Discover the latest PhilSys update: 1.3 million Cordillera residents register for the national ID. Explore the process and benefits.

The Philippine Identification System (PhilSys) continues to make significant strides in the Cordillera Region, as the latest report from the Philippine Statistics Authority - Cordillera reveals. From May 2021 to December 2023, a total of 1,327,450 individuals in the region have successfully completed the registration process, marking a remarkable achievement in the implementation of this nationwide initiative.

Driving Towards Inclusivity: Registration Statistics

The data showcases a robust participation rate, with registrations accounting for 73.8% of the region's total population based on the 2020 census, which reported 1,797,660 residents. This substantial uptake underscores the eagerness of Cordillerans to embrace the benefits of the national ID system.

Regional Breakdown: Leading the Way

Benguet emerges as a frontrunner in registration numbers, boasting 617,158 registrants, followed by Abra with 188,568, Kalinga with 171,263, Ifugao with 144,358, Mountain Province with 109,197, and Apayao with 96,906 registrants. This distributed participation across provinces showcases the comprehensive reach of the registration campaign, ensuring that individuals across the region can avail themselves of the advantages offered by the national ID.

Streamlining the Process: Encouraging Further Participation

Despite the commendable progress, the Philippine Statistics Authority - Cordillera continues to advocate for individuals who have not yet registered to seize the opportunity to do so. Notably, appointments are no longer required for the registration process, streamlining accessibility and simplifying the path to acquiring the national ID.

Compliance Made Easy: Requirements for Registration

While appointments are no longer mandatory, it is essential for individuals to prepare the requisite supporting documents for the registration process. By ensuring compliance with the necessary documentation, registrants can expedite their registration and contribute to the efficiency of the overall system.

The mandate for PhilSys registration stems from Republic Act 11055, or the PhilSys Act, which underscores the importance of establishing a unified national ID system for Filipinos and resident aliens. This legislative framework provides the necessary foundation for the implementation and enforcement of the registration process, ensuring its adherence to legal standards and objectives.

Transforming Transactions: The Role of the National ID

The significance of the national ID extends beyond mere identification, offering a gateway to streamlined transactions across various sectors. From public offices to private enterprises, enrollment in educational institutions, and opening bank accounts, the national ID serves as a catalyst for efficiency and accessibility. With its implementation, government services are poised to undergo a paradigm shift, with the national ID emerging as the primary document for seamless transactions.
