If you're curious about the status of your Philippines (PhilID/PhilSys) National ID and its delivery, the Philippine Postal Office (PHLPost) has finally launched a National ID Tracker!

To do so, you must first ensure that you already have your Transaction Number after completing the necessary steps to obtain a National ID. The transaction number can be found on the transaction slip provided by the PhilSys registration center.

Said transaction number has a maximum length of thirty digits. You may check the photo below for the transaction slip sample:

Once you have your transaction number, go to the PHLPost website at and enter it into the tracker and click the "Track" button as shown below:

You will then be informed of the status of your Philippine National ID, whether it has been processed or not. If the National ID Tracker says "NOT FOUND," it means your ID is still being processed for delivery.

What is the National ID Tracker?

The National ID Tracker is the tool that is used to determine the current delivery status of the Philippine ID (PhilID), also known as PhilSys ID. The said identification card is a legitimate national identification document and a valid proof of identity in the Philippines. 

You can access the National ID Tracker through the following website address:

What is the Philippine National ID?

The Philippine National ID is a document issued by the Philippine Identification System (PhilSys). It is the primary means by which the government identifies both native-born Filipinos and foreign nationals who have made the Philippines their permanent home.

Features of the National ID include using the Philippine System Card Number (PCN) printed on it as an official form of identification when making transactions. Individuals can use the PCN even though they don't have their National ID with them as long as they remember it. 

According to a report by the Philippines Statistics Authority (PSA), the official delivery partner of PhilSys, PHLPost, has provided free delivery of over eight million National ID cards to Filipinos across the country as of March 2022. 

The agency then created the National ID Tracker for individuals who want to know the delivery status of their Philippine ID.

Why do we need to use the National ID Tracker?

Using the "National ID Tracker," individuals can determine the status of their Philippine National ID (PhilID).

Is the National ID will be delivered?

PHLPost will deliver the National ID as soon as it is available. The Philippine Identification System (PhilSys) is in charge of creating the national ID cards, which will be delivered to the registered address by PHLPost.

PHLPost may deliver it directly to the nearest barangay hall at your address, so check with them to see if your national ID has already been delivered.

How long should I wait for the National ID?

According to PSA Assistant Secretary Rosalinda Bautista, the door-to-door delivery of physical PhilID cards may take up to SIX MONTHS at the most from the time that you have completed the Step 2 registration process or the face-to-face biometrics capture. 


The "National ID Tracker" on the PHLPost website is a huge help for people who have already completed the steps required to obtain their National ID. They no longer need to be worried about when they will receive their ID; all they need to do is enter their transaction number and check the delivery status.
