As you can see, they are not impossible to get, just very difficult. Glad this one worked for you.

The real key is overcoming the presumption of intention to immigrate. Usually if you have a valid reason to visit there, such as seeing family, and have things you don't want to abandon in the Philippines, like a good job, real estate, or something else of value, you will get it. But you have to think it through because I just oversimplified it a lot.

I think my father's case is different. I petitioned my father 4 years ago but after staying here in the US for 3 months he decided to go back to the Philippines and he abandoned his residency here in US. He surrender the 10 year green card then the C.O ask my father only three questions and never ask any papers or documents.

1. What are you doing in the US?

2. How many kids do you have in the US?

3. Why you don't want to live in the US?

After that three questions C.O told my dad to wait 1 week for your visa.

Seems pretty common wherever you apply.


“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”
