My friend that is getting married does not research what he needs or what is required. Thanks for your information, I will pass it on to both of them.
I remember back when I was married here, none of this stuff was required at all. Only document needed to marry was one issued at the US Embassy as a clearance to marry in the Philippines. As I remember it was free then. Now I think it's like $30us dollars plus one has to have an appointment to visit their office to get the form.
Hmmm-maybe with all the new requirements-I'm single again. If that were true, my wife just might trade me in on a younger model--Hahaha...

Funny when you think about it if the foreigner isn't going to leave and is going after the visa it could be sort of like a green card marriage that women get accused of doing LOL.

Honestly, the Embassy didn't even require me to produce any documents other than my passport to get my "Certificate of Eligibility to Marry". That is because this document is nothing more than an affidavit. If you lie the document is null and void. If you marry in the Phil and still have a wife in the U.S. you are guilty of bigamy.

The fee for this service and any notarizations is now $50 per document. Quite pricey and a hassle to go all the way to Manila for. If time is not of the essence, it's probably better to wait for an outreach visit nearer you.

Because it is only an affidavit I have heard that it is often no longer accepted on it's own and that you also need another document from the NSO similar to what your wife to-be needs, although I can't see what difference it makes as I'm sure the NSO doesn't contact the states. Perhaps it insures you don't have a previous in he Philippines.

Yes Gary, exactly because it is an affidavit. I just went thru the process in November and was required to provide a Certified Birth Certificate, Certificate of Eligibility to Marry and Copy of my Passport Bio page. A No other documentation was required. The wife had to deal with the NSO for her validation of marital status.
