Mass registration for the National ID System to begin October 12


- Advertisment -

The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) will conduct mass registration for the unified National ID System starting October 12. 

According to the government agency, it will prioritize the registration of 5 million low-income households from the list of the Department of Social Welfare and Development. 

The first step includes going to the houses of selected pre-registrant to get their information and scheduled a day for them to go to the registration centre. 

“Sila ang pupuntahan namin at uunahin namin silang ipa-register o pah capture ng kanilang information para po pagdating nila sa registration centre mas mabilis na ang kanilang pagaantay at pila. Maglalagay kami ng schedule,” PSA Assistant Secretary Rosalinda Bautista said. 

Meanwhile, the second step is when pre-registrants head to the registration centres on November 25 for their biometric capture. 

An additional 4 million people will be scheduled for registration. 

“All in all, ang ipa-preregister namin before the end of the year is 9 million pero yung 5 million na household head ay pupunta na sila sa registration centres,” she said. 

PSA targets to register 45 million people, and another 42 million by 2022. 

“So by the end of the term of President Duterte naparehistro na namin dapat ang majority of the Philippines,” Bautista said.
