    Been over 55 years since I have been in the USA, but this is a site that seems complete in way of relevant information. Have a safe trip!

    When you arrive at destination airport, stay in the same passports line as your wife.
    When you come back to the Philippines, tell your wife to ask the immigration officer for a BB-stamp for you (better than being a tourist).

    Sounds like good advice. What's the advantages of a BB stamp and how long is it valid for?

    The advantage is you can stay 1 year on the BB Visa with out any monies paid (free) After the one year you must than renew Tourist Visa for 6 months or 2 months depending on the allowances at that time. In total you can renew that Tourist Visa a total of 2 years giving you the combined stay of 3 years.
    Than you must exit the Philippines for more than 24 hours at least and come back in doing it all again.

    Something I like about this forum is people give straightforward and accurate answers.

    Now that I'm off topic I might as well meander a bit.
    Grammar is what it is but Spelling, it has recently come to my attention there is a difference between "grey and gray".
    Grey is a colour.
    and
    Gray is a color.

    I know where the door is!

    Actually your well on topic as "Grey" refers to those illegal Aliens that always seem to abduct persons past 9pm, never to be caught, are only seen by Idiots and have never acquired a VISA.

    If a cold destination, bring warm weather gear. My wife froze in Seattle in June.
    Have a safe fun journey
