Birth Certificate / CENOMAR online application : how to request online

welcome to the real world!
After dropping by the municipal hall last week, I was able to finally sit down and request for our CENOMAR (certificate of no marriage record) online. Most of the government agencies are not even centralized much less computerized and I thank God that NSO is not one of them.

It's very easy and hassle free. Since we both have certified true copies of our birth certificate, we only requested for the CENOMAR. (For the rest of marriage license requirements, read my post about marriage license application

The fees are:
  •  Php 315.00 - per copy of birth/marriage/death certificate
  •  Php 415.00 - per copy of CENOMAR

I'm not sure if it's much cheaper to request it personally at the NSO located at East Avenue. Me? I'll rather have it this way rather than save a few pesos but would have to endure long lines, smog, heat and hunger put together. I just don't think it's worth it.

To go about it, simply log on to Their website is very user-friendly and is very easy to navigate.

It's broken down to 3 easy steps which are:

  1. Apply online - this is where we filled out all the necessary information that will appear on the document such as our names, birthdate, etc. This is also the part where we had to indicate where the document will be shipped. 
  2. Payment - once the online application is completed, a request reference number will be issued. A printed copy of the request is needed upon payment. If a printer is unavailable, the data is also emailed for future printing. 
  3. Delivery  - upon payment, the documents will be delivered. The timeframe is as such: 
    1. 3-5 working days - for those living in Metro Manila, Metro Cebu and Metro Davao.
    2. 4-9 working days - for those who lives in other cities or provinces within the Philippines.
    3. 6-8 weeks - for those abroad. Request to expedite the delivery can be done for an extra cost.

With so many other things to think about, having the government requirements out of the way without having to go out of the house is such a great help.
