LGU approval is required for PhilSys registration for children aged 5 to 15.

Local regulations govern the registration of residents aged 5 to 15 to the Philippine Identification System (PhilSys), according to the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) in Sarangani.

Registration facilities will only serve persons 16 and up without an ordinance or express clearance from local government units, according to a recent social media post by the PhilSys-Sarangani.

However, Sarangani has already received approval to accept registrants aged 5 and above for the Philippine Identification (PhilID) card, also known as the national ID.

“Hello, Generals and Sarangans!” PhilSys Registration centers and sites are now accepting anyone aged 5 and above for national ID registration,” PhilSys-Sarangani stated on November 19.

Minor registrants’ parents or guardians must bring an original copy of their children’s birth certificates, as well as any other valid identification card or document.

“During the registration process, minors must be accompanied by their parents or guardians,” PhilSys stated.

For adults, the valid ID or valid documents that will be accepted are passports, Unified Multi-Purpose Identification issued by the Government Service Insurance System or Social Security System (SSS), Land Transportation Office-issued Student’s License permit or Non-Professional/Professional driver’s license, or PSA-issued birth certificate with one government-issued identification document which bears the full name, photograph, and signature or thumb mark.

Among the accepted secondary documents is PSA-issued birth certificate with Birth Reference Number, Civil Registrar-issued birth certificate, Integrated Bar of the Philippines or Professional Regulation Commission ID, Seaman’s Book, Overseas Workers Welfare Administration ID, Senior Citizen’s ID, SSS ID, Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program ID, License to Own or Possess Firearms, National Bureau of Investigation or police clearance, Solo Parent ID, disability ID, voter’s ID, Taxpayer Identification Number ID, Philippine Health Insurance ID, Philippine Retirement Authority-issued Special Resident Retiree’s Visa, national or residence ID from other countries for aliens residing in the country, employment ID, school ID, barangay ID or clearance, and city/municipal ID.

The PhilSys-Sarangani registration centers are open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

The PhilSys team can be reached at 0966-1726772 or 0969-2055146 for further information.

President Rodrigo R. Duterte signed Republic Act 11055, or the Philippine Identification System Act, into law in August 2018, with the goal of creating a single national ID for all Filipinos and resident immigrants.

The national ID will serve as valid evidence of identity that will make public and private transactions, school enrollment, and bank account opening easier.

It also aims to improve efficiency, particularly when interacting with government services, by requiring consumers to provide only one form of identification during transactions.
