Hi, my name is Jeri and I'm 35 yrs of age and still no passport. The reason for this is that i have an error in my birth certificate. I'm male but in my birth certificate I'm indicated as female. I have tried to get this error corrected before, but upon inquiry with our local Civil Registrar, I have to do a ton of paper work proving that, I am what I say I am " which I would gladly do " get a lawyer to do some court things and get it printed on a nationally distributed news paper and pay roughly 50k php for everything and take around 6 months or so. I'm willing to do the paperwork, and go through the whole process, but the thing is i cannot afford 50k, that's why i was not able to do it back then. And just recently I found out that the whole process was made easier and cheaper and I'm currently gathering the necessary paper work to get my birth certificate corrected. And while doing this I ran into an old friend of mine who has been an OFW for years, well to make the long story short he told me there was a position in their company in Taiwan and he would gladly vouch for me. All I needed was a copy of my resume and a Passport.
I would really want to take advantage of this opportunity but there is one problem, although the correction to my birth certificate is on the way, it will take another 2 and a half months to complete, and the job offer is only good for another 6 weeks upon writing this letter. I have already gone back to the civil registry to ask if the process could be sped up and they said no.
I was wondering is it possible to get a passport with this error in my birth certificate? The error is already in the process of being corrected anyways, I just need the passport as soon as possible...
I'm sorry for my very long narrative i just wanna make sure I could provide as much info as I can. And in addition all my school records, past employment records and medical records are male, even my baptismal certificate is male.
I hope to hear from you, and any information regarding this will be very much appreciated.
Thank you very much.
