I have noticed that you used my ID in this site without my permission. This is unauthorized used. Could you please be careful is using other persons identity as sample in your site for security reasons of the right owner of those IDs. You should be using dummy samples. I have reported this as well to SSS office.
Please be guided accordingly and looking for your immediate actions.

Do i really need to transfer registered voting province in order to get brgy. clearance? Im living here for almost 2 yrs now but i didnt trnsfer here yet. I tried to get brgy clearance awhile ago but they are requiring me to transfer first.
In applying for a passport, can i atleast provide only nbi clearance,barangay clearance and b-certificate as a valid ID? I don't think my school id is valid anymore because I already graduated but in my school id indicates that the validity year is 2012-2015 so it is a bit confusing... please help...
What types of ID will Philippine Airlines accept for a Philippine citizen traveling within the Philippines? Thank you PS: I have looked at Philippine Airlines website and no answer there. Will send them an iquiry if no answer her.
aileen paparro, marriage certificate is considered a valid id but it doesn't bear a photo of the holder/owner. You need a photo-bearing ID for check encashment. Examples of photo-bearing IDs are driver's license, postal id, company/office ID, school ID, passport, etc.
Monette Olayao, if your Police Clearance bears your photo, then it might be accepted. But still it depends on the bank. Try to convince the bank that you badly need a bank account with the help of your friends who have friends in the bank.
hey i have a complaint for you hope ull do something about it. .I visited 2 bpi branches to open an account i brought with me my two valid ids (as listed above) the TIN and PHILHEALTH IDs however they refused to open the transaction they need a passport/drivers license/prc id its kinda unfair for those who dont have those kinds of identification cards. Its a discrimination for us. .if u guys wanted to keep me as ur customer please repond to the email that i provided. .im hoping that ull do something about it. . and by the way the bpi branches are located in ayala cebu! the new and the old one and ur bankers are rude. .i understand the pressure of working cause im also a worker but for me ill do my best to make my customer feel that we value their business. .hope u guys will do the same. .a life long relationship to ur customers. . thanks anyways. .
Hi! your list is the top 28 valid ID's right?..I was just wondering why documents like birth certificate, marriage contract, brgy clearance, etc are included..They don't bear a photo of the owner..2nd question is, why is it that student permit is not included in valid ID's? It is issued by government and bears a digital photo of the owner?
i tried to go in zabarte branch and asked if i can apply i have only birth certificate and postal but they said to me its not required ....please tell me bakit nakalagay dito na valid ito kung ayaw namn tanggapin?nakakalito lang kasi please paki answer namn...kasi un lang ang meron ako kelangan ko makapg open account
Minaaa, I'm not sure if BPI will accept your application if you bring only those two id's. But you can try to submit them. There's no harm in trying. Tell us here if they accept your application with those ID's.
Is T.O.R (Transcript of records) can be considered as a valid I.D? since I have been at the NBI office a year ago and one of their list for valid I.D's is T.O.R and my friend, he use his T.O.R as a valid I.D whenever he claims money at Mlhuillier. I'm quite not sure right now since as I've checked over the internet T.O.R is not included in the list and I told my friend recently that it is a valid I.D and you could use that on claiming your last pay at your company.
gud morning,, my scam po kc na receive ng government office... that someone from other country asking a symphaty financial help sa kanilang country and they already sent huge amount but the claimant never receivve an amount.. how come the remitance release the amount to a fake claimant using peoples name and signature pwede po b to? tnx
hello po di po kasi ako enrolled so and id ko is from last year pa. is that considered as valid id? kasi when i tried kumuha ng padala ng ate ko sakin dapat daw may 2k12-2013 daw. 17 years old palang po ako so student id palng po talaga meron ako.
rhea, your school id is considered as valid id but financial institutions will not accept your id because its outdated (not updated). If you want to have an ID quickly, you can get a Baranggay Clearance in your baranggay office. It will take 15 minutes to get one. Baranggay clearance nowadays are now photo-bearing. Meaning, you have your personal photo appeared in the baranggay clearance.
kumuha kasi aku ng ticket ng friend ko nakalimutan q na 3rd pala cia lahat ng id nya my 3rd kaya kung pwedi po ang baranggay clearance para kuha nalng cia na wag lagyan ng 3rd.. kasi pag palagyan q ng 3rd sa kinuhaan namin ng ticket ma pay pa aku daw ng 1300
Hiyah Khen! Do you have a list of approved government-issued IDs??? because when I checked the list of IDs needed by PLDT for stocks purposes, Postal ID for them is not considered as a government-issued ID...
Gwen, the employee in PLDT is wrong when they said that Postal ID is not a government-issued ID. Postal ID is a government-issued ID. Maybe the reason why PLDT doesn't accept Postal ID is because they consider Postal ID as a low level or insufficient proof of identification. Like some Money Changer businesses in the Philippines, they also don't accept Postal ID. Most of the time, big corporations or big businesses requires a higher level of Proof of Identification (ID) which are: Driver's License, Passport, NSO birth certificate, SSS ID, GSIS Card, PRC ID, Office ID, and other valid IDs listed in the article.
Some ignorant bank employees don't accept this as valid IDs. Don't rely on this one NSO authenticated Marriage Certificate, National Statistics Office (NSO) Authenticated Birth Certificate, Barangay Certificate and Student's ID.
just want to know which id's above are fast to process? i got an urgent need of valid id's... and please correct me, i have this thought that id's must have a picture of the owner.. so i'm kinda doubting that birth certificate and barangay clearance will be accepted as valid id's...
doubleswiper, barangay clearance is the fastest id to process. It only takes 20 minutes to secure or get a barangay clearance in your barangay office. Birth certificate could take 3 business days. There are online services that offers birth certificate delivery anywhere in the Philippines. Postal ID could also be another option. Postal ID could take 3 business days before you can get it.
Liza, having an official signature from HR, SSS and TIN numbers in your ID is not enough indication to be valid. As stated above, to transact business or any financial transactions in the Philippines, your ID must be Government-issued.
For example, if you open a bank account, or receives money from a kwarta padala service centers, most of the time they require you to bring Government-issued ID aside from company ID and school ID. Majority of them don't accept (MLM) networking company ID, or unknown ID from a small business establishments.
