It is the most reliable way of sending mail to the philippines, i have never had any issues using this method and have sent many documents. Point to note though it is no faster than sending ordinary mail and can take 3 to 4 weeks to get where it is going especially in the smaller provinces. I normally get copies authorised by a justice of the peace and then scan and send, i then post the copies. Occasionally if you are required to send the original then i keep at least 2 authorised copies just in case but have never had a problem. Hope this helps

why it takes too long on my application.???is there any documents they still need??
Join the "waiting club" MsSeptember, I submitted mine last week of August. Judging by this thread, I noticed that applicants who no longer receive communication are just waiting for the final approval. I guess it's just a matter of when our case officer wakes up in the right side of their beds and decide to give us our visas. Just hang tough, hopefully we'll all get there.

Hi Pippen
That started of sounding a bit harsh but i do understand where you are coming from. There seems to be a group (who applied around july/august) of us stuck on the waiting line whilst others are processed after us. Yesterday i spoke to someone who applied in July and is still waiting and you know that i applied the week before you and am still waiting. I do agree though the waiting is a killer but no contact is supposedly good news. If the decision comes back not approved i think i will be admitted to the lunatic asylum haha

If our application comes back and we are denied then that would be the harshest thing in this world. If something is wrong with our application they should have contacted us by now and not make us wait.

Agreed, i have not seen anyone on this thread denied yet, but am aware that some people wait still 9 months for a result from Manila. I know this as someone else from this thread met a lady at manila airport who waited for 9 months to have her pmv approved and sadly she had the same CO as me aahh.
Though i guess the 9 months is a bit like giving birth first a long 9 month wait, some pain and then a happy moment

Visa application time to be sent to a CO

Just received an auto reply on a question and it said that the current time from receiving an application to when it is sent to a CO is 8 weeks!!!
The embassy web sit is: applications being processed up to the 11th December, how slack are they, can't even be bothered updating the web site.

Good news for you Mark.
But why don"t they update the web site and let people know how long the wait is before the application is sent to a CO!!!
The only reason I found out was from there auto reply.
