  1. Hi! Ms. Yuri Good morning or good evening. I’m done with my Medical Exam last October 14, 2015. I already have my Medical Result October 15, 2015. I only submit MNL case number “Ready” because until now not yet receive the Letter from the US Embassy Manila. My question is do I still wait for my Letter from the US Embassy Manila? Or Go on on my interview on October 26, 2015? Na approved kami last July 31, 2015. Nareceived ng fiance ko yung letter from the National Visa Center or NVC last September 4, 2015. Nagcheck f ko ng status first week of September, 2015 “In Transit” And then nag check ako naman last September 15, 2015 ng status “Ready” Because I called US Embassy Manila told me that if not yet receive the Letter from the US Embassy I may re-schedule my interview. I’m confused Ms. Yuri. Please help me. Thank you po.

    1. Hi sis. No do not wait for the US embassy letter anymore . It is not a requirement for your embassy interview. Also, some fiances do not receive a US embassy letter until they are already in the US. It gets delayed. So far i heard about 10 fiances did not receive their US embassy letter on time. here is your checklist for the documents that you need to bring for your interview. http://efilipinowomen.com/k-1-visa-process-checklist-for-interview/ . ONce may case number ka na, eto ang sequene ng mga gagawin mo including the medical. http://efilipinowomen.com/k1-visa-guide-whats-the-next-step-after-receving-case-number-from-nvc/ sabi mo tapos ka na sa medical so proceed to other papers that you need to gather.

      1. Good morning! Thank you Ms. Yuri for your reply. I already received the Letter from the US Embassy Manila October 19, 2015. Thank you very much po sa lahat po ng information about the K1 visa process I’m preparing now all the documents that I needed to bring on my interview on October 26 7;30 am.Maraming salamat pong muli.Think positive lang po talaga and pray hard. Hanggang sa muli po Ms.Yuri.
