what are the requirements in getting cedula?

I practically know why in the instructions that there is no amount cause the reason you put why you want a cedula will vary. if you are getting a cedula for employment purposes they will not charge you that much since as of the moment you are unemployed and so on.

what is up with that philippines?

I would like to inquire about the letters and numbers before the cedula number, CCI2010? Does the number change as the year changes? that is, if today is 2012, CCI2012? Please comment.
