How to get PSA Certificate Online – Birth, Marriage, Death or CENOMAR

| ,

Back in the days when you need to fall in line for almost a day just to get your authenticated NSO/PSA Birth Certificate needed for your job or school. I remember when I was applying abroad and I need to provide the agency with my authenticated NSO/PSA Birth Certificate as part of the requirements.

I visited PSA regional office branch in Legazpi, I have no idea that it would be crowded in the PSA office that time, so I go almost 9 am. I’m a little bit upset when I saw the queue of applicants reach outside the building.

I have no choice but to fall in line, and when I arrive at the counter to submit my application for Birth certificate, there’s no time to process my request and I need to go back again the next day to get the certificate.

This is very time consuming and expensive. We are lucky today because the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) formerly National Statistics Office (NSO) launched their website where you can apply and get your desired certificate online. Not only that, they also partnered with Pilipinas Teleserv a call center agency where you can also apply for NSO/PSA certificate.

As of this writing we have two official websites where we can apply for NSO certificates. The by Unisys and the by Pilipinas Teleserv, you can choose either of these two websites to apply for your PSA certificate.

But while searching online, I found some negative feedback when they apply using e-Census website like the certificate they requested did not arrive.
