221g CRISIS IN MANILA APPEARS TO HAVE ENDED

Thanks to aggressive lobbying and advocacy by the AAIHR, MU Law believes that immigrant visas are again being issued to applicants who apply through the US Embassy in Manila.  This week, a notable number of MU Law clients have been granted their visas.

MU Law recommends that all nurses who have been waiting to schedule their appointment begin contacting the Embassy and reset their appointments.

Previously, the US Embassy in Manila had denied virtually every nurse immigrant visa for the entirety of 2020, including in January and February, before the pandemic began.

  1. What a relief, atty. Do you think it’s already advisable to appear for an interview in USEM Manila? Will it be beneficial for all nurses regardless of what their agencies are?

    1. What do you mean? Are these visas exlusive for Avant applicants only?

  5. Is there any specific thing we should do for those other applicants with pending 221g? Or is USEM going to automatically check all their pending 221g

  6. Hi good day sir. Do you think there is a possibility of retrogression? I am in Qatar right now and i have been waiting for my partner to come here for the interview but there is a ban for travelers from philippines right now. Do you think I should wait for my partner or I would just proceed with the interview alone?

    1. There is always a possibility of retrogression, although I don't expect it to happen.

  8. Is this only applicable to nurses under Avant? All the nurses that I know who got their visas were from Avant
