But, what if you don’t have birth certificate filed at the PSA? Can you still apply for a passport? Here’s how:

Applicants who were born in or after January 1, 1950 should submit the following requirements:

  • Confirmed appointment done online
  • Appear personally at DFA branch
  • Completed application form
  • Valid ID

The applicant who has no record of birth certificate at PSA may present Authenticated Negative Result of Birth Certificate issued by the PSA. Other supporting documents can be presented such as:

  • Form 137
  • Baptismal certificate with dry seal
  • Voter’s registration record
  • National Commission on Muslim Filipinos certificate or NCMF (for Muslim applicants)

For applicants born in or before December 31, 1949, aside from the general requirements listed above, the applicant who has no birth certificate should provide a certificate of non-availability of records issued by the PSA along with other documents such as:

  • Joint Birth Affidavit of Two Disinterested persons
  • Baptismal certificate with dry seal
  • National Commission on Muslim Filipinos Certificate (NCMF) with dry seal and photo (for Muslim applicants)

You can also secure your birth certificate from the Local Civil Registry office of the municipality or city where you were born. The Local Civil Registrar will help you what to do whatever is necessary for your birth certificate.
