Update:

Dianne's interview tanked and was an utter disappointment, as well as a ripoff. They were only given 2 min by the mean lady interviewer and NOT even allowed to speak or present their evidence/documents that show that they have a life in the PH and likely to return back home and not overstay in the US!

@Winston are you married to Dianne? If not, what might have played against her is that she is not your wife and you can only be her sponsor, even if you're the father of her child.

Also, does she have a stable job over here? I know that the best way to show the embassy that, as a Filipino, you are meant to be back, is a letter of employment from your employer stating the role, employment and even salary, and the fact that you are taking a holidays or even a sabbatical between such and such dates.

No I am not. Well how would she show a letter of employment? The interviewer lady refused to see anything and told her not to speak unless spoken to. However, the application did contain forms to mention her employment. I guess you have to have a high paying job for years or something.

I know the cases of a few Filipinos in my chef team who went over to Europe (2 to Paris, 1 to Prague and 1 to near Rome). They all had to have the franchise company's employment letter, stating that they were entering Europe to do specialised training and they would be back to their job by the specified date.

This is documentation that should be attached to the application, not brought on the day of the interview. Embassy interviews are famously short.

You don't understand. This was an online application. Not paper one. There was no way to attach anything to it, otherwise I would have of course. See here: https://ceac.state.gov/GenNIV/Default.aspx

The European Schenegan visa is easier to get than the US tourist visa. It just requires paperwork and money in her bank account. A travel agency could get her the European tourist visa for a price. We already investigated that option, but that would be for touring Europe, not America.

90-Day Fiance has advertized in this forum. If it were easy to get girlfriends tourist visas, how would that shot '90-Day Fiance' stay on the air? The men, or women, go for those visas where they have 90 days to marry...probably...because they can actually get those visas. If they could realistically get them a decent tourist visa without having to marry in 90 days, they probably would go for that option.

I got my wife a tourist visa in 1999. We were engaged to be married in Jakarta right before the trip. I am not sure what we showed them. Maybe we'd paid for the venue or whatever. We were both young and they might have thought that I looked good enough for a pretty young woman like that to want to marry me and not just ditch me for a job at a Chinese restaurant when we hit the ground. :) I worked in ESL and my salary was not huge but it was enmormous for Jakarta standards at the time. But this was pre-9/11. If we'd married now instead of then, I might have had to not mention the Jakarta wedding, apply for a 90 day visa, and get legally married in the US, too or something like that.

I heard, several years ago, that the embassies in a lot of countries are very restrictive in giving out visas for people between the ages of 16 and 60 something-- years when people work. There are a lot of foreigners from certain countries who do not return when the visa expires. The wages are so much higher in the US. If a Filippina or Indonesian could violate the visa and get a job working in a Chinese restaurant for $1800 a month, a shared apartment with other employees, and free Chinese food, under the table and tax free, that is a lot of money to send home to mom and dad and to save to start a business in the FIlippines later. They may get paid more than that. It's just such a big temptation when you compare how much service jobs pay in those developing countries.

I think they do give out the visas more to the wealthy, since working illegally does not appeal to them.

For those kind of in the middle, I wonder if it would help if they invest in a US LLC that actually makes some money. Even if it does not make them wealthy, I wonder if it just presents a legitimate reason to go to the US for business purposes and support a foreign investment in the US economy (with time and attention) if that would make a compelling case. If it is a different category of visa, the rules might be different.
