Yes, it would have prolonged the process/processing of the visa.
We're hoping I will be able to leave for the US on the first week of April.
I just thought I'd provide update as the forum and everyone was such a big help during the process
March 13 interview, visa approved
March 14 status Issued
March 15 has left consular section and getting ready for final processing (forgot the exact message, but basically getting ready to be picked up by the courier)
March 18 I tried to track my passport by sending email to firstname.lastname@example.org Status: in Transit from post. And also tried MNL case number* at 2Go website
March 19 By chance I thought I would look up the status before bed and used MNL case number, it said delivered/ ready for pick up
I called 2GO and they said it is available for pick up. So I got dressed and brought my ID and picked up the passport & visa packet 😊
March 29 CFO GCP
April 1 Flight to US finally
I know it is weird and my fiancé's family think we're pranking them 😂
Again, thank you Hank_ for answering all my questions.
*I used the UID to track my passport as well.
