The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) recently offered a more convenient way of providing original copies of civil registry documents like birth, death, and marriage certificate as well as the certificate of no marriage (CENOMAR).

KAMI learned that Filipinos can easily request for their civil registry documents online via “Serbilis” website of PSA.

In a report by the ABS-CBN News, Filipinos living outside the country can also request for their documents and have it delivered to the country they are currently residing.

“We extended our channels of accessing our civil registrar documents for people outside of the country to request for birth certificate," said PSA Civil Registrar General Lisa Grace Bersales in DZMM TeleRadyo.

Bersales noted that request for CENOMAR has a higher price because it is harder to find in their archives.

There are just three steps to request for civil registration documents online:
