Commission on Filipinos Overseas

As you know from reading this site, I just moved back to America a little over a week ago. Now I am preparing to file for my wives Petition for Alien Relative, or better known as Spousal Visa. To file you need to send an I-130 form “Petition for Alien Relative” and an I-325a “Biographical Data” form for both your wife and yourself. Once the petition is approved, you will need to file a G-864 Affidavit of Support to...

Arrived Safe and Well in Las Vegas

At my last post I was still in Inchon, Korea. That was a long experience. There were hotels and rest facilities but keeping on a budget I just walked around or sat at a gate area. Finally the staff manned the gate. I went up and asked if it was possible to get reseated with something with more leg room.

Once you arrive, you will receive a 21 day Visa stamped into your passport. If you intend to...

Rainy Season in Davao

Rainy season, I have joked about a rainy season here. In my mind, a rainy season in Asia is what I had heard of monsoon seasons in other areas where there were huge amounts of rain and it would rain constantly day after day. In the two years living here, I have seen dry hot days and then there would be a break with heavy rains. This would happen all year long. Elena told me to her, the rainy season is January and February. I...
