Once you have received your approval from USCIS, you will need to take certain steps and actions to obtain your K1 Fiance Visa.
After getting notice of your USCIS approval, you will then receive an email or letter from The National Visa Center letting you know that your case has been sent to the US Embassy in Manila. You will also get a local case number starting with the letters MNL. You will need this case number so save your letter or email.
The first step is to prepare your online DS 160 form. Once completed and submitted, you will next want to prepare and finalize your I-134 Affidavit of Support form. Once the I-134 Affidavit of Support form has been completed and is “in hand” with all the supporting financial documents from the US Citizen, it’s time to create a profile with the Embassy. You can create a profile by visiting the following link: http://www.ustraveldocs.com/ph. After creating your profile, you will then schedule your interview through this site.
Once you have created your profile and scheduled your interview, you will need to register a delivery address. This is required by the Embassy so they know where to send your passport and visa to after your interview. You can register your address online by clicking on the “Select Document Delivery Address” link http://www.ustraveldocs.com/ph/ph-iv-documentdelivery.asp. Once there, click on the first link under the “More Actions” heading to register a new address. You will also need to enter a valid contact number to complete the process.
The next step in the process is to obtain the documents that you need to bring to your interview. You can review the list of required documents at: https://ph.usembassy.gov/visas/immigrant-visas/fiancee-visa/the-interview/
