Manila, Philippines: Important Rescheduling Procedures for NIV Applicants

15 Jan 2013

Please be reminded that even though nonimmigrant visa fees are valid for one calendar year options to schedule an appointment are limited.  The U.S. Embassy in Manila schedules hundreds of thousands of nonimmigrant visa appointments each year and we must accommodate requests both for new appointments and for those applicants who need to reschedule their appointments for whatever reason.  Applicants are only allowed to reschedule twice (not including the initial appointment) without penalty.  If the second rescheduling attempt is canceled an applicant will only be allowed to reschedule a new date after a waiting period of 90 days.  Please plan your visa application accordingly to avoid problems securing an interview appointment.

4 Thoughts on “Manila, Philippines: Important Rescheduling Procedures for NIV Applicants

  1. How much would it cost to bring philipino girl here I talk to her on internet. I’m in a wheelchair so traveling is rough by myself. Can she get visa come here and get married then get fiance visa?

    • Greg, to be eligible for a fiance visa, you’d first need to meet in person. That would either be her meeting you here on a tourist visa or you visiting her. Unfortunately about 80% of tourist visas in this scenario are denied, so it’s highly likely you’d have to visit the Philippines first. Give us a call if you’d like anymore information.

  2. I would like to bring my mom back to USA. The only problem is that she has been in the Philippines for more than a year. She still has her valid green card and valid Philippine passport. What should I do first thing?

  3. I attempted to reschedule my us interview appointment earlier but there is no available slot. So I did not proceed. Is my previous appointment still valid? Or do I have to get a new schedule so it won’t be cancelled?
