Date : 06 December 2012

We refer to your e-mail of 30 November 2012. We wish to inform you that
the Commission on Filipinos Overseas’ (CFO) Online Pre-registration does
not automatically reserve a slot for the Guidance and Counseling Program
(GCP) or other seminars conducted by the CFO. Attendance to CFO seminars is on a walk in, first come, first serve basis. It was created to lessen time spent in filling-up the registration forms during the client’s visit
to our office.

Spouses, fianc&#233;(e)s and other partners of foreign nationals who completed
the GCP may use the Online Pre-registration upon receipt of their spouse,
fianc&#233;, immigrant or residence visa.

Best regards.


Ariel T. Cruz (sgd.)

I filed a complaint to Sec. M. Nicolas about this, citing how much easier it would be if their online procedures were similar to that of the NSO or even the NBI, to no avail.
Hi,

"Spouses, fianc&#233;(e)s and other partners of foreign nationals who completed
the GCP may use the Online Pre-registration upon receipt of their spouse,
fianc&#233;, immigrant or residence visa."

Correct me if I am wrong. The way I understand the message I quote is the online pre-registration is only applicable for those who already attended the seminar and got the visa. Fill up forms and print and bring back to CFO office. It doesn't apply to those who wants to secure a place to attend the seminar.


The link for the online pre-registration only confused us and its not so helpful. To register and to get sticker from CFO is walk in any day during their office hours. Download the registration form, fill up and bring it back to them together with the necessary documents. No more que.......

I believe it is for emmigrants
I really think its not for us because when you have attended the seminar already then got the visa. Download the registration forms fill it up and then bring to them any day of the week office hours, no que. Wait for the passport, finished.

Hi Tresha
If you are call CFO anyway can you ask if you can get the CFO sticker in Manila airport (this is nothing to do with seminars), this might be a new option instead of going back to cfo at manila prior to departure. If you already have completed the seminars prior

Frankly I can't see the point of my fianc&#233; attending the CFO seminar. She's been living with me in Perth, Australia for 2 months now while we wait for her offshore PMV to be granted.

Of what benefit is the CFO seminar to her?

I stand to be corrected , but as I understand once she goes back to the Philippines she will not be allowed to leave without the CFO sticker in her passport.
