A National ID applicant will be required to submit his PSA birth certificate upon registration and majority of the information that will be placed in his ID will be lifted from his birth certificate.  Below are the demographic and biometric information that will be collected from you when you apply for a National ID:

  1. Demographic Data
  • Full name
  • Gender
  • Date of birth
  • Place of birth
  • Blood type
  • Address
    1. Permanent address
    2. Present address (optional)
  • Filipino or resident alien
  • Marital Status (optional)
  • Mobile Number (optional)
  • Email Address (optional)

Take note that the first four items (full name, gender, date of birth, and place of birth) shall all be lifted from your PSA birth certificate.  It is best to be sure that your birth certificate is free from errors such as misspelled names, incorrect gender, incorrect date of birth and place of birth.

2. Biometric Information

  • Front-facing photograph
  • Full set of fingerprints
  • Iris Scan

The Philippine Statistics Authority shall apply exceptions to applicants who have visual or physical impairments that make it impossible to collect their biometric information.

If you still do not have a copy of your PSA birth certificate, you can order at the www.psahelpline.ph and have the documents delivered to you.
