Very recently, a fraudulent advisory was widely circulated on social media stating that all current and existing B1/B2 visas are being revoked by the U.S. Embassy. It also mentioned that new B1/B2 visa applications are no longer being accepted in view of the NCOV-19 and the termination of the Visiting Forces Agreement (VFA).
The U.S. Embassy was quick to deny the authenticity of the fraudulent advisory in a posting released on its official website:
The U.S. Embassy in the Philippines is aware of a fraudulent advisory alleging the cancellation/ revocation of tourist visas and the suspension of visa applications. These claims are NOT true.
Please note that U.S. visa policy in the Philippines has not changed. Impostors spread misinformation by claiming to be an official U.S. source. The official U.S. Embassy website at https://ph.usembassy.gov/ and our official social media platforms are the best sources for accurate and current information.
