Ladislav, how can AFA offer Philippines women tours?

Ladislav,
Didn't you say that marriage agencies were illegal in the Philippines? If so, then how can A Foreign Affair be offering Philippine bride tours, like this one:

Any idea? Maybe I could work as a coordinator for them? lol

Quod lecit iovi, non lecit bovi.- What is allowed to Jupiter, is not allowed to an ox.

These are illegal. How they do it? Beyond me. Probably found some loophole in the law or greased the right palm.

Don't try it at home.

Ladislav, I think you misunderstood me. I didn't say I wanted to start a marriage agency or romance tour. I said, since they can run tours here in the Philippines legally, then maybe I should JOIN them or get a position on THEIR team somehow? It'd be profitable and I'd be doing something I love in a field that I live and breathe pretty much. Wouldn't that be perfect?

Or I can just join their affiliate program and promote them on my site for a commission, of course.

Well, I still would not get involved because it mentions " ASSOCIATION"

Human Protection Laws:
Republic Act No 6955 - MAIL ORDER BRIDES
AN ACT TO DECLARE UNLAWFUL THE PRACTICE OF MATCHING FILIPINO WOMEN FOR MARRIAGE TO FOREIGN NATIONALS ON A MAIL ORDER BASIS AND OTHER SIMILAR PRACTICES INCLUDING THE ADVERTISEMENT, PUBLICATION, PRINTING OR DISTRIBUTION OF BROCHURES, FLIERS AND OTHER PROPAGANDA MATERIALS IN FURTHERANCE THEREOF AND PROVIDING PENALTY THEREFORE

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the Philippine in Congress assembled:

SECTION 1 It is the policy of the state to ensure and guarantee the enjoyment of the people of a decent standard of living. Towards this end the State shall take measures to protect Filipino women from being exploited in utter disregard of human dignity in their pursuit of economic upliftment.

SEC 2. Pursuant thereto it hereby declared unlawful:

(a) For a person natural or juridical, association, club or any other entity to commit directly or indirectly any of the following acts:

(b) For the manager or officer in charge or advertising manager or any newspaper, magazine, television or radio station, or other media, or of an advertising agency, printing company or other similar entities to knowingly allow, or consent to the acts prohibited in the preceding paragraph.

SEC 3 In case of violation of this Act by an association, club, partnership, corporation or any other entity, the incumbent officers thereof or have knowingly participated in the violation of this Act shall be held liable.

SEC 5 Nothing in this act shall be interpreted as a restriction on the freedom of speech and of association for purposes not contrary to law as guaranteed by the Constitution.

SEC 6 All laws decree the orders instructions, rules and regulations, or parts thereof inconsistent with this Act are thereby repealed or modified accordingly.
