The Philippine Embassy performs civil registry services for Filipino citizens residing in Spain and Andorra.  These include reports of birth, marriage and death.

    Civil Registration

    Civil registration is a continuous, permanent and compulsory recording of vital events occurring in the life an individual such as birth, marriage, and death, as well as court decrees, and legal instruments affecting his/her civil status in appropriate registers as mandated by Republic Act 3753 or the Civil Registry Law. 

      Uses of Civil Registry Documents

      • To establish the occurrence of birth, marriage or death, and therefore provide prima facie evidence of facts surrounding these events
      • To serve as identification in legal and personal transactions such as applying for jobs, obtaining passports, applying for entrance into schools, claiming insurance benefits, etc.
      • To provide data on the number of births, marriages, deaths, fetal deaths, adoptions, and the like, which in turn are essential in a country’s development planning
