 Senator Ronald "Bato" dela Rosa’s US visa has been cancelled on Wednesday, January 22.

Dela Rosa confirmed this in a separate text messages to reporters that his US visa had been canceled and was told to re-apply if he wants to secure a US visa again.

He said the cancellation of his US visa in a text message: "Yes. They officially answered my official query."

The senator said he received the official response of the US government to his query only last January 10.

"No date given basta mag-apply lang daw ako uli kung gusto ko, kasi the present visa was canceled," Dela Rosa said.

Bato said that he did not know when the specific date when his visa was canceled. It was supposed to expire in 2022.

He was prompted to inquire about the status of his US visa because of the rumors that it has been canceled which circulated last month.

“I have heard rumors about it, but I have not received any official confirmation [from the US Embassy in Manila]. But I’m planning to send them a letter,” Dela Rosa said during that time.

According to Politiko last December, Washington cancelled Dela Rosa's US visa as it reinforced its elimination on human rights violators.

The former Police chief turned politician, was the one who designed the Duterte administration's bloody campaign against illegal drugs when he was the chief of the Philippine National Police (PNP).
