apple21 posted a topic in Tourist VisasQuestions asked by American consul: 1. Where are you traveling? We will travel to Los Angeles, California. 2. What’s the purpose of your visit? We will visit our daughter Apple21. 3. Is your daughter married? Yes. 4. How long has your daughter been in the US? She’s been in the US for 4 years already. 5. What’s your middle name for your single status? (This pertains to my mom’s maiden name.) 6. What’s the status of your daughter? She is a Lawful Permanent Resident. 7. What’s your occupation? I am retired now but previously I was a public school teacher (and my dad was an insurance underwriter). 8. How long will you stay in the US? We will stay there for 2 weeks only. My parents are both 71 years old. They were interviewed together (US Embassy Manila, Philippines). No additional documents needed at the embassy. They just brought their passports and DS160 confirmation sheets. On the DS160 question on WHO WILL SPONSOR YOUR TRIP, they wrote my brother’s name who is also traveling with them. He has a high paying job in the Philippines. He already has a valid B2 visa and he’s the one paying for the airline tickets. They didn’t include my name anymore coz my brother is really the one with the moolah! Lol. Tips: Be consistent. Whatever you wrote on the DS160 that should also be your answer during the interview. Be relaxed as much as possible. Be polite. Be presentable. Wear atleast smart casual as if you’re going to a job interview (yes even for parents!) Don’t stress/bother about additional docs like invitation letters or bank statements/affidavit of support/land or car titles....THEY ARE NOT NEEDED. THEY ARE NOT REQUIRED. Good luck! I hope you get approved as well! 😊
I am recently diagnosed with a renal disease which will eventually require a kidney transplant. I have 2 siblings that are willing to be kidney donors. Unfortunately they are residing in the Philippines. I am naturalized usc with insurance. I have read that if they are going to be a donor, they would have to apply as a a regular tourist. I was wondering if there is anyone here who had gone through the process of applying for the visa for such purpose. I am hoping to get at least a map of what i/we have to do, documents we would need to prepare to help with the application process. Being on the organ donor list would put me in many years of waiting and having to be on dialysis for far longer than i honestly would want. TIA for the response and time reading. Regards MrsSpitze
