Request for your PSA Documents Online via

This is it! We’ve decided to tie the knot this year!

Planning a DIY wedding is nerve wracking. There’s a lot to tick on our checklist! One of the things on our list is the documents ~ birth certificate, CENOMAR (certificate of no marriage), marriage license, etc.

Now, where to go to request for our CENOMAR? I know that I can request those at PSA (Philippine Statistics Authority). However, since we already moved here in Rizal, I’m not familiar where the nearest PSA is in our area. Another problem is that I won’t be able to leave home during weekdays because of the kids’ online classes.

I came across PSA Helpline thru Mommy Bloggers Philippines and learned that they can help me request my much needed PSA documents delivered at my doorstep.

Here’s a list of the PSA documents you can request thru PSA birth certificate online application:
• Birth Certificate

• Death Certificate

How to Get the New and Improved Philippine Postal ID

Are you like me who doesn’t have any valid IDs or proof of identity except my birth certificate? Fret no more because there’s one you can get easy and fast!

My valid IDs expired last 2020 and Andrei’s IDs expired earlier this year so we’re now having a hard time doing transactions because offices and banks always ask for it for security reasons. We have an important transaction and we needed an ID right away.

So if you’re wondering what ID you can get that won’t ask you for another valid ID (lol to this!), I can recommend you getting a postal ID because it’s the easiest (and fastest) to get.

The day before we went at the post office, I prepared our documents. Since it was Andrei’s first time to apply for a Postal ID, the documents he brought were:
• 2 copies of the application form
• NSO birth certificate (original & photocopy)
• credit card billing statement

That’s it! As for me, I renewed my Postal ID so I only brought:
• my expired digitized Postal ID and
• 2 copies of the application form

We arrived at Marikina Post Office around 11:30 am. There were 5 people ahead of us. We paid P650 for our IDs (rush) then our photo and biometrics were recorded. We were told to come back after a week to claim our Postal IDs. If you’re not in a hurry, you can apply for the regular one which will cost you P504 and it will delivered to you in 15-30 days (depends where you live).

It was also easy to claim the IDs, we just presented our claim stub on the day we were told to come back and we got our Postal IDs in less than 5 minutes.

BTW, you can apply at any Post Office nationwide. My address is in Makati but I applied in Marikina.

I think I can put my new postal ID more into use because so many government offices and banks are accepting it now as a valid ID.
