Windows 38 - Manila Embassy

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Anyone had an experience with Windows 38 in Manila Embassy?

I need to get my passport because they've asked me to have a re-medical. It has expired because our 221g took a while.

So, I need to get my passport for my medical. But the thing is, I don't know what to expect, what to do or where to go regarding Windows 38.

And also, is there a help desk in USEM?

Thanks for sharing/answering.

Sir, with all due respect, you don't understand. My 221g -insufficient income- took awhile before we've accomplished it- almost a year- so they are asking me for NEW cenomar, NEW nbi and RE-medical.

Thanks for the additional explanation. Now I understand. I was only trying to understand your situation so I offered some additional resources. My bad.

When you get to the embassy and show them your 221g that you received allowing you entry, there will be someone to direct you to window 38 without issue. Relax, they are very helpful at USEM.

I apologize sir. Please don't feel bad. I shouldve chosen a better word to say. I shouldve said: "I mean..." or something to make it more clear.

You are very helpful. Please keep on helping people like me.

Carry on. :)

Thanks!

I actually just came from the USEM. It was indeed very easy. Just a few minutes waiting.
