The original poster is talking about "Malacanang authentication," a legacy from earlier times and still required by some countires for proof of document legitimacy. When sending legal docs from the U.S. for use in the Philippines, such as Powers of Attorney, birth and marriage certs, they have to be "red-ribboned," or authenticated by RP consulates in the U.S. first.

The U.S. Embassy doe not recognize "red-ribbon authentication" or "Malacanang authentication" as proof of document legitimacy.

I thought the OP was thinking of presenting his authenticated NSO-BC & MC with special Red Ribbon cake... Opps, joke only, just trying to spice up something here.

Seriously, from the bank I had worked with, we examined customary Special Power of Attorneys anywhere outside the Philippines that were notarized by foreign public/private lawyers. There is no way the bank could verify them. So by requiring those documents to have outright authentication and sealing of red ribbon marked by RP Consulates around the world, the documents presented could be assumed reliably legitimate. (Only in the Philippines!) This standard requirement helps minimize attempts of falsifying documents that are 'allegedly' notarized outside the Phils.
I also wonder why and what was the OP's confusion to seal his authenticated NSO-BC & MC with red ribbon for? dry.gif

Sonia,

Some other country consulates require "Malacanang red-ribbon" authentication of legal docs for immigration purposes. Because of that, it is a common perception among many Filipinos that the U.S. Embassy would also require such authentication.
