Philippine Immigration:  Tourist Visa Interview


A continuation of my previous post, “Amazing Dubai: How did I get here?”

When I was preparing for my Dubai plan, the immigration interview was one of my major concerns.

As for some people, it’s one of the hardest parts of the plan execution.

We jumped for joy when receiving our tickets and visas, but when we already about to get onboard for our trip,

we get frustrated if we get offloaded because of failing the immigration interview.

So, l am sharing with you the few questions asked to me during the interview.

 1. Who are you going to visit in Dubai?

2. How are you in relation to her? 

3. What is your degree? Which school did you graduate?

4. How long is your stay in Dubai?

5. Are you currently working right now? What is your job and where? Do you have any plans leaving your job here?

6. When is your return date? 

It doesn’t sound scary, right? What I mean is, you can answer the questions right away if you just come prepared and reviewed your documents.

So, here’s my advice:

1- Come prepared.   You already spent too much for your visa and ticket, so why not prepare your answers for the interview? PRACTICE. Write it down! 

” By failing to prepare you are preparing to fail. “— Benjamin Fanklin

2- Take Vitamin C – “Confidence” and confidence will only come when we are prepared. 

” One important key to success is self-confidence. An important key to self-confidence is preparation. ” – Arthur Ashe

3- The eye to eye contact. Don’t forget this important tip when having interviews. As we know it, the interviewer will determine how sincere you are with your plans when you focus your attention to them.

” Effective eye contact with the interviewer conveys confidence, enthusiasm and trust. ” – Chicago Tribune

4- Dress for success. Remember, first impression always last. And you know it, looking good actually boost your confidence.

” It is always better to be over-dressed than under-dressed in an interview. ” But not over-exposed.

5- Pray Hard. Only God knows the desires of your heart. When he knows you are prepared and ready, he will surely make your dreams come true. Miracle happens when you believe. Have faith!

” Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.” – Proverbs 37:4

All the best for your plans. Always do your best coz you’ll never know if you’ll get a second chance. THANK YOU! 🙂



Remember, ” You make your plans, but God direct your actions.” Proverbs 16:9
