These include births, marriages and death.
Births can occur either at home with the assistance of a midwife, or in the maternity wards of hospitals in Dumaguete. This is one area of the life experience that Filipino medical professionals have so shortage of experience. Large families are the norm. You will notice this when walking around Dumaguete or up in mountain areas where its not unusual to see a scooter with six people on it.
Marriages are either civil or church events. This visa outcome will only matter to foreigners who are marrying Pinays. (Philippine women) Specific guidelines regarding documentation and relevant licensing are referenced later on our site.
Both cremation and burial are available here. Many people purchase a burial plot well in advance of their death. If you want to be cremated, make sure you leave specific instructions regarding where your ashes are to be sent post death.
