    Josh and I met online since April 16, 2016 (US time). We were using this dating app called OKCupid and first met in person after 8 and a half months. It's tough to be in a long distance relationship, but once you're together... it will be worth it. #teamLDR

  1. True, but it will all work out and it will be worth it. I am not too sure about that. I'm sorry.
  2. Hi, I apologize if I haven't seen your message. They did not ask for it. Hope that you have completed all your requirements.
  3. Hello, they did not ask for the NVC letter. But just in case they will ask you what is the sundry card for, tell them that it is a requirement for you to get your police clearance from Qatar. 😉
  4. Hello, here I am again. So here is my concern. This morning I received an email from NVC (PLEASE SEE EMAIL BELOW). I have checked the status on ceac.state.gov and it says that our case is still "In Transit". I called USEM and I was advised to wait for the next email stating that I can already set up an appointment for an interview. Once the status is already "Ready" in the ceac.state.gov and we don't get the letter or email from NVC or USEM. Should I go ahead and just get a screenshot of this and bring it to the interview along with this email that I received today? Are these letters required to be brought in the interview? Or should I just wait for the NVC confirmation letter or USEM letter? I read a lot of people stating that the letter from NVC or USEM did not come. Just worried and I want to start whatever I can do from here on to avoid delays. Thank you. Sorry for asking lots of questions. I've bee anxious about the process. Hehehe. Peace! Dear ********, The National Visa Center (NVC) received your fiancé (e)’s/spouse’s approved I-129F petition from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). NVC will now forward the petition to the U.S. Embassy or Consulate in Manila, Philippines. Please note that the transfer process can take several weeks. The U.S. Embassy or Consulate will contact your fiancé (e)/spouse when they are ready to process his or her petition. Next steps: Go to our website http://nvc.state.gov/k1 to learn how to apply for a K visa and prepare for the visa interview. Please keep the following information for your records: Case Number: MNL********** USCIS Receipt Number ************* Principal Applicant: ******** ***** Petitioner: ****** ***** ******* Interview Location: Manila, Philippines Post Address: U.S. Embassy 1201 Roxas Boulevard Manila Philippines Thank you for your patience in the immigrant visa process. Sincerely, U.S. Department of State National Visa Center
  5. Thanks for this info, this is a big help. Though I am a little confused. Cos most of my friends who went through the same process were told to bring this letter of eligibility at the USEM. We got the case number and invoice number from NVC when we called. Did they ask for this letter during your time?
  6. We got our NOA2 on August 30, 2018 and still waiting for the NVC's letter. Has anyone already received it? Is there a way I can check this online? Thank you. 😊
  7. You're welcome. I just want to help out just like those people commented and answered all my inquiries. We're all in this together. 😊
  8. How to obtain your Qatar police clearance certificate when you're in the Philippines? 1. You can send all the requirements to the Qatar Embassy through WExpress (affiliated with DHL, they have different branches but they have one in DFA ASEANA). I called the embassy and was advised that the wait time for this process will take up to 2-3 months. 2. You're lucky if you have a friend in Qatar who is willing to process and get it for you. My friend successfully got my PCC in just 1 week! Here is the list of requirements I sent him: a. SPECIAL POWER OF ATTORNEY (SPA) b. NBI CLEARANCE c. SUNDRY CARD/FINGERPRINTS d. LETTER OF PURPOSE e. CLEAR PHOTOCOPY OF YOUR PREVIOUS QATAR ID f. CLEAR PHOTOCOPY OF YOUR PASSPORT AND RELEVANT PAGES g. 3 PCS OF 2x2 PHOTO (this may not be needed), The Ministry of Interior (CEID) used the photo I had on their system which was the one used in my QID. (But just in case, include it.) h. COPY OF YOUR PREVIOUS RESIDENT VISA ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- a. SPECIAL POWER OF ATTORNEY (SPA) to authorize the person you will appoint to transact, request, sign and receive on your behalf. This has to be notarized with a Certificate of Authority for a Notarial Act (CANA). Don't forget to bring a photocopy of your friend's Qatar ID, ask the lawyer to include his/her QID number in the SPA. You will also need your friend's date of birth, nationality, and address. *Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) does not authenticate this document without CANA. *You can ask the lawyer who will sign your SPA where you can get his/her CANA. FEE: 1,150 PHP for SPA and 100 PHP for the CANA. (SPA fee may differ depending on which law office you'll go to) b. NATIONAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION (NBI) CLEARANCE. Check the nearest NBI satellite near you. FEE: 130 PHP I got 2 copies of these so I can send one to Qatar and one for my visa requirement. c. SUNDRY CARD/FINGERPRINTS. You can get this from NBI or (Philippine National Police) PNP in