When do you receive your K-1 Visa in the Philippines?

We have received our NOA2 (yeah!) Assuming the interview goes well, will my fiancé receive her Visa immediately after the interview or does she receive the Visa later? How does she receive it? How long does it typically take? Thanks for your help. :) Chris

My fiancee had her interview on July 30 and picked up her visa on August 13 at the 2GO office at MOA. However 2 other women she has spoken with, one who interviewed on 7/27 and the other who interviewed on 7/30 have not had their visas issued yet even though they were told they are approved.

So no, she will not receive it immediately after the interview. It will probably be several days if she is approved.

Mine took exactly 30 days and there was no administrative processing nor did we have to send any documents. We were approved and the interview was only about 3 minutes long.

You most definitely will not get it there and they still have to process paperwork then print the visa and put it in the passport.

When will the visa be received? No one knows. It is different for everyone.

Read the embassy instructions letter.

It's difficult for anyone to predict when you will receive your visa. We are in normal times and we are seeing 5 to 10 business days. But, we have seen upwards of 30 days to 6 months for some.

Part of the test measures in answering your question are, estimating the time it will take USEM to process, issue and 2Go to deliver. Since no one can exactly simulate all visa conditions, actual visa processing of each person will vary. As a result, when these estimated visa claims from other applicants are published, I almost always state the standard disclaimer "your mileage may vary."

The USEM states in their Embassy Letter; "Do not finalize arrangements for travel to the United States, dispose of properties, or resign from your job until a visa has been issued and delivered to you".

She receives it at a designated address that she gives at processing after the interview. She will be asked to have a seat after the interview and the guy "in the window" will call her up to verify that all the information is correct including the delivery address. There is more information here that may answer any additional questions you may have. Use the tab "Tracking your Visa".
