Consulate / USCIS Member Review #25343

Manila, Philippines Review on January 11, 2019:


Review Topic: K1 Visa

Consul issue a 221(g) do to a missing document!
This is a K1 visa only for a single mother and Consul wanted to see child Birth Certificate, it does make sense to include, but since it was not required initially and we dont to like to "answer what was not asked" it was not include on pack nor available at the interview.

Consul returned passport, Form 221(g) and instructions on how to send the document as follow.
1. Request birth certificate to be sent to USEM
2. Wait for results
3. Send passport to USEM

But we decide to take the risk to skip/modify the steps and we did the following:
1. Request the child Birth Certificate in person
2. Send Passport and Birth Certificate using 2Go carrier

Within one week the consulate did the following
1. Received
2. Review
3. Issue a visa
