Aside from practically dominating in all regions and voting classes he also posted landslide victory among overseas Filipino  voters.

In the Asia Pacific cluster, which included China, Japan, Australia, Thailand, Malaysia, Korea, Singapore, and Taiwan,  Marcos received 159,186 votes against his nearest rival, Leni Robredo, who only got 35,862 votes.

Singapore gave Marcos the most considerable number of votes in the cluster as he raked in 36,806 votes against Robredo's 12,283. 

This was followed by Japan, where Marcos got 25,410,  and Taiwan, where he obtained 23,906 votes.

Marcos' dominance in the overseas polls continues in the Middle East and Africa cluster, composed of Lebanon, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman, United Arab Emirates, and Bahrain. 

The presumptive President was able to get 111,025 votes, while Robredo only got 19,856.

In Saudi Arabia, where there is a 98% voter turnout, Marcos obtained 46,748 votes compared to Robredo's 8,582.

Marcos was also able to maintain his foothold in the Americas and Europe clusters, where he got 28,623, and 31,397, respectively.

According to the partial and unofficial results, as of May 13, 2022,  Marcos is still leading the presidential race with 31,104,175 votes against his closest rival's 14,822,051 votes.
