New Philippine Postal ID: Requirements and Guidelines

Why is there a new Postal ID when we already have one?
The reason why the Philippine Government issued another version of Postal IDs is because the old version is just a paper laminated which can easily be falsified and duplicated. As we all know, Postal ID is something that proves our identity and residency so it contains private information. With this as a problem of breach of copyright, we strongly suggest that you update your Postal ID to a newer version.

The features of this new and improved Postal ID are as follows:

  • Digital fingerprints capture, photo, signature and personal information
  • Quick Response (QR) code is printed on the card (Can verify the identity of the owner using smart phone apps)

Below are the requirements for the new version of Postal ID in the Philippines:

  • Birth Certificate authenticated by NSO or Local Civil Registrar
  • Proof of Address
  • Barangay Clearance
  • Utility Bills (Electric Bill, Water Bill, Statement of Bank account)

For Married Women

  • -Marriage Certificate to verify the changed name status

For Minors

  • -Must be accompanied by their parents or guardians
