NSO Philippines

In the Philippines, the history of National Statistics Office for many people cannot be traced simply by visiting their website (www.nso.gov.ph). People got used to calling the Census with NSO, hence many application forms from NSO birth certificate, marriage certificate, CENOMAR, death certificate and its corresponding authentication processes may be had in the office and traced there. For more information, please visit the official website mentioned above or call them in their telephone numbers as listed in the website.

DIDN'T FIND WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR? SEARCH BELOW

Services by the National Statistics Office (NSO) have also been one of the most important services of the Philippine government to its people. A good example of how important these services is when one is looking to apply for a DFA passport. If you visit any of the DFA branches, you will find out that one of the requirements before you can be issued your own authentic passport is to have an authenticated birth certificate or marriage contract. The NSO provides this service.

Another much important service is their authentication process. DFA passport application for one will require that you produce an authenticated birth certificate before you can go ahead with the next step in your application. The Social Security System (SSS) also requires an authentiated death certificate for those whose death benefit claims are on the process. The also provides this document for the said purpose.

The Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) for one also requires the authenticated birth certificate for their examinees. Without one, according to a nurse graduate friend of mine, you won't be able to take the exam or should you pass, you won't be given your professional ID.

There are so many uses of the NSO and its services in the Philippines and should you need to ask for more information, please don't hesitate to leave your comments below our posts.

I need help. The church made a mistake sa marriage contract namin and put FILIPINO as my nationality but when in fact I'm a canadian citizen. We have tried to give LCR all the supporting documents to prove im canadian but to no avail they have informed us to request for a petition for a regional court hearing. Is there anyway we can avoid this since the church even admitted that it is their fault and like stated earlier have all the legal and supporting documents (true certifies copy -canadian documents)?

Hello! I just need a clarification please...I begotten my daughter out of wedlock last December 2000.By that time it is not allowed to carry fathers surname yet without a marriage contract.Last 2003 we got her legitimated through our subsequent marriage.6 years after we are acquiring a copy of her nso birth cert but to our surprise she is still carrying my maiden surname.Is it not its the civil registrars office responsible for updating my daughters birth certificate? Since i already got a certificate of legitimation from them? Thank you.

hi, this is girlie. i hope this site can give me correct solution to my problem. i have been registered twice since my mother had not received my 1st registration's b-cert. what i have been using since the very beginning was my 2nd birth cert, this includes my scholastic records, credentials and my insurances. When i applied for my NSO copy of my b-cert on 2006, they have generated the 2nd b-cert so we really thought the 1st b-cert does not exist. This Jan 2012, when i applied again for NSO copy of my b-cert, only then i knew i have been registered twice. since there is different data on the 1st and 2nd b-cert, i would prefer to use the 2nd one (which i have been using from the very beginning) what procedure should i follow? Can someone transact it for me since im not in Philippines and i urgently need this for my marriage application.

My sister is having a problem on her first name when she receive the NSO copy of her live birth. He used Georgina Tobias Estrada ever since, even her public documents bear that name but lately when she got her NSO live birth copy, it contains wrong first name and wrong one letter on the middle name as it reads as Gorgonia Tubias Estrada, we applied change name with our local civil registrar, we furnish all the requirements and finally it has been submitted to them and probably forward everything to NSO office in Manila. I called awhile ago asking our local civil registar when will be the expected date that we have that corrected copy of NSO live birth, they told me that it will take 4 to 6 months. Please help us to have it expedite as we really need it very badly before end of this month of May 2013. Hope this message can help us before its gonna be too late.

They released Sept. 27,1967. then when on my second time going to abroad I went to teh NSO again to get Authenticated b,cert. And Sept 27,1969 appeared. so I asked a lawyer for advise and he said that I should use the latest authenticated b.cert. He made for me an AFFIDAVIT OF DISCRIPANCY. So all my old passport are renewed using this Sept. 27,1969.
