Getting Married Soon
« on: August 23, 2016, 11:21:51 AM »
Hi,

Mt fiancee and I are getting married soon.

I went to the Taguig City Hall and got a list of paper work that needs to be submitted by both her and I. The list is a little different for me as I am a foreigner and she is Pinay.

One of the things I need to provide is notarised proof that I am eligible to be married. The Canadian consulate will have to notarise my Quebec divorce decree. After that I am supposed to get that notarised document authorised by the Department of Foreign Affairs, at some office in the Mall of Asia.

Has anyone here had to do the last part, go to the Department of Foreign Affairs at the Mall of Asia? I tried looking up their location, and hours of operation, on the web site of the Department of Foreign Affairs but I could not find any address, location, etc.

If not then hopefully somebody at the Canadian consulate will be able to point me in the right direction for that if nobody here knows of the location.

Thanks
Thomas

Hi all,

Thanks for the well wishes. Getting married will change a lot of things here for me, and for my fiancee, but that is for another thread.

Lee, thanks for the information about the Department Of Foreign Affairs.

Should I post here the print out that I got from the Taguig City Hall for the requirements?

Thanks again for all of the wishes.

Thomas

Yes sure, it would probably be of help to others but probably better to start a new topic with a header as to what it is so that others who might need the info, can find it

Hi Thomas,

I got married in January 2016. After I had the Aussie consulate provide the CNI (cert of NO Impediment) I took that to the local Mayor's office. The CNI was added to our marriage licence documents, before someone could do our marriage. BTW, the local Mayor performed our ceremony. It was not necessary for us to visit Dep of Foreign Affairs (DFA) at all. Last month, we attended another wedding, American / Pinay, he was the same as me, with just the CNI & no need for DFA. As both ceremonies were performed by our local Mayor & they submitted the marriage licence thru to the NSO to for registration of marriage. Just be sure you complete the local marriage licence documentation. Congrats bloke.

I got married there in Philippines in October. I didn't have to visit the DFA, but I was never previously married. I only needed the sworn affidavit saying I wasn't married from the US Embassy.

However, the DFA near MOA works very efficiently. My wife got a new passport there with her updated name after the marriage and she was in and out in less than 90 minutes.
There is an S&R Shopping right next to the DFA. I hung out there while waiting for my wife.

Congrats

Congrats to both of you. Have a happily ever after life. That's what we always say to our friends that gets married in Panama.
Good luck to your family.
