Hi I plan to come to Cebu later this year to marry my sweet heart she wants to live there as do I because i want her near her parents . My question is once i enter with the passport stamp how do i go about extending it until i can get married and  what do i need to stay for as long as i want? also once there i would like to meet up with other Americans that may be able to help and walk me through it .

Just some friendly advice: you should probably think about slowing down a bit. Is there a reason why you are in a hurry to get married?

Hi

The first thing to do is read the many topics and posts here on the forum as all the answers are there. You wont need anyone to walk you through it once you have taken the time to read. Start off in the visa section of the forum and if you don't understand something Im sure we will will advise you if you have questions.

Yes that thought came to my mind also but just thought I should hold back a bit. But lets hope this is not another case of someone looking through rose coloured glasses.

The answer to your visa renewal question can easily be found hereabouts. The answers to many questions which you don't even know enough to ask yet are here as well. For the next week, do nothing in your spare time other than browsing this forum. Learn to use the 'search' function.

 

It's a rule of thumb that an expat and his wife should live at least an hour's journey away from the wife's family. This is to make it somewhat difficult for family members to show up unannounced asking for money or whatever.

 

Do some research, friend. Forewarned is forearmed.
