    Quickie Wedding......

    Do are you saying.... if I just goto the Phil's to get married.... it is possible that we do not have to wait for 10 business days...from applying for license...to receiving it? And I understand we cannot have civil ceremony...until we have license in hand.

    Quickie Wedding......

    I do not have K-1 anymore....she came and went already. Unless she can enter a 2nd time....first K-1 would have expired Dec 20th.

    Quickie Wedding......

    A couple of things.... I thought there was a 10 day period...from filing for marriage license...and getting it? Followed by the civil ceremony...You made it sound like it could be gotten in one visit? … or possibly two visits..within 24 hours. If that is the case....then can't we just get it together? It was the 10 business day wait...that I thought was going to eat up all my time. Also...we plan on a civil ceremony.... I thought ALL wedding in Phil's....required the seminar (and family planning)? You telling me....no seminar required...if civil ceremony? That will also reduce the time. Yes...I understand I will need to visit the embassy in Manila...and like you said...gotta fly in there anyway. She is 31 years old. Thanx.
  4. In an effort to try and expose as little of my stupidity as possible....my fiancée...came to the US... for 30 days...and something came up, and she went home....without us getting married.

    Now in hind sight, we should have gotten married first... :(

    Well....I believe K-1 is only good for one entry …. right?  Cuz we would have had until about Dec 20th.

     

    So rather than do another K-1... it seems the CR1 is the proper way to go... But I simply don't have to time...to spend 2.5-3 weeks in the Phils.

     

    Thanx!

    Quickie Wedding......

    No.... we want to get married in the Phil's.... long story....ignore the K-1 thing. Or where ever it can be done quickly...so we can apply for CR=1

    Quickie Wedding......

    I just started a new job....and so getting time off will be difficult. My research says...it will take 2+ weeks to get married in the Philippines....which is probably not possible for me. I understand...there are several countries in which she could travel...without a visa. Do any of these countries....offer something like a 'Vegas' style wedding, where we could get married with ease....and not have to be there...for two weeks? Thanx!
  7. I think I know the answer....

    But a K-1 visa....is only good for one entry....no matter what...right?

     

    Something came up...and she went back.... We are still within the 90 day window.... Is there any way...to get her back here....other than starting over?

     

    Thanks.

      Process would take roughly a year.  Plus side is she will receive her green card upon entry into the USA, no need for AOS like with the K-1.

      OK thanks....

       

       a while back....I looked into getting married in the Phil's....but it has been a long time.... let me know if this sounds right:

       

      Stop at US embassy....get document saying...available to marry....

       

      Goto Seminar....

       

      Then can get married at justice of the peace???

       

      For some reason....I was thinking...that process would take me two weeks....(I don't remember why....if there was some waiting period...or what?)

       

      The reason I ask....is I have started a new job....and time off...will be hard to come by.... so I need to make a quickie trip to get married.... Can I do all that...in a week?

       

      Thanx!

      Hehe....I looked into getting married in the Phil's..... it looks like no way to do....in under two weeks... :( 

      That is gonna be really tough...with a new job....

      What about....flying her to a country...where Filipina's can go...without a visa?

      Is there a close country....where we can do....a 'Vegas' type wedding?  Hehhee….

      I am really gonna have a difficult time...getting 2+ weeks off.

    2GO Text message....

    Same thing with us.... got text saying it would be that day.... and nothing! So fiancée went to office the next day..... and is seemed as though they never intended to deliver it....even though that is the option we had selected. Just go and get it.... but in the event they do try and deliver it... make sure someone has a copy of the ID...back at the home place...lest they try and deliver...while you are trying to pick it up.

    Sending MAIL to the Philipines

    When it really matters....send via FedEx!
  10. DougNHawaii

    Visa Ready for pickup?

    Yes....and a day after you pick it up... the embassy will send you the tracking number....hehehe! (no kidding!) Yup....that is the only clue we had....

    CEAC status to VISA Issued

    Just went through this in the last couple of weeks....see my timeline... Yes...I also went to 'issued' in 24 hours. Visa was at the local 2Go office in 4 business days....from interview....hehehe....but 2GO (Vigan, Phil) was less than stellar.....finally just went and picked it up....on the 5th (business) day.

    Anyone done a Clark ext...CFO / GCP

    Just curious....have any readers done there GCP seminar... at the Clark extension? Drop me a note.... and I have a couple of questions. Thanks.
  14. DougNHawaii

    CFO at Clark?????

    Hehehe....you don't know me well.... But Friday alone....I called North of 100 times... And you guessed it.... no answer on all of them! (And yes...I am calling based of Philippine business hours.. ) And yes...earlier in the week...send e-mail request....and you guessed it.... no answer on email. How ever...I can not get past the part...where they say... WE DO NOT TAKE APPOINTMENTS.... In all caps....am I just reading that wrong? Doug

    CFO at Clark?????

    Hehe....but Clark (supposed) appointment page....has look liked that for weeks? You would think....when no one showed up with an appointment for a few weeks.....they might think something is wrong? … But based on the fact....they emphatically state..... No appointments accepted.... I think this site....is intentionally left this way.
