  2. Hi again leslie,

    Thank you for your replies at very helpful po sken. I just have one more thing to ask heheh! 🙂 so ito mam papakasal na ako next month since un nga hnd muna ako magrenew ng passport as married name kse valid pa naman sia, but… my pass renewal do i need to renew na ba rin ito and tell MOM or miski di rin? Kse baka di magtally ang spass name at passport mahirap pa namn pag uuwe ng pinas? What would you suggest?ano po ba ung thing na ginawa nio po with regards to your pass and passport? Thanks ulit ms leslie!


    1. Hello again, Hazel!

      With regards sa S Pass, medyo hindi ako familiar sa rules ng MOM eh (sorry for that). Ummm, after ng wedding namin sa ROM, tsaka palang ako nagkaron ng Dependant Pass. ‘Yun name ko sa DP is same ng name ko sa passport. In your case, eto ‘yun nakalagay sa site ng MOM:

      “..The employer of the S Pass holder needs to update MOM on the marital status of their employee. The employer must inform MOM in writing (on company letterhead paper) and enclose a copy of the marriage certificate”

      Just in case na mapalitan na ng married name ‘yun S Pass mo, I think it’s better na mag renew ka na din ng passport para hindi ka na matanong sa Immigration or if you decided na ‘wag muna mag renew, make sure lang na lagi ka may copy ng marriage certificate niyo. 🙂


  3. Hi leslie, can i ask you po about sa requirements? We are applying visa rin for our canadian dream
    1. papakasal po kami next month here in sg kse we are both working here po, neede ko ba mag renew ng passport as married name or intay ko na magexpire muna i still have until may 2019.
    2. Yung marriage cert ba from ROM okay na ba na proof yun or need pa namin ipa register sa phil embassy then kailangan nso or psa copy na sia bago ipasa sa application ng visa? Enough na ba ung ROM marraige cert lang no need na yan steps na na mention ko?

    Hope to hear from u soon! God Bless! 🙂


    1. Hello Ms. Hazel! (soon-to-be Mrs, hehe)

      1) Your current passport is fine. When we submitted our full application last year, hindi pa married name yun gamit ko and I still have 2 years pa din bago ma expire ‘yun passport ko, like you. So, kung makakapag start na kayo magprocess ng application niyo after ng wedding, I guess okay lang na ‘wag mo na muna i-renew.

      2) With regards sa Marriage License/Certificate, ‘yun ibibigay sa inyo ng ROM, pwede na ‘yun as Proof na kasal kayo. ‘Yun amin, hindi ko na pina register sa Phil. Embassy.

      Requirements to submit a complete electronic application:

      Feel free to ask lang if you have questions pa. 🙂 God bless you too.


      1. Ms Leslie salamat sa reply nio po grabe you brighten my day!!! Grabe kse ung mga iniisip ko dahil jan feeling ko confused na confused ako heheh.. so after po ng marriage okay na ung cert from rom na drecho ipasa? Optional lang rin kung i pa consul ko pa or i pa record filling? Ano po ung steps na gnawa nio po after ksal nio po sa pag aaply ng visa.


      2. Awwww. You’re welcome, Hazel. I’m still working sa mga steps na ginawa namin and I will let you know as soon as natapos ko na (probably tomorrow) 🙂


      3. Ms Leslie nabasa ko rin ung sa post mo na sana mah study permit ka, alam mo same po tau. Mababa crs pts namen so ako po mag study un po ngaun option namen.. as of now nag aayos nga po muna kmi bago kami mag register sa mha school though meron na ako napili na papasukan.. nainspire ako sa story nio po kse ung partner ko umuwe rin sa pinas nonh ngkaroon ng alantic session kso mejo malabo pa.. isa lang yata ung tinawagan ng employer… tuloy lang rin namen ang pagchek nia session schedule sa mga susunod heheh 🙂


      4. Tama yan, tuloy tuloy lang sa pagcheck ng mga susunod pa na Info Sessions. By the way, University of Manitoba pala ‘yun school na pinag-pasahan ko ng mga requirements before. Pwede ka din mag inquire if you want, based on my experience, mabilis sila mag reply thru email. 🙂


  4. Hi, I found your blog while searching for hawker centre posts. I live in Singapore, but am from Canada and just want to congratulate you on your move and hope you enjoy my home country 🙂


  5. Hi! Provincial Nominee din ako. Ask ko lang ano visa inissue sayo? My job offer ka din po ba dun? San po kayo ngPdos and kumuha po ba kayo ng OEC? Thank! Kaye


    1. Hi Ms. Kaye! Immigrant visa na ‘yun binigay. Wala kami parehong job offer ng husband ko eh, pero naghahanap na kami ng work ngayon dito sa New Brunswick. 🙂

      We attended the PDOS at CFO-Manila and hindi na need kumuha ng OEC. 🙂
