READ THESE IMPORTANT NOTES BEFORE SCROLLING DOWN TO THE ARTICLE:

  • The reader has the DUTY/RESPONSIBILITY to verify information from the aforementioned government agencies on their own - Not through hearsays, forums, or blogs (YES, including this blog). Please read my disclaimer here.
  • Make sure you've read ALL the articles under the "Immigration" Menu up top, because I've written and covered all pertinent information about the whole I-129F/K1/AOS/ROC Processes.
  • Search through Frequently Asked Questions about the whole process from I-129F - K1 Visa - AOS - ROC and other processes. Read about the KnowledgeBase here »
  • The articles found on this blog are applicable to all I-129F Petitions, K1 Visa Applicants, AOS (from a K1 Visa), and ROC applicants unless otherwise noted. The I-129F Process and AOS is the same for all foreign beneficiaries/spouses. Some K1 Visa Process articles are written specifically for applicants from the Philippines. Please refer to your country's U.S. Consulate/Embassy website for country-specific instructions.


Now, when it is In Transit From Post using the US Travel Docs Passport Tracker, you will just have to wait for an SMS Message / Text from 2Go that your passport is ready for pick-up (if you chose pick-up as your option) or you can track your Visa Package using 2Go’s e-Trace.

Actual 2Go Text I got for my US Visa Pick-up at SM Mall of Asia. It will just come from an ordinary mobile number. No short numbers/vanity numbers. | 2Go: How To Track and Pick Up Your Visa Package | ©2013, Life As Mrs. Presson (www.mrspresson.com)

There are three (3) possible ways on how to track your visa package with 2Go:




 

1.) Use your Passport Number

 

2.) Use your MNL Case Number

 

3.) Use the UID Number found on your Appointment Confirmation Page

I tried all three (3) and the only one that worked was my UID Number. Some people I know used their Passport Number. Some used their MNL Case Number. You’d just have to try all three (3) and see which one works for you.

If you haven't picked-up your Visa Package yet, 2Go will mark it as "UNDELIVERED - Reason: HOLD CARGO" | 2Go: How To Track and Pick Up Your Visa Package | ©2013, Life As Mrs. Presson (www.mrspresson.com)

How to pick up your Visa Package from any 2Go Branch

2Go SM Mall of Asia Branch. They say picking up your visa package here usually is 2-3 days faster than home delivery straight from the US Embassy | 2Go: How To Track and Pick Up Your Visa Package | ©2013, Life As Mrs. Presson (www.mrspresson.com)

1. You must bring a valid ID. Driver’s License, The other half of your NBI Clearance, Postal ID, etc. Some say a photocopy of their passport bio matching the one on the Visa Package is enough.

2. Just tell the 2Go employee / attendant that you’re going to pick up a visa package. They will ask for your name and identification. That’s it. :)

Your Status on 2Go e-Trace will change to DELIVERED when picked up.

For the question that has been asked a million times, how do I get my passport out of the plastic package?

Simple. You just open the plastic up top or cut a little slit through it carefully. Make sure you won’t damage the “yellow” envelope else you’d have to send it to the US Embassy again and have it resealed.

REMEMBER: The important thing here is to NOT puncture or damage the YELLOW ENVELOPE. The plastic can be cut but NOT the YELLOW ENVELOPE.

    Hi Mrs. Presson,

    I am a little bit worried about my case i was interviewed and got approved last june 17 and they told me to wait for 3 weeks bec. Their system was down and until now, when i check my status it says ” no status”. I even called the embassy and they said it is still with them. My question is…
    1.) Are they gonna process it soon?
    2.) How many more weeks should i wait? It has been 3 weeks already.
    3.) I told them to have it delivered to my home, how can i change it to just pick it up at any mall or branches of 2go?

    Looking forward for ur reply. Thank u.

    Ever come across this 2Go Tracking status:

    DELIVERED – Received by: PULLED BY FRAUD TEAM

    • I haven’t actually. This is the first time I’ve seen it. USEM has a Fraud Team, and they might have found some red flags on your case and would require additional administrative review / processing. I’m sorry to hear this. You should call USEM directly for any questions on your case. Good luck!

    Hi

    I try all 3 number to track my passport/visa but its still invalid. Now I don’t know what I’m going to do now. its been a week after they approved my visa.

    Thanks.

    Hi Erika!

    Been reading your blog even before I started processing my k1 application. The USCIS approved the petition a month after it was filed. we got the case #, 2 weeks after. I asked my fiancé to call the nvc. Was able to schedule my interview, finished my medical examination, my visa was approved and I just got it today (my cfo seminar will be on friday). Good thing I stumbled upon your blog and basically turned it into my k1 sacred site. Haha! Coz if I waited for the notice letter from the embassy, one thing is for sure, I’m still waiting for it up now.

    Thank you so much! God bless!

  9. gigi says:

    Hi! My status at online says “issued” since Jan 28. I am from Manila, will it be delivered soon?
    Thank u so much. :)

  10. What does it mean when my my status went from “your passport is still with the us embassy/consulate” to “Document delivery imformation”? Thanks

  11. Sue says:

    Hi,

    We’ve chosen home delivery, can we still track where my passport is through online? I’m just worried that it won’t reach to me and it says “Issued” on the site.

  12. ARLYN B. TAN says:

    hi, i wondered how long does it takes to get my visa’s since i was having my interviewed last november 26, 2014 and until now i haven’t heard from them.
    please let me know if my visa’s is already in your hand and how do i know that?
    thank you and more power!
