Applying for a US Tourist Visa in Australia | USA 2018

***Skip to 02:00 to ignore my back story gibberish… πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜…***

Hey guys! Just sharing my experience on how I got my US tourist visa a few months ago.

Being a permanent resident in Australia, I’m still using my Philippine passport so I’m not entitled to visa-less travel (read: ESTA) to the U.S., and therefore need to go through this process.

I’m excited to fly over and spend some time with my family. And just in time for the holidays, too. ❀️

      Hi Aura, what year gani ka nilarga padung australia? Nag transition ba ka from student to working and then working to PR visa? Pwede mo ask sa imong timeline?

      +Lovely Villas You’re welcome! 😊

    • Lovely Villas says:

      heyitsaura thanx for the info…

      +Lovely Villas Yung sa interview ko po, hindi na hinanap but I brought them with me (para sure). I guess mas maluwag sila pag Australian permanent resident. I would assume na mas strict sila pag naka temporary stay visa lang yung applicant so it’s best to have the supporting documents on hand in case they ask for it.
