My parents finally have an interview for US Embassy Manila (yay!). The NVC letter however did not indicate anything about medical exam. 

Are my parents supposed to get an appointment letter for their medical, or should they call SLEC to make the appointment?

Your parents can just show up at St Luke's Annex for the medical (about $330 each).  They can contact St Luke's on website or phone (forgot which) to "register," but that's not a requirement.

We finally got an interview date for my mom. She is travelling from Davao and her interview date Nov. 9,2017.

Does she need to be two weeks early in Manila for medical exam prior her interview? or one week is enough?

 

Please help!

One week should be enough ... two days for the exam and allow at least one free day between the exam and the interview.

Thank you so much for the reply Fritz. 

 

I checked and didn't realized that its a holiday in the Philippines Oct 31 special non working day. Nov 1 and 2 all souls day.

 

I am going to let them fly the 5th which is Sunday and hoping to cue for the Medical exam in Monday and there should be enough couple of days for the interview (Nov 9). Does anyone have the same experience?

 

Its very stressful, as the flights are getting expensive.

 

How long after the interview do they get their visa?  I want to book the flights for December as soon as possible before the prices go up before Christmas

The visa will arrive in a couple of weeks at most. Once issued it will be shipped by courier to the address given to the Embassy. Near Manila it is just a few days. The further from Manila, the longer the shipping time.

They will know before they leave the Embassy if the visas are approved. As long as there is no problem in delivering the visas, a December flight is no problem.

God Bless
