What is a PSA Birth Certificate?
A PSA birth certificate is an official document containing a person’s birth details, including their full name, gender, place of birth, date and time of birth, and parents’ basic information. Upon birth, the doctor or any authorized medical staff files a report with the Local Civil Registry Office (LCRO) of the city or municipality where the birth occurred. The Certificate of Live Birth is then endorsed by the LCRO to the PSA for certification and printing on PSA’s security paper.
