The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA), represented by Office of Consular Affairs Asst. Secretary Neil Frank R. Ferrer and Philippine Postal Corporation (PHLPost), represented by Asst. Postmaster General for Marketing & Support Services Luis D. Carlos, signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) that will provide DFA access to the Postal ID Online Verification System (POVS).

The DFA will start accepting PHLPost’s Postal ID as a recognized ID for passport applications on 1 August 2019.

DFA will utilize POVS, a web-based application developed by PHLPost, to verify the authenticity of the Postal ID card presented by a cardholder. POVS is expected to address concerns on the integrity of the card being presented, issues concerning counterfeit cards and the manner of seamlessly verifying and authenticating Postal ID cards.

PHLPost expressed its appreciation to the DFA for including the PHLPost ID in the list of acceptable IDs for passport applications as well as its interest in utilizing POVS for verifying PhlPost IDs.
