Monday, June 20, 2022

With the borders slowly opening, I started to check for the visa requirements in order to fly to some of my favorite countries like US, Korea, and Japan. Unfortunately, all my visas were already expired. Some of these visas will need your original birth certificate, and even passport renewal requires one too! So I looked up on how I can order a birth certificate online.

Delivery was also a breeze. I received the documents individually wrapped in plastic packaging to avoid getting wet or stained in transit. I was also able to easily order a marriage certificate for my senior citizen mom, para less hassle na for her. Highly recommended service!
