Philippine National ID, STEPS AND TIPS!

by - 12:33 AM

So last March, some representatives of the Philippine Identification System visited our area for the registration. Luckily, members of my family got the needed appointment slip after filling in all the needed information. We thought Step 2 would begin in June but we heard good news from our Aunt that the Mandaue City office was already receiving customers for Biometrics! If you wonder how to get this much-awaited Philippine National ID, here are some steps and tips!


Before I proceed, why do we need to own this National ID? Per their website, as a digital foundational ID system, PhilSys will transform how services are delivered and accessed in the Philippines, and accelerate our transition to a digital economy, including enabling presence less, paperless and cashless transactions. 

STEP 1 ( In this part, it was when some representatives visited our area for filling up the forms and acquiring the needed Appointment Slip before proceeding to Step 2)

Log on to and fill out all required fields and submit your application form. Book your preferred appointment schedule to proceed to the Step 2 registration. Make sure to save a copy of your Application Reference Number (ARN) and/or your QR code which shall be presented at the registration center.

STEP 2  ( In this part, here's an important NOTES before heading to the Registration Center. DO NOT WEAR WHITE CLOTHES AND BRING YOUR OWN BALLPEN. Why not wear White? Because the backdrop of  photo id area is White )

Proceed to your designated registration center on the day of your appointment schedule and present your ARN and/or QR Code and bring the original copy of your supporting documents.

STEP 3 ( IMPORTANT NOTE: Registration is FREE and DELIVERY is FREE! If someone asked for payment, report ASAP to the nearest PHILSYS Branch )

Wait for the delivery of your PhilSys Number (PSN) and PhilID to your delivery address. Present your transaction slip or any valid IDs to the courier.
