10 years is the standard.

For some people very easy, for others next to impossible.

If by ordinary people you mean your average everyday Filipino then the chance is very slim.

What you need is to show strong ties to the Philippines such as:

Educated with a good job.

High balance in you bank account.

Strong Family Ties.

Own land or business(es) [sari-sari store isn't enough]

It also helps if you're not a young cute single female (seriously).

If you are an unemployed Filipina living at home with you poor family then you don't have a chance.

It also helps to have an itinerary. That's what my mom did. The consul didn't even ask for her papers. Provide the consul with assets like deeds of property, stock certificates, bonds, etc. A Dollar account might help. good.gif

Just curious, what is the asset requirement for a tourist visa?

I don't know if there is a hard & fast amount, I've heard it was 500,000 Php (or around $10,000) but my wife's uncle applied a few years ago to attend a convention (he's in one of those Shriners or something groups) and they said that he deposited too much money in the last 6 months to get above that amount so they denied him. He's the head of the local Rice Growers Co-OP and an established businessman too. Of course this is a 3rd hand account to value it at that.

It also helps to have an itinerary. That's what my mom did. The consul didn't even ask for her papers. Provide the consul with assets like deeds of property, stock certificates, bonds, etc. A Dollar account might help. good.gif

Being a Senior Citizen helps too, or so I've heard.

A similar thing happened to my mom! When she first applied for a tourist visa, she was denied and suspected of embezzling money from an offshore account her personal Dollar account! rofl.gif The lady consul also assumed that my mom was going to the States to look for a boyfriend since she's a widow. LMAO. The second time she went there, the only thing the consul asked her was, "What do you plan to do in the States?". She told him that she wanted to gamble in Vegas then he approved her. My mom's only 48 so she didn't get the supposed leverage that senior citizens have. lol.

Did your wife's uncle ever apply for a visa again?

I don't know if there is a hard & fast amount, I've heard it was 500,000 Php (or around $10,000) but my wife's uncle applied a few years ago to attend a convention (he's in one of those Shriners or something groups) and they said that he deposited too much money in the last 6 months to get above that amount so they denied him.

I would say it does not necessarily mean.. its very easy to get tourist visa..as an insite..i got rich( as in rich) who applied for the 2nd time for a tourist visa.. but what happen..they were denied ..( they used to have multiple entry visa before) and unfortunately for some reasons ..renewing it..they were denied already.. denied entry in the US.. another insite...my mom was a first timer applicant..we are just middle class..never had any background on gping on tours, etc...however all i could say its the satisfaction of the answer to the consule..regardless of what the reason is...normally they gave 1 month - shortest issuance for visa.. the maximum is multiple entry which is 10 years.
