According to a GMA News TV, the following are steps or tips that could make getting that needed visa easier from Dustin Bradshaw, the foreign service officer of the US Embassy in Manila.
*First of all, be honest. Nothing beats authenticity. This is best to avoid conflicts and problems that may occur in the future.
*An individual must have a good purpose for visiting the US. Visas are not usually issued for use for unimportant matters.
*One must also have a strong reason to return home to the Philippines.
*It is also advised that people applying for visa should not join visa seminars.
*An applicant may prove to be guided and well-oriented with the application process or the latest update if they visit the US Embassy’s official website.
*The bringing of bank documents and land titles are not really necessary. Applicants are advised that they don’t have to bring them at all.
*Of course, the embassy does no discrimination in choosing applicants. Everyone has their equal rights when it comes to the application.
*It is said that there are no quota per day for the number of applicants allowed to apply.
*For those who have been to other countries, this may be good news for you since it’s easier to be approved for a US visa if you have gone to other countries prior the application.
*There is no particular dress code that should be worn upon application but people are encouraged to wear decent attire.
*Lastly, an applicant must be at the embassy 15 minutes before the scheduled interview. Punctuality is always a pleasing virtue.
