Requirements and Procedure for Late Registration of Birth Certificate in the Philippines

|

When I post the instructions how to get NSO certificate online, a lot of inquiries regarding the late registration came in to my page inbox, asking how they can file for late registration because they don’t have record’s at NSO.


So, I have decided to create this article to further help them in their queries. Below are the requirements for late registration of Birth certificate in the Philippines.

Requirements for Late Registration of Birth Certificate

If the person is less than eighteen (18) years old, the following shall be required:

  • Four (4) copies of the Certificate of Live Birth duly accomplished and signed by the proper parties;
  • Accomplished Affidavit for Delayed Registration at the back of Certificate of Live Birth by the father, mother, or guardian, declaring therein, among other things, the following:
    • name of child
    • date and place of birth
    • name of the father if the child is illegitimate and has been acknowledged by him;
    • if legitimate, the date and place of marriage of parents; and
    • reason for not registering the birth within thirty (30) days after the date of birth

    In case the party seeking late registration of the birth of an illegitimate child is not the mother, the party shall, in addition to the foregoing facts, declare in a sworn statement the recent whereabouts of the mother.

  • Any two of the following documentary evidences which may show the name of the child, date and place of birth, and name of mother (and name of father, if the child has been acknowledged):
    • baptismal certificate;
    • school records (nursery, kinder-garten, or preparatory);
    • income tax return of parent/s;
    • insurance policy;
    • medical records; and
    • others, such as barangay captain’s certification.
  • Affidavit of two disinterested persons who might have witnessed or known the birth of the child.

If the person is eighteen (18) years old or above.


  • All the requirements for the person who is less than eighteen (18) years old; and
  • Certificate of Marriage, if married.

How to File Late Registration

The procedure of filing late or delayed registration of birth is like an ordinary registration of birth.

  1. Go to the Office of the Civil Registrar in the municipal or city hall of the place where the birth occurred and bring the requirements mentioned above.
  2. The civil registrar will examine the Certificate of Live Birth presented if it is completely filled with all the requirements needed.
  3. If the foreigner filled a late registration, travel documents showing the origin and nationality of the parents shall be presented in addition to the requirements.

  1. Makukuha din po ba yung birth certificate after maipasa agad ang mga requirements? What i mean is 1 day process lang po ba ito?

  2. Ask ko lng po regarding po sa birth certificate po ng anak ko po.malaki po kc problema iba po ung nlagay n apelyido ko sa certificate niya pano po kaya un sir ? Mas mganda po ba na elate register ko nlng po ba ?thank you po

    • Hindi allowed ang Late Registration, kasi meron talaga siyang record sa munisipyo,
      Magfile ka ng CORRECTION OF ENTRY sa Local Civil Registry Office (LCRO) kung saan naka-rehistro ang birth certificate ng anak mo. Attached mo yung NSO copy ng BC nya na may error at iba pang documents na magpapatunay ng correct surname nya upang maging basehan nila sa pag-aayos.

  3. parang may mali sa requirements,. wala nga kasi birth cert,. kaya mag papa late register,. so saan kukuha ng copy ng birth cert,. ? problema din kasi ng apo kjo yan,. kinuha sya ng kanyang lola dito sa amin noong baby pa sya, tapos lumaki ang apo ko na hindi napa-rehistro,. so nag aaral sya ngayon kaso ang sabi hindi sya maka graduate dahil sa wala pa nga naipasa na birth cert,. so paano kaya ang tamang gagawin para maipa late reg sya,.?

    • Kukuha parin kayo ng birth certificate sa psa ang lalabas don “NO RECORD” yan ang gagamitin mo para mag pa late register para malaman sa local civil registry office (LCRO) na wala talagang record ang apo mo. Then bibigyan kana ng requirements matutong mag tanong sa LCRO officer kung hindi alam ang gagawin.

  13. FYI po. Ito po hiningi sa akin para makapag late register.
    note: 28 yrs old po ako
    – voter’s certificate (75php sa commelec ng inyong munisipyo)
    – certificate of no record( 115php sa PSA)
    – baptismal certificate*
    – joint affidavit of two disinterested person(10php ang form sa local civil registrar)*

    *
    kung may errors po ang baptismal certificate gaya ng maling date,year,month o spelling, mag dala po ng supporting documents gaya ng philhealt o pagibig ID.
    Magtanong nalang po sa pinakamalapit na civil registrar para sa mga alternative duccuments/supporting documents.
    *
    Kung malayo po ang pagpapasahan ng late registration(kung saan kayo pinanganak),kuha po muna kayo ng joint affidavit form sa pinakamalapit na local civil registrar. Tapos ipa edit nyo nalang yong city kung san ipapasa ang form.

  14. Gandang araw po..tanung ko lang po kung pwede dito sa manila iparehistro ng late register of birthcertificate ang anak ko? Sa davao ko po kasi siya ipinanganak..salamat po.
