PSA opens PHILSYS ID Registration Centers in Cagayan de Oro


The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) recently opened Registration Centers for the Step 2 registration process for the Philippine Identification System (PhilSys) in Cagayan de Oro City.

During the Step 2 registration, PSA personnel will collect the registrants’ biometric information, including Front-facing photograph, Iris scan, and fingerprints. According to PSA, the average time for the Step 2 Registration is around 15-minutes.

To avoid long lines and mass crowding, the PhilSys Step 2 registration will only cater to scheduled applications. Note: Make sure to accomplish the online registration at first to secure the Appointment Reference Number (ARN). See the step-by-step guide on how to register online here How to Register for Philippine National ID Online

Registrants must bring their ARN and Barangay Exit Pass, together with two (2) valid government IDs. Kindly bring the original copy of your documents.
