US Embassy Manila Advisory for Non-Immigrant Visa Applicants
The US Embassy Manila announced in their Facebook page that as of September 3, 2012, all nonimmigrant visa applicants now need to present a U.S. visa application deposit slip to be able to pay the machine-readable visa (MRV) application fee.
This means that visa applicants should first print the applicable U.S. visa application deposit slip before heading to the bank to pay for the visa application.
The said deposit slip has an expiration date on the deposit slip and bank agents will NOT accept payments based on expired deposit slips.
Upon payment, the bank will issue a receipt that is irreplaceable. The receipt number is necessary to be able to schedule an appointment.
For complete instructions and to print the deposit slip, please visit US Embassy’s online appointment website.
