K1 Visa - Requirements and Options. [PH-USA]

Hello Everyone, I tried to browse around and see if this question had been answered or discussed before but I couldn't find anything. I'm in a bit of a dilemma regarding the K1-Visa and trying to meet the requirements specifically the "Meet in person within 2 year period" requirement.

Me and my significant other have been planning to meet since before the Pandemic but we had a few setbacks and then the Pandemic happened and now it seems we have a permanent setback on our hands. She is from the Philippines, and they are not expected to open anytime soon we have been trying to brainstorm on ways we can meet the requirements for the K1-Visa but we've come up with nothing.

I know it's highly unlikely for US to allow her to visit on a tourist visa during this time, especially since she has no prior travel history outside of the Philippines, its basically common knowledge that US would deny entry. It seems that other countries we are looking into have very steep requirements for entry such as a 15 day quarantine or have or require an insane amount of money for medical coverage for both parties which would not be doable in our circumstances.

Another issue is we're unsure if Philippines would even allow her to exit the country without a good reason, or with the way things have been handled there so far they may just close their border entirely and she would be locked out of returning home before her vacation days expire.

I know it seems kind of hopeless here, but does anyone have any good recommendations on what to do, or even countries that may be viable for meeting up if we choose to go that route? Waiting until Philippines opens it's borders could be 2022 or 2023 who knows.

Sorry if this has been asked before, thanks upfront for any replies much appreciated.

NVC Case FE Review note

Hi everyone, my family and I are under the F3 category and we just received a notice from NVC that our documents have been approved and that we are Documentarily Qualified. My only concern is this message that we received today in addition to the acceptance: ​ " [Name of petitioner] does not meet the minimum income requirement to sponsor the intending immigrants for this case. The consular officer will make a decision regarding this requirement at the time of the interview. For more information, please visit . To avoid delays, an additional Affidavit of Support Form I-864 for a joint sponsor may be submitted." ​ We already have a petitioner and a household sponsor (the household sponsor's income is above the required level), but still unsure why we received this. Has anyone else received this message? All of our documents say "Approved" on NVC. Does this mean we have to find another sponsor? Can we show the consular officer our
