My wife and I have an appointment at the US Embassy on April 8th. I’m confused as to whether or not we’ll be able to keep our appointment. Any guidance you can offer is greatly appreciated.

    Magandang Baguio Mike, as of March 16, 2020, the US Embassy in the Philippines is cancelling routine immigrant and non-immigrant visa appointments and notarial services. To quote:

    All applicants should monitor their email addresses on record for visa appointment updates. We will resume routine services as soon as possible but are unable to provide a specific date at this time. The MRV fee is valid and may be used for a visa application in the country where it was purchased within one year of the date of payment. If you have an urgent matter and need to travel immediately, you should contact the immigrant or nonimmigrant visa unit by visiting our visa website at

    Hope this helps. Stay safe!
