Report of Marriage

Any marriage solemnized abroad, where at least one of the contracting parties is a Filipino citizen, must be reported to the Consular Section immediately so that an official record of the marriage could be sent to and registered with the Office of the Civil Registrar-General/Administrator of the National Statistics Office (NSO) of the Philippines. The official record submitted to the NSO serves as legal basis for the marriage abroad to be recognized under Philippine law.

Only marriages contracted within its jurisdiction (i.e. in Jordan and the Palestinian Territories) and, if not solemnized by a Consular Officer of the Embassy, duly recognized as valid and binding by relevant government authorities in the country where the marriage took place may be reported to this Embassy's Consular Section.

For parties who are still planning to get married, proceed to this page for more information on the requirements and procedures for getting married.
