Is Your Marriage Contract in NSO Paper?

For Filipinos who are married, just married and will be getting married, here is something that might be of interest to you. We are all aware that in the processing of important documents like passports, VISAs, social security, bank loans, etc. a marriage certificate printed in security paper (SECPA) and issued by the National Statistics Office is more often than not included in the requirements.

If you find yourself just married and would like to speed up the processing of your marriage certificate, you can endorse it yourself or you can ask your local registrar to have your marriage certificate electronically copied so that when they endorse it to the National Statistics Office, it will no longer have to wait along with the other paper documents that need to be archived and scanned. I wonder if the National Statistics Office in the Philippines has a scanner software that manages and makes archiving documents easy and well-organized because I was told that it will take about six months before you can get a copy of your marriage certificate printed in security papers from the NSO. If you are in a hurry, waiting six more months is definitely NOT an option, right?

What's so special with this security paper anyway? Nothing really... Your document is just like your original since it is a scanned copy and has the following additional features: an NSO seal at the top left corner, a bar code at the lower left of the sheet that determines where your record was archived and the signature of the issuing officer at the lower right.
