How to Check Status of Philippine National ID Delivery Online

Filipino residents and resident aliens who have fulfilled all registration steps for your Philippine National ID can now monitor the status of your delivery on the Philippine Postal Corporation (PHLPost) website. Before you can track the status of the PhilID delivery, you need to complete PhilSys Step 1, Step 2, and Step 3 first.

The Philippine Identification System (PhilSys) issues the PhilID or National ID as a valid proof of identity. It acts as the government’s central identity system for all Filipino citizens and resident foreigners in the country. The physical ID has a Philippine System Card Number (PCN), which can be used as official proof of identity for transactions even if the card itself is not present.

This article will run you through the process of waiting and claiming your ID after finishing all of the registration steps.