Camp Crame. NBI requires an endorsement letter as a proof that this document will be used for visa requirements. However, Qatar and the US embassy do not provide any endorsement letters. If you have the checklist with you from National Visa Center (NVC), you can bring it there and they might give you the sundry card. Please contact NBI about this. I got my fingerprints from PNP, Camp Crame - Crime laboratory. Once you're there, you will be asked to pay the fee at Landbank within the camp. People are really nice and helpful, so just ask them how to get there. It is just a walking distance from the lab. FEE: 200 PHP Once paid, go back to the lab. You will only need (2 pcs) 2x2 pictures and the receipt of your payment. ------------------------ After collecting these documents, you may now bring them to DFA-ASEANA. (DFA satellite offices do not authenticate PNP sundry card) FEE: 200 PHP each document for 1-day processing. - SPA/CANA - PNP fingerprints - NBI (total is 600 PHP) *If you're willing to wait for the normal processing, you will only need to pay 100 PHP per document which will take 4 days before you pick it up. -------------------------------------------------- d. LETTER OF PURPOSE. This is a formal letter addressed to the Director General of evidence and criminal information. Here's a sample: Ministry of Interior Qatar General Directorate of Criminal Investigations Criminal Evidence and Information Department P.O. Box 23004 Salwa Road, Exit 15 Doha, Qatar Subject: Requesting Police Clearance Certificate for US K-1 visa Date To the Director General of evidence and criminal information: I kindly request you to provide me a Police Clearance Certificate for the purpose of obtaining a US K-1 fiance(e) visa. Please find my personal information below: NAME: PASSPORT PREVIOUS QATAR ID NUMBER: DATE OF ENTRY: DATE OF EXIT: I authorized _____________, with Qatar ID number: -----------------, to transact, sign, submit and claim the certificate for me. Please see enclosed documents such as Power-of-Attorney, certified fingerprints, copy of my Qatar ID, copy of my passport and relevant pages, previous resident visa and photographs. Thank you for your kind consideration. Sincerely, ________________________ e. CLEAR PHOTOCOPY OF YOUR PREVIOUS QATAR ID f. CLEAR PHOTOCOPY OF YOUR PASSPORT AND RELEVANT PAGES g. 3 PCS OF 2x2 PHOTO (this may not be needed), The Ministry of Interior (CEID) used the photo I had in their system which was the one in my QID. But just in case, just include it. h. COPY OF YOUR PREVIOUS RESIDENT VISA ----------------------------- After you have all these information, you can finally send it to your friend in Qatar. I used DHL, my friend got the mail after 3 days. FEE: 3,145 PHP ------------------------------ My friend brought it directly to CEID the next day but he was asked to go to the Philippine Embassy to get a stamp. He had to pay 300 QAR for the stamps. FEE: 100 QAR per stamp - SPA/CANA - PNP fingerprints - NBI I know, it is really expensive!!!! 😫 It does not end there... ------------------------------- After getting this done, he went to Qatar - Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) to get another stamp. Again, he had to pay 400 QAR. FEE: 100 QAR per stamp - SPA/CANA - PNP fingerprints - NBI - Additional documents -------------------------------- Then finally, he submitted all of these to CEID on SEP 11 and he was able to get the PCC on SEP 17. ---------------------------- After getting the PCC, he was asked to go back to MOFA to have it stamped. FEE: 100 QAR. ------------------------------ He sent the documents to me through DHL and he was advised that I will be receiving it within 3 days. FEE: 360 QAR ------------------------------- What an expensive paper! Wooooah! 😂 Good luck everyone! Hope this helps.
  9. Hello, thank you for sharing this. Have you finally gotten her police clearance? What requirements did you need for the fingerprints in Camp Crame?
  10. My fiance and I were so happy last Friday when we saw that our case was approved. Then the next day I was crying because we found out that PCC from Qatar is required. It got me worried that it will delay us in our process. My fiance encouraged me to trust God's timing and not ours. It gave me comfort and that took all my stress away. This process may seem overwhelming but it'll be worth it once it is done. I promise to update everyone once I am successful in getting the PCC from Qatar. Good luck guys!
  11. Hello Assad, not sure about the process of RFE. I think should contact USCIS to follow up on it.
  12. I think it'll take time for me then. But thanks. I would need to ask the Qatar Embassy the fastest way. How is your petition going?
  13. I have visited this site before but I can only find the requirements. The procedure is not included in the page. I think the safest would be to have someone request this on my behalf in Qatar. I appreciate your response. Have a good day.
  14. Hi Liflead, Thank you for your response. I have read this but it did not include how am I supposed to send it to their office. I guess the best way to make sure my request is monitored is through a friend in Qatar. But I will still call and go to the Qatar Embassy and check with them what they can advise me to do.
