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.
