Philippine Birth Certificate K1 Montreal

Hi, guys! Any Filipinos born in the Philippines here that has had their interview recently? Will the NSO birth certificate suffice? It doesn't have a RAISED seal or anything (It has an NSO FLAT SEAL), but it's what we use for everything else when anybody asks for certified true copy or original birth certificate from the Philippines. But, I wanted to cover all bases and make sure there isn't a version out there that I don't know about.

As long as it complies with the Reciprocity and Civil Documents Schedule for Philippines, you're good.

Doesn’t matter where you live. You follow the same requirements for your birth certificate as any other Philippine-born applicant, wherever they live.

So NSO is not valid anymore? Good thing I have two PSAs. I also have two NSOs but I guess that’s no longer usable. 

NSO not accepted anymore

It is doubtful the old NSO birth certificate will be accepted .. hard to say really being this is the U.S. embassy in Canada, but better to be current in this situation.

 

You can order a new PSA birth certificate online, but to get it in a timely manner you may want to use FEDEX for delivery (may require you creating an acct with FEDEX, which only takes a few minutes)

You will also need the NBI which can also be ordered online

Hi! I used the NSO for CEAC and they accepted it. Does it mean it wont be accepted during the interview and I still have to bring PSA birth certificate? Thank you so much!

Hi! Were you able to order from here or you authorized someone in the Philippines? Thank you

Yeah I ordered it thru PSA website and had it shipped priority via fedex. Sometimes they ship fast via regular philpost. Sometimes they dont. Since my interview date is in about a month i opted to go priority. I have 2 PSA ones already but i read somewhere might need 3 so i just went and ordered anyway

They do NOT ship FAST using Philpost here to the USA at all. Trust me on this because I know this from experience.
