Are you a relative or a sponsor of a visa applicant and wish to inquire about the status of the applicant’s case? Please be aware that visa records are confidential! Only visa applicants and their legal representatives with a Form G-28 can inquire about a visa case.
Section 222(f) of the Immigration and Nationality Act states, in part, “The records of the Department of State and of diplomatic and consular offices of the United States pertaining to the issuance or refusal of visas or permits to enter the United States shall be considered confidential.”
The U.S. Embassy in Manila will respond to case-specific inquiries from visa applicants, parents or legal guardians of minor applicants (unmarried, 17 years old and below), and applicants’ legal representatives with a signed Form G-28, Notice of Entry of Appearance as Attorney or Representative.
The Form G-28 is available for download at the USCIS website. The Form G-28 can be submitted to the Embassy via email at ConsManilaNIV@state.gov. It must be signed by the visa applicant and the legal representative.
