221g for documents submitted at prescreening?

Hello everyone, and thanks for all the amazing discussion and help. We've been lurking here for the better part of a year as we prepared and now are getting through our K-1 visa process. The help here has been unparalleled, and if you just do your research, the process can be relatively straightforward, or at least somewhat predictable. I'm looking forwrad to updating our profile and giving back to the community.

 

Having said that, I was surprised when after my fiancee's interview, she was told she was "approved" but then given a 221g, asking her to submit a CENOMAR and NBI Clearance. The thing is, those items were given to the prescreener. Is this standard? Should we have made copies of those documents? I'm just shocked that those were taken but now we have to go through the process of acquiring those documents again. Seems redundant. Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated. I did not attend the interview or I'd have certainly had some more questions on the spot.

 

*edit: Oh, and the documents were only a few months old at most.

A new rule i guess they dont accept cenomar from benificiary it must come directly from psa to embassy(imagine some of us are out of country,how long it will take to receive a copy)

for nbi just get a new one this is the easiest document in the philippines

Oh thanks for the heads up. Should we have the PSA send the cenomar directly then, instead of taking it to 2GO with the 221g material? Right now we are still waiting for it to process. 

 

The clearance is actually not that easy for us, since she had a hit the first time and I'm sure will again. 

 

It was just strange to me that they took these documents yet asked for new ones. But maybe this is getting common? Not sure I totally understand it.

Follow what the embassy advised her to do.if they said send thru 2go then do it regarding to cenomar she can tell to the counter its for us embassy and they know what to do(online is easier) 

for nbi clearance bring the new nbi  and renew that makes it easy for them to process her documents goodluck
