    1. akala ko din may green card na sya prior to marriage kse matagal sya nagstay sa states before and dun nga nya nameet husband nya sa stay nya na un. I wonder anong us visa gamit nya that time at nakapagstay sya ng matagal.

      Delete
    2. Even B1 B2 visa holders (tourist) can stay there max 6 months.

    3. ang technique kasi sa us visa. dapat nakarating kana sa ibang bansa. humble kadapat ,straight to the point sa interview. tita ko 5yrs binigay sakanyang visa kaya nagtnt na lang sya ,lagpas 10 yrs nasya doon sa us. p.s wag daw mayabang or abnoy sumagot sa interview big no no sa kukuha ng interview. try nyo munang mag ibang bansa sa kalapit na countries mas may chances na mabigyan ka ng tourist visa sa mga malalaking country.

      Delete
    4. wala rin guarantee kahit nakarating ka sa ibat ibang bansa. nung first time ko nag apply sinabi ko lang na manunuod ako ng concert ng isang sikat na band, m young, not enough money or travel history during that time pero sinabi ko lng totoo. i was initially granted a muktiple visa, ung kasabay ko that time andami pa pinakita na stamp sa passport pero waley din.. sa totoo lang minsan swerte lng din tlga walang certain formula

      Delete
    5. Naku, dasal at swerte yan minsan. Ako dati tinanong lng ako ng name at purpose tapos ok na, TRUE story po. Naawa kse ata sakin ung consul kse basang basa ako ng ulan (nung araw kse wala pang telon sa labas ng embassy pag pipila ka for your appointment.

    1. Excuse me? have you lived here? Who died and made you the expert? I lived here almost all my life and I have no complaints. FYI, research and googling are reliable tools to help you. Do it and learn more.

    2. Dun na sya titira to be with her husband, police na ang husband nya dun at nakabili na sila ng bahay, need talaga na may isa na mag compromise

    5. Hindi na baks, war dito war doon sa kung ano anong state. Pero kung meron stable job ka dito at hindi naapektuhan sa covid, better pa rin sya kesa sa Pinas.

    6. And Philippines is a better place to live than the US? people can say whatever they want about the US but I would rather live here than anywhere else in The world.

    7. Exaggerated lang sa news na sobrang gulo sa US na akala mo ay buong US na. Ilang cities lang iyon na usually ay nasa downtown area.

    8. Maybe for people without a degree. So far, maayos buhay if nurse ka sa Northern California. The highest rate per hour in the entire US.

    9. Malaki US te. Generalize ang news. Anong nangyayayari sa New York not necessarily happening in Maine or other states. Think about that.

    13. @3:27, Excuse me too, 1:46 is just giving her thoughts, your response is so rude and bragging. Just respect him/her. I'm not 1:46, though.

      Delete
    14. @3:27 AM, "all your life" talaga? I doubt.
      If you live here in the US that long you should be more flexible to what they say "freedom of speech" Opinion ni @1:46 AM yun kaya wag ka na mag maasim. :-P

      I totally agree with @1:46 AM that the US is not the best place to live. To others, wag na kayong mayamot at wala naman syang sinabi na Pinas ang the best place to live.

      I live here in the past 10yrs. I used to live in many other places/countries as well, some work others for studies so I have the privilege to compare. In my opinion there are lots of other countries na maayos tumira, may mga pangit may magandang palakad. Para sa mga nandito sa US "all their life" na hindi pa nakaranas na tumira sa iba, well, sayang ang buhay nyo. Go out and see the world (after COVID nga lang)

      Delete
    15. 12:03 while it may not be the best place for you to live, I would pick it over any countries where I have lived in Europe for example : Italy and Belgium where people openly display their disrespect and disdain towards a Filipino. Porket pilipino katulong na agad? That’s the kind of disrespect I experienced over there. The US may not be perfect but at least Filipinos get better jobs in different fields and respected kahit pa paano. Hindi yung minamaliit ka. Puro racist racist about sa US eh kamo mga Filipino napaka racist din naman.

