You’ll need to bring a certified copy of your birth record, a certified copy of your divorce/death certificate. When you arrive you’ll need to go to Manila or Cebu US Embassy and get a “Legal Capacity to Marry” your bride will need to get an NSO Cenomar which shows she is single, she needs to apply for this 8 weeks before your arrival as it can take up to 6 weeks to get. After you get your Legal Capacity to Marry then go to and apply for your marriage license, if your bride is younger then 21 she will need her parents with her for they can sign a consent form. MAKE sure you ask if you need a marriage seminar which you can do while waiting the ten day wait to get your license and also ask if you need any other documents. As for length of stay you get a 21 day stamp when you arrive and you can go to the Bureau of Immigrations and get a 38 day extension which will give you a 59 day stay and if you need longer you can renew for another 59 days up to 2 years, you DON’T need to get a visa before you come it can be done here and you don’t have to leave the Philippines and return unless you’re here for the 2 year stay. I help many get their visa extension and know what I’m talking about. If you planning on getting a visa for your wife to go back to the states you’ll need to this: you will need the following forms: -I-130 -G-325a one for each of you -2X2 Passport pictures two of each of you -Copy of Certified copy of Marriage certificate NSO -Proof of your US Citizenship -Certified copies of your divorce/death certificates -filling fee After completing the above you will send your package to the USCIS Office that is listed for your state. OK, After you have filed the above form and have received notice that it has been received then you need the following forms: -I-129F -G-325a one for each of you -I-134 -2X2 Passport Pictures two of each of you -Proof of your US Citizenship -Copy of Certified copy of Marriage certificate NSO After completing the above these will be sent to this address: U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services P.O. Box 7218, Chicago, IL. 60680-7218 Now, your bride needs to get busy as she will need the following BEFORE her interview to the US Embassy -NSO Birth record -NSO Marriage Certificate -Philippine Passport -CFO Certificate -NBI Clearance -Police clearances from ever place she has lived You can download the needed forms here: http://www.uscis.gov/portal/site/uscis/m…
If you are staying 21 days or less, all you need is your passport. If you are staying more than 21 days, you will need a visa. Maximum stay on a visa is 59 days, although if that is not enough time, you can get a multiple entry visa, stay 59 days, take a side trip to Hong Kong, come back, stay another 59 days, etc.; multiple visa is good for 12 months as I recall. The third option is to get a visa, then upon arrival, apply for an extension; I did that when staying for 3 months straight. Congratulations on your upcoming wedding…send your immigration question and I can answer that one too!
As you say: 1. Your pass port. 2. If you have been divorced in the States you also need your Divorce papers. 3. If you are a widower you need the death certificate of your spouse. 4. You need (LEGAL CAPACITY TO MARRY) You need to go to the U.S. Embassy or U.S. Consulate ( I went to the Consulate in Cebu), and take A: all these papers B: your fiancee with I.D. C: be prepared to answers questions there about how you met and what she does, and she needs to be ready to answer the questions also.(so get her over being nervous) If I can be of further help please email.
