    Jimmyzr1 reacted to ilikepotatoes in Huge mistake on marriage certificate!   
    You’re very welcome! We actually got married while I was visiting him. Couples can still do the ceremony while they are in different countries. However, they do have to make sure to see each other again in person before filing as evidence that the marriage has been consummated. This is an important rule not to forget!

    We had an error on our marriage certificate regarding address. 
    At no time was it an issue. 
    USCIS approved the petition- they aren't looking to flag your wife for being in the country without legal status- they just care you are qualified to petition her/the marriage is bonafide. 
    NVC accepted our documents. 
    The consulate issued my visa. 
    I am currently in the US.

     If you can rescind anything rescind it.
     Gather evidence and have a dash cam / nanny cam / whatever.
     Never lose your temper and every time she does keep a journal 
    Be the first to file for protection order as soon as she does anything like throw things break things, block you in when you try to leave, electronic surveillance against you.  Call the police and get a police report or two to back up your case.  
    when you are ready file for divorce and don’t Warn her about it just have the papers served.
     Protect yourself above all.  She could put you in jail and take everything if you don’t protect yourself.
     But get it completely through your head that it is over.

    Take it from personal experience- Enter the US after 2 years of marriage if possible.  Avoiding the Removal of Conditions will save you a LOT of trouble.....and money.

    I am curious how the mother in law survived before her daughter came to America?
     
    $700.00 a month is unheard of to me.
    For 2 years while we were going through the process, I would send my fiancee $200 a month and she lived like a queen.At $200 per month she lived very well and even had enough to paint her house and put a new roof on it among other projects. just my .02

    Take a closer look at that timeline. 2 years and 11 months after filing I-751 still no removal of conditions interview. 
     
    Slow roll the CR-1 process to get a 10 year green card after entering the USA.

    ABSOLUTELY INCORRECT.
     
    "LPR Since" on the GC is the DATE one ENTERS the US on an immigrant visa NOT the date of the visa interview. Only for those people who go thru AOS in the US, that date is the i485 approval date with or without an interview.
     
    For those spouses or children (petitioned by spouse/parent) immigrating with immigrant visas, the date the person enters the US matters not the date of the interview for 2 yr or 10 yr GC issuance. Of course uscis like everyone makes mistakes that's why they have given the option of filing i90 for free to get the correct GC in such cases.

    Jimmyzr1 reacted to flicks1998 in When does the US they ask to see your CDC vaccine card, and do they verify it?   
    Some of my BI friends have told me that during the first few weeks when the country opened to vaccinated travelers, there were a number of foreigners caught using "fake" vaccine documents.  These travelers were mainly from S Korea, China, Australia, and a few from the US.  All of them were declined entry to the country and blacklisted.  If your put on the blacklist, normally you can come off of it after a certain period and a "fine" is paid.  Im seen blacklist "fines" anywhere between $5,000 up to $25,000 (Im sure there have been higher amounts) however there is generally a wait list of at least 1 year to petition to be taken off this.  This does not include the lawyer and legal fees.
     
    I have not checked up on the status since then, so I am unsure if immigration has become more lenient or not on these entry requirements.

    @seekingthetruth Are there direct flights to Cebu, or do you have to travel to Manila first in order to get to Cebu? Because if so, Cebu's rule for allowing unvaccinated foreigners wouldn't mean much then.
     
    I am still unvaccinated and I choose to remain that way because I don't want the vaccine first of all, and I shouldn't have to take a vaccine just to be able to travel. Doesn't seem right to me.
     
    On the other hand, my girl friend lives in the Philippines, and I need to see her...

    I wasn’t 100% sure things would change when I booked, but had a bad feeling, was just waiting for my 9a Visa to arrive with my passport. I originally was thinking of arriving on February 11th, but changed to earlier when posts and videos kept talking about letting the fully vaxxed foreigners in. I just had a bad feeling something was coming. Even though the iatf-157 was saying we were allowed in before February 16th. I was thinking how would that go, when all fully vaxxed foreigners were allowed in. Then iatf-157 disappeared and I booked my ticket for earlier! Was slightly over $2034 from San Francisco through Philippine Airlines, but I bit the bullet and booked. I was a little worried up until the flight actually took off. Everything went so smoothly once arriving in country and everyone was very nice. Now starting day 2 in quarantine.

    Well, luckily today I made it to Manila, I think one day before the unvaccinated are not allowed anymore. I still have to quarantine in hotel for at least 5 nights, but I’m ok with that. Just wanted to get over here to consummate my online wedding so I could start US petition for her and her son to the US. Last month they said the unvaccinated had to be in the Philippines before the 16th of February, but it seems that has changed to before the 10th. Everything with Philippine Airlines went very smooth, except not being able to sleep sitting up and ended up with a sore back. Everything at Manila airport was super easy and was very smooth. They are very well prepared for the influx of people starting tomorrow.

    Hopefully they end this quarantine nonsense for unvaccinated people before December when we plan on visiting my wife's family. We are only planning on going for a month and 14 days in quarantine makes it where it's not even worth going. I don't see what the difference is between vaccinated and unvaccinated is considering the vaccine doesn't even work for the latest variants. The quarantines don't even make sense regardless of vaccination status for various reasons.

    I have read that they will have government quarantine facilities now, I’m not sure about hotels, like before. I’m just hoping after buying an expensive ticket, I will be allowed to board plane and once arriving, will be allowed entry. I’m ok sure now about the quarantine facility, if that only applies to Filipino’s or not. I have heard a few vloggers saying foreigner unvaccinated will not be allowed either after 2/15 though.

    I thought I read before that after February 15th, unvaccinated foreigners are no longer allowed in, on unvaxxed Filipino’s. As of the 10th it says all fully vaccinated foreigners are allowed in country. Which is why I was hoping my 9a spousal visa may get me in with the unvaccinated group. I think if I get there before the 10th would be the easiest way in my situation, except, I may not have my passport or plane ticket by then.

    Yes, I believe I would have to be in the Philippines prior to February 16th, so by February 15th. I also believe this only applies to Foreign nationals, not Filipino nationals, which I believe can still enter the country after that date. It seemed like after the Philippine government decided to let vaxxed foreigners in on February 10th, they just forgot (or didn’t care about) all of the foreigners in the process of getting a family 9a visa, especially those who weren’t interested in getting vaccinated. The only reason I am going back is just to satisfy this consummation of marriage requirement, otherwise, I had no interest in going back to the Philippines. I don’t mind the quarantine procedures that were in place before. Yes, it could be a hassle, but I just needed to take care of my obligation, to proceed with US immigration.
