14 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We just received NOA 2 today and are beyond excited. How many days should be between the medical at stlukes in manila and the interview at the consulate? We were planning on doing the medical on Monday and Tuesday and scheduling the interview on Thursday and attending CFO while waiting for the visa to be delivered to the mall of asia.

That schedule should work just fine.   Leaving a day in between is a good thing for - just in case, as the embassy requires a full 24 hr notice on cancellations.

 

You will need the NVC letter/email to complete the medical at SLEC.   The quickest way to get that is to email NVC requesting your case file number, info in the link below.

Once you have your MNL#, you can pay the visa fee.   Once your status on CEAC is READY you can then schedule your interview.   Info on the complete process in the link below.

CFO recently opened up more May openings, usually their scheduling is about a month out.   I will add a link for CFO info below.

Do be patient with NVC, it can take a week or two before they receive the case file from USCIS, then it can be another 2-4 weeks before they get the case file processed.

 

NVC will not reply to your email until they have processed your case file and it has shipped to Manila, so .. more patience.  You do not need to send multiple emails to NVC .. just patience  ;)

Noted. To have just gotten past the longest part of the K1 process, at this point I feel like everything should be easier now. Thanks again!

Yes everything will go much faster now.  Once everything is at the embassy you can be done with the visa interview in a month or less.

I got my NOA2 on April 22 and I am still waiting on NVC, but I did as Hank suggested and already had my fiancé start ordering her birth certificates, medical records, CENOMAR and NBI clearance why we wait. We plan on also doing the medical and interview within a week of each other.

@payxibka She attended a seminar when she was on her J1 visa. She thinks she can just renew her sticker. We shall see.

Ya we chatted on that earlier as I recall, being she attended the PDOS seminar before not sure if that certificate will be good for getting the sticker with K-1.   I know with the F series visas they have to attend PDOS and those are immigrant visas so my gut leans toward it will be accepted, but then this is CFO .. nothing is normal.   It will be curious to know. 

 

As said before you might want to contact CFO to see if her certificate is valid for that.
