Visa Fee MRV Slip

When paying the K1 and K2 visa fees at BPI Bank, What is required other than the printed out deposit slip receipt on your website? I ask because I read that you need to show your passport BIO page but we do not have the K2's passport yet, but we want to pay the fee now to get it out of the way. So do you need your passport when paying the visa fee or not? Thanks!

Only the deposit slip is required, exactly as it states on the ustraveldocs website.    A separate deposit slip for each visa applicant (K-1 & K-2)

 

If a BPI employee asks for the passport, ask for the manager as it is not required.

Most times after paying the fee it takes 12-24 hrs before you can schedule the interview

Hi! I’m not as expert as Sir Hank but I paid mine without my passport because I didn’t know that I have to bring it lol. But I presented an ID. I think it was my professional license. 

 

The teller was very nice and said that they will only verify the name that’s why they ask for the passport and it’s not necessary to present. 

 

Hope this helps! 😊

Verify the name?   There is no name tied to the deposit slip just the number.       ... welcome to the Philippines where they add their own "rules" based on .... ???   opinion

Lolol I think they do it for the receipt. But I’m with you when they make their own rules 🤣

 

reminds me when a friend who goes through the us embassy interview said that the Filipino assisting the applicants were more masungit than the Filipino consuls and American consuls 😂😂😂

You got to love it. Something as simple as taking someone's money (it's not the banks money), for something they need to pay (MRV) and the bank is authorized to except the payment on behalf of USEM and they want to make that person jump through hoops. That's one that gets in my crawl space and bugs the "ship" out of me.

We paid about 3 weeks ago at a BPI in Cebu. They asked for the petitioner's name, but did not request to see any ID or passport. They ended up giving us a our receipt with the petitioner's name printed on it. Just my opinion, but it seems like they print the name on the receipt for our protection in case we lose the receipt. In case you lose your receipt, I figure it raises the chances of BPI issuing you a duplicate from 0% to 1%. Love the Philippines.

That is just the "policy" of that BPI branch .. then next branch very likely has a different policy.     ..
