Kung ang Pinoy ay ikakasal sa isang Japanese national sa Japan, you need to apply for LCCM at Philippine Consulate. Same with this, kung ang Japanese national naman ay ikakasal sa isang Pinoy sa Pinas, you need to apply for LCCM also. Ang LCCM ay kinakailangan kung ang ikakasal ay hindi pareho ng nationality. Kung pareho kayong Pinoy, then Marriage License lang ang kailangan.


One big reason kung bakit hindi nabibigyan ng visa ang isang Pinoy kahit na kasal na sa isang Japanese at meron COE na hawak ay sa kadahilanan na wala silang initial information in Japanese Embassy about their marriage bago pa sila ikasal, at ito ang kahalagahan ng LCCM you will apply.

Ang purpose ng LCCM ay para matiyak ng Japanese Embassy na ang both party na ikakasal, Pinoy at Japanese are both legal and eligible na ikasal, and by applying for this document, hindi nyo lamang mapapatunayan sa Japanese Embassy na you are both eligible to be married, but also this will act as your initial information or registration about your marriage. Dahil dito, magiging madali para sa inyo ang pag-apply ng Japanese Spouse Visa dahil meron ng record ang Japanese Embassy na nagpapatunay na ang inyong kasal ay tunay, hindi peke at walang sabit.

This LCCM is applied in the Japanese Embassy office in Manila or in consular office in Davao or Cebu. The needed documents for this application ay ang mga sumusunod. Make sure na maihanda ito ng inyong Japanese partner bago sya pumunta ng Pinas para mai-apply ninyo.
