from City Hall - go to Lrt station (arroceros) theres a jeep -ikot San Miguel. I also seen once a jeep with that sign infront of SM Manila waiting for passenger, try it also.

You can also try what Bentghie advise: take Quiapo jeep and from the ilalim you can take the San Miguel Signed Jeep...

hi abby,

you got my pm?! well, from manila city hall, ride a jeepney to quiapo and walk going to balikbayan handicrafts and you'll pass by jeepney's that go inside the malacanang...just tell the driver to drop you at the aunthentication department...

yep, ate ghie is right, go a bit earlier so you can get it in the afternoon so you can proceed directly to the dfa, from there, there's a fx to dfa...

you can do it in one day...just take care, ok!!!

God bless...

From City Hall go to SM Manila, the jeep terminal for San Miguel/ CEU/San Sebastion on the side of SM. Tell the driver to drop you in Malacanang. It is just right across the bridge, 100 meter walk.

Malacanang authentication of documents is not needed for anything used with routine U.S. Embassy visa procedures, despite what you might have been told by other folks. Part of the problem is that Malacanang authentication is routinely expected by some other country Embassies or Consulates for visa processing, and many Filipinos assume this is also the case with the U.S. Embassy.

Authenticated TOR, DIPLOMA and school documents usually needed if you are going to work abroad.

No, no, no. For U.S. embassy visa processing, MALACANANG authentication is not needed. You need NSO Security Paper versions of your legal docs.

I don't know about Denmark, but Swedish immigration also requries the security paper versions from NSO, no more. Since Eurowoman is married to a Dane, but is going to Sweden, I don't know which authority the papers are for.
Does Denmark really require the authentication?

Jolin,

According to this link from the Norwegian embassy webpage it seems Denmark require the Authenticitation in order to issue a Schengen Visa.

http://www.norway.ph...e/residence.htm

If they move from Denmark to Sweden I cant see why they would need any authenticated documents from the philippines execpt the Marriage Certificate to demonstrate that she, Eurowoman, is spouse of a EU citizen.

Hello. As far as I know the authentication is not a REQUIREMENT. I would not be using the authenticated MC in applying for the visa because they only require the one in SECPA paper. However, I will be bringing the authenticated MC with me to Sweden just to make sure we wouldn't have any problems when we need it in the future for whatever purpose. rolleyes.gif

Edit: I have a lot of time in my hands anyways, so no problem for me standing in line for a day. biggrin.gif

Eurowoman, if you bounce into some problem with Migrationsverket (Swedish Immigration Board), I would be happy to know. I think I soon can list the needed documents in my sleep, but you never know for sure until you start tamper with it (which will be far ahead for us).

Welcome to Sweden, both of you!
