How to get POSTAL ID in the Philippines?

A quick guide to get POSTAL ID in the Philippines.

Indang, Cavite Branch

1. Download the application form available here or get a copy at your nearest Post Office. (If you get the application form at the Post Office it will be signed already by the officer in charge, much preferable.)

2. Fill it out. Prepare two 2×2 ID pictures in white background (formal/with collar blouse) and 1 Passport size ID identical to your 2x2s.

3. Get a Cedula (community tax certificate) and a Barangay Clearance in Barangay where you reside. Have your postal ID application signed by the Barangay Chairman or OIC (officer-in-charge) if the chairman’s not available.

4. Photocopy your Application form (You should submit 2 copies)

5. Go to the municipal hall and have your Application forms signed by the Mayor. After ’twas signed…

6. Go to the Postal Office at last. (In Indang, post office is located at Indang Public Market) Make sure to bring all the requirements.

  • Two Application forms (Fill out and signed already.)
  • Birth Certificate / NSO (Photocopy )
  • Two 2×2 and a Passport size ID pictures. All identical with white background.
  • Barangay Clearance
  • Cedula

7. The Postman (I don’t know what is he called) will fill out the rest of the Application form and will attached all your requirements. Then he will typewritten the info in your ID (through an ancient typewriter) attached all the ID’s and sign. He’ll make you review the typed info in the ID’s, get your thumb mark, laminate the ID and voila!

8. Your ID’s done. Hot and smokey.

You need to pay 320 pesos for the Postal ID, three long years valid.

P.S.
It took me less than an hour to get the ID at the post office. Though the requirements are quite many, the officers aren’t hard to get in getting their signatures.

In my friend’s cases, in Bacoor and Dasmarinas Cvaite, it took them two days to get their ID’s. However, the signatories of the application forms were handled and prepared by the postal office admins or whoever.

Less Should, More Champagne

Truth and Cake

The first day of 2013 dawned beautiful, sunny and cold. Heading downstairs, I ran into a neighbour dressed in shorts and a T-shirt, carrying a thick paperback novel. “That’s strange,” I thought. “It’s a bit chilly to sit outside and read.”
 
We made small talk and, as he stepped out of the elevator waving his book, he chirped, “First day of the year. Headed to the gym. Took me all morning to get down here, but I’m going!”
 
Ahh, New Year’s Resolutions. The kind of optimistic insanity that makes a person saunter down to the gym in their street clothes. With a book in hand.
 
I’ve created my own list of resolutions every year since I was a pre-teen, filling pages of my journal with detailed assessments of the past year and lists of goals for the coming months. I’ve even made charts (dork alert).
 
But…
