Timeline

On February 12, we will be departing to the US. What should we expect once we get to our POE in Detroit and what documents will they ask for?

Also, her parents and her brother will apply for a tourist visa after we leave and we know that they have a pretty good chance of getting it since their only reason to go is to witness their ONLY daughter's wedding. Besides the wedding invitation and a copy of Faith's visa, what else should we provide them for their interview? Thank you.

Sincerely,

Kits & Faith

documents at the POE will be passport with visa, the brown envelope. I-94 and customs declaration will be given to your fiance and filled out on the flight to USA.

dont mean to rain on your parade, but the reason and evidence you mentioned for the relatives to obtain tourist visas probably will not carry much weight with the CO. he will want to see evidence they have significant ties to the Philippines. it's worth a try, but it's not as certain as you may feel.

They have to provide a lot of documentations and proves that they are coming back and are not going to stay with your fiance there in US. A good way for them to prove they are coming back is showing the following at the interview.

Bank letter with the a good amount of money in it. Better if it is an old account, not a new one because they are going to know it was open with the purpose of going to the Consulate.

Land or house titles if they have some property in their country

Car titles if they have

Employment Letter

Birth Certificate showing that they are the parents of her

Her documents that you mentioned.

The fact that she is going to get married doesn´t mean an approval for getting a visa.

Good luck :thumbs:

YMR is right.... bring all the documents mentioned .. you can also add iteneraries (not plane ticket) as additional proof of what they will do in the US everyday and the date when they plan to go back in the PI.

For tourist visa, specially for those who haven't been in the US, applying for it is very hard. The CO is a bit strict on issuing B2 visa (tourist)... that is why you need a lot of proof, grounds, that you will go back. They want to know that you have a good ties in the Philippines as reason to go back.

And guess what, the CO in the counters for other types of visa are stricter compared to the CO in the immigrant section!

That's based on my observation and experienced!! hehe

The embassy also recommends that tourist visa applicants should apply three months before their travel, or apply as far in advance as possible, as it could take some time to receive an appointment, and there is no guarantee that the visa application will be approved.

The marriage should be done w/in the 90 days of your fiancee's arrival and the mentioned above will complicate the plan of them witnessing the wedding if it will really take time to process thier visas and/or unless you will have a second ceremony.

For parents, its is easier to get a tourist visa... coz one thing they consider is age! Plus the fact that you will be supported by your in laws while you're visiting.

Like other visa application, it takes only few questions til they decide grant it or not!

But still you need the necessary papers... hehehe

Good luck and congrats on your wedding!!!
