How do I get my passport back from the U.S. Embassy Manila?
As of December 1, 2010 the Nonimmigrant Visa unit at U.S. Embassy Manila has a new courier system to return passports to visa applicants. You no longer have to pay extra for your passport and visa to be returned to you – the cost of the courier service is included in your MRV fee that you pay before you make an appointment.
The passport and visa will be sent directly to you by the courier service at the address provided when the appointment was made. In the case of seafarers, the passport and visa will generally be sent to the seafarer’s manning agency.
If you are not home at the time of the delivery of the passport, you must leave an authorization letter and a copy of a government-recognized photo ID with a representative who can accept your passport on your behalf.
If you are interested in bringing your fiancée or spouse over to the USA on the K1 fiance or spousal visa and utilizing my immigration legal experience since 1997, please contact me at 626-771-1078.
