Consulate Review: Manila, Philippines
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : March 19, 2013
Embassy Review : Everything went well for the most part.... a bit chaotic in the beginning -- being herded like cattle by the guards outside into lines. Be aware that non-US citizens are NOT allowed to bring any kind of cellphone into the Embassy. There are people (non-US Embassy employees) that offer to "hold" your cellphones for you for a price of 200pesos. Sounded a bit sketchy to me. Luckily I (the US Petitioner) was allowed to bring our cellphones inside the Embassy and check them with the guard...otherwise we would have just taken them back to our car. To it's best to just leave them at home or the hotel to avoid any confusion.
Once inside, things were OK... YES, a TON of waiting... Most of the officials were very polite and helpful. The man who did my husband's biometrics was very grumpy (even seemed a bit hung-over)... so I quickly prayed that we would not have to deal with him again...and luckily we didn't. There are many "visa greeters" there who are readily able to answer any questions you may have; they even assisted a gentleman whose child was hiding. All in all a very comfortable Embassy experience.
Rating : Good

*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
