Honda Guy...Thank you for the personal feedback about Quezon City. This is what makes this Forum so awesome and helpful because somewhere out there is someone who has been through the exact same thing at one time or another.

I will certainly have my Fiancée or her mother go directly to the local Civil Registrar in QC and ask them about their policy. Hopefully you are correct and the US Embassy website is just simply outdated about this failure to accept the affidavit.

Jim and Nila 143...thanks for the feedback but I have one other question...hopefully it is not a stupid question, (I was always taught that there is no such thing as a stupid question), What does SFO stand for in your response? The only thing that comes to mind is the San Francisco mail service, (SFO) but I know that doesn't fit in this situation...(?)

I want to be sure so I can pass the information along to my Fiancée.

I bring up the point about asking stupid questions because if your mind is focused in a particular direction, simple abbreviations just don't click sometimes. I remember one store who had posted a big sign in their front window saying "Only CC Allowed". For the life of me I could not figure out what they were trying to say...was it "Closed Captioning" or Certified Copies" or "County Citizens"?

I went in and ask the store clerk and she looked at me kind of crazy and told me it was that "Credit Card" transactions are only allowed in this particular store. Well...needless to say, I felt a little stupid at the time...but for fear of looking stupid again, (Hahaha), I always like to double check about abbreviations if I am not sure what is meant.

The biggest issue I can see for you will be getting the copies to you in the Philippines. I would suggest paying the extra to have them FedEx'ed to you because of the slow and uncertain Philippine mail issues.

Also, make sure that you are on the States official website. There are "other" companies who provide a service to get you certified copies of your Birth Certificate but they will charge you an arm and a leg. I accidentally clicked on the wrong link for my state and got one of these companies and ONE certified copy cost me $80.00!

Later, I did contact the official state website, paid with a credit card online and received five certified copies in less than a week for LESS money than the other company charged me for one copy...

Good Luck in getting yours. Although it might take a while for the actual delivery of the documents, I don't think you will have any issues.
Well. it sounds like I should get a few copies before i go there. It is easy enough to do while I am still here. BTW, I can get it pretty quickly (already looked in to it).

Thanks!!!

SFO is the three digit code for San Francisco Internation Airport.

Jim,

Where were you asked for 3 copies of your birth certificate? I dont see anything on the US Embassy website about needing birth certificates and the Quezon City Civil Registrar Office doesnt say it requires birth certificates from foreigners either. Of course every city is different; just curious where that requirement came from.

Thanks!
