8,598 residents in Tinglayan, Kalinga complete Step 2 National ID registration

Tinglayan, Kalinga – A total of 8,598 yTinglayan completed the Step 2 registration process for the Philippine Identification System (PhilSys) ID, according to Philippine Statistics Authority-Kalinga.

The figure posted by PSA-Kalinga on their Facebook page on Sunday, October 9, is 72 percent of the 11,930 approximate target population in the municipality.

PSA-Kalinga said this target includes children ages five and up.

Step 2 process involves the capturing of the registrant's biometric information, such as iris scan, fingerprint scan, and front-facing photograph and the validation of information at the local registration centers.

This guarantees the registered yTinglayans of a legitimate identification they could utilize for more efficient transactions with the government and private parties.

Mobile Registration Center in Tinglayan

In order to bring the service closer to yTinglayans, mobile registration has been conducted in the municipality by PSA-Kalinga.

Larae Lactao, Municipal Information Officer of Tinglayan, said PSA-Kalinga installed a temporary office at the municipal hall just in front of the office of Mayor Sacrament Gumilab.

“Adda ti post da dituy munisipyo sangu ti mayor's office. Other times ket mapan da diay barangay mismo,” Lactao stated.

The move of having mobile registration in different barangays, according to PSA-Kalinga, is to accommodate household members who cannot travel to designated registration centers in the province due to health or financial problems, long hours of travel time, bad weather conditions, among others.

Documents to bring when going to registration centers

Registrants from five years old and up are to bring any of the following primary documents when registering for the PhilSys ID:

•PSA-issued Certificate of Live Birth and one (1) government-issued identification document which bears a full name, front-facing photograph, and signature or thumb mark;

• Philippine Passport or e-Passport issued by the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA);

• Unified Multi-purpose ldentification (UMID) Card issued by the Government Service lnsurance System (GSIS) or Social Security Systen (SSS); or

• Student’s License Permit or Non- Professional/Professional Driver’s License issued by the LTO.

If none of the primary documents is available, registrants can bring with them secondary documents such as PSA-issued Certificate of Live Birth/National Statistics Office , Local Civil Registry Office (LCRO)-issued Certificate of Live Birth, PSA-issued Report of Birth; PSA-issued Certificate of Foundling; Integrated Bar of the Philippines (IBP) Identification Card; Professional Regulatory Commission (PRC) ID; Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) ID; Senior Citizen’s lD, among others.
