@ Admin: Da ich häufiger Anfragen zu diesem Thema erhalte, möglicherweise fixieren unter "Ankündigungen und wichtige Themen"
1) Where to apply, and where will the checking of the documents take place?
The Marriage Registration and Records Office
3/F, Low Block
Queensway Government Offices
Check out the requirements for your specific case per mail: "firstname.lastname@example.org",
topic e.g.: "giving notice of intended marriage of 2 persons being no Hong Kong citizens living outside Hong Kong"
- forms to be filled - page 1+2 of the attached .pdf-file
- deadline for the registration per mail: 15 days before the wedding. I recommend, to send scanned copies of all documents per e-mail in advance before sending them per FedEx or others, in order to get them checked first. 15 days before the wedding the printed documents must be in Hong Kong
- best days in my opinion to marry are wednesdays, since you will have to present your original documents 2 working days before, which can happen that way on a monday. The whole procedure should be possible within 1 week only, if you apply for the "Apostille of the Hague" at the High Court and start the registration at the Philippine Consulate also on wednesday directly after the wedding.
- Not recommended: The option to marry with "Civil Celebrant" - it might take some days until you get your certificate if you chose this way
