Short answer, is not required. However, she will need to get the CFO Brief/Certificate before you travel together. If she doesn't do that, you run the risk of her being turned away at the Immigration line in the Airport (not 100% but it does happen regularly). 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 wife also has a Philippine passport and I the US passport, we married in WA state but she traveled where ever she wanted to and from Guam (was stationed there), shouldn't be any restrictions on her as long as the Philippine passport is up to date.

She did have some issues when she came to see me in the states, after retirement I went back to the US and they gave her trouble one time (lady Immigration officer) for some reason they didn't believe her, that she's coming to see me from the Philippines but she also carries her military ID, it shows i'm retired, after seeing that they left her alone.

I have heard of young women OFWs travelling alone when going back to Hong Kong after a trip home having problems at immigration.

What has been happening (especially at Clark), any filipina travelling with a foreigner gets grilled (under the guise of fighting human trafficking). If the filipina is a partner of the foreigner that she is travelling with, more often than not she is denied exit from the country and has to get the stupid CFO Briefing and Certificate (even though the brief is designed for filipinas marrying foreigners). Before we got married, my wife was stopped twice and grilled for about 15 minutes each time. She and I kept our cool and made it through without getting the CFO Certificate.

To get the new passport in her married name, the CFO Certificate and NSO Certified copy of the Marriage Certificate are required.

I would suggest biting the bullet and go through the pain of getting her passport changed. Officially she no longer carries her maiden name so for completeness best change it.

jon1, is the NSO Certified copy the one with the blue NSO stamp in the upper left corner? Can you get a copy that ISNT NSO certified??

Also, mine came with the Original Receipt from the NSO. Do we need to keep the OR with it, or its not considered "official" without the receipt? (Like some people consider the LTO Drivers License un-official without the OR).

Thanks!

I think the certified copies are on coloured paper, can't remember if it was blue or yellow.

The Official copy of the NSO document is on Yellow paper (with blue stamp on the left corner). My wife did not have to present the OR with it when applying for her new passport (with her married name).
