How to Get a Postal ID in the Philippines (Requirements and Procedures)

How to get a postal ID in the Philippines? We listed the complete requirements and application procedures here. The Philippine Postal Corporation (PHLpost) announced that they would issue a new postal ID card in recent years and that became a reality already.

The new and improved postal ID card will now be accepted to any office or agency, just like the other government-issued IDs in the Philippines. It is easy to apply for the new postal ID, and it will be delivered to your doorstep after a few days.

The old laminated postal ID was very vulnerable and easy to copy. That’s why PHLpost launched a new ID card system. You can also use the new postal ID card when getting a passport as DFA approved it as one of the accepted valid IDs. Likewise, we can use it for our transactions at the banks, hospitals, ports, and other offices.

It’s a pleasure to share the details, requirements, and procedures in getting the new postal ID card. I would like to thank Marie Grace Dizon and Gia Anne Villanueva from the PHLpost, who contacted me to spread the great news.

What is a Philippine Postal ID?

A Philippine Postal ID is a valid identification card issued by the Philippine Postal Corporation to resident citizens and resident foreigners of the Philippines. The postal ID has advanced security features such as an automated fingerprint system and sophisticated identity verification.

What does the new postal ID look like?

The new postal ID card is hardbound, just like an ATM card and a UMID card. In addition, it also has electronic security features (listed below). It will be valid for 3 years for Filipino citizens and foreign residents with Special Retiree’s Resident Visa (SRRV). For the rest of the foreign residents, it will be valid for 1 year.

  18. Thanks for this informative blog! Really appreciate it since I am one of those who are interested to get one.. its just that.. I think with the current system and the fee plus the validity of only 3 years? That sucks! No way! Not worth it.. In my case I have to visit 2 different offices in two separate towns since capturing office is located 2 municipalities away from the accepting office then wait is 20 days or even longer? Gosh! And not only that,. with this new postal ID system, whoever idea was it.. I don’t understand exactly are they thinking of.. Who’s happy with a plastic card paying as high as equivalent two days salary of the minimum wage earners spending at least 1 whole day to do that shitty process only to utilize the said card with in such a limited validity..
    My thoughts: Better stick with the paper cards and pay less while spending few hours in processing since you expect that card to sit in your wallet for only just 3 yrs or go with the plastic cards with all those pains but how about increasing the validity to atleast 5 years..

      • Good day! This is my first time to apply for a postal ID and I badly need a valid ID after I graduated college. I just want to clarify with regards to the proof of address. I’m still living with my parents and I’m worried if they’ll acknowledge the utility bill that we usually have which is named after my father. Will they accept it? Or are there any other documents that I can present to them that proves my current address?

        Looking forward for your response. Thank you and God bless!

  20. Mygahd! Kakakuha ko lang netong NEW Postal ID last year pero eto at may IMPROVED Postal ID naman. Nalaman ko lang na may IMPROVED Postal ID na dahil di sana tatanggapin ng LBC yung NEW Postal ID ko para magremit kasi yung IMPROVED black-colored Postal ID lang daw tinatanggap nila.

    500 pesos for NEW Postal ID + 400-something(discount daw para sa may mga NEW Postal ID) for the IMPROVED Postal ID. Dapat free o mas malaki yung discount na binibigay.

Since I am staying in Marikina, I should go first to the post office here in Marikina and submit my downloaded application form and the other requirements. Then, I would be asked by them to go to the nearest ID capturing station. (I prefer Camp Crame).

    • Pwede na NSO birth certificate and police clearance since it’s the easiest to acquire (kailangan lang ng cedula bago kumuha). Kung yung bill na gagamitin mo is named after your relative, submit ka din ng photocopy ng valid ID nila tapos papirmahan mo for authentication or samahan mo ng authentication letter from them para tanggapin nila.

Sabi ko bakit po 550 php ang total ng babayaran pero nilagay niyo sa receipt ay 504 php lang? Sabi niya para daw yun sa “processing fee”? kaso wala lang daw silang receipt para dun kaya 504 ang nilagay niya instead na 550.. So hindi ako pumayag, sabi ko gawan niyo po ako ng receipt na ang nakalagay 550 php ang siningil niyo sa’kin dahil need ko ipakita sa parent ko. Ayun binigyan niya ako at pinirmahan niya.. Talaga po bang may processing fee pa na nakabukod sa babayaran? Kaya ako humingi ng another receipt ay para may proof ako na yun ang sinabi niyang price sakin. Thanks po.

