Work Permit For Filipina Fiancee

It is a good idea to ask on our Forum and for sure on our very large mailing list you can join from the link on this page. Others can tell you how it really works, not just what the U.S Embassy says, thought the U.S Embassy does a great job, I recommend you do everything through the Manila office where office hours of the Counselors are longer, and maybe some are more liberal than the local Consulate officer here in Cebu City. I personally have had good experiences with him; admire him for his hard work. But some complain he is very strict. Personally, I like "strict." He is really protecting you, the Filipina and the U.S Government. And that is what he is getting paid for, his job.

How Do I Bring My Filipina Fiancee To The States

Background

If your fiancée is Filipina, and you plan to get married in the United States, then you must file a petition with USCIS on behalf of your Filipina Fiancée. After the petition is approved, your Filipina must obtain a visa issued at a U.S. Embassy or consulate on Roxas, Blvd. or in Manila or at Waterfront Hotel in Cebu City. The marriage must take place within 90 days of your Filipina entering the United States. If the marriage does not take place within 90 days or she marries someone other than you (the U.S. citizen filing USCIS Form I-129F Petition for Alien Fiancé), she will be required to leave the United States. I have know cases myself where the Filipina has married another and they have not deported her, somehow the other man was able to keep her there.

Philippines, One Of The Lowest Aids Rate In Asia

The Philippines, a nation of 84 million inhabitants, has one of the lowest AIDS rates in Asia. Some say if is because almost all men are circumcised or other strange reasons, not that that may not be true. But I think it is because Filipinos are more conservatively sexually than most in this region and the West too. Studies have show, some cited here, how strict social criticism of pregnancy outside of marriage is not respected and what respect of peers means here. Virginity and monogamous relationship are preached by most, practiced by many despite concerns about sex tourism. Few are involved in that from what I see, the masses isolated from it. If not for so many over seas workers, there may be an even lower rate of HIV, AIDS infection.

Filipina Jealousy, Immaturity, Insecurity, Real OR Imagined?

Dear Rufus,

Your wife is very luck, Rufus, and you are rare. I do know a few thousand foreigners and did know a lot before this list nine years ago. You are on target, lots of guys stray who would not even have the opportunity to stray in their own country, on of the perks of being considered rich and successful even if you are not. Filipinas married to Filipinos put up with this because if they don't they, certainly in the lower economic levels, lose support and may get their teeth knocked out. They know men are men and are attracted to pretty girls and there are so may unattached.
