How Much is Red Ribbon / Authentication Documents Fee / Cost in DFA?

Google Advertisements

Many blog visitors have been asking me how much is the cost or fees to pay in having documents in red ribbon or authentication fee in DFA. For this reason, I decided to post this short yet informative article so that you, my visitors will no longer have a hard time thinking if you can afford to pay for red ribbon or authentication of some of your documents as needed.

For fees / rates, you will only have to pay Php 100.00 pesos per document. But let me remind you though that each application form for authentication and red ribbon only allows a maximum number of documents which is 5 copies. I am not sure though if a second application form will be entertained in case you have 10 documents you need to be authenticated. Anyway, you can call the DFA hotline for this matter or visit their website at Here is a list of documents you can authenticate in DFA.

    Hi there! I just have questions regarding the LTO Cert. with red ribbon. My husband’s driver’s license was expired last July 2012. He is an OFW and he needs to get the LTO Cert. with red ribbon from DFA. Right now, my husband got the LTO certification. Does it really require to renew his drivers license to get the red ribbon from DFA, though he had already the LTO certification? Thank you very much and have a great day.

    for school documents (TOR /DIPLOMA) please request ‘certified true copy ‘from your schools registrars office and if asked for what purpose tell them its for CAV or tell them for abroad. Provide them a copy of your diploma and tor( if you have the original to make it faster) , pay the fees ( i paid P300 ). Your school will faciliate the authentication (CHED & DFA) in my case i waited for a week for the claim stub from DFA via the registrars office of my school, and i can claim my authenticated documents with red ribbon in 2 weeks (via DFA). I was po tayo sa mga fixer.
