Do not want to be rude but the question leads me to think you never been here, which makes me wonder if you ever met. If you have never been here I can say moving here is not the right choice yet. I love living in the Philippines but it not something to jump into. If you have not met her in person delay getting married for a year, during the time you make 3 visits. Philippine culture especially about family is different, make sure you and the family have common ground rules. if not you may find that none of the brothers will ever work again. there are a number of good message boards about living here join them. a number of good books also. I highly recommend the two books below the certificate from the embassy now requires an appointment, you can made it online
You don’t need any kind of special visa to come here and get married. What you will need is a “certificate in lieu of legal capasaty to marry” from the US Embassy in Manila ir US Consolute in Cebu. To get that document you will need to show divorce/death certificate(s) from any previous marriage (s). You need to be in country for a minimum of 10 days. After you have filed your Marriage Certificate with the NSO (National Statisitcs Office) here in the Philippines you can apply for a 13a spousal visa to stay here perminantely.
When you arrive you are given an automatic 21 day visa. Before the 21 days are up go to any Philippine Bureau of Immigration. Take your passport, copies of the arrival page, info page, your airplane ticket showing return or ongoing date, your wife (orfianceé) about 5,000 pesos for a 38 day extension. Check into getting the 13a visa at that time as they will tell you exactly what you need. Good Luck & Welcome
a gold visa card will be fine, a platinum visa would be better. master card is OK too.
