Hi Ashith,

You can legally stay there for 30 days you will receive the first 2 weeks at Immigration at the airport and have to get the remaining days at a local Immigration office be aware that they charge you for this as well Ashith.

To get a job there you can look at there you select the country Philipines and create an account there.

Be aware that if you are getting married with a Filipina you not gaining any additional rights as a foreigner.

Als you have to go to immigration and please do this all yourself otherwise they rip you off for sure! ok when you going there ask for a permit to stay and for a work permit after you receive this you can start your search for work over there.
Also look in the local newspapers and write a introduction letter and print out your resume several times and visit the local IT Companies in Makati, my experience is that you have more chance than send your resume by mail since they are not so responsive with send mail.
I hope this will help you some further and if you have any other question do not hesitate to contact me Ashith.

I was living and working there for about 9 years so know my way.

my personal mail is jansen.henkjan[at] if you want to know more or needing help on anything.
Wishing you all the best and be save out there.

You get someone to convert to Muslim just to save money ??

Why does a marriage cost as much as 25,000 ?  Mine will only be about 10-15,000, but we are neither catholic or muslim.

18k for processing of married cert, authentication to DFA and 6k for translation of name that's according to imam (Muslim priest or I don't know what is imam means coz I'm catholic). Then 1k for the mosque.

Hello everyone,

All the best,

Imam is like priest in Mosque. And it is very weird tradition in Muslim that if you are Non muslim and want to marry a muslim guy or girl, you have to convert in Muslim and change your name which I dont like.
