In an interview on Tonight with Boy Abunda, Robin shared that he believes he has a good chance of being approved for visa by the U.S. embassy.

"Mabuting tao naman ako sa palagay ko at hindi naman ako gagawa ng gulo doon. Kailangan ko lang suportahan ang aking asawa," he said.

ABS-CBN news reports that due to his past conviction for possession of illegal firearms, for which he served a two-year prison sentence, the 46-year-old actor has encountered difficulty in obtaining travel permits and visas.
