The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) is set to resume the registration for the Philippine Identification System (PhilSys) tomorrow, April 28, 2021, after a week-long halt due to the increasing cases of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in the country.
Designated registration hubs in the town including the Bungkaras Gymnasium (135 clients/day), Cotmon Early Childhood Care & Development Center (135 clients/day), and Iluluan covered court (90 clients/day) are scheduled to open its doors as early as 8 o’clock in the morning.
According to PSA, the registration hubs will only accommodate clients with scheduled appointments.
To ensure public health and safety before, during, and after the registration, LGU-Camalig reiterates the observance of COVID-19 prevention and control protocols such as, wearing of face masks and shields, observance of social/physical distancing, proper hand hygiene, and prohibition of clients with appointment but with a family member undergoing quarantine.
Last March 15, 2021, the PSA officially started the Step 2 registration for the PhilSys in Camalig, Albay.
Signed into law in August 2018, the provision of National IDs targets the real poor residents in the municipality, promoting convenient transactions through a single form of identification as compared to the tedious presentation of various IDs and requirements.
The PhilSys ID is a valid proof of identity for all residents devised to ensure faster and simpler access to public and private transactions, opening of bank accounts, enrollment in schools, and other relative services.
