An online news about the ‘No US Visa‘ for Filipinos traveling to United States is a hoax.
The Philippine Embassy in Washington D.C. has released a statement saying that the news is fake.
“The embassy of the Republic of the Philippines would like to inform the public that there is no truth to what appears to be an online news report that the United States has announced a ‘no visa’ policy for Filipinos,” the embassy said in a statement posted on its website.
The fabricated news came from The Adobo Chronicles, which the embassy referred to as a “satirical piece that should not be taken seriously”.
The site claimed, “The State Department today announced a life-changing new policy for Filipinos. Visas will no longer be required to travel to the United States. The policy to take the Philippines off the list of countries whose citizens are required to obtain visas for travel to the U.S. is effective immediately.”
“The US Department of State has denied making such an announcement,” the embassy said.
