You'll probably get more advice and better informed responses if you post in the Philippines forum. Go to general topics, regional discussions, and find the Philippines forum.

Good luck.

I think the visa you're referring to is Balikbayan visa. Yes, it's true that this visa is extended to the Filipino citizen's spouse as well as his/her minor children. A balikbayan can stay up to a year in the Philippines. However, the key requirement is the Filipino is a balikbayan.

Philippine law states that a balikbayan "shall mean a Filipino citizen who has been continuously out of the Philippines for a period of at least one (1) year, a Filipino overseas worker, or former Filipino citizen and his or her family, as this term is defined hereunder, who had been naturalized in a foreign country and comes or returns to the Philippines."

So, if your future Filipino spouse doesn't meet any of these requirements, you are ineligible for Balikbayan privilege. I hope this helps some.
