How to Apply for NSO Birth Certificate Online

Don’t you just love technology, especially when you don’t have to line up for hours just to get a single documents they can print in seconds? I never tried lining up in NSO just to get my birth certificate. I just order my birth certificate through the NSO Hotline and pay for the corresponding fees. When I found out you can order online (I don’t have a landline since there’s no use for me anyway), I’m happy. 

I finally got a chance to try the online facility of NSO. My husband needs a NSO-certified birth certificate so I decided to give it a try – and it’s easy! Here is a step-by-step by guide on how to apply for your NSO birth certificate online. Birth Certificate 11. Go to and click Order Now. 

2. You will be directed to a page that allows you to choose what type of document you need. Click Birth Certificate. Birth Certificate 23. The next screen will ask the purpose for such application. Choose the corresponding answer. Birth Certificate 34. The next screens will ask you whether you applied for a birth certificate before and if you are able to get it. Answer accordingly.  Birth Certificate 4Birth Certificate 55. Then, you will be asked to fill out several information about yourself such as name, birth details and parents’ names. Click SubmitBirth Certificate 66. If you had any legal proceedings done in your birth certificate, disclose it. In this case, my husband had no legal proceedings done to his so I just clicked None. I’m not sure what happens if you clicked any of the options below the ‘Examples of Legal Proceedings.’ Birth Certificate 77. Next, fill out the information as to who will receive the birth certificate upon delivery. If the person requesting the document will not be the one to receive it, the person authorized must present an ID or photocopy of it once the document is delivered. Birth Certificate 88. Proceed to Checkout. The information you provided will be summarized on the left part of the screen then don’t forget to input the delivery address. Click Continue. Birth Certificate 9

9. Choose your Payment Options. Birth Certificate 1010. Pay for the corresponding fees and wait for your birth certificate to be delivered. 

What do you think? Easy, right? And way more convenient too! I hope this post helps!

    I never tried NSO online before. I would always go to NSO or city hall for our birth certificates 🙂

    So easy! So unfair to those like us who spent a whole day just lining up haha! I already have an NSO birth certificate, but I’m really curious to do the process. How long before it gets delivered?

      2-3 days after payment 🙂 Mabilis lang naman, as long as you have a previous request already. It took a week for my youngest to get the birth certificate delivered kasi it was our first time 🙂

    Finally, getting these documents have become fast and easy. I hope the government will automate the other agencies as well to cut on red tape.

I Would Love to Hear from You :)
