  1. Hello sir. This is a great video! Very well explained. As a matter of fact we continue to assist couples from all around the world from many countries. The process is not an easy process by no means. For those interested Webwedmobile does not get involved with immigration process. Immigration wise they make it very clear couples are to have proof of relationship. We get messages daily if couples havent met can they marry. Yes. They can marry but……immigration has made it clear this does not suffice for proof of relationship and must have met in person at least once within the last year inside country or will be reboarded on aircraft. DFA currently issues the 9a visa which is another service separate of immigration. You may indeed get a visa and get married but immigration will always have the final say. This isnt an easy go to see my sweetie for a week and back. This is for those whom are stranded, had weddings canceled and have the financial means of support during process. We thank you for giving us credit as not many have recognized us but rather disclaim us or impersonate us!! Have a great day!

  2. There’s another American vlogger in the process of doing the same thing and he never even met his Filipina in person. Do a YouTube search on ”
    Adventures of Larry and Wenna”. They already got married online and the guy is waiting on the marriage visa from the Philippines embassy.

  3. Mr Ricardo que tal su español ? Yo vivo en Laredo in the north of Spain. Next year after de Covid finish. I will visit Dumaguete because my wife has a house there..

  4. Here is a bombshell for you – I was looking at a blog on the subject, and someone noted that the marriage license they received from Webwed was from Utah County, Utah. I looked them up! It happens that they have a very open way to marry people who may not be in Utah or even in the US. Apparently, they can marry you for $80 or less! BOOM! I just heard your mind being blown! Correct me if I am wrong, but I suggest if you don’t want to wait for tourist visas to enter PH, and are willing to marry to see your sweetheart, consider this alternative: (comments welcome!) http://www.utahcounty.gov/Dept/ClerkAud/Marriage.html

  5. It should also be noted that the couple mentioned met in person before marrying online. I know there are some that are seeking this and have never met in person which may bring issues…

  6. FYI: spoke with a man from Webwed a few days ago. With all of the “fees” this service would cost closer to $1,500. I think this virtual marriage (could) allow entry to PH for foreign spouse (even if they have never met, as long as she is 18+). I’d suggest another marriage in PH to use for your CR-1 visa application back to the US. Please comment on the viability of such a plan? Keep up the great work! 1st-time commenter from Cape Cod, MA in love with a Filipina!

  7. In the Philippines it’s not illegal because the family code stakes that you must be in the same location does not consider the Internet the same location

  8. This is a great video that breaks it down for many to understand. you do a great job walking through the details. Thank you for this informative video. I will be sharing it for sure. Have a great day!

  9. The cost of the WebWed service is more like $1500. once you add up the certifications. If you are not comfortable with this then don’t do it. Others have and have been successful. That is the reality of it. If you think that $1500 is to much to marry your Filipina then you shouldn’t be getting married of even coming to the Phils. in the first place. Reekay did you know that it is snowing behind you?……..LOL

  10. we are both in bohol right now i need the legally capacitated document from the USA Consulate in cebu due to the enter state travel restrictions and quarantine requirements after travelling to the Philippines from Florida the last few kilometers seems to be the hardest part of the journey

  11. Sorry, for an unrelated question, but I just read in a Bloomberg article yesterday that the Philippines will start allowing foreigners into the country starting November 1st. Anybody else know anything?

  12. Here’s the Real Deal…. I have completed every step of online marriage up to the point of now waiting for the Consulate of the Philippines to approve my spousal visa and return my documents including my American passport. I’m scheduled to fly from SFO to Manila on October 31st. If I do not receive the visa in the next few days I will be forced to reschedule my flight. Bottom line…there is much more to this than meets the eye. No it is not a slam dunk. It is a very involved process. I have spoken to others who made the journey and are now in the Philippines. I expect to join that lucky group very soon. HAHAHA News Flash. While writing this comment I received a phone call from the consulate. Two steps forward and 1 step back. Now they will return my rom and have me send it to another consulate for processing. The worker said he will issue my visa after the rom is processed in the other consulate. So very many hoops to jump through. Good luck to anyone who is brave or crazy enough to do this. Don’t ask.

  13. The site web wed has other sites has other stories available to be further informed of people who married online include stories about the man never meeting the woman before marriage. I thought about doing this but the amount of money that has been put in place is too much for me.i thinking of writing to the Philippines embassy to ask them showing proof of receipts of money I have been sending to my Filipina and her daughter ,would they consider me for a visa.they have considered a man who is American and granted him a visa even though his is not married to the Filipina .

  14. I am retired and have lots of free time so I took a deep dive into this new hot topic.
    The Philippines accepts all legal marriages from the United States.
    WedWeb weddings are legal marriages in the United States.
    I’m not paying the $899 for their “Internal Package” unless absolutely, positively have no other option.
    This is what I would do if I were to go this route.
    Using Utah as an example, you can file for a marriage cert. from anywhere, online.
    Both parties have to email them documents proving their identity.
    Pay the Utah costs and you wind up with a marriage cert.
    You don’t need WedWeb for that process.

