    Does anyone know if the fiancee visa application can be started prior to my fiancee securing a passport? Thanks in advance.

    If this is for a US visa, a Philippines passport is required. Following is web site:
    Filipino Spouses and Fiance(e)s | Embassy of the United States Manila, Philippines
    A fiancé(e) is considered an intending immigrant and therefore must present documents similar to those required for an immigrant visa applicant. These include: a valid Philippine passport; a copy of the applicant's birth certificate issued by the National Statistics Office (NSO) and printed on NSO security paper; legal documents proving the termination of a previous marriage (if applicable); NBI clearance; police certificates from all foreign countries where the applicant lived for at least six months starting at the age of 16; evidence of the relationship with the petitioner; evidence of financial support; a medical examination completed by St. Luke’s Medical Center Extension Clinic and visa photographs.

    For US visas, yes, the K1 can be started without the intending immigrant having a passport. She will not need a passport until the time comes for the medical exam. So you would have 6 months or so in which to secure a passport after filing the petition.
