Service of process in the Philippines may be effected via private process server or, technically, via letter rogatory. However, the US State Department has indicated that letters rogatory are rare in the Philippines and may not be executed.
The Philippines is an archipelago made up of over 7,000 islands located in 79 provinces whose shared area is a bit bigger than Arizona.
