Important documents such as birth certificates, marriage certificates, CENOMAR or certificate of no marriage, and death certificates can be obtained at the Census or the National Statistics Office (NSO). These documents may also be obtained online. However, since some people are unavailable or too busy to pick up these document themselves, they need to authorize someone to pick up.
Here is a sample authorization letter to pick up any of such documents from the Census. Use a Arial or Times New Roman 12 font for easier readability. Print on a letter size bond, while the use of envelopes are optional.
