    Just curious, but why are you recently putting an asterisk after all your sentences?

    Peter, this is one of those things that would have gotten a reply from the Late CC.

    No way Jose. cccccccccccc This would be my guess for his reply.

    At this very moment, they are giving out USA tourist visa like candy. My daughter's grandfather's brother (what would be the name for it?) just received 10 year visa. He is like 65 or so and only has a small colmadito in one of the Barrios of Haina. Not even a car to his name, though he has some land and other properties.

    My wife didn't get any candy when she went there. A friend of mine who is a detective in Florida sponsored his girlfriend here who has a full time job. She didn't get any candy either.

    His age probably had a lot to do with the approval. He is more likely to return as he would have a hard time finding a way to support himself at that age in the States. And the fact that he owns property and a business. No matter how small.

    You can not sponsor someone for a tourist visa. The applicant is asked if they will be paying for the trip, or if someone else will be paying. If your friend was paying, then his information would have been needed.

    But the decision on whether to grant the visa or not is based on the likelihood that the applicant will return to DR. If they can demonstrate that this is the case through property titles, employment, family ties, etc. They are more likely to be approved.

    Trying to figure out if she had that done when she recently got her passport. She was fingerprinted but not sure if it was a scan or ink. As many of you have found out, they've started doing that for entry into DR.

    I was trying to make this very point. They are indeed granting US Tourist Visas like confetti.......The girl in my partner's hair salon was granted one last week......she's unmarried with no children and her only income is $15,000 per m onth......she provided the Embassy with a letter that her uncle would buy her tickets

    It doesn't matter what was done at the Dominican passport office. It must be done by US Immigration at the VAC.

    Do you have any statistics to back that up? Otherwise, I think you are just creating a false sense of hope for those looking to get a US tourist visa. I'm also aware of several cases just like you mentioned that you would think wouldn't stand a chance of getting a visa. I also know of just as many cases of people who have tried 2,3, 5 times w/o luck and were much more qualified than the girl you mentioned.

    However, it's only going to cost you $160 to try. You never know, you might just get lucky.
