Anyway, did you file the marriage contract in the LCRO within metro manila or the province?
Thanks much Tangerine

Yup, registered in Manila City hall.
Got married in there too.
But due to my job I had to be in Davao (which is my hometown),
That's why I wasn't able to do the follow up for the transmittal thing.
I'm just hoping it's available nowadays.

CFO = Commision for Filipinos Overseas

Make your life easy do the seminar 1 or 2 days before you lodge your application. The seminar is a requirement so do it upfront. In Cebu, you need to be there around 6am as they only take 12 people for the seminar. If you are travelling from a province like Dumaguette, go the night before and physically locate the CFO office as it is a bit hard to find and be there the next morning definitely by 6am (not filipino time or you will miss out). You will meet lots of other ladies there doing the same thing. Once you have the necessary seminar stamps then lodge your application, that will be the next day as it is not possible to do both in 1 day. Make sure you take lots of photocopies of the requirements. There are many stories about how tough the nuns are in asking very personal questions in Cebu. I know a few people who went to Cebu CFO and there was no problem.

Hi sar_g,

Just to clarify, the CFO certificate (and label) is not a requirement of the DIAC. It is a requirement of the Philippine government for all spouses, partners and fiancees of foreign nationals departing the country on partner visa.

You may choose to attend the CFO seminar after lodging your application
(1) while waiting for your visa to be granted, but you will have to return for them to affix the CFO label to your passport upon visa grant,
or
(2) after you receive your grant letter so that you get both certificate and label on that same day.

By the way, in Manila, the nuns are no longer involved in counselling; I don't know if the same holds true in Cebu.

For more information, please refer to a thread started by chrisb about a week ago, entitled CFO-Philippines.

~ Nina
