Maraming taon nang tumutulong si Fred Wahl sa mga magkarelasyon upang makakuha ng kanilang Visa , at pwede ka rin nyang tulungan! Naiintindihan ni Fred na isang mahirap at
minsan ay nakakatakot na proseso ang pagkuha ng Visa, kaya sinisigurado nya na sya mismo ang gagabay sa kanyang mga kliyente sa buong prosesong ito.
Siya ay parehong bonded Immigration Consultant, at isang tanyag na matchmaker. Bilang isang matchmaker, ang kanyang misyon ay tulungan ang mga magkarelasyon upang maikasal at magkaroon ng isang masayang buhay. Bilang isang Immigration Consultant, ang kanyang misyon ay tulungan ang mga magkarelasyon na magkita sa USA sa pinakamabilis at pinakakomportableng paraan hangga't maaari.
Palagi siyang nagtu-tuon ng personal na pansin at nagbibigay ng suporta upang tiyakin na ikaw ay komportable sa buong proseso. Siya ay pamilyar sa lahat ng mga kinakailangang gawin sa Immigration hanggang sa huling detalye. Sisiguraduhin nya na walang mga natatagong sorpresa na hindi kanais-nais. Siya'y may mahabang karanasan pagdating sa ganitong aspeto at kapag ginawa ng tama ang paghahanda sa simula pa lamang, ang buong karanasan ay magiging madali.
Hindi kagaya ng ibang kasangguni, si Fred ay tunay na nagmamalasakit sa kanyang mga kliyente, at talagang nais nya na kayo ay magtagumpay. Makikipag-usap siya sa inyo ng malinaw at pwede kayong makipagugnayan direkta sa kanya, Lunes hanggang Biyernes sa pamamagitan ng telepono at email. At siya ang personal na sasagot sa inyo, kaagad!
Ang Paghahanda ng isang matagumpay na petisyon para sa Visa ay kagaya ng isang sining at isang agham. Agham ang pagsagot sa mga form ng tama, at paglagay ng lahat ng mga opisyal na dokumento sa tamang paraan. Ang sining ay sa pagpapakita ng karapatang katibayan upang makumbinsi ang isang taong hindi ka kilala na kayo ay totoong magkasintahan. Magaling si Fred sa pagsasabi ng inyong kwento, at titiyakin nya na kayo ay lalabas na kapani-paniwala.
Ang paghahanda ng isang petisyon para sa Visa ay maaaring maging kumplikado, at ang lahat ng mga forms at mga papeles ay dapat isampa sa Estados Unidos. Bagaman tila mas madaling magbayad ng isang tao na nagsasalita ng iyong sariling wika, hindi ka nila matutulungan sa pinaka-mahalagang bahagi, ito ay ang tamang pagkumpleto ng "petition package", na kailangang ihanda ni Fred at ng iyong kasintahan, at pagkatapos ay isusumite sa US. .
Patuloy kayong tutulungan ni Fred sa sandaling dumating ka sa US, at sisiguraduhin niyang magiging madali ang iyong paglipat sa iyong bagong bahay, at maaari ka rin niyang tulungan upang ikaw ay makapag-aplay para sa "permanent residency". Ito din ay isang bagay na kung saan ang isang lokal na tao sa iyong bansa ay hindi ka matutulungan.
Pinagmamalaki ni Fred Wahl ang kanyang pagiging isang tunay na propesyonal. Hindi nya lamang titiyakin na lahat ng iyong papeles ay tama, pero titiyakin nya rin na kumportable ka sa proseso at alam mo kung ano ang aasahan at sasabihin. Ang mga petisyon na ginawa ni Fred ay karaniwang mas mabilis na naaaprubahan.
Para sa bawat hakbang, maaari kang mag-log in sa iyong sariling pribadong account sa web kung saan magbibigay si Fred ng malinaw na direksyon tungkol sa kung ano ang susunod na gagawin. At pagdating ng iyong interbyu sa embahada, siya ay maghahanda sa kung ano ang iyong sasabihin, kung ano ang dadalhin, at magbibigay sya ng isang daan at dalawampung mahirap na mga katanungan para sayo at sa iyong kasintahan upang kayo ay makapagensayo at ikaw ay handa na kapag sila'y magtanong.
Nais ni Fred Wahl na ikaw ay mamuhay ng masaya habang buhay. At ang isang matagumpay na petisyon para sa Visa ayang iyong huling hadlang. Hayaang si Fred ang iyong maging kaibigan at gabay sa prosesong ito upang tiyakin na ito ay magawa ng tama. Maaari mong talakayin ang mga detalye kay Fred sa telepono o sa personal, kaya huwag ng mag-atubiling makipag-ugnayan sa kanya anumang oras.
Para sa mga ganito kaimportanteng bagay, tiyakin na mayroon kang isang tao na maaari mong mapagkakatiwalaan. Bisitahin ang www.fianceevisaservices.com upang makakuha ng proseso at makapagsimula kaagad.

Obtaining Police Certificate
Available and reasonably reliable. Philippine-born immigrant visa applicants 16 years and over are required to furnish certificates issued by the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI). The green NBI certificate annotated for travel abroad is the correct certificate. Other colors are for local use only. Foreign-born applicants who have resided in the Philippines for six months or more may be issued NBI clearances upon application either in person or by mail. Applicants residing outside the Philippines should send requests for certificates together with money orders or bank drafts for the fees and postage to IRD-Mailed Clearance Section, National Bureau of Investigation, Taft Avenue, Metro Manila, Philippines. Philippine Embassies abroad can assist Filipinos in obtaining NBI police clearances. The NBI has its own fingerprint charts and personal data forms that it will send to the requesting applicant for execution. Most applicants abroad find it more expeditious to have a relative or friend in the Philippines assist them in obtaining their certificates from the NBI. In that instance, a letter of authorization is required. The applicant may also submit a copy ("personal copy") of a prior NBI clearance to facilitate the processing of a new clearance. Posts are advised that not all arrests and convictions occurring outside of Manila are reported to the NBI. NBI's criminal records database is not foolproof and the remarks provided on reports require explanation.
*Manila and major Philippine cities have computerized records.

Some fiancees think they might want to get married, but are not 100% certain, and need more time to get to know each other or to adjust to the new country. The fiancee may qualify for a visitor visa if the intention is not to get married in the USA (but to come and go and get married in another country, to return again on an immigrant visa). However, by applying for a K-1, the foreign fiancee may be much more open about their intentions since the purpose of the visa is to allow a foreign citizen to remain in the United States for 90 days to get married, with the idea of living and working legally after marriage. If the intent to marry is made clear enough, and something does happen that makes the couple decide not to marry, then the fiancee may leave the country without repercussions. However, in the case that the couple marry after entry on another type of temporary visa, there are some penalties under the law. In many cases the marriage will be upheld and immigrant status granted to the foreign spouse, but sometimes the foreign spouse risks being deported. Limitations have also been put into place to discourage marriage by visitors on other visas. For example, a K1 visa may not be issued to a recent student visitor (to discourage foreigners being students merely for the purpose of meeting US spouses). Though the K1 visa may take more time in planning, it minimizes risks that wedding plans will be scuttled at the last moment by a denial of admission.
Expert Tip # 11
Do send in all forms. When in doubt submit it. Each consulate has their own procedures and practices. If you have a form and you are not sure that it is needed, fill it out and send it in anyway. If it is not needed they will discard it. But if it is needed the process will not be delayed.
