    USA Tourist visa

    In July I am going to USA and Canada with a buddy for 5 weeks.

    I am thinking while Iím away my GF may want to go see her father and sister in NY.

    Iím not sure of the USA Tourist visa process, what is the time frame to process a TV, the costs, how long can she stay etc.

    Her current student visa in Australia is multiple entry and valid to September so no issue coming back to Aust.

    Anyone done a USA TV?

    A thai friend just got a tourist visa for USA. IIRC it took one day in Bangkok but I am not sure of the cost. The visa is valid for 10 years (not a typo) and I think she can spend a maximum of 6 months there per trip.

    Don't think Meese's post applied to a TG though... and I think M26 has some stories about getting US visas for his wife...
    My only experience was in a pie making factory managing the gravy team

    All of that can't be further from the truth
    At the consulate in Vancouver you have to book an appointment online
    I think my wife was in and out in 1hour
    And it is also not a long process......they let you know right away at the interview
    They take your passport and it is ready in about 2 weeks

    I think they give out 10 years if you are involved with an American(or live in Canada full time)
    Ao's is 10years, as is some of her friends
    But a lot of her student friends just get a visa for the time that they will be in the US

    also got a 10 year visa..but that does not mean they will let you in..its up to the local guy that processes you when you arrive..so for eg you dont have enough money ..they wont let you in

    My wife often flies to the US by herself to meet me
    They hardly ask her any questions at all
    Just where she is going

    It will be extremely difficult for a Filipina to get a US visa. On a student visa in Aus?Probably no way.
