    Yes, It is on hold, but my application was submitted before the cutoff date in October and was processed.

    It has changed. I just got this back from the service I was dealing with....Unfortunately, I have already been in the Philippines since 2012, travelling back just to get a dumb letter apostilled is not practical or affordable. I'm already out of pocket 170,000p for this SRRV.

    • Hello Bob,
    Unfortunately the US Department of State requires three things on any federal document; signature, printed name and title. Unless it has all three it gets rejected. Unfortunately there is a disconnect between the State Dept and the SSA. SSA does not want to sign the letters and the State Dept requires it. Most people go to a SSA field office to get this done, and sometimes they have to go to three or four.
