    Not sure the Embassy has opened up yet for accepting Visa applicants. Best check their site or send a message for the real info.

    It is not a simple question to answer. You probably need to consult an immigration attorney but you could gain some insight by checking the appropriate travel.gov websites.

    You start by looking at a VISITOR visa

    “Generally, a citizen of a foreign country who wishes to enter the United States must first obtain a visa, either a nonimmigrant visa for a temporary stay, or an immigrant visa for permanent residence. Visitor visas are nonimmigrant visas for persons who want to enter the United States temporarily for business (visa category B-1), for tourism (visa category B-2), or for a combination of both purposes (B-1/B-2)”.

    https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/tourism-visit/visitor.html

    Or you could look at IMMIGRATION on travel.gov;

    “Are you interested in immigrating to the United States or want to sponsor someone? The United States provides for immigrant visas based on family ties, employment, adoption, special immigrant categories, and the diversity visa”

    https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/immigrate.htm

    Good luck.

    Based on my experience, these days it is almost impossible.

    Canada might be easier if he has a skill but be prepared to pay.

    For Caada, you can probably immigrate there from the Phils; I should have added this URL to the above post:

    USA is far less costly but is more based on family re-unification.