    16. 4:49 tama ka and even if wala kang degree you can make a lot of money in the US. I'm pretty sure yung mga nannies esp sa NY earn almost as much as those who work in healthcare since wala silang tax, but that may not be 1:49's main point. Never naging madali para sa mga pinoy na makapasok sa US sa legal na working visa unless sa in demand na field ka nagtatrabaho (and over the recent years those were starting to disappear too, dahil saturted na yung nursing at physical therapy job market and some states actually established rules to make sure na yung mga US citizen ang makakakuha ng mga trabaho na yun, for example hindi ka pwedeng mag major ng nursing sa mga city universities ng new york if you are not a citizen, F-1 visa holder, or a green card holder) at ngayon after ng pandemic at depende sa outcome ng eleksyon, it may evwn be more difficult for filipinos to come here dahil mataas ang unemployment. I heard may mga changes din na gusto nilang gawin sa kung sino ang pwedeng mag apply for a working visa, at kung sino ang qualified na ipetition na family member. Parang mas maganda ang opportunity sa canada kahit pumasok ka sa bansa nila na walang degree requirement yung trabaho na papasukan mo, dahil mabilis ang path to citizenship. So magintay ka man for a few years working a min wage job (not that it's bad, makakasurvive ka parin kahit papaano if wala ka sa major metropolis areas na mataas ang rent or kung may side job ka) once permanemt resident or citizen ka na ng canada ang daming opportunities na pwede mong iaccess, you can even go back to school and obtain an in demand degree. Sa US, madami tayong kababayan na naiiwan sa limbo dahil naoover age, out of status, o nakakamatayan ng nagpepetisyon na magulang, and in the end get stuck in the shadows working hard under the table jobs para makaprovide sa pamilya sa pilipinas. It's not easy being a filipino immigrant in the US, ni hindi tayo qualified for visa lottery and pag pinetition ka ng family member mo you'd have to wait for at least 10 years, unlike immigrants from other countries like bangladesh, poland, etc., unless magpapakasal ka. Kahit yung mga nasa healthcare (you would probably know this too) they have to start from the bottom and work their way up, with companies taking advantage of them and paying them with lower rates kumpara dun sa mga US citizen at sa may mga greencard na, even if in most cases, mas may compassion at mas maayos magtrabaho ang mga pinoy. I'd say Canada is a better option if path to citizenship ang paguusapan.

    17. 12:03, the US is not the place to live pala pero nasa US ka pa rin.

      Delete
    18. 11:09 AM, may free check up sa center baka pwede ka pasalaminan.

      Di ko sinabing, "the US is not the place to live". It is not the BEST though. BUT, I dont mind living here since nandito ang buong family ko. Pero kung may opportunity na kumatok ulit para ma relocate naman sa ibang countries. why not. After all, excited ako palagi lumipat kung saan saang lugar/bansa. Study or work or anything basta legal ang stay at disente ang buhay.

      Delete
    19. 8:25, kaya matagal ang processing ng visa sa US ay dahil may limit per year kung ilang visa ang ibibigay at each country ay may limit din.

      Masyadong maraming US visa applicants na galing sa Pilipinas kaya matagal bago ma-approve dahil mahaba ang pila. Ang ibang bansa ay mas mabilis ma-process dahil hindi kasing-dami ng galing sa Pilipinas ang nag-aapply at ang pila nila.

  13. I have 10 year multiple entry tourist visa, altho di ko pa nagamit. Ayun dito, can stay 6 months at a time. Exit ka for a few days and pwede naman mubalik for another 6 months and repeat cycle. Baka ganyan din visa type niya.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Sa palagay ko nagsawa nalang ang mga kababayan natin dito, and minsan nakakalimutan na natin na yung pilipinas at mga pilipino =/= philippine government. Pag sa ibang bansa ka nakatira, may phase minsan na magagalit ka sa pilipinas pag narealize mo na hirap na hirap ka sa pagtatrabaho sa atin tapos ni hindi mo matustusan yung pamilya mo, samantalang sa ibang bansa nakakaipon ka, nakakapagprovide ka ng magandang buhay sa mga anak mo, etc. Dagdag pa na may mga pilipinong nagtatrabaho sa ibang bansa na minamaltrato at nasusubject sa mga dangerous na situations just because pinoy ka at maliit ang tingin sa bansa mo, at walang ginagawa ang gobyerno. Feeling ko halos lahat ng pinoy na migrants dumaan sa phase na narerealize nila na holy crap, yung cause ng suffering ko sa buhay stems from the fact that I'm filipino, cause kung sa ibang bansa ako pinanganak or citizen, may dignidad akong mabuhay ng maayos.

    Dahil po sa comment ng iba na HINDI maganda tumuira sa States dahil siguro sa mga nagaganap lately. Anong bansa ba ngayon ang WALANG issue?

    Parang sinasabi na rin na mas okay tumira sa Pinas kesa sa States

    Kaya comment ko mas pipiliin ko dito sa States
    1. Merong unemployment kapag nawalan ka ng trabaho

    2. Merong welfare sa mga tamad

    3. Merong medical sa matatanda

    4. Kahit matanda ka na mag aplay ka ng work tanggap ka

    5. Etc etc

    Ikaw anong meron dyan sa Pinas? Na benefits?

