As far as I know, this is only offered in Manila (not really helpful for you in Bohol). Also, make sure that you get the NSO Certified copy of your Marriage Certificate.

My Fiancée and I will be married later this year and we have a trip already scheduled for both Hong Kong and Tokyo for our honeymoon. She already has her passport but obviously it is in her maiden name since we are not yet married.
So that we are not delayed or detained on our honeymoon, all she needs is this CFO Brief/Certificate and an NSO Certified Copy of our Marriage License? My first question is what is the CFO Brief??? And where do you get it? (I have no idea what the initials CFO stand for and it is not previously explained in this thread).
The NSO Certified Copy of the Marriage License I am assuming, is available from the same office where the marriage license is actually issued?
