    Full ten years ago a visa officer at the US consulate in Manila denied a visa to a Filipina woman saying she was a marriage risk! In 2009 he was visiting the East-West Center in Hawaii and saw a familiar face trimming the trees on the campus of the University of Hawaii. He saw her several times..and finally decided to ask whether he knew her from somewhere..she said he looked familiar but did not know from where..a few days later she remembered..and then asked him “you were the guy who denied me the visa in Manila did n’t you because I will find an American guy to marry? Guess what, that is what I did, in Singapore.” In the end, his rejection of visa gained the US goverment $200 in non-refundable fees…but in the end did not stop her from entering the country!

    Awe well I feel this scenario is looming in my future. My Chinese man is adamant that he will be able to obtain a Canadian Visa in the next 6 months. I mean he has lived in Europe but I dont know if he has enough for these insane visa requirements!… I hate to be pessimistic but my simple google search only brought up negative results. It really sucks I have the freedom of simply paying $50 dollars to get my Chinese visa to go whenever I want but for him its a 9 page tell his entire life story document.
