K2 Interview and POE

K2 Interview- April 17, 2012

Mom and my son went to Manila April 16, 2012 and stayed at Granprix Hotel for my son's interview the next day.

April 17, 2012 is my son's big day. They went to the US Embassy like 4:30 am and mom told me there is already a long line waiting. Miguel is a very smart boy so actually it looks like he knows what to do. Mom is a little slow getting to the booth so Miguel always come to the booth first. His interview went very well, no lots of questions asked just personal questions that usually comes out during the interview. But they got all the legal docs. that we sent to them. Below are the list of documents that my son have during his interview.....

K2 Interview Documents:

2x2 U.S Visa Pic pasted to DS- 156- 2pcs.

My authorization letter for my mom who will accompany my son on his med. and interview

After 3 days of my son's interview his visa was issued. April 20, 2012 and no one week and it was in the 2go in our place. My mom just picked it up.

I went to the PH to fetch my son and stayed there for 3 wks. K2's CFO doesn't need to do the seminar we just went to the CFO ofc. to pay for the registration and get his sticker. Paid that for 400 pesos.

At NAIA because our ticket was purchased here in the USA we are required to pay T.T for my son because he doesn't have a GC yet.

Travel Tax: P810-
Processing Fee- GC Holder: P200-
Processing Fee- K2 Visa Holder: P200
Terminal Fee: P550/ person travelling

Note: they asked for my MC bcoz still using my old PP that's in my maiden name.

Finally at the POE: we did his POE in Guam, because i have the GC i just showed the IO my PP and my GC then i did the finger scanning. Then we went to a room of US Immigration in Guam to process Miguel's entry, they got his yellow packet no questions asked from us regarding his K2 visa/ entry.

K2 Arrival in the USA: May 22, 2012
