Guys meron paba babayaran if ever mabigyan ng visa? Delivery fee of passport?
admin pwede bang alisin na yun mga na post ko? at pati na rin yun account ko?
Other than that, you have other things that may positively work in your favor, particularly yung travel history mo (although hindi rin ito assurance na this will be the sole basis for granting a visa, kasi kahit yung ibang applicants nabigyan din naman kahit walang travel history).
Good luck and continue to share with us your thoughts and experience in visa application.

During the interview, there are times that he will look me in the eye and (i was thinking... naniniwala kaya to sa akin) and paulit ulit yung tanung... and thank God he was generous enough to give me a visa. Our interview lasted 8-10 minutes.
question: much better ba if you call online or book via website? i try to book an appointment online pero the earliest available date is October pa, eh we're planning to go to the US by october this year
congrats nhice! nakaka kabado naman mga tanung niya sayo
luwibee grabe ang tagal pa next available date. Ako noon 3months pa.... di ko rin alam which is better to have an appointment... sorry can't help
I heard from my friend that it's relatively easy na daw to get a B2 visa, although I'm not sure if there's any truth to it. I've backtracked on some of the previous posts here, but I noticed most were cases of married applicants. I wonder if there are any who applied for a B2 visa na nasa late 20s to early 30s?
Nasabi kasi previously na yung edad na yun medyo delikado na. Has anyone tried applying first time for a tourist visa under that age? I know we only have to prove that we intend to come back, but I'm just curious if there are any stories with those circumstances.
I got my first US visa in my late 20s. I was 28. Nung nawala visa ko, I reapplied last year. 34 na ako nun at still single.
And don't believe the age-old urban legend that 'it's relatively easy to get a tourist visa nowadays' thing. As I've already mentioned before, those who get granted say that; and to those who got denied say otherwise. Everything will depend on the applicant's merits.
Hi, My family used to stay in the u.s. when i was a kid. Then we moved to pinas. My greencard has already expired(wasnt able to renew). The thing is, my name on the green card was anthony george wala insteas of anthony wala lang. But i didnt experience any problems with the green card. Now i have a pending application for a visa. Should i use the same name on my old greencard or use my correct name. And if i use the name on my old greencard will i have any problems in the future? Thanks.Please email me at email@example.com
Hi i just wanna share my experience with my interview yesterday for my renewal of visa. my visa expired 2 years ago.
im 24, female, a registered nurse since 2010, but working as a licensed real estate broker.
i have a fat bank acct
we have a family business
and i have 1 property under my name.
before my interview, i was beating my brain out to the thought of being asked what my college course was.
of course, im a nursing grad. but i really didnt want the consul to find out about that since im sure, i was gonna get denied.
im 24, i look like im 18 so i was pretty sure she was gonna ask about my college background. i was ready to tell the consul otherwise, but i just got lucky.
here's how my interview went.
(interview with me and my sister)
Consul: goodmorning! ( yes she said it first.)
consul: so have any of you been issued a visa before?
me: i have. ( so i gave her my old visa and she stamped it with cancelled w/o prejudice)
consul: have you been anywhere outside the ph.
me: yes, ive been to hongkong, macau, thailand, singapore and US
consul: so what do you do for a living
me: im a licensed real estate broker and a director in our company
consul: tell me something about your company:
me: its an import trading company.. blablabla, ( i wasnt even finished yet when she said "OK" and smiled)
consul asked my sister next.
consul: so have you been out of the country?
sis: yes, ive been to hongkong and macau
consul: whats your work?
sis: im currently studying as an interior designer
consul: who's going to pay for your trip?
sis: my husband
consul: what does your husband do for a living
sis: he's a chef.
(SHE WAS TYPING SOMETHING TO HER COMPUTER)
I WAS WAITING FOR HER TO ASK ME BACK AGAIN cos i thought we weren't done with the interview yet but to my surprise she said
" ok, both your visas have been approved just wait for your passports to be mailed in your registered address. thank you"
I was ready to lie already about my course but THANK GOD i didnt have to! Prayers really do work!
medyo off topic... sa mga L1-B visa holder anu pong docs *** pinakita niyo sa airport nung aalis na kayo? will the visa suffice plus the usual airline stuff(ticket passport)? or do i need to present the transfer letter from the company sa IO sa NAIA?
Bakit walang reply with quote function?
anyway to those asking which is better, to set an appointment online or via phone,
online of course is more convenient, since you'd see on the screen which dates are available, and yes, 3 months ahead na daw ngayon, ang pa sched dapat,
my sis who got approved last week, had her appointment scheduled 1st week of march pa. that was the earliest date available.
as to the one who's asking whether being married is a factor,
Id say, slight, but it would still depend on other aspects, like work, salary, assets, your purpose.
A moderate status of everything in the list above and being single, would give your chances a 50/50, imho.
Why not just take the plunge and find out.
