Possible to still get a NSO birth certificate?

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My fiancee and her 2 yo daugther just arrived on K1-K2 a few days ago. Problem now is even I told her to get serveral copies of the NSO authenticated birth certificate for both her and her daugther she arrived without those needed documents in hand. Guess she figured that the packet recieved form 2go and submitted to the custom upon entry would be given back with the required documents inside.

So here the issue now cuz we can't get married without her birth cerificate and she wont be able to get a SS # also, is it possible to have her father get the authenticated copies from NSO and have them sent to me in the USA?

The second issue is the child was born out of wedd lock so doesn't carry the mothers last name only the fathers but the mothers name is spelled in the middle part.

Im praying all turns out well for us and we can get the required documents in time.

Thanks VJ.

Have you went to this site already?

https://www.ecensus.com.ph/Secure/frmIndex.asp

I think you can apply online or something. but if you cant, I think you just need an authorization letter from you fiance allowing her relative or friend to get NSO certificates for her. A photocopy or her valid id may be needed to check for the signature in the authorization letter. Im not 100% sure here though. Better ask a relative to call the NSO to be sure. :)

(1) fiancee's birth certificate

Yes, her father can get her NSO birth certificate for her. Birth certificates can be requested/received by the owner of the document, spouse, direct descendants/ascendants (children/parents), and guardian (https://www.ecensus....re/frmIndex.asp).

It's faster if her father can go to an NSO center (Census Serbilis Centers - http://www.census.go...c_location.html). If her NSO birth certificate had previously been requested (not always a requirement/condition), her father can get the birth certificate on the same day that he requested it. Her father can then mail it to you to the USA by courier and you'll get it in 2-4 business days. When I requested a copy last year, when I was in the Philippines, it took less than an hour from lining up to geting the request form, filling up, verifying, paying, to release of document. There are usually a lot of people requesting documents so the total time spent will vary, depending also on what time of day her father goes to the center. I find most Pinoys generally like lining up long before a government office opens so expect very long lines close to noon and a little past that. I tend to go to Phil govt offices close to closing time (except when the govt office has a specified quota cut off).

Your fiancee can also request her birth certificate online (ecensus - previous post to mine) but it's going to take an awfully long time for the birth certificate to get to you. When I requested birth certificates before (PH to Canada and USA), it took about a month for me to receive the document. The NSO does not use couriers for mailing outside the PH, AFAIK.

(2) child was born out of wedd lock so doesn't carry the mothers last name only the fathers but the mothers name is spelled in the middle part.

I don't think it matters. If the child's birth certificate shows your fiancee as the mother, that's enough proof that she is the mother.

Hi! I think you can request for her birth certificate online and have it delivered to your address in the US. I'm not sure how long it will take, though. Go to e-census.com.ph. To your second question, I agree that as long as the birth certificate indicates her as the mother, you don't need to worry.

Apply for it online, have it delivered to her parent's house and make sure they have an ID, and scan an authorization for them which they can also print out and show, together with her scanned ID. Then have her parents FedEX it to the US.. You'll have everything in 2weeks
