  1. Another one, sorry! Most topics here regarding the seminar discuss the K visas but hopefully someone can enlighten me regarding an IR-2 visa. How long does it take to schedule a peer counseling session? I've read horror stories of 2-4 months waiting time for a PDOS slot, is it the same for the counseling? I'm imagining yes because there are lesser slots but then again there may be less emigrating children. You also can't book a session ahead of time because you need to show your visa in order to schedule one. I just want to know how long this may delay my travel. Thanks!! ❤️
  2. Hello im filling out the cfo form. What do you put in 'NEAREST RELATIVES...IN THE PHILIPPINES'? I tried not to put anything in there but it requires tel number and email. What should i do?
  3. Hi guys, I have read some threads about this but I am still confuse. So, which is which? Should I only get GCP? or should I get both GCP and PDOS? I believe they are both under CFO (Commision of Filipinos Overseas) right? Thanks!
  4. Hi all. I am kinda trying to cut corners to make things fast. I am still waiting for my mom's visa to be issued and delivered. She only needs a sticker since she will come on IR5 visa. Will I have to wait for a soonest available date or can I set a next day appointment. Thanks.
  5. Can anyone please share their parents' experience those who were exempted to attend the seminar? I've already registered him online. How long will be the wait for him once he is inside? Is it only a sticker? Thank you.

    Cfo pdos

    Hello my wife attended the cfo before her visa interview. Is she required to get a stamp and attend a pdos? I'm confused

    I have been reading here that PDOS can be done before the interview at the embassy. However, when I visited their site, it says (You need an immigrant visa to secure an appointment for your attendance to the country specific CFO Pre-Departure Orientation Seminar.) Is there still a way to do the seminar ahead of the visa issuance?
