Cebu Delivery after Interview: How Long was it for YOU?

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

This post is ONLY for people who had their interview at Manila and then selected to have their passport delivered to Cebu.  In our case, we decided to have the passport delivered to Cebu City's SM City Mall location for pickup.

 

**IF** you had your interview in 2019 or 2018 and selected delivery to *CEBU*, how long between Manila Interview and actual delivery?

 

Please, for once (this forum gets way too many distractions) only reply with factual replies like "we had delivery to Cebu and it took (x) days."  Thanks!

I guess you are hoping those from CEBU are still on the forum to answer your question.  Most that come here disappear after they get their visa.

 

Embassy states 5-10 business days for visa package delivery  AFTER it is issued and handed off to 2GO (not from interview day).    What one person experiences for a visa delivery time frame may have very little relation to what the next person experience.

 

"Are we there yet??!"

If I were a wizard, and I'm not, I'd say that the answers given by @payxibka and @Hank_ are something that should be taken as your answer. Your mileage may vary.

About a week and a half.

 

A week in, she got a text from 2go that her visa was ready. She went to SM City Cebu only to be told her visa wasn't ready yet, and that the text she got was a notification from Manila. 

 

Way to be efficient.

Agree with this. Mine took at least 10 days to have it available for pick up in Cebu.

We had delivery to Cebu and it took 5 business days.

 

If I might ask, how recent was your pickup?

 

Trying to pull of a miracle.  I can't be there for her interview (her Dad is escorting her) but do plan to be there 2 weeks later to travel back to the US with her on my way back from Saudi.  If it works out, great.  I won't book our tickets until the week prior just in case I'm going home alone.

 

Thanks all for the factual replies.  It was about as expected.
