Report of Birth

The report of birth is a declaration by the informant of the facts and circumstances regarding the birth of a child abroad where at least one of the parents is a Filipino citizen at the time of birth. The report shall be executed by either one of the parents, preferably by the Filipino parent, or by the attending physician or nurse, including as supporting document, if available, the Certificate of Birth issued and authenticated by the relevant local civil authority or government office.

Like the report of marriage, the report of birth will be forwarded by the Embassy to the NSO to provide an official record of the birth abroad and to serve as primary reference of the status as a Filipino citizen of the child born abroad with such rights as provided by law.
