Me and Maria are still going just as strong :D

I thought it may just be a passport needed for a simple visit from cebu city to the united states, but it is also a visa, and she is concerned that she will not be approved...what is the best and most reliable way to get her able to come over here, the soonest, for a simple two week visit?

She has about a 10% chance of getting approved. If she has property and a business in the Philippines they may approve it. If she is single and under 30 from the province it's just not going to happen.

The fastest way is K-1 Visa. Don't waste your/her money on a Tourist Visa. - do a search on-line to find more info.

As others have stated getting the Tourist visa is sort of like winning the lottery, most do not get approved.

The K-1 is quicker than a CR-1 by many months.

I'm not sure how I could get past the proof of togetherness for the k1 without her coming to actually get the proof..

I guess we could both meet in a country that's sort of in the middle of the usa and philippines.

Sorta gives you a dislike of your country when it denies you access to your loved one, I wish the politicians would come on here and actually give a darn about all the people who are trying to make things work.

The country's not to blame.

Blame all the thousands of people who have abused the tourist visa.

Quite simple, you fly to the Philippines. ;) No one will deny you from traveling to the Philippines, you even get an automatic 30 visa upon arrival.

I will go over, it was her preference to come here first to meet my family and all, but simply not seeing her is not an option, now I am hoping to have better luck once we do submit the k1

Thanks for all of your replies ^

My wife and I met in Singapore. It's a nice safe country. It is very much like America with an Asian flair, so you wont feel out of place. Best of all, the national language is ... English! Singapore has great sights to visit and even a Universal Studios. It's a short trip by plane from the Philippines and Filipinos do not need a visa to enter.

I say go for it, really !
