Dear Sir i just want to your suggestion because you know everything and God already gives u lot of respect and value. Thank you so much regards Ali

Hello Ali,

the German consulate does not perform marriages.

You will have to get married according to the procedure of the country that you want to get married at.
If everything is done according to Philippine or Thai laws, the German consulate will accept it.

Good luck to both of you!
