Manila, Philippines – NSO document walk-in application is recommended for those who needs multiple copies of birth certificates request. Online application cost P350 per document/certificate and will guarantee delivery within 2-4 business days, I tried the service last 2009, although payment will still need to be done thru bank deposits. For 2016 I’ll be requesting for 5 NSO documents, visiting the Philippine Statistics Authority office or Census in East Avenue do consider the traffic congestion at any givem time. This road leads to EDSA-GMA Kamuning so expect heavy traffic on weekdays. But as soon as you reach NSO the processing will take less than 30 minutes to complete. I was amazed how fast Census service has improved.

Thousands of Filipinos buy the idea of traditional methods when transacting with government offices. In fact, the community is so used to it that they managed to pull things off despite the difficulties like accepting to fall in line (in a irrational long lines), slow and manual service, the tropical weather of the country, the traffic, and sometimes mistreatment of government employees. The bureau showed a significant improvement on online print solutions of the clearance itself, in fact it can create prints in a few minutes. But in terms of service, the system needs to approach and educate the community how to use the online tool to simplify life in general.
Today, I visited Quezon City Hall to seek NBI renewal (I last applied 2008) not that I like to experience time and again the mentioned old ways. Given the benefit of the doubt, I arrived as early as 8AM to look for NBI satellite office (which from time to time transfers office within the Quezon City Hall) the department could be refer as NPA (No Permanent Address) sometimes in Gate 2, after a year in Gate 1,and so on. Today 2013 NBI satellite office in QC can be found in Gate 5, right at the back of Justice Hall. I melt when I saw the busy lines of applicants under the heat of the sun, just imagined it was just 8AM and people smells like they’ve started working in a construction site earlier. The stall vendors told me some even arrived as early as 3AM! Just to be able to grab the first spot, oh dear that moment I felt like I will collapse if I continue with the line brawl. I decided to go home and search once more and diligently drew my attention to NBI E-Clearance.”
