The Embassy may solemnize the marriage of two Philippine citizens who are both eligible for marriage under Philippine law.

Both the bride and the groom must personally appear at the Philippine Embassy to accomplish and sign the Application for Marriage License and submit the documentary requirements.

The ceremony of marriage solemnization will be set on a date after the mandatory ten-day publication of the marriage (i.e. marriage bann), following the submission of the complete documentary requirements at the Embassy.
