All Filipinos going abroad as fiancées, spouses or family members of foreign nationals are required to attend the Commission on Filipinos Overseas (CFO) guidance and counseling session in order to secure the Guidance and Counseling Certificate (GCC) and the CFO sticker.  You can't leave the airport without it. This is a requirement of the Philippine government, not the United States government.

You will also need to present this certificate together with your visa, at the Immigration office at the international airport on your day of departure.

To attend the Guidance and Counseling program of the CFO, you can go to the CFO office in Manila or Cebu. The counseling session runs for a minimum of four hours and is meant to provide you with adequate information regarding inter-marriage and migration, the cultural and social realities of living abroad as well as available support networks for women in distress.

If you will attend your CFO seminar in Manila you must make an appointment online. Walk-ins are not accepted. Schedule your appointment here.

After you comply with all the requirements and finish the counseling session, you will be given the Guidance and Counseling Certificate which you will have to bring along with other pertinent documents, to the CFO, for registration.

Once you have your USA visa, you will need to register with the CFO and received your CFO Sticker which will be affixed on your Philippine passport.  So while you can attend the seminar before you get the visa, you will have to return after you have the visa in your passport to get the CFO sticker.

You can use the CFO office in Metro Manila or Metro Cebu, whichever is most convenient for you.  There are not other places to get this done.

Please check the schedule of the counseling session before proceeding to CFO because it is country-specific and the slots are limited only to 15 per session. It is on a first-come-first-serve basis.  Click the link below to go to the CFO site and see the schedule.

The fee for the counseling is PhP 400.00.

You will be required to bring numerous documents to the CFO seminar including the following list.  These requirements can change at any time so you should also check the requirements listed on the
official CFO site.

Dear Albert,

Elisa and I just happily married last February 17, 2014. Getting fiance visa is so hard. But good thing we got the service of Rapid Visa. So easy and accessible to my fiancee because they have office in Manila. That's great advantage. Rapid Visa team was always there assisting us in all documents needed. My wife went to Rapid Visa's office even without appointment. Our payment was worth because you have no worries at all. All you have to do is provide them necessary information and everything will be handled by them. Now, we will get Rapid Visa service again for AOS.

Thank you guys and more power.

Sincerely yours,

New Jersey, USA / Philippines

Thanks to RAPIDVISA,  Recil and I ( John), had such a good planned support from Dan and Juliet.  Wow the job they did for us to get together it was a long wait and they made it short for the support we had from them. It was a good choice for me and my fiance (Recil) to find a good company who can help us because I visited her just once and it was just for 3 weeks. Rapidvisa staff are not only a working partner but they are also a good friend. I started  Fiance Visa just as I came back to the USA in March of 2012. Finally she got her place to stay in Manila thru Dan and Juliet, they search a good place and accomodation for her and her son to stay safe. In November 2012 they stayed in manila for almost  month. That was her and her son Medical Examination and her final interview with the US Embassy. Me and my Fiance was nervous maybe we cant make it, but Dan was always on the phone 24/7 when we needed  HELP!

November 29th 2012 my Fiance and her son arrived at Bradley Airport at 10:45pm. I was at the bottom of the escalator waiting with two dozen rosses and a remote control car for my litlle guy. And on December 3rd  2012 we got married. Now I have a wife and son, I could not be any happier.  RapidVisa is doing our change of status now. So you see, RapidVisa is not just for Fiance but its fr a new start for LIFE! Dan and Juliet are Awesome as what our son say.

More power RapidVisa and the rest of your staff. Once again thank you so much and god bless us all!!! We do recommend RapidVisa to all of our friends here in the USA and the Philippines.....

John and Recil

Dear Rapid Visa,

Josephine and I would like to thank you for your help in obtaining her K1 Fiancé Visa. The process through Rapid Visa made it so easy to understand. All of our phone calls in the Philippines, and the U.S. were answered in detail with great support. We visited Jenn numerous times in the Manila office, she is wonderful, and very much an expert in the Visa process, we also used the online Tech. support, and there was always a Rapid Visa Team member there to help us.

We are now married, and have submitted the Adjustment of Status through Rapid Visa, they have overviewed the Documents, and have forwarded them on to the USCIS. After getting married, this took all of 5 days to fill out, send to Rapid Visa, and on to USCIS.

We have already recommended Rapid Visa to two of our friends, and they have contacted Rapid Visa, to get things going.

Thanks Again and May God Bless you always!

Brian and Josephine
