Birth certificate advice for fiancee in getting her first Philippines passport

Recommended Posts

The mother and daughter can always reconcile their differences in time of need! 

did you miss the part about the dad scamming them?   Sure all problems can be fixed with enough grease 

Isn't the issue that her middle name doesn't match her mothers maiden name? Both of which are on the BC. How can she just start using the misspelled mother's name regardless?

might work for passport but sure not for visa

Our experience tells us the the Tacloban office is very strict, while Bacolod is rather lenient. She sent to me copies of what she was given at Carcar, but not the actual documents so we can see what the problem really is. Until we actually SEE what the problem is, and what documents she has, we cannot offer much advice. Passports are becoming harder to get the last few years, many clients are having trouble with this now. As has been stated, it is much easier to go by whatever is on the BC than try to change an error in a surname. (A given name can now be corrected without a judge's order. but a misspelling in a surname cannot.)

 

If the OP is using you now to help his GF get her passport and visa, then he and his GF are in good hands. I'm sure that you will help them get the passport with the least amount of grief.

We don't process passports, but help a lot of clients to get them, nor do we process visas for the UK.  So far all I know is what is posted here, as she seems reluctant to share the actual documents. I fully agree with your idea of trying the Bacolod office as you outlined. I also suggested to her to try Travelways in Cebu, as they have been very good in the past at getting passports when other methods failed.

Glad to see someone is paying attention and understands why we are trying to do this properly  :good:

I don't think she is reluctant to share the actual documents, I believe the issue is the documents are currently with Destination Specialists agency up in Cebu City so she doesn't currently have them at hand

Look if supporting documents have miss spelled names they must be fixed. RP9048 covers it.

My wife's NSO BC was one of those that was smudged so she had a letter from the LCR with all the info on it.

 

She had been using it that way for two Passport issues. She had lost one in a flood.

 

When I was reading and comparing the NSO BC with the LCR letter I noticed that the LCR registry numbers were different.

 

The next time she was in town, she went to the LCR and found that there were two BC on file. One with a date 1980 and the other with the date 1981. Everything else on them was correct.

 

Turns out the one at the NSO was the one with the wrong date 1980, but it was smudged in the date area so you couldn't read it. No one had ever questioned that it was a 0 instead of a 1. Besides the LCR letter said 1981.

 

They said they couldn't just send the right one to the NSO until a judge invalidated the wrong one.

 

Anyway a few weeks later she went to the NSO in Dumaguete to get copies of everything she would need for her Visa. We were both surprised when the NSO BC was now the BC with the correct date of 1981 and it was also readable. I had her go back in and get 10 more copies before they maybe changed it back to the wrong one again.
