  1. The visa will be valid for up to three (3) months. However, this is not always the case. The validity of your visa is determined by the consular officers. They can issue you a visa that will last for as short as one (1) month.

  4. Dear Joyce , my girlfriend who works in Singapore but was born in the Philippines wants to apply for a tourist visa to the USA ,, will she need to go back home to Philippines ? or can she apply for visa to USA from Singapore ,, Thank You Sincerely from David in the USA

  5. ONE THING THAT BOTHERS ME, IS WHEN SHE GOT TO THE MANILA ECONOMY HOTEL , I ASK HER FOR THE HOTEL PHONE NUMBER, BUT IT TURNED OUT TO SOMEONE'S CELL NUMBER. SHE CLAIMS THE HOTEL TOLD HER THE TOLL FREE NUMBERS WERE NOT WORKING, BUT STILL HAS NOT EXPLAINED WHY SHE GAVE ME SOMBODY'S CELL PHONE NUMBER. AM I BEING PARANOID. SHE ALSO SAYS THAT I CANNOT BUY HER A ONE WAY TICKET TO HERE, AND HAVE THE TICKET WAITING AT THE AIRPORT.

  6. be very careful at this time wayne.dont trust person so easily.why dont visit her 1st in person then get to know her background and family background,take time to get to know the girl better not in a hurry

  7. when I was stationed on a military base in Japan I noticed that I couldn't buy a one way ticket myself. I think it's like that for any country you have to buy around trip ticket.

  8. well I travel to Japan from the east coast at least once every two years and prices have been rising alot $2000 might be right. but know if you are going to get scammed you will have to know the person first if I was you I would go visit there first you don't need a visa just a passport.

  9. I'm no expert but I think she would have to find the Philippines embassay and apply there in singapore.

  10. This woman is now saying that she has to personaly buy the plane ticket herself , that I can't buy it and have it waiting for her at the ticket counter. So I am suppose to send her the total amount cash , so she can show the embassy that she purchased the ticket herself. So that she can fly here to the USA to me.

  11. Hi…do i have the chance to apply for a tourists visa even if i dont have the said proof of strong ties in the Philippines or any proofs to show.My friend wants to invite me for a visit and if that person can shoulder all the expenses for me just to be able to travel do i have the big chance or opportunity to get a tourist visa?thanks for reading….i'll wait for the answer…

  12. hi ma'am i meet a guy online and became my bf ,he already met in person and after a month he insisted me to visit him in california and he is the 1 to buy me ticket in coming there.my problem is i am capable to apply for tourist visa even im unemployed?

  13. Has she shown you evidence of the visa being approved or even in the process? Where are the receipts or at least an application number. The fake cellphone number is also a red flag. If she keeps insisting you send her money, it's time to end the relationship.

  14. From your post, she is a Philippine citizen wanting to apply for a tourist visa to get the US, so she needs to apply at the US Embassy for the US visa.

  15. that's what I wanted to do several weeks ago, but she came up with some excuse, that would mess up our plans

  16. I went online about a month ago, and I could have gotten a ticket for about $1300 one way, but she says she needs money to go visit her family first, buy some luggage, and fly from Davao City to Manila. Ya know what really gets to me is all the time

  17. yes she just turned 27, and from Davao City, Karla Gonzales the name she gave me, gorgeous girl. claims she is a model.

  18. can i get a tourist visa without invitation letter? are there any other alternatives for that? thank you in advance 🙂

  19. My friend wants to marry a Filipino while she is visiting the US on a tourist visa. Is this legal? Or can they meet while she is here and then later apply for a fiance visa?

  20. WILL I GET MY TOURIST VISA?: All of my family members have visa but i don't. They got there visa when i wasn't born yet in 1990 around that year. and was never renewed. so all of them have expired, My father just passed away and my mom is an at home wife. my brothers are working. I'm just 19 i had a job as a call center agent but i will go back to school by next year. So is it still possible for me to get a visa?

  21. my mom tried three times already but still denied. she just want to bring my kids here in US since I can't able to get them. Im currently 6 months pregnant and my doctor dont allow me to travel. my husband also can't able to get them because he can't get a vacation from work.

  41. YOU are so full of shit it is unbelievable.
    So how much do you charge the poor fellow Pinoys and Pinays for your scam?

    The "average" Pinoy and Pinay will never be granted a Tourist VISA..
    Business, a joke.
    B-1 you have to prove you have a skill that can't be found by an "employer" in the USA and you can not do that..
    I can go on..

    hope to hear back from you, OK?

  53. However the rules are respectable of every societies or countries if they are valuable for all side of the mankind but some mistakes by USA consular are also seen on the visa providing process that they do not ask about the documents and do not carefully looked out the full documents and said to return without seeing the documents are also said unqualified is very sorrowful matter why they do like this?the sum of eleven thousands fee is not enough for them of a applicant?another things a poor man going to visit with his own financial level to the USA with very intention to have his families programs on the sponsor base is not enough to be a qualified person?if it is not enough there is no meaning to be the great country of the worlds thank you for your greatness.

  54. This information is not helpful at all as the government is corrupt. My sister in law just got denied at the corrupt embassy in Manila.
    I petitioned her because her sister is prenatal with our first child and will give birth next month. I wanted her sister here for the birth. I am a retired law enforcement officer, my wife is a nurse, my sister in law is nurse. We have more than enough income to support her while she is here.
    The government is corrupt and they will NEVER prosper. They are stuck in their cesspool of corruption. Bastards….

  55. Is this address still valid? Unit 708 Cityland Herrera Tower Rufino corner Valero Streets

    Do u have children
    Whats ur expected monthly salary

    Thats the question easy it be ans directly then why is it becomes denied, but he never ask if we have letter of invitation and d supprt documents from us. I did not represent coz will just wait for him to ask if have. I dont know whats the reason!

  59. THE us immigration sucks in every way. why the hell does a Filipino have to have a job and stable income and home just to visits the USA when Mexicans travel to the USA everyday with No job and No income and no plan to do it legally and the USA gives them food stamps and social services for years??? this makes No sense at all.
