MANILA, Philippines – Mahigit 50 milyong Pilipino ang nagbigay ng kanilang biometric information sa Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA).

Sa kasalukuyan, naabot na ng gobyerno ang national ID registration goal nito para sa 2021.

Sinabi ng PSA, “as of Dec. 11,” natapos ng 50.01 milyong Filipino ang second registration step para sa Philippine identification system (PhilSys), kabilang na ang pagkuha ng fingerprints, iris scans at front-facing photos.

“The PSA noted that despite the prolonged COVID-19 pandemic, step two of PhilSys registration started in January of this year in 32 provinces which had relatively low COVID-19 infections. “Despite the pandemic, the PSA was able to expand its operations to more cities and municipalities nationwide,” ayon sa PSA.

“The PSA salutes all those who contributed to this milestone for the PhilSys step two registration,” ayon kay National Statistician Dennis Mapa sabay sabing “Notwithstanding the pandemic and the restrictions that came with it, the PSA — together with its field offices, partner agencies, and key stakeholders — worked relentlessly to ensure that more Filipinos can begin registering for their PhilIDs.”

Kabilang sa unang three registration steps ay ang “collection of demographic information, which can be done through PhilSys’s online registration site. Following biometric collection, the third and final step were the door-to-door delivery of the Philippine identification (PhilID) cards.”

Sinabi ng PSA na “as of Dec. 10,” may 4.41 milyong PhilID cards ang nai-deliver na ng state-run Philippine Postal Corp. (PHLPost).

Ang Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) ang nagpo-produce ng PhilID cards.

“These cards will soon have a digital version through the soon-to-be-launched PhilSys mobile app. Registrants can already use this alternative while waiting for their actual PhilIDs,” ayon sa PSA. Kris Jose
