Quick question, F2B ako and magpapa change status na sila mother from LPR to USC.
I want to opt out sa automatic transfer of status (kung ano man tawag dun)...

I need to send a letter diba? Ang tanong, saan? Embassy dito sa UAE or sa Manila?

Am not to particular sa current status ng mga yan ha,...
Pero marami rin akong naririnig na mas pinipili nila na mag-stay sa category ng F2B
coz mas gumagalaw pa sya kesa sa bagong category na pupuntahan nya,
do check it muna kung mas mapapabilis ka, or you might end up waiting much more,...
Good luck,...

mas mapapabilis ako sa f2b kesa mag F1.

F2B = 22MAR02
f1 = 08OCT97

Ma reretain yung PD ko as 2007 pero aatras naman yung current priority by 5 years.
di lang ako sure kung saan ako dapat mag request. Nandito kasi ako sa Dubai at umuuwi lang ako sa pinas for a couple of weeks.

@sis khat, when I petition my parents. Hindi naman sila separate sis. Together sila in-ninterview. And they attended the CFO seminar. I think it's mandatory to have a CFO seminar. They did their seminar after they got their VISA. Good Luck on your parents sis! ;D

Update sa Petition ng 2 sisters ko:

Di pa din kami nakakuha ng NOA2.

Hi mga sis and bro!

It's been 4 months since nafile yung petition sakin ni hubby ( he's a USC),  sa mga nababasa ko 6 to 8 months ang processing. Yung timeline na yun ba ay approval pa lang? Wala pa ba dun yung time ng medical at interview? I know months na lang hihintayin namin pero ganito pala yung feeling,everytime na may development hintay ng hintay.  I can't wait na matapos to, gusto ko na makasama hubby ko  :(

By the way, by this time ano na ba dapat ang mga pineprepare ko,whether documents or anything else?

Thanks in advance!  :)

^^sis lisse,congrats! Ang saya naman, in two months may NOA2 ka na...ako still waiting hopefully next month dumating na rin yung sakin :)

Malaki ba talaga difference ng processing times between services centers? Yung sayo pala sa California, mine kasi sa Vermont.

Hi sis, it's nice pag meron kang nami-meet na pareho mo ng situation. Haaay, dadaan ulit ang holidays na magkalayo kami. But anyway, months na lang naman ang hihintayin. Mixed feelings din,though excited ako to be with my husband nalulungkot naman akong isipin din na iiwanan ko yung parents ko dito sa pinas. So right now, I'm making the most of out remaining months here with them.

Let's just keep on praying,darating din yun. God bless us all :)

TIA mga sissies


@lisse- Congrats sis :) Goodluck sa lahat ng mga sissies natin,

@sis xylene, thanks! And regarding service centers, I'm not sure ha pero mas madami akong naririnig na complaints sa VSC na mas matagal daw processing nila compared sa CSC.

@sis khat, during my interview, I still brought original and photocopies of those civil docs. Just to be on the safe side. Sabi ko mas ok na yung madami akong dala and Hindi naman nila need, kesa masurprise ako na they ask for it and I don't have it. Per my experience, pictures Lang namin ni hubby ang ni request nilang makita the rest of the docs na they have na, Hindi na nila hiningi Ulit. Bring cenomar. Yung girl before me nagdelay yung issuance ng visa niya kasi wala siya g cenomar e the CO asked for it.

sis police clearance can be secured in any municipality, e.g Makati City hall, Manila City hall. They have police clearance there.  NBI clearance or Police clearance will do.
