It just occured to me…
I just got off the phone from one of my friends in Nu Yawk. I’ve been wanting to visit
Bergdorf Goodman Barneys and my friend Tinsley Mortimer him for ages so I went to the US Embassy website to check the requirements and procedures for a tourist visa. I know these things change from time to time so it’s best to do your research. You go check it out yourself. If you don’t get overwhelmed with the amount of information on that page then you must be something else. I had to close my browser after 30 seconds, talk about information overload. My eyes oh my good lord my precious eyes. It’s pretty much the same requirements as other countries — the same usual bullcrap paperwork blah blah blah — except they want everything else, like your nonexistent first born child.
IMO, I should be the least of the embassy’s worries. Think about it — when my life sorta kinda revolves around my blog, do you HONESTLY, HONESTLY think I’m gonna go online as soon as I get out of the mail
order bride plane and say "OH HAYY GUYS I JUST LAND HERE IN ESTADOS UNIDOS ME I’M GOING TO BE AN ILLEGAL ALIEN I NO COME BACK TO FEELIPEENIS OKEY????" LOL.
On a serious note, maybe one of you can answer my question. I know you’re **NOT** allowed to work on a tourist, B-2 visa. That’s already given and it totally makes sense. Why work when you’re ON HOLIDAY????? But if you are a full-time blogger, does that mean you’re **NOT ** allowed to blog (because that’s "work") considering you’re getting paid to blog/you get income from blogging WHILE being in the USA? For instance, I may be in the Philippines right now but I’m getting income from the ad networks in the USA — what if I go to New York like tomorrow? Remember how Perez went to Australia not too long ago to host the MTV awards or whatever. Did he blog/worked whilst on a tourist visa? Probably.
Anyway, that’s what worries me right now. I don’t know about you but the thought of INS people knocking on my hotel room door at 3AM just to get me deported for blogging online about shoes I bought and how I roamed around the statue of liberty wearing nothing but a thong is some serious scary shit, don’t you think? I know American immigration authorities are on a roll, revoking visas of European/British entertainers like Lily Allen and the likes so it’s best to play it safe.
What do you think? Does anyone know some sort of an immigration lawyer who can answer that question for FREE? Free because I’m pretty, no doubt about that. Any advice is appreciated. Oh and Perez, Trent and Michael K, y’all better back me up bitches we’re gonna throw a huge gangbang in my honor as soon as I get my fat ass ova there. Just kidding.
