The Report of Birth is a declaration of the birth of a child born abroad to parents at least one of whom is a Philippine citizen. Filipino parent/parents must promptly register the birth of a child with the Philippine Embassy or the Philippine Consulate General in order for such a birth to be registered with the Office of the Civil Registrar General in the Philippines.
Ideally, the birth must be reported within twelve (12) months after its occurrence to the Embassy or Consulate that has jurisdiction over the place of birth. When the parents neglect to report the birth within twelve (12) months, the birth may, nevertheless, be recorded upon the determination of the consular officer of satisfactory evidence on the authenticity of the report. In these cases, the person who executed the report shall furnish the Embassy or Consulate with an explanation surrounding the delay in reporting the birth.
