Interesting 221(g) case - Please help!

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I was interviewed last year and we were given a 221(g). The reason for that is we need more income.

The thing is, my fiance had been in an accident when he was young. I met him in the Philippines. He was living in the Philippines for 5 years already when I met him. He is now back in the US for medical reasons. He's currently only on social security, which is big enough if you live in the Philippines. However, it wasnt able to suffice for the K1 visa- income requirement. Long story short, we were given a 221(g). Since my fiance cant work because he is considered disabled, theres no way around but a co-sponsor. So we opted/took our chance for a co-sponsor. We passed the documents as 221(g). Along with some letters and all that.

After 21 days under Administrative Processing, I received an email and this is what it says:

1. You need to submit the document(s) marked below. The required 221(g) documents may be submitted at any 2GO drop-off branch with a copy of this letter and the 2GO Courier Submission Letter. This service is free of charge. Log on to http://www.ustraveldocs.com/ph/, and click on the “Submitting 221(g) Documents” link to print your 2GO Courier Submission Letter.

☒ 2. You need to schedule an appointment for another interview, and bring with you the document(s) marked below. Present this letter at the Consular Ticket Booth on the day of your scheduled appointment.

☐ 3. Please come to the Embassy and pay the IV fee of _____ at the Embassy Consular Cashier and submit the receipt to the Immigrant Visa Section's Window 38

☐ Original and photocopy of Visa Screen Certificate

☐ U.S. notarized job availability on Company Letterhead from your employer

☐ Valid Passport and all expired passport(s)

☐ Visa Photos (2 copies, 2 x 2)

☒ Others: You may proceed to Window 38 from Monday to Thursday (except every first Wednesday of the month and U.S. & Philippine holidays) between 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 noon to pick-up your passport(s).

Has anyone experienced something like this? is this a good sign?

I hope someone can help me thanks!
