Recommended Posts

My fiance had her medical exam and they found a small white spot in her lung, they need to do sputum test now for 3 day and results in 8 weeks. Even if results come back ok 8 weeks will put us over our approval expiration date in January, is there a way to get an extension from NVC due to the circumstances? We dont want to have to start the process all over again. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Yes, it is possible to get the validity of your I-129F Petition Approval Notice extended. I thought it was automatically extended but apparently not always.

Yes USEM usually does it. But it would not hurt to shoot the embassy  a letter  requesting it to make sure. We did that same thing.  Always  better safe than sorry.

Once it's close to expiration send USEM a courtesy email letting them know  your circumstances. They usually automatically extend but a courtesy email would not hurt you.

 I think you should go ahead with the test, schedule and attend the interview without the test, then inform the consular at the interview that the results will be out in 8 weeks. As far as you have started something with the embassy, your petition will be automatically renewed. If you do nothing they will send you a letter that your petition has expired and then nothing can be done. Authernatively you can contact the embassy immediately and let then now what's going on and see what they would advice you to do....Goodluck

That is why specific consulate advice is important.   The OP will be turned away at the gate if they show up without proof of completed medical.

 

Manila automagically extends the petition validity

Thank you so much for your replies! So you are saying I should tell my fiance to schedule interview anyway and inform officer of situation or that she will be turned away if it is not completed? Sorry I'm a bit confused.

Do NOT schedule interview and show up without proof of completed medical.

You don't need to contact anyone,  however,  if you are compelled to contact someone,  it is the IV unit at the consulate via email

Each embassy has different procedures. What is good for Germany may not be the same for the Philippines. Which is the case with your reply. If the medical is not completed before the interview they will be turned away to only to be compelled to complete the medical and reschedule the interview. Just saying.
