Need passport and documents returned.

Our K1 Visa was already approved and the US Embassy Manila kept her passport until we provided a few extra documents, at which time they would  send her the K-1 Visa attached to the passport.

We then decided to not get married and broke off our engagement.

We didn't want to defraud the government so we cancelled the entire K1 petition with a letter signed by both of us and submitted to the US Embassy Manila. They received it.

Now we cannot get her passport or documents back. We've tried calling the help center and emailing the US Embassy several times, to no avail.

Can she just walk into the u.s. embassy, Manilla and request her passport be returned to her with the accompanying documents? Because that's what we're at the point of doing because nothing else works.

So the question is can she just walk in and get her passport returned to her ?Thank you in advance for your responses.

It's likely to be a waiting game according to what I have seen on the site here as other said.

 

As long the petition cancellation was submitted, it'll stop the process but may take a few days.

They will not let her in to the embassy without an appointment.

Not yet.

But just last night I made my third call to the US Embassy Manila help center.

This time she actually gave me the address of a 2GO office where the passport would be sent,  if the US Embassy does indeed decide to send it. They're going to email us with a tracking number. .....maybe. I'm skeptical.

Why the previous helpers at the helpline didn't do this. 

As you know it's extremely difficult to replace lost documents in the Philippines.

I even asked if she could pick them up at the embassy herself but she said its not possible. The embassy is literally only for people seeking visas who have appointments.

This phone call to their helpline seemed a little bit more optimistic because I was much more assertive, but we'll see how it goes. Thank you for your reply.

Thank  you Jimmy for the response 

I hope she will get her passport soon, she will be stuck in my country if she cant get her passport,  its not US  government  property also.  Do you think there is a chance of k1 visa approval  if someone would apply for her? 

Thanks

Inday.

The reason they kept her passport in the first place was because they were about to approve the K-1 Visa as soon as we provided two more simple documents. But then our engagement ended.

I had to do the right thing and inform the US Embassy. The K-1 Visa is only for people who are engaged. I wanted to preserve the integrity of the US Visa system by telling 100% the truth all the time. And that's what we did.

Thank you