Meron din during nurse assisted na mga apartments hello. Wala Lang choice ang mga tao at need mag work. Sa pinas kasi daming tamad. Sa isang pamilya mansan isa Lang May work so meron talagang bantay na tambay.

    7. 1:38 Syempre hindi by choice ang pagtira sa nursing home. kaya lang aminin natin na marami din tlgang pamilya dito ang walang pake sa matatanda. I've been working as a nursing aide in a nursing home here in CA and merong ibang matatanda halos wala nadalaw at tumatawag even pre-covid. Well, ngyn syempre bawal naman tlga ang visits dahil susceptible sila sa sakit kaya doble ingat.

      Delete
    8. @1:38 Grabe k naman na sa Pinas maraming tamad. Wag po tyong judgmental. Hindi porke mahirap e tamad na lahat minsan kulang lng din sa opportunidad. Marami din pong masipag minsan napaglalaruan lng ng tadhana

      Delete
    9. Para kay ate 1:38 Hindi totoo na maraming tamad sa Pilipinas. Mahirap lang din minsan humanap ng work. Mapanglait ka po masyado. Etong pandemic na nga lang ang daming dumidiskarte para lang sa kabuhayan nila

      Delete
    10. 12:53, nagoupunta sa nursing home ang ibang matatanda sa US dahil mga nagtatrabaho ang mga tao at wala silang kasama sa bahay maghapon, paano kung may mangyari sa kanila o atakihin sa puso habang nag-iisa?

      Sa Pilipinas, puro walang trabaho ang mga tao kaya nasa bahay lang at puro tsismis ang inaatupag kaya may kasama lagi sa bahay ang mga matatanda. Puro umaasa lang sa isa o dalawang nagtatrabaho para sa buong angkan o kaya ay umaasa sa ipapadalang pera ng mga nasa ibang bansa.

      Delete
    11. 10:20, kung gustong magtrabaho, meron. Puwedeng magtinda ng fishball o taho.

      Kaya lang ayaw ng mga tao ng ganoong trabaho sa Pilipinas dahil mababa ang tingin ng mga tao doon.

      Delete
    12. anong komunidad po ba yan at ayaw magtinda ng taho at fishball? dito sa lugar namin lahat kung ano ano tinitinda at hindi po tamad mga pinoy sa pilipinas wag nyo na po ipilit yang mindset na yan at wag nyo po igeneralize...nakakalungkot na may mga pinoy na nang dadown ng kapwa dahil nakak angat

  33. Sa mga nag sasabi ng explore the world, have you really tried exploring the world as a brown or black person? Yes there are racists in America as well as Canada but it’s nearly not as bad as racism in Europe and even in some countries in Asia. Have you tried going to these countries na Sobrang homogenous? They look at you with disgust and treat you like poop. At least in the US May variety ang mga tao hindi lng puti. Or kung ano man homogenous na population. Happy for Ruffa Me makaka piling na nya hubby nga todo na to!

    1. Well yes I have. and I don't mean just the European countries by my statement of exploring the world. Oh and btw, I have not experienced racism in my stay in Europe. I know there are a lot of pervs and racist from there and I'm sorry if you have experienced such

    2. We all have our own take on things. If it worked for her living in Europe and things worked better for you in the US, then great.

    6. While I agree that in the US e may variety ng tao, it is also in the US that my kid was bullied badly in school because she is of mixed race. We used to live in Eastern PA and a "karen" would often ask me what my nationality was and if I'm legal to live there. We have eventually decided to settle in SG because of hubby's work and the trauma we have experienced living in the US.

      Delete
    7. I have experienced racism in France but actually it was also a French National who defended me. I was treated so well in Poland where I look so different. I always got the “stare” but I sometimes consider its only because im unusual. In the US, people won’t even give a second glance just because I’m Asian. Alam niyo we all get to experience stuff from places we’re not really from but that shouldn’t stop us from chasing a place that we can call home - wherever that may be.

    8. Akala niyo naman walang discrimination sa Pilipinas. Kapag Bisaya, Igorot, probinsiyano, etc., ka, kung mang-lait ang mga tao sa Pilipinas grabe.

  35. People here trying to make it sound that US citizens don’t travel outside their own country. Very ignorant. If a lot of people think living in the US the best for them then, there must be a reason. I can say the same thing about Canada. I’ve worked there for 8 years. Didn’t like it because of the bitter cold weather. Is the US perfect? Definitely not. Is the Philippines the best place to live in the world? Definitely not but to some people it is. I would always love the Philippines and will be forever hopeful for my home country.
