Recommended Posts

I got this letter via email on July 22nd. Does this mean my case is completed or still under review? Also, if it's case complete, how long does it take to get notification for the interview in the Philippines?

Dear Sir/Madam,

All documentation necessary to complete the National Visa Center's processing of your case hasbeen received. As soon as an interview date has been scheduled, the applicant, petitioner andattorney (if applicable) will be notified. The applicant should NOT make any travel arrangements, sell property, or give up employmentuntil the US Embassy or Consulate General has issued a visa.The US Embassy or Consulate General may require additional documentation at the time of the interview.

Got my appointment letter yesterday. It's for September 29th at 6:15am. :joy:

Question: My step-son is 18. All Filipinos leaving to live in another country have to take the PDOS, right? That's a requirement? Can he go ahead and take this while he's waiting for his interview?
