Gusto Mo Pumunta Sa US? Don’t “Lie” In Visa Applications

KUNG BISITA o turista ka lang sa United States, hindi ka makakaligtas kung magsisinungaling ka.

Nag-warning si US State Secretary Rex Tillerson sa mga bisita na manggagaling sa mga bansang nagre-require ng visa na iwasa ang “deliberately lying” sa kanilang visa applications “or face dire consequences”.

Sa bagong guidelines na inilabas ng US State Department sa mga immigration and consular offices sa ibang bansa, sinaad ditto na ang mga mamamayan ng mga bansang ito na nangangailan ng visa upang makatuntong sa America, tulad ng Pilipinas, ay kinakailangang mag-file at ilahad ang plano tatlong buwan o higit pa bago ang takdang pagkuha ng visa.

Kung hindi mabanggit ang tunay na intention sa pagbisita, at ang mga dahilan dito, sa kanilang interview sa local Consular Offices, tulad ng pagpapakasal sa isang American citizen o paghahanap ng trabaho, ito ay ituturing na “deliberately lying” sa kanila application pa lamang.

Sinabi ni Tillerson sa kanyang kalatas na ang mga violators ay mahaharap sa ineligibility sa muling paga-apply o sa pagbabago ng status. Maari ding ma-deport kung sila ay mahuling nanatili pa sa United States territory.

Ang mahigpit na kautusang ito sa pagkuha ng visa applications ay naaayon sa crackdown sa illegal immigrants ng Trump administration. Lalo pang hinigpitan ang mga requirements sa legal immigration. (Ehlorra Mangahas)
