My passport and that of my wife were processed except that of my 17-year old daughter because her birth certificate was indicated as late registration thus, they asked for a baptismal certificate which was not brought by us during the interview. We secured her baptismal certificate when we returned home but it indicates that she was born on May 19, 1995 and not May 18, 1995, her real birthday as appearing in her birth certificate. What is the remedy so that she she can reapply for a passport?
