  1. I have already settled my payment online, can I cancel my request or get a refund?

Unfortunately, you can’t cancel or request a refund for your CENOMAR application. The PSA has a no-cancel and no-refund policy for their services. This is why you need to plan ahead and make sure to allot enough time for the document to be delivered to you for the purpose you may have for it.

  1. How do I know that my document delivery was unsuccessful?

There are three cases where a delivery can be considered as unsuccessful:

  • If the individual who requested it could not be located or no longer lives in the address specified in the delivery request.
  • If the document was not accepted at the delivery address.
  • If the given address is inaccurate or not complete.
  1. Is it possible to request another delivery in case my initial request was unsuccessful?

Unfortunately, you can no longer follow up on another delivery request for an unsuccessful delivery. A document that has been processed and shipped out is already considered done. You will need to go through the process again to make another request.

  1. What other documents can I request from the PSA?

Aside from a CENOMAR, you can also request for a birth certificate, marriage, and death certificate – all of which can be requested using the same method as you would request a CENOMAR.

  1. My partner is a foreigner, are they still required to get a CENOMAR?

Interestingly, if you plan on getting married in the Philippines, then yes you still need to get a CENOMAR for your partner. This is a legal requirement before you can get married in the country.
