Good to know..doesn't specify that they accept I-130 for spousal visa in Cebu Consular office so I suppose I still need to go to Manila as US Citizen/Philippine resident? 

 

Only U.S. citizens resident in the Philippines may file an I-130 petition with DHS the U.S. Embassy.

They take either cash or credit card.

I used a credit card when I applied for my daughter's passport renewal.

It would cost me $30 ( bank wire)  to pay a $110 CC bill, so I will use cash.
