Applying for a certificate of marital status in the Philippines

Are you a Dutch national, living in the Philippines and do you need a certificate of marital status? The Dutch embassy in Manilla does not issue this certificate.

Do you want to get married in the Philippines? If so, you will need a certificate of legal capacity to marry.

Warning: If you are registered in the Personal Records Database (BRP) in the Netherlands, apply for this document from the municipality where you are registered. You may need to have the declaration/certificate translated and legalised before you can use it outside the Netherlands.
