Sorry for the down-time kanina, I've sorted it out, everything should be back to normal.
Hi All, I hope everyone is well and also your family. As a way to extend help during this time of crisis, Visa Consort in partnership with Pinoy AU, would like to offer further reduced rate (for a limited period) to anyone who would wish to engage a migration agent service. If you have conducted your research, you know that their rate is one of the most affordable in the market. Please click here for more details about the offering.
Welcome to the New and Upgraded Pinoy AU Forum! We have only updated a couple of times since 2010. Apology it took some time. Some of the features are still being migrated. Please feel free to report here or email me at [email protected] if you will encounter any issues. Thank you.

Has anyone with Aus PR applied for a US tourist visa? Madali lang ba or strict pa rin?

    Literal 5 minutes, dalawa kong friends na nagsabi like sobrang bilis lang. Mas matagal pa yung preparation nila ng documents at paghahanda sa sarili before the interview. Di ko alam kung factored in na ANZ sila nagwowork pero ayun lang tinanong sakanila.

    What's your occupation and why are you going to US?
    **
    To follow up kung nalaman nila agad na 10 years yung binigay sakanila. I will ask them.**

    Based sa experience ko when I applied last 2014, medyo mabilis lang yung interview. Naka working visa pa lang din ako during that time. Binigay ko muna yung documents ko tapos they asked me to wait for the interview. Tinanong lang kung ano yung purpose ko ng pagtravel sa US. Tapos sinabi lang na wait for my passport kasi send nila. Pagreceive ko ng passport, dun ko lang nalaman na 10 years multiple entry (I did not ask nung nasa consulate ako)
