  5. We also submitted the DS-3025 along with the application plus a cover letter stating that we surrendered the original medical documents to the immigration officer at the port of entry. Good luck to us - July 2018 filers!

    Can we still secure a copy of the DS-3025 at SLEC?

    Thank you.

    Thank you. So a cover letter without the I-693 will suffice?

  10. My fiance was not handed an extra copy of the DS-3025 at SLEC; he was only handed a CD of his chest x-ray. He submitted the sealed envelope from the US Embassy at the port of entry. We are now applying for AOS, can we just include a cover letter along with the I-485 package explaining that he completed his medical and submitted all documents at the POE? Is there a way to secure a copy of the DS-3025 from SLEC via mail or email? Thank you.

    Getting Tourist Visa with Ongoing Immigrant Petition

    You are in the right visa category. We've had match applicants from the Philippines who were granted 6-month (validity) B1/B2 visa to take the USMLE Step 2CS and attend interviews. I would suggest you apply for residency in your chosen specialty in the Philippines while awaiting the results/decision on your Immigrant Visa petition. That way, you'll stand a greater chance on getting matched once you get to take Step 2 CS and pass Steps 1, 2 CK and 3.

    Getting Tourist Visa with Ongoing Immigrant Petition

    You could take Steps 1 and 2 CK in the Philippines. You have no choice for Step 2 CS but to take it in the U.S. and you have to secure an examination slot at your chosen test center a year early. I know 3 people who were denied B1/B2 Visa to take the Step 2 CS because of pending family petitions. I also know another 2 people with pending family petitions who were denied B1/B2 visa to attend an interview invite for the match despite having the appropriate documents and letters of invitations from U.S. hospitals. We had a co-resident from the Philippines who had a pending family petition but was granted a B1/B2 to take the Step 2 CS. With proper timing and schedule, she applied for the match after passing Step 2 CS and applied for an extension beyond the 6 months stay granted to her after she was pre-matched during one of the interviews.

    How much for fiancee to "leave" Cebu?

    You may need to contact the airline about those charges and inquire about the breakdown of those charges and whether the Philippine travel tax was already included. Two years ago when my fiance came to visit me, we bought his ticket online MNL - US City - MNL and we paid for taxes and fees. When he got to the check-in counter at NAIA, he was advised to pay for the Philippine travel tax before they could hand him his boarding pass. We just learned that the Philippine travel tax was not included in the taxes and fees that we paid online.
  14. If you will be flying with any of these airlines, the Philippine travel tax may have already been included but you can double-check it on your e-ticket or you can contact the airline directly, they can check it with your booking or reservation number. You would also have the option to pre-pay the Philippine travel tax upon booking online with any of these partner airlines. You could also pay for the Philippine travel tax online.
