Getting a Philippine Death Certificate

27 Jan 2011

Death certificates can be obtained on security paper (preferred method) from the PSA or at www.ecensus.com.ph.

Certified copies can be obtained from local civil registrars.  As in the cases of birth and marriage certificates of deaths occurring since 1946 are obtainable from the National Census and Statistics Office. Death certificates before 1946 are maintained at the National Archives Division National Library Building at T.M. Kalaw St. Ermita Manila. Issuance of a death certificate takes approximately five working days for which there is a fee of 115 Pesos in person or 200 Pesos by mail.

5 Thoughts on “Getting a Philippine Death Certificate

  1. A client died in 2004 outside the country ,(Cyprus). The deceased has death certificate issued in the country where he died; but no records shown in PSA. How can we get a copy or how can we process for PSA to record his death

  2. Just a question, an unmarried couple who live together, and if her partner was.previously married also in the philippines, in case her partner dies, is the present partner (the girl) able to request his death certificate since they are not legally married or is it only the legal wife able to obtain this certificate?
