hello there,

i have read several threads regarding getting married in india, and i have gathered quite enough data about it. my fiance and i plan to get married in india but with the advent of my mother's health condition, my fiance wants to get married in the Philippines instead for the sake of my mom (they're very close, believe me).

now i just want to know if there are couples here who got married in the philippines, and would like to ask for their experiences and even for the exact requirements that the indian national submitted in order to process the application for a civil wedding.

hope to hear from you guys. i know your input will help us greatly. thanks!

We just got married. We have decided not to go back to the embassy as our concerns were not properly addressed, what we did was we consulted a reliable lawyer and it was such a big help. A lawyer knows all the pros and cons...he will advice you that you don't need to go back to the indian embassy

Why not do two marriage ceremonies and show the Indian gov. the Indian wedding stuff.... just a thought.

Another question for Filipinos in India. One of my husband's friends is planning on marrying a Filipino girl. I met her and found out that she only likes meat and rice. She hates onions and chapatis. Do you think this is typical? How do you survive in India if you pretty much only eat meat (especially pork which is hard to get here).

Do we need parents permission if we're age of 30 plus? Do I really have to get certificate of no marriage from NSO or affidavit from a notary public from Phils. or from India is fine?"

fil-indian marriage requirements

Hey u guys, you really have to complete the paperwork required by the indian embassy, only then will they give u your legal capacity certificate.

FOR THE INDIAN NATIONAL:
1. Before you apply for your Philippine Visa, prepare all documents for attestation first. These documents take time (according to my husband's experience). When all your documents have been submitted for attestation in the proper government offices, while waiting for its release you can apply for your Philippine visa.
***regarding the bachelorhood certificate, i understand that there is no specific office in India that would generate such certificate so you just need to make a personal affidavit stating that you are single (etc.) and have it notarized before submitting for attestation.
2. Have your filipina/o fiance apply for your CENOMAR before your trip to the Philippines.

FOR THE FILIPINA/O:
1.original NSO birth certificate
2.original NSO Cenomar
3. Baranggay Clearance
4. and the other documents listed on the Indian embassy requirements. (yes, even when you are 30 or 40 or 50, they require the parental consent.)
5. Have the affidavits "red ribboned" by the DFA (except the affidavit of how u met and ur future plans) even before your fiance arrives because DFA takes 4-5 days.
6. Once your fiance arrives, let him sign the remaining affidavit (of how u met and ur plans) and submit to DFA on the same day.
7. Upon release of all DFA papers, submit to the Indian embassy including his Indian attested papers. If you want to expedite the release of your legal capacity (SAME DAY RELEASE),u will be asked to pay an additional 500 pesos.
8. Then u can finally go to your respective municipality to apply for a marriage license.

GENERAL RULE:
1.Its a tedious process, the Indian national has to stay for a MINIMUM of 2 weeks. This is because of DFA releases and the 10-day waiting period prior to the release of your marriage license.
2.If the Indian National has a deceased parent, he has to bring the death certificate.
3.If the indian national is divorced/annulled, it doesnt matter as long as you generate your BACHELORHOOD CERTIFICATE from India.

Goodluck to you aspirants!

Yes, we got married already. We decided to get married in India to avoid the hassle of producing different documents needed by the Phil gov't in order to facilitate marriage to an Indian national.

We got married in a temple, and have been issued a marriage certificate (MC). Now we are in the process of registering our marriage to the civil registrar to have the gov't-issued MC which is required in the report of marriage to the Phil Embassy.
