PSA starts implementation of printed ePhilID

The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) has begun the implementation of the printed ePhilID, a digital version of the PhilID that is printed on paper.

The digital version of the Philsys ID will allow registrants to immediately reap the benefits of being PhilSys-registered as they wait for their physical cards to be delivered.

Even if you claim the printed copy of the PhilID, the PSA assures that you will still get the physical PhilID card.

“The printed ePhilIDs will be issued in PhilSys registration centers nationwide. We hope to replicate the results as we accelerate the rollout to more locations in the country and ensure a seamless process for every registered person in claiming their printed ePhilD,” said PSA Undersecretary Dennis S. Mapa.