  39. I just got my TEMPORARY postal ID today June 8, 2016. Applied last May 30 at Robinsons Otis. it looks the same as the original postal ID. Valid lang sya for 3 months, nakalagay sa kasamang letter na yung replacement will be delivered before my temporary Postal ID expires. Akala ko eto na talaga, yun pala hindi. Katulad na katulad ng original card talaga yung temporary postal id. I think pineperahan lang talaga ng philpost mga tao, tapos wala naman darating na replacement. Buti na lang may OLD postal ID ako na laminated valid until 2017. Yun na lang gagamitin ko kesa dito sa bago na within 3mos mageexpire na agad. Kurakot talaga sila!

  52. Nagpunta po ako ng Pasay Post Office last Feb 16, 2016 Tuesday to get Postal Od, with all the requirement with me.. pagdating po ko po dun around 8:00am po nagfilled up po ako ng form.. tapos pinasa ko na po sa attending employee.. tapos inenterview po ako a few minutes regarding dun sa apps ko., then sani sakin babalik pa ako ng Feb 23, 2016 for the biometric daw po. And its one week pa. At binigyan ako ng contact number (cel no.)
    Bumalik ako Feb 23, 2016 for the sais biometric. Na late ako ng almost 2hours at nakarating ako past 9am na po. Tapos sabi sakin bat ako na late? Bat di ako nagtext? Nag apologize naman po ako dahil sa pagkakalate ko.. at sabi nung assigned sa biometric maramindaw syangginagawang mga sulat for delivery kaya di nya ako makukuhanan ng biometric.. sobranb nagmakaawa po ako pero dipo ako pinagbigyan to know na wala naman pong ibang nag aaply dun at wala pong nakapila for biometric. Sabi ko po pagbigyan nyo naman po ako kasi papasok po ako sa work mag hahalfday nalang po ako. Sabi nung employee mamayang hapon bumalik ka. Hindi na ako nagsalita kasi baka anu pa masabi ko. Tapos ang sabi sakin mag lunch ka muna.

    Bumalik ako 1pm at ng pumasok ako ng Pasay Post office may kumakain pang mga employee tapos ang sama ng tingin sakin na para bang “bat ito pumasok eh alam naman nyang kumakain pa” umupo ako sa upuan at sabi nung isang employee 2:30 pm pa ang sched ng biometric”. Sabi ko sa sabi nyo sakin kanina mag lunch muna ako kaya po to assume na ma ke cater nyo na po ako after lunch kaya bumalik po ako baka ma late na naman ako at dina naman ako makapag biometric. Walang may nagsasalita at ako ay umupo lang dun hindi ako umalis. At sa tagal kong nakaupo nag observe ako sa paligid. Hanggang almost 2pm na saka ako tinawag for biometric. At after ng biometric sinabe sakin na March 16, 2016 pa ang Postal ID ko ma dedeliver sa adress na binigay ko which is sa Pasay lang din po.
    Nagtataka ako kasi ang nasa website:
    METRO MANILA 5days,
    Other municipaliteis 7days
    Provincies 3weeks
    Ganito po ba ang kalakaran? Kahit Pasay lang ako? March 16 pa ang receiving ng Postal ID ko?
    Nkaka frustrate lang po dahil maliban sa di maayos na COSTUMER SERVICE, delayed pa masyado ang delivery., to know na may kasamanb TAX ang binabayaran namin sa pagkuha ng POSTAL ID.. pagpasok palang sa office nila wala kang makitang may facial good mood ang mga mukha nila! Na kung titingnan natin kaya sila sumusweldo dahil sa mga costumer nila na katulad kong kumukuha ng postal ID including tax..!

    Government service? Costumer service? Asan?

    • HI lea, if I were you I should have taken the identify of that employee and reported right away on that very day, may smart phone ka naman siguro sna navideo mo usapan nyu, we are in the technological generation everything might be solved with that way, and that evidence is valid to all authorities. So next time you go back there to claim ur id, be sure to be ready, because I know your ID might not be available yet.

  81. Hello, just wanted to share the below, which happened today at 10-10:20am.
    I went to the UP Diliman Philpost branch to submit my postal ID application, because it says we can go to any branch, only to be told that they don’t process ID requests and that I should go to City Hall.
    At the City Hall, the lady at the counter very grumpily asked for my barangay clearance, even though the revised requirements say any utility bill will be accepted. She did not accept the utility bill I presented.
    Just wanted to share this because I thought the new requirements would make the process easier and more efficient. Either the instructions published in the gov website are incorrect, or the employees are not following them. Either way it is very inconvenient and I wasted time, money, and effort.

