Just last week, I decided to apply for a postal ID simply because I needed another government ID to use for identification. Thanks to my brother who previously applied for a postal ID, he gave me a few tips on what to bring before actually going to the postal office to prevent delays.
|Paranaque Central Post Office|
Before going to Paranaque Post Office, here's what I submitted and you need to bring:
- Very important: Baranggay clearance. I went to our local baranggay office first to apply for a baranggay clearance and they processed it quickly in 10 minutes. I paid P20. This is needed for proof of residency. If you don't have this, they will simply send you home to get one first.
- One photocopy and the original NSO copy of your birth certificate
- One photocopy and the original SSS or Passport or Driver's License.
- One photocopy and the Certified True copy of your Marriage Certificate (for married applicants)
- Filled up application form ( form available on site)
- Bring 504.00 pesos for the ID fee.
Make sure you know your SSS/GSIS number, TIN number, and height in cm. because you'll be writing these in the application forms.
Here's the official poster of the requirements for further clarification:

The step-by-step process of the ID application:
|Yes, you read it right. The official application fee for the Postal ID is P504|
It's been a week since my application and I'm still waiting for my ID to be delivered to my address. I will update this blog post once I got my ID.
Thanks for reading!
