My Filipino wife and I (fil/am) have been together 30 years. In that time we have made several trips from the US to PI. This is the first time we have been queried before being allowed to board our flights. The first time was in the US before boarding the Delta flight to Atlanta. The agent wanted to know why we didn't have visas. When I explained we didn't need them as we are issued Balikbayan stamps at entry she wanted proof of my wife being a natural born Filipino, even though that is printed on her US Passport. Next she wanted proof of our marriage. Lucky my wife brought both her PI birth certificate (in Spanish btw) and our marriage cert. We had no problem in Atlanta, maybe because "DOCS OK" was printed on our boarding passes. In Seoul again Korea Air wanted our bonafides before we were allowed to board and we presented them, but after a 15 hr flight our patience was running thin. Have other Balikbayan travelers experienced this? What's up?
