Don’t have a gov’t-issued ID yet? Get one from this LRT-1 station caravan
For an easier and more accessible Postal ID application
Sep 25, 2018
Speaking from experience, it’s exhausting to acquire a government-issued ID in this country. Most primary ID applications require you present two or more pre-existing valid IDs, which kind of makes you more in a flap given that your application is the reason why you can’t present another valid ID.
But there’s no need to fret over your search for your (physical card of) identity. If you don’t know how the process works, we got you covered in our earlier story on ID collection.
And if you’re only seeking for one primary valid ID that can lead you to your next steps of government ID applications, then all you need is the Postal ID. Issued by the Philippine Postal Corporation (PhilPost), the Postal ID is a primary verification card used for sending letters and parcels through the mail.
Getting one for the next few months will be more accessible as you won’t have to go to your local post offices for the application. Just head to the stations Baclaran and Roosevelt of LRT-1, where the PhilPost is holding a three-legged caravan.
The caravan will be held from Sept. 27 to 29, Oct. 18 to 20, and Nov. 15 to 17, catering to more working applicants with its inclusion of a weekend whole-day schedule.
If you plan to apply, be sure to bring the following requirements to ensure a fast transaction:
- Two filled-up copies of the Postal ID application form
- One proof of identity (PSA or NSO birth certificate, GSIS or SSS UMID card, valid passport, or driver’s license)
- One proof of address (barangay clearance, bank statement, or utility bill)
- Marriage contract for married women
- P504 for the total cost
