Get your birth certificate within one day

I have had the sad experience of trying to get my birth certificate at the NSO "serbilis" branch at Pasay along Macapagal Ave. I needed my birth certificate on Wednesday so I don't have the luxury of time to call up their hotline and have it delivered since it takes them about three to four days and someone said that if you go to NSO branch, you can get your birth certificate within the day.

So my boyfriend and I went to the Pasay branch at around 9 am. There were already a lot of people there. I thought at the very least we would be finished around noon. I was dead wrong. We finished at around 1:30 pm but the good news is that we could get our birth certificate at 5 pm.

Anyways, someone said that you should not be going to the NSO branch during Mondays since it's always packed with people. Best advice is to go their at 7am from Tuesdays to Fridays.
