NSO Marriage/Death Certificate Late Registration

Bonjour. Mabuhay.

Previous post dealt with late registration para sa birth certificate.

It is good to note that the law applies for this with force:

“The child shall be registered immediately after birth and shall have the right
from birth to a name and the right to acquire a nationality …”

Article 7. Convention on the Rights of the Child (Ratified by the Philippines in July 1990)

For marriage and death records, here are some pointers:


In delayed registration of marriage, the solemnizing officer or the person reporting or presenting the marriage certificate for registration shall be required to execute and file an affidavit in support thereof, stating the exact place and date of marriage, the facts and circumstances surrounding the marriage, and the reason or cause of the delay. (53:1a)


No delayed report of death shall be accepted for registration unless the following procedures and requirements are observed and complied with by the concerned parties:

a) four (4) copies of Certificate of Death, which must be accomplished correctly and completely;

b) affidavit for delayed registration which shall be executed by the hospital or clinic administrator if the person died in a hospital, clinic or in a similar institution, or by the attendant at death if the person died elsewhere. In default of the hospital or clinic administrator or attendant at death, the affidavit shall be executed by any of the nearest relative of the deceased, or by any person having legal charge of the deceased when the latter was still alive;

c) the affidavit referred to shall state among other things, the name of the deceased, the facts of his death, the date and place of burial or cremation, and the circumstances why the death was not reported for registration within thirty (30) days after death;

d) authenticated copy of the certificate of burial, cremation, or of other means of corpse disposal; and

e) approval for registration by the health officer in the box provided in the Certificate of Death. (50a)
