My wife is very near on being granted her spouse visa for australia. (we think anyway, its been over 4 months, could be any day now really).
I called the Philippine Embassy here in Australia (Perth) some months ago now, Told them of our situation (applying for spouse visa) and asked if we need to register our marriage with them.
The guy on the phone said NO because thats only if she wants to change her name on her passport.... Well she doesnt want to do this (at the moment) So we left it at that.

Now the CFO is telling her that we need to register our marriage with them in order to attend this seminar. So ive got conflicting information here.
To register our marriage with the embassy in australia is alot of stuffing around and will cost us time. Because the want original/certified copies of everything, so mailing everything backward and forward from PH is time.

My question..

Do we need to register our marriage at the Philippine Embassy in Australia in order to proceed with the CFO seminar and get the CFO sticker?

Thanks everybody, were so unclear about everything right now.
Hi ChrisB,

If you got married in the Philippines you only need to present the original marriage contract and one copy on security paper from the NSO. I haven't posted enough messages here to paste the link so just type CFO PHILIPPINES in google. Hope this helps.

Congrats dbabie! It's been quite a wait but it's worth it! Go, book him a flight NOW! You may want to book his flight through IOM (http://www.iom.int/cms/en/sites/iom/...ion-fares.html) which offers concession fares to migrants (e.g. increase in allowable check-in baggage). Just learned about this in CFO seminar yesterday; wish I've known this before I booked my flight.
