I went to National Statistics Office (NSO) earlier this afternoon to continue with the processing of my birth certificate (filed VL for this). I was already on the 3rd step of the entire process. I waited in line for 3 hours to submit the documents and pay the cashier. They gave me a small piece of paper containing the date when the Certified True Copy (CTC) of my birth certificate will be released. This means, I still have to go back to NSO.
