In yesterday’s blog, we have established that the DFA requires a copy of the applicant’s PSA birth certificate if it is his first time to apply for a passport. Likewise, if the female applicant wishes to change her maiden last name to that of her husband’s she needs to submit a copy of her PSA marriage certificate, whether applying for the first time or renewing her passport.
In this week’s posts, we will feature the UNIQUE REQUIREMENTS for passport application, particularly the supporting documents that DFA requires for special cases. This is for individuals with Late Registered Birth Certificates, or those whose birth details were reported beyond the reglementary period set by the Local Civil Registry and PSA.
In addition to the core requirements we featured yesterday (refer to this blog), the following supporting documents must be presented if you have a Late Registered Birth Certificate.
- If your Birth Certificate was registered at least ten (10) years ago, the application will be treated as a regular application and no additional supporting documents will be required.
- If your Birth Certificate was registered less than ten (10) years ago, you must submit IDs that pre-date the late registration.
- If you do not have IDs that pre-date the late registered Birth Certificate, you must produce current IDs and secure an NBI clearance to support your passport application.
These are lifted from the www.passport.gov.ph website. Take note that the DFA may still require additional documents depending on how your case will be evaluated.
Tomorrow, we shall feature the passport requirements for individuals who do not have birth certificates or report of birth.
See you again tomorrow!
