If you need a copy of your PSA birth certificate, marriage certificate, or CENOMAR, or maybe even a loved one’s death certificate, you can choose one of three ways to request for a copy:
- Get an appointment at the nearest PSA Civil Registry System (CRS) outlet and request for a copy over the counter.
- Order your PSA certificate online at PSAHelpline.ph and have it delivered to you.
- Or call the PSA hotline and request for a copy over the phone and have it delivered to you.
Getting a copy at a PSA CRS Outlet
The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) implemented the PSA Online Appointment System last year to provide a more organized, systematic, and efficient way for Filipinos to personally request for civil registry documents at PSA outlets nationwide. To get an appointment, you need only to logon to https://appointment.psa.gov.ph/. Setting an appointment is free of charge; you may also change or cancel your appointment within a given timeframe.
When you have a confirmed appointment, you are sure to be attended to when you visit your chosen PSA CRS outlet. You may request for copies of your own PSA certificates and those of your family, relatives, and other people.
