Travel and visa considerations become especially important when a foreigner is marrying a Filipino citizen.
Traveling in to the Philippines
For foreigners of many nationalities, getting a visa to visit the Philippines will not be a problem. In most cases you will not need to apply in advance and you will receive a 21 day visa on arrival. This of course does not apply in every situation so check with your local Philippine Embassy or The Bureau of Immigration.
It is also fairly easy to come to the Philippines and keep extending your tourist visa, legally. Check the Bureau of Immigration link for the latest policies and fees.
Traveling out of the Philippines
Generally speaking it is not easy for Filipinos to travel. Immigration agencies of many countries require that Filipinos jump through many hoops before granting a visa. If you are planning to marry a Filipina or Filipino do not assume that just because you marry them they will be allowed to come immediately to your country. Expect an in-depth and prolonged application process, depending upon your country, which will probably involve at least one interview in Manila.
Before moving overseas your Filipino spouse or fiance will need to obtain a Guidance and Counseling Certificate from the Commission on Filipinos Overseas to verify that they have attended the CFO guidance and counseling program in compliance with the Department of Foreign Affairs Orders No. 28-94 and No. 11-97.
