I attend the CFO Seminar already as it was one of the requirements in getting my new married passport. I have a CFO Certificate that I have to show if I am traveling using a tourist visa. I just need to go back when I get my spousal visa and get a sticker so they can put it on my Philippine Passport.

Mahal:

What you need to know...
As Filipinos going abroad as fiancé(e)s, spouses or other partners of foreign nationals, you are required to attend the CFO's guidance and counseling session in order to secure the Guidance and Counseling Certificate (GCC) and the CFO sticker. You need this certificate to renew or
apply for a new passport at the Department of Foreign Affairs ( per Department of Foreign Affairs Order Nos. 11-97 Implementing Rules and Regulations for Republic Act 8239, "Philippine Passport Act" and 28-94 ). You will also need to present this certificate together with your spouse/
partner visa, at the Immigration office at the international airport on your day of departure.

To attend the Guidance and Counseling program of the CFO, you may proceed at CFO Manila or Cebu Office . You will have to bring with you the required documents to be accommodated in the counseling seminar. The counseling session runs for a minimum of four hours and is meant to
provide you with adequate information regarding inter-marriage and migration, the cultural and social realities abroad as well as available support networks for women in distress, among others.
After you comply with all the requirements and finish the counseling session, you will be given the Guidance and Counseling Certificate which you will have to bring along with other pertinent documents , to the CFO, for registration.

Once you already have your valid passport and spouse/partner visa, you will need to register with the CFO and received your CFO Sticker which will be affixed on your Philippine passport.

Important Notes:

The CFO has offices in Metro Manila and Metro Cebu. Visit the offices where it is most convenient.

Please check the schedule of the counseling session before proceeding to CFO because it
is country-specific and the slots are limited only to 15 per session . It is on a first-come-first-serve basis.

You may avail of the Guidance and Counseling Session even while you are still processing or waiting for your visa. If such is the case, you will only be issued the GCC. Once your visa is released, you will return to CFO to continue with your registration. The CFO sticker will then be affixed on your passport.

You will pay a counseling fee of PhP 400.00.

Hi Mahal, sorry for late reply as I only had the chance to log on this afternoon. Just like you, I'm getting really bored.

The link that gorgeous sent contains all the information that you need to attend the CFO seminar. Please be there early for the 2pm-5pm schedule(the receptionist suggested 7am!) because once the 15 slots are filled up on an assigned day, they cannot accommodate any more. And they do NOT accept reservations for the next seminar schedule. (I have complained about this system and have written an email to the CFO chairperson Imelda Nicolas but have not received any reply.) I pity those applicants coming all the way from the provinces.

One more thing, the CFO building (at the corner of South Superhighway and Qurino Avenue) is not very accessible by public transportation. You'll have to take a cab to get there, or be dropped off by private vehicle.

Marianina
