Voting in the Philippines

Filed: K-1 Visa Country: Philippines
Timeline

My fiancee is very worried about the upcoming election. She is in the Mindanao province taking care of her father who is critically ill. She must travel to Cebu to vote because that is where she is registered. She does not want to leave her father (he might not make it through the weekend) but the nurses at the hospital told her that it is very important for her to vote if she wants to get her K-1 Visa later. They have stressed this so much to her that she is adamant in leaving on Sunday to travel to Cebu just so she can vote on Monday.

I told her not to go. I told her I am sure that the government agencies issuing the K-1 Visa will understand her need to care for her father instead of voting.

Am I wrong? I cannot understand why voting would be that important towards her getting her K-1 Visa.

Can someone please tell me something that I can pass on to her soon?

Thank you.

Daniel

Well,apparently not...I still don't get it. I don't recall reading anywhere that voting was a requirement of the K-1 Visa. If that's a requirement, then we might be screwed on the K-1 Visa because I would still recommend she not go. It will be her decision.

I call BS on that, Voting has nothing to do with the K-1 Visa, its your choice, If you ask me your fiance is being taken for a ride. I think its a waste of time and money to fly to Cebu and vote. Dude you need to tell her to knock this ####### off and forget about voting.

Being Elected President is also a requirement for a K1

You do know that Rumors and misleading rumors is the favorite sport in Philippines

Voting has nothing to do with a K1 Visa

Yeh, they're just trying to intimidate her for some reason. I know it's important to most families and they're pretty adamant about it but the USEM wouldn't have any idea if you did or not, nor would they care. My wife was sad that she had to be in Manila for the election but it had to be.

Tell her pay no attention to nurses, hell a "doctor" told my wife she had tb last week because she had a cough and a runny nose :blink::bonk:

Has it crossed your mind that she might be using this as a excuse to go to Cebu and hang out with some friends ?

Something about Nurses and Doctors giving misleading information as of lately...... If i were you and she still insisted of going to Cebu to vote then I think its time to open a can of WHOOP A55 and LAY THE SMACK DOWN that she needs to stay with her critically ill father.

Hi!

I don't think that voting is a requirement for the K-1 visa. And I guess, never been a requirement to anything.

I am already in the US through K-1, but haven't registered to vote, and of course, have not even tried to vote.

Voting is a right....It is a privelege, and it is not an obligation. That is what I learned in my political science subject. It is up to you if you exercise it or not.

If I were to choose, I would spend 24 hours watching over my ill father in the hospital than go to Cebu and vote.I think your girl has other motives.... You should investigate.

Thanks.

I agree with you, the days of the MARCOS dictatorship is gone, you are no longer forced to vote. You should investigate your girls motives. Should like a big giant crock of bull ####### is about to happen.

I agree! I spent my whole life (30 years) in the Philippines and I only voted once when my father ran for a councilor, several years ago and never have had any problem at all nor was I required to vote. Voting is an honor, but is not required nor an obligation.

I've never heard anybody that was being forced/threatened by somebody to vote in order to obtain the K-1 visa. The motives behind the reason is pretty obvious, she's BSing him.
