The Philippines Statistics Authority (PSA) launched Friday, April 30, the online registration for the Philippine Identification System (PhilSys).

In an effort to create a universal identification card in the Philippines, Republic Act 11055 or the PhilSys Act was signed into law in August 2018. Under PhilSys Act, a Filipino Identification System has to be established and monitored by the PSA.

The registration and application for PhilSys are entirely FREE to all eligible registrants.

Meanwhile, those who already have registered via the house-to-house data collection will no longer need to apply again online.
