Why don’t visa-seekers in the Philippines go to Guam?
Guam’s independent government allows nationals of the Philippines to enter without a visa. Guam is only a three hour flight from Manila.
Guam, though an independently governed nation, is a US territory. Therefore, any baby born there (or in the air above it), is an automatic US Citizen, and a potential visa sponsor for chain immigration.
So why aren’t Filipinas flocking by the plane-full and boat-full to enter Guam?
Citizen of the Philippines DO NEED a visa for Guam!
