Birth, Marriage and Death Certificates Now Have Permanent Validity

When applying for a new job, passport, school, and others, we are always required to submit a copy of our Birth certificate. Some legal documents like Marriage and Death Certificates are always asked too. But why do we always have to renew these certificates?

In the new Republic Act 11909 or “Permanent Validity of the Certificates of Live Birth, Death, and Marriage Act”, these essential documents can be used without any expiry.

The principal and co-sponsor of this new law is Former Senator Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan and shared the good news on his social media pages. “Good news ito lalo na sa mga kababayan nating nag-aapply ng trabaho at eskwelahan, nag-aapply ng passport, at iba pa. Malaking tipid sa oras, pera, at pagod”, says the caption.

“Bilang principal author at co-sponsor, nais kong pasalamatan ang mga dati nating kasamahan sa Senado sa pag-apruba sa panukalang batas na ating inihain, lalo na kay Senador Bong Revilla sa pagtrabaho ng pagpasa nito. Umaasa tayong magiging malaking kaginhawahan ito sa ating mga kababayang Pilipino at nawa’y magpatuloy pa ang ating pagpapasimple ng bureaucratic process”, he added.
