Sign up na! Toby Tiangco announces start of biometric enrollment for nat’l ID in Navotas


The city government of Navotas has started the biometric enrollment of residents for the Philippine Identification System (PhilSys), Mayor Toby Tiangco said.

Some residents in Brgys. Bagumbayan South, Bangkulasi, North Bay Boulevard North (NBBN), San Roque, Sipac-Almacen, Tanza 2, and Tangos North and South have already completed the first step in the national ID registration.

Earlier, personnel from the Philippine Statistics Authority conducted house-to-house interviews in the said barangays for demographic data collection. However, it was cut short following the reimplementation of enhanced community quarantine in Metro Manila.

Residents who have completed Step 1 are now undergoing biometric enrollment. Only registrants who are done with the demographic data collection can proceed to Step 2 or the biometric enrollment.

“The national ID will give them not just proof of their identity, but will make it easier for Navoteños to avail of all social services and government benefits applicable to them,” Tiangco said.

In Step 2, the supporting documents of the registrant will be screened, his demographics will be encoded, his biometrics will be captured and recorded, and he will be issued a transaction slip.

Registrations are conducted simultaneously in four venues in the city including Navotas City Hall from May 31 to June 3; Brgy. NBBN Covered Court, June 1–August 10; Navotas City Library, June 3–December 30; and Brgy. Tanza 2 Multi-Purpose Hall, June 5–October 30.
