DFA Authentication of Documents Requirements and Procedures

We can now authenticate our documents for Red Ribbon on some DFA regional offices. DFA announced they accept documents such as PSA Birth Certificate, CENOMAR, NBI Clearance, PRC documents, LTO licenses, CHED CAV, TESDA CAV, DepEd CAV, Affidavits and many more.

We’ve been to the DFA recently and we got the complete list of DFA authentication documents and requirements. See them posted below.

This is very convenient because we don’t need to go to DFA in Manila or DFA Aseana to do the processing and claiming of our Red Ribbon authenticated papers. Find out the procedures, requirements and fees below.

  4. Question regarding COE DFA Authentication. I am a Registered Nurse but I have a working gap of 1 year and 6 months.. During that time I was taking care of my Mother who was diagnosed with breast cancer. When I applied for a nursing job in saudi, the agency insisted that I need to patch up my working gap by putting a Private Duty Nurse as one of my experience. All documents are required to be authenticated as required by the Saudi Embassy for Dataflow. The problem is I can only present a letter whereas my mother has a signature in it stating that I did cared of Her. I don’t have any certificate of employment as a PRIVATE DUTY NURSE. All I have is a letter signed by my mother. The agency again insisted that its okay. This letter was made as instructed by the Agency as well. Now my question is, does the DFA Authenticate letters like that? Because I think you don’t. I don’t want to have any problem regarding my documents. I want it to be 100% legitimate. Thank you hope somenone will answer my query.

      3. Representative’s valid ID and its photocopy

    • Foreign documents should be authenticated from the same country of issuance. You need to apply first your marriage certificate from Philippine Embassy and you will collect the certificate from NSO main office in Manila. Then, request for red ribbon.

  50. Hi FEHL!

    I graduated few years ago.
    Since I LOST my original TOR and original DIPLOMA before, I requested to my state university an original one again.
    They were able to provide me TOR original, it’s CTC/Authentication and it’s School CAV.
    But not DIPLOMA because they told me it is issued only once.
    My school is CHED CAV exempted.
    And my question is, IS IT POSSIBLE TO RED RIBBON ONLY TOR??
    WILL DFA ACCEPT IT???

    I would very much appreciate a reply from you.

    Requirements is:

    1. Original Joint / Separate affidavit of parents of the Filipino national giving consent to the marriage with the foreign national which should be authenticated by DFA (Department of Foreign Affairs)

    2. Original affidavit of singleness / willingness of the Filipino national authenticated by DFA (Department of Foreign Affairs

    i enquired in cagayan DFA they said “We regret to inform you that RCO Cagayan de Oro as of now have no Authentication Services, only in DFA Manila.”

    Because of my budget i cant go to manila, is that any possible way to apply online or through agents is that safe ?

    some saying ” DHL for the services that you want to avail. They accredited to DFA Aunthentication.”

    if i ask they saying i need to go to court local judge?

    is that anyone here got the Aunthentication from judges?

    how much cost for this two certificates and what is the process to get this certificates from DFA manila and online , agents?

    how much cost if i apply through DHL and local court judge?

    Please guide me and help me!

      • Hi!

        Do I have to provide a notarized special power of attorney to get the processed red ribboned document from DFA?

        I have asked my sister to process it for me (im residing in Abu Dhabi) and i have provided an authorization letter . Today my sister suppose to claim the red ribboned marriage certificate sana, but she was advised na magbigay daw ako ng notarized special power of attorney para maireleaseung documents.

        Appreciate your response.
