April 1, 2013, we search a lot of agencies online in Manila that has knowledge and capabilities about US visa process and we found RAPID VISA.
We went to their office same day we found their website online and we started our process the same day. Their nice representatives was very helpful and respectful to us. They told us what to do, if what are the documents we need to obtain in the Philippines and US; if what are the important documents we need to submit before the process started in US Embassy Manila. After 3 months we got approved dated July 26,2013 from USCIS, August 27, 2013 the State Department’s National Visa Center received an approved I-129F petition filed in behalf of my fiance shorter than what we expected for the whole process. December 27,2013 my daughter and I received our K1 and k2 Visa.
The reason why our visa came out 4 months delayed after the State Department’s National Visa Center last August 27,2013 was because of the process of my certificate of criminal record from LEBANON AND HONG KONG. Obtaining a certificate of criminal record overseas made me very upset because it needs a lot of documents to obtain in the Philippines documents like the NBI clearance travel abroad and the 10 finger prints and the Red Ribbon process of the NBI clearance and 10 fingers prints, copy of passport, copy of my legal documents both country that i had work, copy of my working IDs, copy of working visa and contract and a 2 copy of 2×2 picture and a letter of request to the highest police officer in the police headquarters before sending the request to the respective police headquarters overseas and it takes a long time for them to process but Rapid Visa employee in Manila help me download the papers need to fill up and sign from the police headquarters after sending the request of my clearances overseas, I waited too long to receive my clearance from Lebanon because the process was 3 to 6 months and the police headquarters in Lebanon need to file a translation from Arabic to English to the department of highest judiciary law office, after 5 months i received a notice from Lebanon that they already sent my certificate of criminal record to the US Embassy Manila same as Hong Kong but the certificate of criminal record was only 1 month process.
Thanks to Rapid visa also for that part of my process without their precious help of downloading the example of application papers for applying the police clearance overseas… i dont know where to start…!
It takes a month for me prior the exact day of December 27 2013 we received the visa, before I made a decision to tell my fiance to come to the US, because of my daughter’s school records need to process in her school and to the Department of Education.
January 29, 2014 my daughter and I arrived here in USA, and my fiance was very happy that day…more than 3 months prior from our arrival here in US, my fiance and I made a decision to get married because he set aside his job and set aside travelling overseas job that time…I chose simple celebration in our wedding because we chose to save money for a good future..
April 6 2014 we got married and my daughter continued her studying here and she is in 5th grade now and enjoying the benefits of US education, not a very hard part for her to adopt the US way of teaching because she is a fast learner student from The Philippines and my husband and parent-in-laws are very happy of my daughters accomplishments here.
Rapid visa help us also for our adjustment of status…things happened very fast…!!!!
Thank you very much for being so kind helping us….
