I'm the wife of an American Soldier;

I'm the hope that lives within him after storm clouded days.

The freedom from war that gives wings to his heart,

May they reach across the miles and bind our hearts together

against all that we must face in this world.

when will Philippines be included in the Visa Waiver program

Most likely never. There is no plan in the works, and the USA is very very selective about the countries to which in adds to the Visa Waiver list.

Probably the question should be when would the Philippines qualify to be a VWP country.

Difficult to tell, my guess is not in the life time of anybody on the board.

Also I dont see it happening because of the terrorist groups in the PI connected to Al Quida.....Abu Sayyaf and the NPA

Especially as of the last decade. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terrorism_in_the_Philippines

I think if the Philippines becomes a member of the VWP it will become a burden due to too many filipinos will migrate and not want to return back to the Philippines.

It is happened here already :blink: . Well pretty soon half our state will be Ilocano. Then only place Hawaiians will be is in Vegas :blink:

Correct, decades ago many Ilocanos migrated to Hawaii and became farmers and worked in the Sugar plantations, but I believe that was when the Philippines was still a commonwealth and all filipinos were American citizens at the time.

Qualification for the VWP is based on the rate at which visas issued in that country are violated. The Philippines has a poor track record of TNT which makes inclusion in the VWP extremely unlikely and makes it very difficult to even get a tourist visa.
