DAVAO CITY — The Fixed Registration Center-Sarangani General Santos (FRC SarGen) is now accepting registrants aged 15 and above for the Philippine Identification System (PhilSys).
The agency also noted that those who finished the Step 1 demographic sign-up, either online or house-to-house, will be prioritized for registration, while walk-ins or those who have yet to start registration will be accommodated if some Step 2 applicants with appointments will not show up.
The FRC-SarGen team assured of strict observance of safety standards, specifically the wearing of masks and physical distancing. It also noted that Step 2 registrants are also advised not to wear makeup and accessories nor use contact lenses.
Registrants of the Philippine Identification (PhilID) card or national ID won’t be entertained if they are wearing sleeveless tops or sando and aside from bringing their own ballpens, registrants must have alcohol for hand sanitation and valid ID or other documents.
Signed into law by President Rodrigo R. Duterte in August 2018, Republic Act 11055, or the Philippine Identification System Act, aims to establish a single national ID for all Filipinos and resident aliens.
The national ID shall be a valid proof of identity that shall be a means of simplifying public and private transactions, enrollment in schools, and the opening of bank accounts.
