Consulate Review: Manila, Philippines
Review Topic: F-2A Visa
Event Description
Review Date : December 20, 2013
Embassy Review : Questions asked by the pre-screener:
- My name and date of birth?
- Who is my petitioner? My relationship with him?
- When was the last time I saw him?
- When and how did we meet? When did we become boyfriend/girlfriend?
- When did we get married?
- Who is the joint sponsor? My relationship to the joint sponsor? Do they live in the same house as the petitioner?
- Do we have children? Where are they?
- Have I traveled or worked abroad?
- Do I have pictures of me with my petitioner?

Questions asked by the consul:
- My name and date of birth?
- Date of marriage?
- When and how did we meet? When did we become boyfriend/girlfriend?
- When was the last time I talked to my hubby? (I said "this morning at 3am, he woke me up!")
- When was the last time I saw my children?
- Do I have pictures of me with my petitioner?

That's it! The interview with the consul (window 62) was pretty quick. The interview with the Filipina pre-screener (window 32) took a bit longer because she was arranging all the documents and she also double checked the income of my hubby and joint sponsors.

The Filipina pre-screener and American consul were both friendly and accommodating. It was over-all a very nice and unforgettable experience for me!

*Notice about estimates: The estimates are based off averages of other members recent experiences
(documented in their timelines) for the same benefit/petition/application at the same filing location.
Individual results may vary as every case is not always 'average'. Past performance does not necessarily
predict future results. The 'as early as date' may change over time based on current reported processing
times from members. There have historically been cases where a benefit/petition/application processing
briefly slows down or stops and this can not be predicted. Use these dates as reference only and do not
rely on them for planning. As always you should check the USCIS processing times to see if your application
is past due.

** Not all cases are transfered
