Hi all,

So my mom just passed her Interview yesterday at the US Embassy in Manila :dance: :dance: :dance: They took her passport and told her to wait for courier delivery together with the visa. When she told me the news, I asked her if they gave her anything, like a packet or a slip of paper showing her Alien Number (A#) but she said no they didn't. They only told her she is approved. I was expecting that they're gonna give her some info like her A# because it says here I am gonna need it to pay for her $165 IV fee. So, should I just wait until they deliver her passport with her visa? And is she also gonna receive a Packet (like I did when I first arrived here in the US on a K1 visa, I had a packet to show the IO at my POE).

Your replies will be greatly appreciated. Thank you :) :) :)

She will receive a visa packet with her passport. The instructions to pay the $165 will be there. The A# is on the visa.
