Processing Period

  • The processing time is shorter when the copy requested is for a document that is already "converted", that is, the document is already in the Civil Registration System (CRS) database.
  • The processing period for requests for the Certificate of No Marriage Record is longer than that for copy issuance requests. The period could be longer if the surname of the subject person is common such as Aquino, Ferrer, Cruz, De Guzman, and others.
  • Refer to http://www.e-census.com.ph for the delivery details for the requests made on-line through the e-census.
  • Requests made through conventional postal service system are processed upon the receipt of payment. Since delivery of the document(s) is by conventional mail, the documents may reach the recipient several days after the processing period.
