What to Do for Negative NSO records and No Copy on Hand Available

Here is a simple guide on what to do if you don't have a document record with Census whether birth certificate, marriage certificate, death certificate or CENOMAR.

  • Go for late registration service. This is a process that you must undergo if your birth certificate or any NSO document was not recorded with the Local Civil Registry where you were born. Same procedures apply if records were destroyed or cannot be found by virtue of natural calamities like flood, fire, earthquake or for whatever reason.

How Much Will The Document Cost?

This is a very costly process to undergo on your own especially if you are in the verge of doing other more important things and cannot attend to the processing hassles and travel expenses and time.

According to the e-Census website, a late registration service will cost Php 20,450.

Plus the only way to be able to avail this delivery service is if you will pay via check ONLY. The check will be issued and should be payable to Vital Event Records Certified Inc. I visited their website and found out the list where your expensive payment will go as enumerated.

Please note that the whole process will take 3-5 months to finish so if your time of need with the document does not allow that much long time, try to find other services or options but never go for fixers. Legal procedures may be needed (correction of entry / legitimation / adoption / court hearings / supplemental records) to secure a document so be prepared.

You will also have to prepare documentary requirements for late registration service but what will be needed will depend on your unique case. Teleserve free consultation with their professional team during the process which is also listed below.

Payment cost includes the following: (source:teleserv.ph)

  • One-on-one professional consultation
  • Automatic email updates
  • Real-time status tracking
  • Personal pickup and delivery within Metro Manila
  • 2 copies of your birth certificate on NSO security paper
  • You will also be able to secure future copies directly from the NSO without any problem.

In case of correction of entry / legitimation / adoption / court hearings / supplemental records need and you've done and acquired an annotated copy or have an annotation on your document, you may apply directly via online and in Teleserve office in NSO branches.
