Poor Filipina girl tourist visa

32 posts in this topic Register to Ask a Question

I met a wonderful girl in Davao 3 years ago! She is poor, has 2 kids, no real job (she buys and sells used clothes!) I have been supporting her for 3 years now. I send her 12,000 peso every month. We have receipts. Everyone said it was impossible for her to come to Australia to visit me. I am a US citizen who lives here in Australia. I put $1200 US $ in her bank account and have $80,000 in mine. She has visited me here in Australia twice now without any problems at all for 3 month visits and has returned to P.I. on time! Australia has the same strict entry conditions like America. So now I want to have her visit America and to meet my family. Based on her past positive visa results to her Australia---why should there be any problem for her to go visit to America??? Everyone on this board seems so cynical! With the proof of my long time support and the $$ I have in my bank account---WHY SHOULD SHE BE DENIED ENTRY??????

The CO at the the interview has to be convinced she will return to the Philippines. the proof she needs is not your long time support. she needs to prove she has significant ties the Philippines. the money in your bank account doesn't matter. it's possible your long time support could be a detriment. not being cynical, just realistic.

Twice she has come to Australia AND RETURNED to the Philippines. She has a 3 year old and an 8 year old and the rest of her family living there! I don't even live in America anymore! I live in Australia with my 13 year old son and his Australian mother!!

I disagree. Rules are pretty similar but While Australia trust you as alien and expect best of conduct from you, America is skeptic and see the worst an alien can do . Just a basic difference in approach gives two contrasting outcome.

A single phil lady with two kids entering to America????? Not simple

A single, poor (your words) PI woman with no job is going to be a difficult sell to the US consulate. But there is a 100% guarentee she won't get it if she doesn't apply

There is a laundry list of reasons why she wouldn't get it, and her travels to Australia are irrelevant. As is the amount of money you have.

Good luck

Our laws are different...anyone seeking a tourist visa is PRESUMED to be going to the US to stay, and must convince the VO otherwise...but she has no reasons to return to the PI, given her lack of meaningful employment and the fact that YOU are providing financial support from a different country. Also, the track records of single filipinas abusing tourist visas (to the US) is off the charts. :blush:

If she doesn't have a job they do!!!

Why are you shouting? If you want to highlight/bring something to attention there are functions that allow this, this, this and colour/shades.

Your girlfriend is a young unmarried mother of 2 who doesn't do a 9-5 or operates a registered business, doesn't seem to own property, has an American boyfriend (your bank $$$ means nothing to the VO) who constantly has to care for her and her needs. All this works against her.

Come on and let's be realistic, PI citizens aren't flooding Australia like they do America so not because she behaved herself down under means she will once she gets a taste of the American dream. Again, it doesn't look good especially considering she's Filipina but if she can pull a 180 on the facts of her life or you believe she will be successful regardless then go ahead and have her apply.

You came to this forum looking for information about other peoples' experiences. They gave you good information based on their experiences, and you call them cynical because you don't like the answer. Sometime it's the system that cynical and not the people trying to help you.

How many poor people you think abuse their visitor visas in the US? Better to be illegal and working in the US then poor and not working outside the US.

Do you know that 15% of the Asian immigrants in the US are illegal? Most came to the US with visitor visas.

While you know your girl is different, the US government does not. She will be lumped in with all the other poor Filipinos applying for visitor visas. The chance of an unemployed and poor Filipina getting a visa is practically zero.

The visitor visa process is about her; not you. Your support and your money does not matter. It's about her.

Come on back and let us know what the results are when she applies.

My ex filipina gf back in 2005 had two ex BF's one from Wales and one from England. She went with them each and never over-stayed. In 2006 she got a 6 month single entry to USA to come back with me to meet my family. Although I no longer date her she is a good person. I just heard she received a 10 year multiple entry Visa with her new American BF. I am a firm believer that once a Filipino show they are no threat to over-stay or not go back then their Visa will be approved. I did fill out an afitdavit (spelling??) of support for her. I do not see your situation as anything to worry about.

Australia and the US do not have the same "strict rules" it is actually easier to get into Australia :)

You should think about it from the IO's perspective: your fiance is coming visit the man who financially supports here, to a country which has supposedly higher living standards.

I really believe the people here are trying to help you and trying to help you see it from the IO's perspective to help you prepare for the potential obsticals you may face -- THEY COULD BE WRONG.

I wish you the best of luck. Please let us know how it goes, if you are successful you can help others who maybe are in the same position as you!
