Filipinos can now apply for and secure their official National ID more conveniently at various Megaworld Lifestyle Malls.
The Philippine Identification System (PhilSys) was founded back in 2018, in order to have a single national identification for all Filipinos and resident aliens. The national ID or the PhilID can then be used as valid proof of identity, without the need to present any other documents.
As the government works to speed up the implementation of the PhilID, they have partnered with Megaworld Lifestyle Malls to reach more citizens. So, while a mall patron shops, dines, or runs personal matters at select Megaworld Lifestyle Malls, he/she can also register for the PhilID at the mobile registration offices that have been set up in the properties.
For the first step, applicants must complete the online registration form here. They will be asked to indicate their full name, date and place of birth, blood type, address, marital status, and contact details. Applicants must then book an appointment, and choose a registration site.
The second step is proceeding to the scheduled registration center on the specified date. Upon visit, registrants should bring the necessary primary documents.
The third and final step is waiting for the issuance of the PhilSys Number (PSN) and the delivery of the official PhilID.
Those who are residing in or around Pasay City can choose Newport Mall as their location to complete Step 2 of their PhilSys national ID registration. The satellite office is located at the 2F, Garden Wing, beside Adidas Originals. They are catering applicants from Monday to Saturday, from 10:00AM to 6:00PM.
Eastwood City residents and neighboring areas have the option to schedule their applications right at the township, from Monday to Saturday, from 8:00AM to 5:00PM. The registration office is located at 3/F, Eastwood Citywalk.
For Filipinos in Iloilo, you can book your registrations at the premium lifestyle center, Festive Walk Iloilo. You can find the PhilSys office at the 2F, Hallway, beside Bruno’s Barbers. They accept registrants from Monday to Saturday, from 10:00AM to 7:00PM. They are open until September 30.
In Southwoods City, Laguna, PhilSys registrations are ongoing at Southwoods Mall. Those with official appointments can head over to the mall’s Basement Entrance. They are accepting applicants from Monday to Saturday, from 8:00AM to 5:00PM.
The PhilID will be given free for Filipinos, with no expiry. The PhilID for resident aliens, however, will only be valid for one year.
