Hi,

I know there are ton of threads here already, but it's confusing to get all the information in one place and some of the info is many years old. So please forgive me from re-asking this question, but as of 2019, can someone clarify the following for me:

1. What documentation is needed from my Filipino gf besides the below:
- Passport
- Passport sized photos
- Address Proof
- Cenomar

2. Does the Cenomar (if needed) needs to be authenticated by the DFA in the Philippines?

3. Does she need the NOC from her government for the marriage?

4. Can she come to Mumbai on an e-visa and convert that into an X Entry visa or does she have to come via the "traditional" tourist visa route?

Thanks,
Rahul

What type of marriage are you planning? Are you going via the special marriage act route ?

Sorry to be intrusive..But are you both in the Philippines or in another country at the moment ..

Its far easier to get married in the country of residence and then bring her to India with an X Visa.

You can then have a religious marriage in india if you want.

The marriage process is far more complex in india and I would advise anyone overseas to get it done there rather than in India.

Moreover you do not have to worry about switching visa etc. .

The only reason for marrying in India would be

1..Spouse residing in India and unable to travel overseas before marriage.

2. Planning to permanently relocate to India ( Even in this case if residing overseas it is easier to do it there)

Hi ukdoctor,

Not being intrusive at all. Appreciate the help. Actually it's apparently easier to get married in India vs the PH. We did the research and given that I'm an Indian, it'll be easier for me to handle the government employees. More so, she plans to move here and we intend to settle in India for the time being.

See if this helps ? https://portal.mcgm.gov.in/irj/porta...6a4a71b8482c2d if this does not work, choose Marriage certificate from the Pulldown menu "Online Services" of the home page of the Mumbai Municipal portal - https://portal.mcgm.gov.in/irj/portal/anonymous
