Consulate Review: Manila, Philippines
Review Topic: IR-1/CR-1 Visa
Event Description
Review Date : June 1, 2017
Embassy Review : my schedule is 9:40am but was at the vicinity an hour earlier

Upon reaching the line number 3 on the entrance was asked for DS260 and passport, then was told to enter the door and have my things undergo the xray machine, then on the next door a guard checked my stuff, making sure there is no electronic devices etc.

then fell in line at window 41, the Filipino consul , who’s in the pre-screening,

Consul: you sent us complete documents
and you submitted all Original EXCEPT this scanned NBI
we require Original, (i was so worried and ask, but will i still be interviewed? and he said Yes just please send us the original via 2go)

He asked me questions quite a lot then he noticed i didn't submitted an original copy, i said, No sir, that's original, when i checked ohhh no, it was a scanned copy, then i was nervous and asked him, but will i get to be interviewed, he said "yes, you just need to send via 2go" (i mistooked the scanned copy as original as it looked almost the same )
Then he said please proceed to Finger Screening Window 43

After Finger Screening with the American who told me to first put my Left Four Fingers, then Right Four Fingers then two thumbs
he joked and said could you repeat that all again?; i said “Sure” with a smile,he said just kidding you may proceed to interview

then went to an American Consul window number 61
i greeted him ” Good morning” and he smiled and greeted me ” Good morning, how are you today?”
then started the interview
i said “Thank you”

He told me to register my address online on where they will send my visa and proceed to releasing

releasing area was asked for my number, name, address and told me to send my Original NBI. They emailed me an email regarding the 221-g on What should i bring to 2go, a courier slip (take note that it is free of charge)

After that rush going home to get my original NBI and sent it via 2go, when i checked ceac, it says administrative processing .

When I reached home on Checked online again

Last Updated May 17, it was on Administrative Processing,

Last Updated May 18, (it is when the NBI was delivered to USEM)

As of May 20 (Saturday) Last Updated May 19

May 22 – Last Updated May 22 Issued

May 25 – Visa On hand (chose to pick up the packet at 2go branch )

All in all, it would have been perfect, if it wasn't me who made a mistake, all the staffs, guards, ushers, filipino, americal consul are all courteous, just be sure to smile, and relax, compose yourself, and be truthful
Good luck everyone
Rating : Very 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
