    Hi jenic501, I submitted my document last October 27. I'm currently working in Singapore. Don't worry, keep on praying... perhaps you will have in probably next week.

    Based on the experiences of my sister and a friend, when they submitted their documents, it took them at least a month before they receive their visas.

    Just keep your fingers crossed.

    And you had your interview in Singapore? Or Manila? Singapore is much quicker than Manila, but you have to have a reason that you were there. Such as currently residing there. Same thing with the UK, they are much faster than Manila and it is a well-known fact.

    hi to everyone... this is my first time. my friend who is also a registered member told me about this site... really i find it very interesting. since november visa bulletin came out, it really bothered me a lot. i know im included in the retrogression since my PD is only 6 months ago. what bothers me more is that our agency filed me under I-140 skilledworker/professional and not as Schedule A Nurse. whats the difference between the two? how will it affects my application? thank you so much. your opinion will be higly appreciated.
    I-140 is the petition for the job, it is not the category. Schedule A is under EB-3 right where it needs to be. The I-140 is what everyone has filed. You do not file under Schedule A, there is no such document. Schedule A is a classification only.

    Thanks ms. suzanne for the reply ... but forgive me, im still confused. I have a copy of my notice of action with me and i was petitioned I-140 skilled workers/professional. When i saw the november visa bulletin, the cut off under the classification of skilled worker/professional is july 2002 whereas schedule A is oct 2005. I just want to know if im included in the cut off oct 2005 though im classified as skilled/professional and not schedule A. Im also wondering why my agency didnt put me into schedule A classification. I will wait for your further explanation.. thanks in advance

    As a nurse, you belong to Schedule A. Physical therapists also belong in this schedule.

    kurt2006 - you were interviewed last week too? Who knows, we might have been sitting next to each other! Regarding your visas, I'm glad to hear you submitted your document immediately. Since retro will be setting in, they'll probably have more time to prepare our visas. Here's hoping we get our visas soon.

    arys, agp_ph, happylearning, leis, jakey, bottomless - do you have schedules already? Good luck guys... you're in my prayers.
    Hi penpaper!!!!
    Congratuylations on your interview!!!! How was it? Most of us will have to wait for our turn...maybe next year..... Keep in touch!!!

    Hi jakey, agp_ph and leis!
    Don't lose hope. Let's pray that this retrogression will be over soon. Some of my colleagues had their cases completed at the end of August and they still didn't get an interview! They remain optimistic that in a few months everything will be okay again.

    By the way, jakey, the interview went well. Thanks for asking. =)
    My family and I went a few minutes before 8:30 (appointment was 8:30am) and finished at 10:30am. I didn't experience any rudeness or disrespect at all. In my opinion, the medicals at St. Lukes was more stressful. Be sure to read and follow the tips found in this forum. They helped me a lot... especially Rep's... his shared experiences served as my guide during the entire medical and interview process.

    Here's hoping and praying that all three of you will get your packet 4 soon. Don't forget to update us.
