The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) through the PhilSys Registry Office (PRO) have received reports of individuals and groups offering and collecting fees via different social media platforms to book online appointments for Philippine Identification System (PhilSys) registration.
The PSA reiterates that registration to the PhilSys is FREE OF CHARGE from online appointment (Step 1 Registration), personal appearance for biometrics capture (Step 2 Registration), and delivery of the Philippine Identification (PhilID) Card (Step 3 Registration). Only PSA-PhilSys employees are allowed to handle official transactions on the PhilSys registration.
The public is encouraged to be vigilant against these scams and report via PhilSys hotline number 1388 any individual or group offering and collecting fees for PhilSys online registration.
To register online, log in to register.philsys.gov.ph and fill out all required fields.
For official information about the PhilSys registration, visit the official PhilSys website (www.psa.gov.ph/philsys) or Facebook page (www.facebook.com/PSAPhilSysOfficial/). You may also reach the PRO via the hotline number or e-mail at email@example.com.
