Anyone please enlighten me on this one. I am a Filipina and i’ve been working in Singapore for 9 years. I applied for a US Tourist Visa sometime in 2012 and got denied which i fully understand why. I was new with my job in Singapore…i was not able to demonstrate my strong ties with family, work etc. Then i met my boyfriend who is a US Military officer when he was deployed in Asia and we are two years now. His deployment ended and so we decided that i have to visit him first while we are working on things until my marriage annulment is over this year. Having said that, i applied for a Tourist Visa last May and got denied. I filed another application and got interviewed last July 11 and again got denied. Here is my status. I would appreciate if somebody could shed light on what is happening and what i need to do to get a visa.
- I have a permanent job on a construction company with good salary. The catch is i joined the company August last year. So basically, i’m less than 1 year working with the company though i stayed 8 years with my previous company.
- I have sufficient funds to cover my trip and stay.
- I traveled to 14 countries it includes several times to Australia and and Canada soon since i got my visa to Canada approved.
Does telling the immigration officer about visiting my boyfriend would help or would do more damage? I would appreciate if somebody could advice me on this.
