Hello, I was just wondering if anyone knows of a website that ladies can post when their K-1 interview dates are.

I thought it might be a good idea so the ladies can reach out to each other before the interview to lend each other support for the CFO, Medical and US embassy interview.

Is there already a thread for something like this here or some other web forum?

Would any of the ladies be interested in meeting each other prior to their interviews?

I am the Male Petitioner so this would be to assist my gal in Manila but I thought it might be a nice idea.

Once you find out the date of your interview just post your profile name or date of interview here then you can all reach out to each other via PM or some other way.

Admins any thoughts or suggestions?

Salamat

Great idea but probably hard to implement.

Besides, finding an acquaintance in the throng of people at the embassy every morning, other than by chance, is slim at best.

My wife, very outgoing, just started chatting with other girls around her in lines or waiting areas at SLEC, CFO, and USEM and has become FB friends with 8 of them, several in Ohio whom we have visited.

But still a good idea.

BB idea meeting others in line or at appointments is a good way to meet others. My wife did the same, met some nice ladies and stays in touch with most.

My medical will be on Jan.12 and interview on the 22nd. Thinking about attending the CFO on the 26th :)

Hi,

I just looked at your timeline. It does not have the date of your NOA 2 (K-1 petition approval date)

Congrats on your progress.

Did you have to schedule a certain date for the MEDICAL on-line ? I've read here:

http://dennyeyberg.wix.com/filipino-am-visa#!medical-exam/c1el2

It seems to indicate you need to schedule in advance.

However here it says no appointment needed.

http://www.slec.ph/us/registration/

She scheduled her CFO for 25th.

It would be nice if you two could meet there at CFO an possibly talk before hand.

Thanks

Medical is first come - first served. You can only complete the registration form online.

The verbiage on my website could confuse you so I went ahead and re-did the paragraph and wording. Hank clarified it for you. First come first serve with no appointment necessary but to save time fill out the form and bring it along with you.

Oh yes. No date on NOA2 coz we didn't know we were already approve until we received our nvc letter. Up to this date uscis still says our case was received but w/ nvc, our case is already at Manila US Embassy. That would be lovely. Thinking about doing the cfo that same week. Did she got a morning or an afternoon session?

With CFO you request the day, CFO decides whether it will be morning or afternoon.
