PhilSys Step 2 Registration: How to book an appointment


The PhilSys Step 2 registration is the capturing of biometrics

Registrants for the Philippine Identification System (PhilSys) continue to increase amid quarantine restrictions across the country.

The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) reminds those who will proceed to the Step 2 face-to-face biometrics registration to follow the standard health and safety protocols.
