Only my observations but I thought this national ID was for Philippine nationals and not blow ins, time will tell as they craft the mistakes.

Cheers, Steve.

It looks to me more like a badly worded law as it only says under fees that it is free for citizens and is silent on fees for foreigners.

It just replaces cards like SSS, voter id, postal id, old age discount etc. none of which foreigners can have anyway.

But you need one if you have established a residence here for more than 180 days in the aggregate.

It's been a couple days now and I can get on this website the website doesn't load so what I'd like to is where would I get this card? I hope not Manila again, if so this card will end up cost me 11,000 pesos in transportation and card costs.

Not exactly true. I pay SSS and have had a Unified Multi Purpose ID for around 8 years.

Not trying to disagree with your comment Gary D; BUT foreigners can get and do get many of these ID Cards. I have both a Senior Citizen ID Card AND a PWD ID Card issued by the Philippine Government and BOTH offer me a discount on medication, food items at both restaurants and super markets and also discounts on any public transportation such as taxi's, buses or trains, etc. (sometimes even air fare discounts can be had)...and discounts at movie theaters, (when they were opened prior to COVID19).

PLUS...I have a Postal ID from PhilPost and have had for years...(I renew it every year).

So...a foreigner CAN have some or ALL of these government issued ID Cards.

I personally have 7 different current and valid Philippine Government issued ID Cards in my wallet right now today at this very moment:

TIN Card
PhilPost Postal ID
PhilHealth ID
Senior Citizen ID
PWD ID
Philippine Drivers License
PRA SRRV ID

PLUS two different Discount Booklets:

one booklet for prescription medication discounts...and
one booklet for food discounts at super markets

Discounts at restaurants, movie theaters and taxi's do not require a discount booklet and you need only show your ID Card for the available discounts!

I finally got the website to load and according to the information posted there, the cards will be available at many locations in each Province throughout the country...PLUS, I am sure they cannot require all of the financially challenged people, (who are being targeted first), to travel all the way to Manila...that would be impossible to accomplish...so there will have to be multiple issuance sites, (similar to an LTO Office)...
