@momsjourney, for my Mom only 1 question...actually it wasn't even a question the CO just said he likes her blouse, the color is the same as the University of Tennessee shirt and he is proud of it.

For my Dad, he was asked:

-How many children do they have?

-How many are in the states?

-Where will they stay when they arrive in the US?

And most are just YES and NO question. Like: Is this 123 street, city/state is the petitioner address?

That's it...

@happyndinlove, Thanks...yeah, the process is a long wait. You have to apply for US citizenship to petition them and have enough dough. :o And tourist visa is mostly hit and miss in PI.

@calibob, not sure yet. Seems like what they found and what I found are the same prices. Maybe varies a $100 bucks. But it already included the taxes and fees. So I think it's just even... What we are afraid of that promo price is that: The promo doesn't have any definite date/flight date. So if you buy tickets from the promos you're in limbo what date you will fly out. If they have an opening they will put you on any available slot. My father wants to have a fixed date so he can map out the date left for him to do stuff before coming here. Also if something were to happened to that flight and needs to be change they might charge you additional fees.

And when they were also canvassing for tickets most of the Travel Agency doesn't have any flight dates for April only March. Some has but it is too expensive like almost $2K each. :wacko:

Thanks TravellingNomad and Mia Sav. It's my parents coming here in US not me. I'm already here.
