How to get Authenticated Birth Certificate from NSO (National Statistics office)





If you are going to take the board exams or apply for an SSS number, you would surely need to get a copy of your authenticated birth certificate from NSO. Nowadays, there are several services that offer to deliver your NSO authenticated birth certificate right at your doorstep. The fee for such services ranges from P315.00 to P350.00. but for those of you who wish to save some money, you can definitely walk in to your local NSO. If you prefer to do it the old-fashioned way, here are tips and a step by step process on how to get your authenticated birth certificates (walk in) from the NSO (National Statistics Office).

1. First, try to locate the nearest NSO Serbilis center to you. Normally, these are near the city hall or municipal hall in your area.

2. Now get some some sleep and be at the NSO Serbilis center very early. Be sure to arrive at the NSO Serbilis center early or you'll be stuck in a very very long line.

Here are the requirements if you are requesting an NSO authenticated birth certificate for another person:

-a valid ID for yourself

-a valid ID for the owner of the birth certificate

-authorization letter

Here are the requirements if you are requesting an NSO authenticated birth certificate for yourself:

-a valid ID, that's it

The following are the required information that you will need when walking in to a NSO Serbilis center to get an authenticated birth certificate:

    Your complete name (first, middle, last)
    Complete name of your father
    Complete maiden name of your mother
    Your date of birth (month, day, year)
    Your place of birth (city/municipality, province)
    Whether or not registered late. (If registered late, please state the year when it was registered.
    Complete name and address of the requesting party *if requesting NSO authenticated birth       
    certificate for another person
    Relationship to the child *if requesting NSO authenticated birth certificate for another person
    Number of copies needed
    Purpose of the certification

3. Once you arrive at the NSO, get an application form, and a queue number.

4. Fill up the application form. make sure to write legibly and in block letters. Submit your accomplished application form to the screener's desk. The screener will check the accomplished form.

5. Next step is to pay at the cashier. The cost for an authenticated birth certificate is only P140.00 if you walk in to an NSO Serbilis center.

6. Wait for your name to be called at the releasing area. This is where you have to present your requirements for the authenticated birth certificate to be released to you.

That's it! I hope that this will aid you in getting your authenticated birth certificate from the NSO. Oh, and one last thing, beware of fixers!

You can get your birth certificate via the Internet at birthcertificates.com.ph. Your actual certificate will be delivered to you as it needs to be printed in NSO's secure certificate paper.

What are the Requirements:


2. For Birth Certificate Application Only:

Valid ID is required for both the owner and requester of document.
Authorization letter and ID of the document owner together with the ID of the requester are required if the requester is not of the following: a) document owner; b) PARENT; c) spouse; d) direct descendant; e) legal guardian/ institution in-charge, if minor.
