The Manila City Hall Series: How to Request for Reconstruction of Unreadable Birth Certificate Entries Part 16 of 16

09 - 05

The last installment of our Manila City Hall series is about unreadable entries on civil registry documents and how the copies can be restored.  If your birth certificate could not be read because the prints have faded over time, it may not be honored as an authentic civil registry document.  Here is how you can have it reconstructed.

Reconstruction as per Registry Book

  1. Bring the certificate as per Registry Book.
  2. Old copy of birth certificate to be reconstructed (local or PSA copy).
  3. ID of document owner and requesting party (if reconstruction is requested by a representative only).
  4. Pay the fee of Php 240.00 and submit requirements to Ms Cecilia Amorin at Room 117-A.

Requirements as per Reconstruction as per Index Book

  1. Bring certificate as per Index Book.
  2. Old copy of birth certificate to be reconstructed (local or PSA copy).
  3. Birth certificate of brother or sister or Marriage Contract of the registrant.
  4. ID of document owner and requesting party (if reconstruction is requested by a representative only).
  5. Pay the fee of Php 240.00 and submit requirements to Ms. Cecilia Amorin at Room 117-A.

The first copy of your reconstructed birth certificate may be secured at any PSA branch nationwide.  Succeeding requests for copies of the reconstructed PSA birth certificate may be done by calling (02) 737-1111 or by ordering online at http://www.psahelpline.ph.

  1. Malabo po ang copy ng psa bc ko at wala po akong original copy ng bc ko ang tanging meron po ako Ay ung ibinibigay ng LCR na parang biodata type n bc. Dahil sa nasunog po noon ang munisipyo at nakasama ang mga papel ng halos karamihan hindi po ako makakuha ng parehas na kopya na gaya ng nasa psa ko. Kpag po nag apply ako abroad hinihingian po nila ako ng certified true copy ng bc ko kaso wala po ako makuha sa LCR dahil nga po nasunog ito noon ang ibinibigay nila sa Akin ay ang biodata type or yung parang sunod sunod na details ng bc ko kaso kapg un po ang ibinibigay ko ayaw po tanggapin dahil magkaiba daw po yon. pwede ko po bang iapply ang bc ko for blurred or clerical error

  2. As PSA result came out my brother BC has blank data from father, mother down to the last page. It’s really blank even the print in the form is also completely blank. We went to LCR Bongao, tawi- tawi for the reconstruction but the registrar Marilyn jimlan don’t know how to reconstruct a BC. We came home failure back to Zamboanga City.

    1. Did you ask the LCR if they have a local copy of your brother’s birth certificate? If they do, you don’t need to undergo reconstruction of birth certificate. All you have to do is have the LCR endorse the local copy of the birth certificate to the PSA so your brother’s birth certificate will be authenticated and he will then have his very own PSA birth certificate.

      1. According to the LCR, all birth records prior1971 were destroyed in the burning of municipal building. The PSA-Manila through email advised us to go to the LCRO for them to facilitate the reconstruction. But the LCR only gave us certification that all records were burned. It was a waste of time, effort and money that was 2016. And in 2018 we went back there and explain to them our best what PSA told us but another certification again. An INCOMPETENT government employees should not be in that LCR office.

  3. Hello! Nagsubmit po ako ng requirements sa immigration last May for my mom as dependant ko dito sa HK. But nireject nila ang BC ko. They can’t read my birth certificate kasi yung typewritten letter, mismo sa line at ang gulo.
    It’s been like this po, yung original at copies na NSO at PSA. Kahit ako hirap basahin ang mga info. Pede ko po ba ipaayos? Reconstruction po ba ang solution? Kasi hinihingi po nila, yung nababasa nila clearly. Thank you po sa advise.

  4. Good pm po. Nag request po ako sa PSA and negative ang result ganon din sa LCR kung san ako pinanganak. Pero may hinahawakan po akong orig na birth certificate dati kaso ngayon wala na yung orig ko yung xerox nlang natira. Tanong ko kung makakapagpa reconstruct ba ako kung xerox lang hawak ko?

  5. hello po…may dapat po akong ipacorrect na spelling sa middle name ko (one vowel only). may nakuha akong live birth cert. sa PSA pero nung nakipag coordinate ako sa LCR, wala na daw akong record doon dahil nasunog daw. dito na po ako nakatira ngayon sa Maynila, saan po ba dapat i apply yung reconstruction, pwede na po ba dito sa Maynila thru migrant petition? kung magpapareconstruct po, pwedeng sabay na ang correction ng spelling ng middle name ko? kailangan pa po ba idaan sa korte pag spelling correction lang? thanks po.

    1. Hi Jean,

      Ang reconstruction ng birth certificate ay maaari mo nang gawin sa munisipyo kung saan ka naka register, kahit pa sabihin nilang nasunog na ang iyong mga documents. They can use your PSA birth certificate as basis for the reconstruction.

      Pwede mo na ring ipasabay ang correction ng spelling ng middle name mo.

  14. Hello. Do they still issue Form 1A in Manila City Hall? I’m going to apply for a passport and I’m not sure if I should request for reconstruction or request for a supplemental report since the ‘Place of birth’ in my PSA BC is blurred. What do you think is best? Thank you

    1. Hi Bianca,

      You can try requesting for a copy from the LCR (where your birth is registered). If they can give you a copy that’s clearer, then you can simply attach that copy with the PSA copy. Some establishments accept the LCR copy as long as the PSA copy is attached.

      But if the LCR’s copy is blurry as well, you can go for reconstruction of birth certificate.
