    Thanks for the info, sa immigration officer sa point of entry (arrival?) pala na-dedetermine kung gaano katagal ang stay. I might avail of the VWP (Visa Waiver Program) though if i decide to visit some relatives in the U.S.

    dapat naman talaga magbihis ka kasi gumastos ka na ng 4,500 each eh

    first interview ko in the 90's I wore lightblue long-sleeve shirt + tie + office slacks. my dad told me to wear formal. and this is what happened, the consul asked us to line up like a family photography nun last parts ng interview, he smiled and then viola 10 years bawat isa kami.



    yun interview ko naman 3 weeks ago, I wore a Lacoste Plaid Polo + brown Marlboro Classics slacks + my most expensive brown leather shoes. yun pinakamahal sa arsenal ko ng damit hehehe. tapos habang nag-aantay medyo nag-popose ako sa surveilance cameras and medyo behave sa pag-upo. always pleasant looking at courteous. malay nyo may taga-observe na pala sila sa cameras pa lang to observe the applicants tapos iraradyo na lang sa consul kung pretender ka. while others were waiting, I spent time looking at the old B&W photographs of the US embassy with awe and amazement. kasi yun ang isa sa mga reasons ko pag tinanong ng consul, i'll accompany my wife who's interest is in photographing popular tourist scenes.

    i was also asked kung ano history ko, kung ano biz ko before and after and now. I mentioned this family business, an i-cafe (i opened an i-cafe mga 5 months), a computer supplier business, then graphics development. grabe nakakunot noo pa din yun consul, and then I mentioned my current business. umaliwalas ang muka nya. parang natuwa siya bec. I mentioned an American photolab franchise business na binili ko last year. kaya nga ngaun, kakausapin ko na ang Fedex, gusto gusto ko tlaga magkarun ng franchise ng Fedex. iba talaga pag may pangalan. and so yun they approved us. a week later, yun passport namin binalik via mail, 10 YEARS again!!!

    oo nga pala para dun sa mga mag-renew. dalhin nyo yun old passport nyo with old US VISA. all the while I was telling my mom na wag na nya dalhin yun mga old passports kasi pabigat lang pero hinahanap ng consul tapos may tinatak siya. buti na lang hindi nakinig mom ko sakin.

    =====

    meron nga pala nangyari nun time na andun ako, yun husband approved pero yun wife denied. sabay sila ininterview nun ha. what the consul did was he ask the wife to seat muna and he talked to the husband. after a brief talk, the consul told the husband: "i'm sorry, pls give this to your wife." yun passport ng wife bale pinapabalik pero sya approved. dun ako talaga natakot kasi wife ko first timer eh din and our number is near na. talagang parang maiiyak yung dalawa palabas ... kakaawa.

    I was working in Occidental Petroleum before, sinuot ko lang yung OXY jacket ko over my shirt. The consul just asked me if i work in OXY? Yun na! 10 yrs multiple entry visa na!
    Sabi nila mahigpit na raw ngayon. Sabi ng friend ko ay iwasan nyo yung mga Vietnamese/Chinese-looking consuls(no offence sa mga Tsinoy), suplado daw at madaming na-semplang sa interview.
