How to change entries in National ID?
In case of change in or correction of any of the registered demographic data under the PhilSys, the registered person shall update their registration information in the manner as specified below.
Changing the name, sex, date of birth, place of birth or marital status:
Any change or correction of entries in the name, sex, date of birth, place of birth, or marital status shall be effected through the filing of the PhilSys Registration or Correction Form and the submission of the annotated PSA-issued Birth Certificate or Marriage Certificate, as the case may be.
Any person requesting change or correction in his or her name, sex, date of birth, place of birth, or marital status shall be required to submit to biometric authentication.
Changing the citizenship:
Change of entry in citizenship shall be effected through the filing of the PhilSys Registration or Correction Form and the submission of the appropriate support documents, subject to biometric authentication.
An authenticated registered person may request for change in the address, mobile number, or e-mail address through the filing of the PhilSys Registration or Correction Form at registration centers or at web-based portal that may be provided by the PSA. Authentication shall be carried out through the use of one time password and biometrics such as facial image scanning.
