things are done on a batch. Ready status at our dates should show something in another week if not this week. We are just thankful that this is coming to an end and we are about to start again once Maricel and Apollo reach the states. :) it will happen soon.

Hi Oatmeal, greenbaum pretty much summed it up. Make sure to follow his suggestion. The Nbi told us we didn't need the one,even though we asked for it and It was posted in the guide on Vj. Instead of insisting to get each name, we took the Nbi suggestion which was," if you need it later,we can do it when the embassy asks" it cost us a 221g. Follow Hank and Greenbaums suggestions ok?

Embassy instructions letter states to get an NBI with AKA for any names used, don't have to be married or had been married to need an AKA
