Okay so I have a problem. 

I got my visa last July 27. 

What I understand is I could open the plastic where the visa packet is to retrieve my passport. 

 

 

I ripped the platic open. It’s not neatly opened. So now I’m worrying if this will be a problem. My visa packet still looks the same, with a bit of crease on its sides. It’s always in the plastic even if the plastic isn’t that neatly opened lol. Now I’m at cfo and I’m worrying that they’d try to find the plastic of my visa, I didn’t bring it becaUse I didn’t think it’s needed... I’m so worried....

Zero issue tearing the plastic.  Only the envelope stamped DO NOT OPEN is to be protected, and for sure NOT opened.  Plastic .. no one cares.   And do not remove the Immigrant Data Sheet from the envelope either.

Thank you so much hank! I now have my cfo sticker and am good to go! Now i have to wait for my bro. His visa was delivered to Albay a while ago and we’re currently staying in laguna so they’ll have to send it via express at LBC tomorrow. I’m kinda worried because there’s a typhoon here. Do you think it’ll get stranded? Is it safe?

I think the "non-working" holidays slows things down more than the typhoons .. :lol:
