Did you know? The United States of America (USA) ranked the Top 1 country of destination among Filipino spouses, fiancé(e)s, and other partners of foreign nationals from 2009 to 2019, totaling 109,864 individuals. More than one-fifth of them originated from the National Capital Region (NCR) at 22.85% or 25,096–almost 39.11% of whom were from the Second District, 34.07% from the Fourth District, and 13.95% and 12.87%, respectively, from the Third and Fourth Districts.
Cebu ranked as the Top 2 province of origin after Metro Manila at 8.97% or 9,854, followed by Pampanga at 6.18% or 6,785, and Cavite at 5.49% or 6,034. Other major provinces of origin included Pangasinan, Davao Del Sur, Rizal, Bulacan, Laguna, and Zambales, each with an average share of 3.11% or 3,422.
These ten Philippine provinces altogether accounted for around 62.17% of all Filipino spouses, fiancé(e)s, and other partners of foreign nationals in 2009-2019, suggesting that while the NCR was the top province of origin of Filipino spouses and partners in this period, a more significant number was spread sparsely over the rest of the country.
