Philippine Consulate Okinawa Closed Forever.

Philippine Consulate Okinawa Closed Forever.

The Philippine Consulate in Okinawa has recently closed for good. They will not reopen at a later date – the reason that the Consulate has closed is because the contract for the Consulate has expired. I am not exactly sure what that means either.

For Philippine and US passport holders wanting to get married in Okinawa now must take a different course of action.

Both parties (US and Philippine Passport Holding Couples) must go to the Philippine Embassy in Tokyo together to apply for the LCCM document.

The turnaround time is 5 working days, at that point they will mail it to you via Letter Pack Express or you can come back physically to the Tokyo Embassy and pick it up.

For those customers that do not have a Japanese mailing address you can use our offices mailing address to send the letter pack express.

After you receive the LCCM you are ready to go get married at the city office and we can complete the final documents that you need to submit to the city office.
