From iloilo,. We arrived at manila sept 27th.. did my medical at SLEC sept 28th, got my immunization the following day 29th of sept.. (ill post detailed medical thing nx if u guys want to know too ..hehe) my interview schedule is oct 6, 2016.. 6:45am.. Went to US embassy around 5:30am.. theres already a long line, around 50 people or more.. there will be seats offered by the fixers, but u have to pay for it! At 6am the guard opened the gate, and told us that we can start lining up inside,. Before entering, bags were checked and DS260.. be sure to print out the correct DS260 (first page only,. Bar code at the bottom, not on top) unfortunately, i printed the wrong DS260 (wc my husband sent me via email) ofcourse the guard didnt let me get inside he told me that i need to secure the correct DS260 or else, my interview will be rescheduled! Damn that DS260!! I got scared at first , i almost cried.. but theres dis lady fixer who helped me, she asked me she can print out my ds260 but i have to pay P400.. its expensive but i dnt have a choice! In less than 5 mins, viola!! She handed me my DS260 and paid ber P400.. then i showed it to the guard and he let me go inside.. inside, u need to be sure that u are lining up to immigrants and not on tourist or seaman's line. In front, der will be a placard of the time of interview, just make sure ur lining on the right one.. there will also be ladies who are assisting us in lining up and we are told to hold our passport and DS260.. we waited for an hour, at 7am the line started to move.. i really cant see whats happening in front coz i was lining up the back.. am just blindly following the line hahaha.. when i got infront my passport and DS260 were collected by lady.. asked my name.. then put a sticker on my DS260 and she put my passport inside the ziplock and she gave it back to me and instructed to go inside.. went inside, and theres 2lines for inspection.. like the scnner thing. Then after that u will be instructed my a lady which row u will be seated.. and that will serve as ur line.. i was seated on B section.. they dont give out numbers.. u just need to wait for ur turn.. infront of us are windows with numbers.. first step is data entry.. theres like 10 persons ahead of me in b section. And there werw like 4 or 5 windows for data entry. Am not sure. I wait like less than 10 mins and twas my turn for data entry. Filipina officer was really nice,. Remember just smile and be polite!

Then the officer returned my DS260 and passport..

Now am done with data entry, i sat down again and was instructed to wait for available window for pre interview.. iwas kinda anxious for step two wc is the pre interview. Been reading a lot of blogs that step two will be like hell, lots of question from a filipina officer.. and viola!! Twas true!! Hahaha .. now my turn.. entered the last window..
