Civil Registry

Births, deaths, and marriages of Filipino citizens temporarily residing in China should be reported and registered with the Philippine Embassy/Consulate. Reports of birth, death and marriage are then transmitted to the National Statistics Office in Manila.

Notarization and Authentication

The Philippine Embassy may notarize and authenticate public documents for use in the Philippines. Certifications/authentication of Chinese documents such as birth certificate, marriage certificate, business registration license, health certificate, etc., require prior notarization by a notary public in China and authentication by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Beijing. Notarials are made on affidavits executed by Filipinos before a Consular officer in the Embassy. Passports and relevant documents may be required by the Consular Officer.

Certifications from the National Statistics Office

Application for birth, death, marriage certificates and certificate of no marriage may be made through letter requests and e-census service. E-census service may be used by accessing the National Statistics Office'  website
