THE K PACKET
Once we receive a K nonimmigrant (fiancé) visa applicant’s U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS)-approved visa petition (I-129F) from the State Department’s National Visa Center (NVC), the applicant will be notified in writing that he/she is eligible to be scheduled for a visa interview at the Embassy. Alternatively, if an applicant received notice from NVC that his/her case has been forwarded to Embassy Manila, the applicant may call the Immigrant Visa Unit’s inquiry line at 301-2000, extension 5184 or 5185, during regular business hours to confirm if the case has already been received by the Embassy.
Once an applicant has confirmation regarding the status of the case, he/she should visit our website (http://www.ustraveldocs.com/ph) or contact the Embassy’s Visa Information and Appointment Service at (632) 982-5555 or (632) 902-8930 to schedule a visa interview appointment. The Visa Information and Appointment Service is open Mondays through Fridays from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. (Manila time), except on Philippine and U.S. holidays. Callers in the U.S. should call (214) 571-1600 between 7:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m. (Eastern Standard Time).
Applicants should have their case number, passport number, and passport expiry date ready when requesting a visa appointment.
It is important to note that K applicants must pay the visa application fee of $350 (per applicant) before they can request a visa appointment via the online appointment website or the Embassy’s Visa Call Center. For K visa payment instructions, you may visit a link to our website at.
