Lists of Valid ID in the Philippines You Can Present When Doing Transactions

VALID ID PHILIPPINES – Here are the lists of primary IDs and secondary IDs and documents accepted in the country.

Most official and written transactions in the Philippines require IDs and documents that prove the identity of the person. This happens in applying for a loan, booking a ticket, enrolling in a class, running for a position, etc. Thus, it is important to have valid IDs that you can present in making transactions.

With regards to these IDs and documents that prove the identity of a person, there are those that are considered primary and secondary. Usually, the latter is an alternative asked by entities if the person has no primary ID and companies would usually seek at least two (2) secondary IDs. You can check on the lists below.
