Good news for Marikeños! Marikina Mayor Del De Guzman reports that there’s no need for you to travel far and visit the National Statistics Office (NSO) in Manila as you can now apply and claim your needed documents within the city.

The birth, death, and marriage certificate is worth PhP160.00, while the Certificate of No Marriage (CENOMAR) is PhP215.00.
