Hi fellow VJ members,

I was ecstatic when I received my k1 visa but the smile left my face when I saw that the birthdate was wrong. So I called the hotline and was told to send back the entire package to the US embassy manila via 2go, with cover letter, copy of plane ticket and the form from website. So I sent it last Aug. 26. Until now it's still in the embassy. My flight is next week.

Has anyone here had to correct his/her visa? How long did it take and did you send it via 2go or walked in to the embassy?

Has anyone here had to correct his/her visa? Yes many have.

How long did it take and did you send it via 2go or walked in to the embassy? Both. The Embassy will direct those who have a flight within days to walk in and those who have scheduled further out, like you, they will ask to use the procedure your using. Sending it through 2Go.

You will have your corrected visa in time for your flight. Concentrate on your remaining days in the Philippines and enjoy your time with family and friends.

Safe travels.

Anyone there had a issue about visa correction?how long it takes to get corrected mine i was. submitted 4 days ago haven't heard yet.. thanks

No one can say for sure how long it will take. We have same day turnaround but we also have seen 2 - 3 weeks. You should start your own thread and not post in one that is old.

Are you in Manila? I would advise you to just go to the embassy for faster procedure. It took mine two weeks but I had to personally go there two working days before my flight (so I could attend CFO seminar day before flight) since they were not replying to my follow up calls and emails. They were able to fix it within the day (went there early morning and claimed the corrected visa/passport at 2go mall of Asia in the afternoon).

After a week if you see no status change, zing them an email (only ONE, no benefit to emailing over and over) and/or call the embassy.

Do keep checking status on the CEAC site.  USEM is usually fairly quick to correct the typo and get the package sent back out.   Like said if after a week and there is no status change do call and/or email.

 

Contact info is about 3/4 of the way down this page:  http://www.visaconnection-philippines.com/k-1-visa-application.html

Remember, Monday is a holiday, the embassy will not be open.  One more day that doesn't count.