    I would consider paying WedWeb for them to officiate the wedding: $399.
    I will not pay $425 to WedWeb for a Apostille service when I can pay the State of Utah around $20.00 per Apostille document.

    Provide the Philippine Embassy in your region with proof of your marriage to a Philippine national.
    Apply for the necessary visa for permission to travel to the Philippines as a spouse of a Philippine national.

    *As a side note:
    From the Utah County Clerk/Auditor webpage.
    For International Applicants Without A U.S. Based Home Address
    “The online application is not currently designed to accept international addresses. This will be corrected in a later version of the system.
    If either applicant does not have a US based home address when completing the application, please use the Utah County Clerk’s office address instead to complete the application online. That address is “111 S University Ave, Provo, UT 84601”.”

  15. Dont forget theres Common Law Marriage. Research It. But do both countries recognize the King of Englands Common Law Marriage? Both people uses the last males name and put out publish publicly they are husband and wife? Does one or both use financial instruments in support of both persons? Research common Law Marriage for your Nation State and Country.

  16. Why would any Idiot get the State license and marry a Woman in the United States, more specially online without a Bride. (LOL) I mean HEY.. Do what you want with your life but at least give yourself a remote chance.. MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMUUUUUUAHAHAHAHHAHA.. Get a Passport Friends! You don’t even need a visa to enter the Phils. To Filipina Ladies: If you marry a man in the USA, you automatically, instantly, and immediately own fifty percent (50%) of his assets and money without a prenuptual agreement. If he married you and brought you here to the US, he had to submit an “affidavit of support” for you to the department of homeland security. If he gets you pregnant and you have his child(s), you are entitled to more however, see an Attorney. Best is to hire two (2) Attorneys (ehhe). Last but not least :-).. You can challenge any prenup, and if he says bad words to you, keep on going for mediation, then he will become your best friend plus the nicest guy you ever met in your whole life and will offer you a huge pile of money!

  17. My first time writing on here but this is something that I have to say. If you are a Resident of Montana you can get a proxy marriage done and it can be with same sex too..they will file the paperwork work third party and send you all paperwork that you need

  18. $900 for an online wedding just so MAYBE you could possibly enter the Philippines? I am not saying this is a scam; but it is definitely suspect… I feel they are trying to profit off the pandemic and I would encourage any guy considering using this service to just wait til next year when the PI opens back up,..

  19. My gf wanted to do an online wedding. I told her even thoough we had been talking for 1 year and I had visited her for 3 weeks in December 2019 I was not comfortable getting married. We still do not know each other that well. Also as with any thing that skirts a law in any country, I believe the Philipine governemnt will close this loop hole. And maybe deport some people. There is one man that married hid Filipino gf and they had never met. I can’t remember his name. But once the governemt realizes what is happening I think there could be hell to pay. So I am not a fan of this.

  20. That website looks very shady and unprofessional. Also I see the price for an international marriage is $900. Which is probably the minimum if you need additional documentation. And I am glad you mentioned that this online marriage doesn’t guarantee a filipina would be able to emigrate to the USA. Another commenter mentioned their customer service was rude which was probably the actual officiant. And to me they make the prices so high for international marriage because they are trying to take advantage of this COVID situation which to me is very low class. Same commenter said a normal apostille doctument costs $26 but Web Wed charges $426 for it. I have also watched 2 of the online ceremonies from this company involving American-Filipina and that female officiant seems very offputting, distant and fake. I wouldn’t want to look back in 30 years and see that cringe woman doing our vows. I would wait for the borders to open personally…

  21. I am surprised the Philippine government would allow it. I have seen Americans on live streams say they are going to find a Filipina online and tell her they love her & want to marry her to get into the Philippines then dump her and date whoever they want. It sounds a whole lot like fraud to me. Maybe they can.

  23. My experience thus far with WebWed is their customer service is not friendly. They did not answer my specific question and they would not provide me with the US State that was issuing the license and kept referring to it as “the government”. Additionally, they will NOT guarantee that the license will be accepted in the foreign country’s embassy or consulate. If folks ARE going to do this, I highly recommend having them (or someone you trust) getting the document Apostilled. Note, getting a document Apostilled at your local government office (Secretary of State) in any major US city costs approx. $26, WebWed Charges $425. Keep in mind neither Thailand nor the Philippines are members of the Apostille Convention SO your document might need further “Notarizing”. None of this is impossible and WebWed could indeed be a good solution for some folks – I’d just highly recommend people perform due diligence… i.e. ASK the Immigration offices as well as an attorney in the foreign country you are looking to use this certificate for (e.g. Marriage Visa to then enter TH, PH, etc…)

  24. All very interesting Reekay. As you say it may work going to the Philippines but I know here in Australia it wouldn’t be accepted. 🙂👍

  25. An interesting topic Reekay, that will be useful for anyone contemplating taking this step. Informative and well presented as always. Best wishes to you and Vi, have a great weekend.

  26. Great Tips. Clears up some mysteries for some guys. My uncle flew to the dominican republic from US and flew his russian fiance there to get married years ago, because of something about some super long waiting list in Russia, they actually got married much faster. Made me think if an online marriage was possible to a filipina since they can’t fly anywhere. Very interesting info and service.
