How to get Postal ID – Requirements, Fees, and Procedure

Getting a Postal ID in the Philippines is simple and easy. You can have it in 2 days if you want a rush processing. In this page, I’m gonna share how to get a postal ID and what are the requirements and how much you need to pay and the procedure in getting one.

Postal ID is an alternative Identification Card especially for those who don’t have acceptable valid IDs here in the Philippines. Usually, government acceptable IDs are considered valid IDs in all transactions including bank account opening, office and agencies transaction and many other office matters. Some people have no single ID at all so they get Postal ID as a last resort.

Postal ID verifies and proves postal address and identification of the ID holder. The Philippine Postal Corporation (a.k.a. Philpost) is the authorized office responsible in issuing this type of ID to all Filipinos. So if you want to apply one, go to the nearest Philpost Office in your place or town. They are usually at your Local Municipal’s Office.

Postal ID Requirements

  • Application Form – 2 copies (download it here)
  • 3 pcs 2×2 Colored Photo –White Background
  • Latest Cedula (not needed if minor)

  • School ID if student or Certification from the Principal or School registrar, together with their photocopy of the valid IDs

Postal ID Application Procedure

Go to the Philpost Office near you and file your application for postal ID. Submit all the documents required and pay the application fee. Sign the documents and your ID. Please make your signature similar to all the signatures you use/sign on all your ID cards. That way you can avoid inconsistency.

  1. I’ve got mine today! It was super fast at Hindi ko ineexpect! I applied for the ID Just this Feb 22, 2018, afternoon. My location is mandaluyong and there’s biometrics in the same office as well. In their walls, they clearly state that there’s no rush ID, and that it may take more or less than a month to be released. A lady beside me asked why her ID was not delivered yet and she applied in year 2016. I was a bit disappointed at first because I have to apply to my Visa asap and waiting that long for a valid ID wont help at all. But the process was all smooth and fast so it’s all good. To my surprise, the delivery man arrived today and the ID is very pretty 🙂 I don’t know how mine was delivered so fast, maybe the location take into account too. I salute the service in our municipality now.

Ang kaso ko nga lang nagulat ako sa application form fee na binayaran ko kasi nag hahalagang 414.20 at ang sabi 1month pa daw mapapadeliver sa bahay namin. Bat ganon nag basa ako dito sa website na to na ang application form ay ganito “Right now it’s P175. You may need to pay separate fees in getting required documents like NSO birth certificate, Cedula, Barangay Clearance etc. if needed. at ganto Regular processing – P100 (5-10 working days) at ganto pa Rush Processing – P200 (2-3 working days). bat ganon nasaan yung 414.20 na binayaran ko sa mga yan?

  36. Grabe pala mahal bayad sa Postal ID…I’m thinking of applying for one, buti na lang I read the comments. And I also notice, most establishments they only require the postal ID as a supportive or secondary document lang, hindi talaga main valid ID, kaya pag medyo strict yung establishment at yun lang dala mo ID, they will not accept it. Buti pa UMID, walang babayaran, and 4 government agencies na sa isang ID. Although ngayon matagal makuha, will take months.

    • According to an article posted on February 3, 2015 and the FAQ page for Postal ID Application in PhilPost Official Website, there are only two documents required when applying for a Postal ID, namely: (1) birth certificate issued by the National Statistics Office or the local civil registrar; and (2) proof of address, which can be a barangay clearance or a utility bill showing the applicant’™s name and address. Applicants must bring both original and photocopies of the required documents. Additionally, married females must show their marriage certificate to validate their change of name, while minors need to be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. The application forms will be provided to you at the post office but you have an option to download and print a copy of the forms from PhilPost website so you can fill them out beforehand. These are the same documents I brought with me when I applied for a Postal ID back in May 21, 2008. Although I did also bring my school ID just in case they require another proof of identity which they didn’t. I case you’re wondering, I applied for my Postal ID at the main office in Manila.

      As for the price, both the article and the FAQ page clearly state that the new postal ID only costs Php 370 + 12% VAT (Php 44.44) ANYWHERE IN THE COUNTRY, so the total amount to be paid is only Php 414.44. The price obviously went up, back in 2008 I only paid Php 175.00 and I was provided with an official receipt that I still have with me to this day. Make sure to get a receipt. Remember that it is your right and their obligation to provide a receipt for any official transactions. A receipt will also serve as your proof/evidence in case you decide to file a complaint particularly with regard to overpricing.

      I myself am planning to get a new postal ID sometime this month as I lost the one I got in 2008 besides that one probably already expired and I also changed my place of residence. I just hope, our postal office here follows the fixed fee of Postal ID.

      • Hello,

        This is a very informative comment. May I ask if were you able to get the new postal ID? I would like to know if it’s mandatory to fill in the Postal Reference Number in the form. I don’t remember mine because I lost my old postal ID which was expired already. Hope to hear from you.

