REPORT OF BIRTH

The birth of a child born in Italy or other countries under the jurisdiction of the Philippine Embassy in Rome to parents who are both Filipino citizens or to one parent who is a Filipino citizen must immediately be reported to the Philippine Embassy in Rome through the application for Report of Birth (ROB).

The ROB will be forwarded to the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) every end of the month for onward transmittal to the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA). The transmittal of the ROB will be indicated in the parents’ copy of the ROB, for their reference.

Please note the rule that only information obtained at the time of birth shall be recorded in the birth certificate, and not the information prevailing at the time of registration, as per Manual of Instructions of R.A. 9048. In view of this rule, parents who are already married at the time of registration, but whose child was born before their marriage, cannot register their child as legitimate. Therefore, parents applying for ROB of their children born before these parents were married (e.g. child was born on 15 February 1995 and parents of said child got married only on 15 March 1995) shall submit the required documents.