    Reply
    • I also experienced the same thing at PhilPost Makati. But I told the one who assisted (unsatisfactorily) me that it was stated in their poster that a proof of billing is OK. I demanded him to ask his supervisor and it was accepted. The problem with government employees is that akala nila ang tataas ng position nila. Imbis na tulungan ang mga tao mas lalong pinapahirapan pa. We must all be very firm too with our rights. Di yung pag sinabi hindi, hindi na talaga.

    My niece applied for the postal ID today April 8 which she needs on April 23 for her college scholarship requirements. However to her dismay, she was told the ID will be delivered after 3 weeks after , way over the day it is needed. My mother who accompanied her told the post office officer if the process can be expedited and willing to pay for the rush processing. Negative.

    I found on this site that for those living in Metro Manila it would only take 5 days.

    Please help how I can help my niece get her postal ID before April 23.

    Hoping for your positive response.Many thanks!

  88. I went to UST Post Office today to apply for my son’s Postal ID. I have all the requirements (BC-Orig & Copy; Barangay Certf). Lady in charge told me that the date on the OR of my son’s BC is way back in 2008. She said that they only honor BC’s w/ OR-Date that’s within 6-months old. On the requirements to apply, it said: Birth Certificate, original and copy. Doesn’t say that the date on the OR of BC should be within the 6-months old. Why is this lady saying a different story? Is she just giving us a hard time or is she not competent enough to handle her job?

    • Thank you Ms. Fehl for clarifying the issue. I would suggest then that the 6-month time or 6-month freshness of OR on new BC’s should be added on the “The New Postal ID Requirements”. There might be other people that have their original BC & their OR is past the 6-month time limit. It will at least ease the confusion. At least they will be aware and save time when applying for the Postal ID. Thank you and God Bless!

  90. It’s really an inconvenience that the list of capture sites posted on PhlPost’s website is inaccurate. I went to the satellite office of Taguig City Hall located inside Market Market mall because it was supposedly a capture site based on the list; only to be informed by the information desk that they do not process postal id applications there. Worse, I think the officer behind the info desk does not have any idea on the Postal ID application process as she pointed me to a PhlPost mailing booth. /facepalm/ The government really has to work on their accuracy in information dissemination on their websites. Checking online has always been the most cost-efficient (no need to travel to their offices) means of researching procedures on transacting with government agencies.

  92. Wayback 2011, I applied for the renewal of my postal i.d. at Lipa city Postal Office. I was told that I have to apply again as new member and I have to submit again the requirements stated. I went to NSO to secure my birth certificate, I have my barangay certification, my marriage license and I even presented my old postal i.d. but sad to say, the postal personnel rejected my application saying that my surname in my birth certificate is unreadable. No matter how I argued with her showing her all my pertinent documents, she still refuse my application. In my anger, I went to DFA Batangas to secure my passport renewal and without any hassle, I was able to get it. My question is that why is it that the postal personnels are making it hard for ordinary people like me to get a postal i.d, claiming that it might be used for criminal activities. My gosh, I just can’t believed what I heard then. What can you do to ease up people just like me who need a valid i.d? Just for your information.

Like in other countries, for example Malaysia, all citizens have their own identity card with a microchip that stores all personal information about the person. Everything you need to know about the person is on the identity card like SSS, Pag-ibig and Philhealth etc. It would be easier to identify persons who violated the law. It will be very convenient for all because you will only need to renew 2 of your Identification cards, the other on would be the driver’s license. It would also benefit our government offices like SSS, pag-ibig, Philhealth, Philippine Postal Corporation etc. Instead of wasting time and resources just issuing I.D.s for everyone, they can focus on services that we Filipino people really needed.

  108. Thank you very much for this very valuable information, i hope that this is the eye-opening of our government officials that all filipino citizens of the republic of the philippines should undergo the postal identification process inorder to facilitate the faster transaction of our fellow to any Private and government sector—dapat dito nila ibuhos yung mga Pork barrel nila para lahat ng pinoy magka ID pagtuntung palang ng 7 years old dapat may postal ID na para magkaroon ng disiplina ang ating mga kababayan…pag may Postal ID yan hindi basta basta gagawa yan ng kalokohan kasi naka ID system na sya.

  110. Dapat wla na iyang postal id (Philpost ID) na iyan mam.Dapat ang ipush ng government natin ay Philippine Identity Card para kahit anong transaction sa phil govt agency ay iyan lang ipakita.

    • I agree, Doble-doble gastos lang itong iba’t ibang IDs ng iba’t ibang agencies dito sa bansa kung pwede naman ang iisa, nationally-recognized na I.D. kung maiimplement.
