How to get Postal ID in the Philippines

Postal ID is the fastest government ID that you can get in the Philippines, you can claim it in 1 to 3 days after you register. But you need to complete first the requirement to apply for Postal ID:


NSO Birth-Certificate
Photocopy only.

Purok Clearance (25.00 PHP)
You can get this in your Purok where you live, this actually cost 25 PHP and a requirement to get your Barangay Clearance.

Cedula and Barangay Clearance (85.00 PHP)
You can get this in your Barangay Hall. If it’s your first time to get your Cedula, you need to fill up the form and submit it to the officer. For those who have cedula already you just submit old Cedula and don’t forget to update your weight (kilos).

For Barangay Clearance, together with your CEDULA and Purok Clearance submit it to the officer and tell them that its for Postal ID and Police Clearance. After getting your Cedula and Barangay Clearance, you need to go to your nearest Police Station where you live and have your barangay clearance STAMP.
