If you just got your NOA2, you can be looking at another month before your case file is on its way to the embassy.

 

In a couple weeks email NVC to get your MNL#      http://www.visaconnection-philippines.com/nvc-k-1.html

Doubtful   ...   (May 13th is closer to 6 weeks)

 

End of April for getting your MNL# ... maybe.     Need your CEAC status to show READY before scheduling the interview, and that won't happen until the embassy has the case file.   

 

.. most likely June for the interview would be my guess.   You could get lucky ... 

 

Read the links I gave you.  Follow the process ...  (and find a four leaf clover)

You can also try calling the NVC and request a status.  They will give you the MNL# over the phone and let you know if it has been sent to the embassy in Manila.  You will need a lot of patience for this method though.  I called every night for over a week trying to get through.  They are open until midnight east coast time.  I usually started calling about 30 min - 1 hr before closing.  When I finally got through,  they gave me all the information i needed and told me our packet was sent by diplomatic pouch.  I had the medical exam and interview scheduled before I had the NOA2.  I believe the number is 603-334-0700.

 

Good Luck.

Calling doesn't really help to speed things up, it use to be the way to go but not anymore with SLEC requiring the NVC email/letter for the medical.

 

And the embassy wants the status on CEAC to show READY before scheduling the interview.   Getting the email from NVC is the fastest way to move things along.

Here is my timeline for reference.

 

Our NOA2 was dated Jan 18 and I received it Jan 26 or 27. My trip to PH was Jan 27- Feb 13. After getting back I waited 1-2 days and called the NVC and got our case number. The official NVC email arrived Feb 19.

 

By Feb 28 we received a email stating we could schedule an appointment. March 5 we scheduled an appointment for March 14. Visa was stamped on March 21 and it left the embassy on March 27 and on March 29 the visa arrived at her house in Olongapo.

 

The upcoming parts after the NOA 2 for me felt the busiest and you will both certainly have much to do. Schedule your CFO GCP if you have not already, earliest time is April 22 in Cebu I believe and April 24 in Manila.

I only suggest doing the CFO early because you dont want to get the visa but be waiting on your GCP. We are currently waiting until April 16 which when we scheduled it that was the earliest date out of all 4 CFO locations except Cebu which had April 15. At least 1-2 weeks before the interview schedule it so you dont wait too long.

 

Also it's not a guarantee that they pass her day 1 of interview from my understanding certain factors and if she is shy or timid can make getting the sticker hard. Only repeating this info but others here can tell you more about the CFO "sharks" lol

Most have zero issues with CFO, the issue lately is getting an early appt for the GCP seminar (K-1 IR/CR-1).   To save time after the visa is issued most complete CFO early.

 

Like mentioned earlier by myself and others -  the meek and timid tend to draw closer "attention" from CFO.
