My experience with the online system

In my case, my father needed to have his original copy of birth certificate for renewing his passport. I have been to the office of Philippine Statistics Authority in Sta. Mesa Manila by using Uber cab. I noticed that it is difficult to commute from Laguna to Manila. So, I have decided to try getting it online.

This is how I did:

Status Date Time
Requested birth certificate via 31-Jul-17 7:40pm
Paid thru UNION bank 1-Aug-17 11:15am
Received notification of delivery 4-Aug-17 6:40am
Birth certificate delivered and received 4-Aug-17 4:00pm
It was indeed a hassle-free experience because, I just requested online at home and just paid it in UNION bank near our home. And my father got surprised that a delivery man was looking for him for a document from e-census.
my experience
Getting your valid certificates is very important for any legal purposes. So, always keep your original copy/ies.
