Step By Step Guide on How To Order Your PSA Birth Certificate Online

One of the most important document that we needed in our our life is our Live Birth Certificate.

Back in the day, I remember having an old copy of my birth certificate. See below the copy issued from a local city registrar. As you can see, the quality is not secured as it is just from a photo copy machine with a regular bond paper and rubber stamped with signature for the certification which is very easy to forge.

I also had to line up and go from a different window and then wait for another couple of days for the release of the copy. Glad that those days were over and glad we now have one government agency, Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) that regulates and serves as the central statistical authority of the Philippine government on primary data collection. Securing a copy of birth certificate is essential as it is mostly needed in many legal transactions like getting a passport, requirement in enrolling in school or even for some in job application (local and abroad) When it is your first time to apply for a Philippine passport, they will require you to submit an original copy of PSA issued birth certificate.
