The Report of Birth is a declaration of the person furnishing information on the birth abroad of a Filipino child. It is important for Filipinos permanently residing abroad to promptly register with the Embassy the birth of a child in order for such a birth to be registered with the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA).
When a child is born abroad to parents who are both Filipino citizens or to one (1) parent who is a Filipino citizen, i.e. one who has not been naturalized as a citizen of a foreign country, the child’s birth must be immediately reported to the Philippine Embassy or Consulate General which exercises jurisdiction over the place of birth. The Report of Birth (or PSA-issued Birth Certificate, if ROB was issued more than six months ago) is also one of the requirements should the child apply for a Philippine passport.
After 6 months from the registration of birth at the Embassy/Consulate, the PSA can issue the official birth certificate upon the request/application of the parents.
Note: The form must be accomplished neatly. No erasures please as this will be the permanent record. The Embassy has the discretion to reject forms that are sloppily accomplished or with erasures or with wrong entries and with wrong stamp by the notary public.
