Question about Baptismal certificate...

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, guys . I just wanna asks about Baptismal Certificate. I found out a year ago that my Baptismal Certificate has errors. My name was misspelled, it is not the same spelling written in my Birth certificate I got from NSO and from Local Civil Registry . I know that the Local Church where I was baptized was the one liable for its correction. What procedure do I have to make?Can I just bring my birth certificate to show the correct spelling of my name or do I need to show additional requirements to have it corrected?.....I`m just confused?

Second, I have authenticated birth certificate issued years ago. Can i still use the cert. as K1- Docs. soon. or do i need to get new one?

Thanks co- VJ for dropping by.. Hoping for your replies. God bless!

Hi its better to have updated NSO birth certificate and with regards to your baptismal certificate if you still have time you can have it corrected in the local church where you was baptized either way your birth certificate is more important so its a good thing that your BC bears your correct name

i had my baptismal certificate corrected last year..i went to the local church where i was baptized then i was asked to bring my bc and 2 witnesses who were not related to me..after me and the witnesses signed a form i was given a letter to be forwarded to the bishop's office(in my province)..it was a letter of correction that needs the approval of the bishop since i was baptized in a catholic church..it just took me an hour to get the approval which i then took back to my local church and i got my corrected baptismal certificate right at that moment..

Hi there,

I don't think baptismal certificate is one of the requirement. Previous answers are true, NSO authenticated birth certificate is the most important because it is the one to be submitted.

(I didn't submit or ask to submit baptismal anytime during my VISA journey...)

Goodluck to you. Keep on posting! This forum will help you a lot!! :thumbs::thumbs:

Under normal circumstances that is the case, but if the CO has even the slightest doubt about the birth certificate, Photos of the Baptismal book including all relevant pages and copies of the Baptismal certificate will be required. Late BC registration will do it every time. But if this happens, then they will be asking for more than just the Baptismal certificate.
