I received a lovely letter in the mail today informing me that my I-29f application has been approved and is being sent to the consulate in Manila. I assume at this point we start the waiting game for the Visa interview. Some questions I have and would like help with are.
How long in advance should she arrive there? I heard that it should be about a week in advance because of the medical examination.
Where do we get the NBI clearance from?
Are there additional costs for this visa besides NBI clearance and Medical exams?
At the time I filed the I29F I submitted the proof of relationship, including pics, yahoo messenger chats a few emails, letters etc... Do i need to have her bring them with her again? or will the USCIS forward those items?
I do not plan to attend the interview appointment with Katie in Manila will that work against me?
Any help or resources that can be provided would be appreciated. I am happy to see this process progressing, the accepted our application back in Nov and its been an agonizing wait since then. There has not been a day that has gone by that I have not missed her.
Oh yeah one last thing, how long do I usually have before my interview appointment from the time they approve her application?
Thanks in advance guys I really do appreciate the help.
