Recommended Posts

Good day

I would like to know if a foreigner is able to apply and work in the Philippines after marriage to a Philippina. Is the marriage enough to contract employment for a foreigner? Thanks in advance for your advice.

No but after marriage you can get a 13A Visa and then you can work.

If you don't have a 13A, you can still work under an Alien Employment Permit (AEP) from the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE).

Work Permit section 
In general, a foreign national seeking employment in the Philippines, whether resident or non-resident, must secure an Alien Employment Permit (AEP) from the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE). 

A local employer who wishes to employ a foreign national must apply on the foreign national’s behalf with the DOLE for the permit. The petitioning company must prove that the foreign national possesses the required skills for the position and that no Filipino is available who is competent, able and willing to do the specific job for which the foreign national is desired.
