If you've already attended the required counseling session, go to the CFO office and present the certificate along with your passport/visa to get the sticker placed in your passport. There is no registration required to merely pick up the sticker.

It's normal for those waiting to interview to attend the counseling session.

Having or not the medical exam was never an issue with regards to attending the CFO counseling, it just did not matter.

Let me clarify my eariler statement, when you got to the CFO to pick up your sticker, you present your certificate and a passport with a visa, that is in fact registering with CFO before departing the country.

You may avail of the Guidance and Counseling Session even while you are still processing or waiting for your visa. If such is the case, you will only be issued the GC Certificate. Once your visa is released, you will return to CFO to continue with your registration. The CFO sticker will then be affixed on your passport.

Quick question, no need to pay additional fee right on top of that P400 fee for the certificate they paid on the 1st day?

There is a registration fee aside from the counseling fee. I'm baffled why the registration fee is not reflected anymore on the CFO website. I swear it was there before 4 yrs ago .blink.gif The fee back then was PhP 250.00. They might have jacked up the fee. Maybe. unsure.gif

6. Payment of the authorized registration fee.

Yeah it was there just few weeks ago although I'm not complaining if we don't have to pay the additional P250 :thumbs: I knew it was there 'coz I made an outline already for my fiance as to the fee and docs to bring.

The fees for everything keep going up. Medical six years ago was 125, two years ago 150, and now almost 225. Just wish my salary went up like that. :wacko:

Hi, with regards on for your concerned. You really need to have that sticker from CFO.. Aside of the Certificate. Before you go US after you have the Visa and the Passport, you must to have that seminar and have that stamp.

So it is really needed.

I think we already established that CFO sticker is required, we just want to know if the fee is P400 only or an additional P250 as compared to what it says on the site few weeks ago. It nowhere say that P250 there now and just P400.
