Valid Philippines ID Guide – How to Apply for a Philippine Postal ID

By Two Monkeys Travel - Contributor May 18th, 2020 Posted in Philippines Travel Blog No comments

If you need a valid ID, especially for those newly married or not employed, the best choice is to get a Philippine Postal ID. Before the Postal ID was a piece of paper with your details type-written, you need to paste your picture and laminate it. Parang current TIN ID, pero ngayon sosyal na! 

The new Postal ID has the basics – your name, address, date of birth and signature that is usually needed in a valid ID. Plus it has security features to verify that the card is genuine and not fake. 

Philippine Postal ID

A Philippine Postal ID is only valid up to three years though, but anybody of any age can get this. It is also offered to Foreign Residents of the Philippines and Special Foreign Retirees. If ever you need IDs for passports or licenses or need one ASAP, Postal ID is recommended.
