It has been said that without the legal proof of identity, children will be left uncounted and invisible.
In the Philippines, having a PSA (NSO) Birth Certificate is a critical step missing to establish a child’s legal proof of identity. It is required by most government services in the country. A proof of existence so to speak.
Whether you’re enrolling for some units in school, working on your bank requirements, applying for a job, a PSA is one of the primary identification documents. With its importance, it is vital for you to have one, handy.
No time to process for one? Fret no more! You can now order a copy of your birth certificate online. Want to know how? Read on…
