Guidelines And Steps On How National ID Registration Will Process

A national identification system for the Philippines was proposed as early as the 1990s, particularly during administration of then-President Fidel V. Ramos.

However a previous effort to legislate the system has failed due to concerns in privacy and lack of support from the Congress.

Panfilo Lacson began to lobby for the establishment of such system when he was elected as Senator in 2001. During the administration of President Rodrigo Duterte the proposed national identification system had progress in the legislature.

In mid-2016, Quezon City Representative Feliciano Belmonte Jr. and Senator Antonio Trillanes filed House of Representative Bill No. 12 and Senate Bill No. 95 for an identification system for Filipino citizens residing in the Philippines and abroad.

Belmonte claims at the time of filing that the Philippines is one of the only nine countries in the world without a national identification system.

Senator Manny Pacquiao has also filed similar measures.

So, how will be the process to register the national I.D?

As soon as you have preferred the registration center where you wish to apply for your National ID, the next step is to know the process of registration and obtain National I.D. Below are listed following details and guidelines from the IRR of the Philippine Identification System Act:

Guidelines of Registration Process

The applicant shall register personally at any designated registration center by submitting a duly accomplished PhilSys Registration Form (Form No. 1) and presentation of any supporting documents as stated in Section 8.C of this IRR.

The PSA shall ensure that entries provided in the PhilSys Registration Form are consistent with the documentary requirements presented. In the event of discrepancies other than the address, the data reflected on the presented documentary requirements shall prevail.

If there are no discrepancies, the biometric information (front-facing photograph, fingerprints, and iris scan) shall be captured except for applicants below five (5) years of age, in which case, their demographic information and front-facing photograph shall be sufficient.

If the biometric and demographic information of the applicant are found to be unique, a PhilSys Number (PSN) will be generated for the applicant. Otherwise, further verification shall be conducted by the PSA. In the event that the applicant cannot be issued a PSN, he or she will be notified accordingly.

Registration in the PhilSys is deemed successful and complete upon confirmation of registration by the PSA and the issuance of the PSN. Once successfully registered, the person shall be issued a PhilID in a manner to be prescribed by the PSA.
