Husband wants to go to USA not to work but to see his eldest sister. Depression hit his sister since my mother-in-law passed away two years ago. We planned to go this year but we prioritized to build up our project first and the rate of the plane ticket from Singapore to Chicago is tremendously high. I checked last night the skyscanner and I am shocked that the fare is now in half. Imagine, $S2,000++ two-way for two pax. Photo: Screenshot from the website. I am quite afraid to be denied by the embassy. Haha! I do not want a record of rejection in passport. Should we go or should not? Gosh! This is a major decision.

I think you should think about it some more and then decide whether you really want to go or not.

She's family and I think it would be important to go, especially considering she has gotten depression from the loss of her mother-in-law. It would cheer her up and help bring her out of her depression if you visited. How long were you planning to visit? You might not need a visa if your stay isn't going to be a long one. It would be a good idea to check with them to see what they have to say about it.

Her mom (my mother-in-law) the one who passes. Since 2012 they are inviting us to their home. Starting from now, we will pray for the best on it. :)

Why should you be rejected? O do not believe that they can refuse to issue a visa without giving a reason. For what I know you should not even need a visa if you go to the United States for less than 90 days. Singapore has signed The Visa Waiver Program (VWP). You only need a passport with an integrated chip (e-passport) and to register on-line through the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA).

Anna.. I am a Filipino residing in Singapore. That is only applicable for citizens in here :) US are very strict in Filipinos going to their country.

@wiLLmaH I thought you were citizen of Singapore, of course the VWP is applied to the nationality and not the residency. No luck.

@hereandthere She is at Chicago together with her husband. Their tita and uncles are at California. What can I say? They are well-knitted siblings.

Why not ? At least you will know if you will pass or not and if not , try again . My husband's auntie wants her ticket to US for September reimbursed by October and said it's for $1400 plus . So that one is indeed cheap.

If all your documents are Ok then there is not any obstacles. I think a visit is a major relief to hubby's Sis.

Unless you can think of a valid reason that you would be rejected, I would go for it. You're only young once.

You should talk to your husband whether you should or not. We have a plan to go in December for a short visit.

He is the one who really wants to go in there. We are panning for 2 weeks only because he cannot go on leave for a long time straight in his company. I hope we can come up with a decision after the first week of August.

I am thinking that too. But we are planning just to stay at home with her sister and talk to her non-stop about what she really feels.
