Required CENOMAR for the K1 interview

10 posts in this topic

We are currently awaiting for a notice from the NVC after receiving our NOA2 last week. We decided it is best to collect all the documents on the checklist at this point. Reading through ph.embassy .gov website, it states there that it is recommended for the Certificate of No Marriage to be requested from PSA website and be directly submitted to the US embassy in manila. Does this mean we have to wait until our petition reaches the manila US consulate before we secure a CENOMAR from online PSA (NSO) and get it directly delivered to them? Thanks in advance!

Most hand deliver at time of interview.   If you choose to have it submitted directly,  you have no choice but to wait for the case number 


YMMV

Thank you!  We were just wondering if it will give us an advantage in time if we follow what is recommended by the US embassy itself. I guess handing it during the interview is a better way to go about it?

Do not request delivery from PSA for the CENOMAR or birth certificate, and yes I know about the statement from within the CENOMAR info, it doesn't apply.   When the embassy switched over from the letter  to the online checklist it appears that DOS created the webpage and they copy/pasted from some generic info, I found tons of bad info there in the beginning that I contacted the embassy regarding, much of it was corrected, some is still inaccurate as I gave up emailing with the embassy on this.

 

Collect all the listed documents for the interview, hand carry them.  There is no reason to wait for your case file to reach the embassy to start gathering necessary documents.

 

Per the embassy website, top paragraph:

 

Please bring all the required documents to your visa interview to facilitate same-day approval. Note that you risk SIGNIFICANT DELAYS by failing to bring all documentary requirements to your interview. It is strongly recommended that you RESCHEDULE your visa interview date if you are unable to bring all the required documentation below.