        Thanks!

  60. In Pasig City, the Postal ID is priced as follows:

    P375 – regular processing
    P475 – rush processing

    the last time i got one, i only paid P150 in all.

    • Negative NSO birth certificate is not accepted because it means you have no records in NSO. You need to go to the municipal town where you were born and have endorsement so the LCR will endorse your Birth Certificate to NSO Main so your BC will be entered in their database so that when you get one again in any NSO, you will have positive record.

  63. Hi po. Ask ko lang po sana, kung yung Cedula na nakuha ko po last year, pede ko pa po bang magamit ngayon sa pag apply ng Postal ID? Salamat po. 🙂

  64. pag kumuha kami ng postal id, kailangan ng cenomar/ birth certificate. eh pag kumuha ka ng cenomar kailangan din ng id. pag wala kang id, di ka bibigyan ng cenomar. yung kumare ko eversince di nakapagtrabaho, di rin sya nakapag-aral dala ng kahirapan.
    san sya pwedeng magsimula?

    • If you’re applying for passport and you’re married, you really need to submit NSO Birth Certificate and NSO Marriage Certificate plus 2 valid government IDs (SSS/UMID, GSIS, PRC, Driver’s License, Voter’s ID etc) Postal ID is not currently considered as Primary ID. you need supporting documents (NBI Clearance, Police Clearance, Baptismal Cetritificate etc.) if you lack primary IDs

    • Yup if you’re applying for passport, don’t use Postal ID coz it’s not considered as primary ID. Bring supporting documents like old school yearbook, latest NBI clearance, Driver’s license, company ID, Baptismal

  74. Good Afternoon. Thanks for this information pero marami pa rin akong katanungan tungkol dito sa pag a-acquire ng Postal ID, kasi dito sa San Fernando Cebu ang laki ng kanilang hinihinging bayad almost 600 na, tapos sa Barangay Clearance naman meron na ako niyan kaso iba ang purpose, gusto nila kumuha ako “ulit” ng barangay clearance for postal id purposes at hindi for employment na to the fact pareho lang yan as long as dated 2014, ‘dun ako nainis kasi ma do-doble na ang bayarin, magbabayad pa sa barangay clearance eh meron na ako hindi sila tatanggap nun kasi nga for employment daw eh meron sa papel nakasulat nga for any legal purposes pwede e gamit ‘yun..nakakainis talaga pa-iba iba ang reqs.,eh pareho lng nman yan..ang mahal pa ng singil lalo na’t fresh graduate ka palang walang income tapos needed talaga mag karoon ng valid id.,eh yung ibang documents nga na hinihingi ng employers hindi makuha kuha dahil sa kakulangan ng budget kaya hindi na ako nagtaka kung bakit ang taas ng unemployment rate dito sa Pilipinas dahil na rin sa mga ganyan na dapat nga tulongan nila para makapagtrabaho, taking advantage talaga sila.

  86. My 5 friends are trapped in Zamboanga as they have no ID of any kind. All their ID’s were stolen months ago. The ID’s cannot be replaced as they have no documents and are not residents there. Thus they cannot sail (ID required on ferries in Zambo). Their only way out is by bus to civilization. The nearest civilization would be Dipolog.

  87. Hi! i called Philpost customer service at 854 6386 and was informed that they charge 300 for the postal ID , which will be released after a week. There’s additional 12% tax and 30 pesos for certification that a photocopy of your birth certificate is a true copy (if you did not submit the NSO/original copy). The person I talked to said that there’s a circular regarding the fee for the postal ID. You may file a complaint with the main office if the post office charges otherwise. In the Cainta Junction branch, I was told that there’s only one type of postal ID with next-day release and costs 470. I’m going back to the branch to tell them about what I learned from the customer service staff. I will also file a complaint.

    Reply
      • A few weeks after I inquired about the fee for Postal ID processing and almost confronting them about the information that I found out from Philpost, i saw a matrix of the fees posted at the Cainta Junction Post Office. Total amount for 7-day processing is 363 php and processing of 2-3 days is 475. I can send you the photo I took of it to show the breakdown. 🙂

  88. I have the same experience. Sa Sta Rosa Laguna, siningil ako ng Php475.00 at walang resibo. Nag request ako ng rush, wala daw ganon. Pero ang hiningi lang na requirements are Barangay clearance, cedula at isang valid ID. Siguro dahil na rin sa meron na akong Postal ID, nag expire na nga lang.

  89. Di po ba ang Barangay Clearance is certifiying that you are a resident of that particular Barangay, so anu po ang kaibahan nya sa plus other reqmnts na ..(Certification from the Barangay Captain that Applicant is a Bonafide Resident of the Barangay together with the photocopy of the valid ID of the Barangay Captain.)…

    • Apparently that is a supporting document for those who don’t have the primary documents. That Certification needs attachment of the valid ID of the Barangay Captain.
