For me, I usually pay my NSO Birth Certificate and other Certificates online thru Unionbank Online Banking. If you have a Unionbank Bank Account or BDO Bank Account, you can pay NSO online. Other banks like BPI and Metrobank have online banking also. So you can pay online through these online banking services of these banks.

Hi! That does not work 100 % fine. I recommend to get the document directly through the office by talking to the employee working there face to face and to calculate a lot of time and money. The authorities over here are occupied most by employees who are not well educated so you get always wrong informations because these employees do not like to admit that they are out of knowledge or not knowing the correct answer. It makes lot of sense first to get that knowledge by yourself and to print out the laws and instructions so you can force the employees to proceed following the law. I got the German passport for my son who was born here in the Philippines (Cebu) and I needed the birth certificate of the hospital which was confirmed by the notaree. I accepted that I am the son of my son and my wife confirmed my acceptance. We did that in the German embassy. The all other paperwork like passport and birth certificate from my wife I showed to the German office directly in Germany. They accepted there the original documents without any problems or discussions as all what I told them I was able to prove. So I got the German passport already. The Philippine authorities are still working on registrating the birth certificate at NSO... first they sent me to Tacloban. There they sent me back to Cebu... and they are still not done yet as they are bad educated and they do not follow the own laws. And then of course they tell me that they have some friends sitting somewhere who needs support to proceed this and that. So finally my son who was born in July 2013 still does not have a philippine passport. And so he cannot travel normally to other countries. Is that the way of freedom the authorities are providing to the citizens? I am happy that my son has his German passport. And it is a shame that the Philippine authorities did not even proceed the registration of an easy birth certificate. Better not to be dependant from Philippine authorities.

Hello. Can I also ask for certified true copies together with the original NSO birth certificate? I also need them for immigration. Please email me on how to do that. Thank you.

Hello po,
I just wanna ask what to do if my husband birthdate in NSO Birth Certificate is different from what he is using. He inquired in Local registrar's office and they found out he has 2 records of different birthdates. They advised him to submit the registration to National NSO to correct the said date. But it will take 3-4 months according to them. Can this not be settled through affidavit or is there any faster way to correct it? I found it urgent as they need to apply passport as a requirement for my Permanent Resident Application here in Canada. Thank you so much.
Best Regards,
