Easy Way to Request for Birth Certificate

Our passport will expire in April and July but we all know that the Philippines requires that your passport is valid for at least six months beyond the date you leave. We don’t have travel plans yet but it is better to be ready.

I was reserving an appointment last Thursday for our passport renewal and I’ve read the minor requirements, I was shocked because the requirements are still the same, it is like applying for a new passport. I need original NSO birth certificate of my son (now PSA), good thing I still have one copy of his birth certificate but I decided to order for future use.

The following day I checked NSOHelpline.com site, the last time I used their service was 2006 so I can’t remember any steps. But ordering is still easy so sharing to you the easy process of requesting your birth certificate. 

1. Click order now 

2. Choose the documents you need, in my case I need a birth certificate

3. Answer the question, I chose school requirements. 

4. Answer the question, I clicked Yes 

5. Answer the question, I clicked Yes 

6. Fill out the details. 

7. Answer the question, I clicked None 

8. Fill out the details.

9. Check if all the details are correct. 

10. You will see your order summary and get all the details that you need for payment. I also received text and email message regarding my order. I made over the counter payment at Metrobank last 2006 but this time I used my gift voucher. But if I don’t have a gift voucher, I prefer paying using a credit card. 

It took me few minutes to order a birth certificate online. Yesterday, I received my son’s birth certificate, after 2 business days. That is so convenient, I saved time and effort. The cost of the birth certificate is P350 including the delivery fee but it is still worth it because I will spend the same amount if I will go to SM.
