The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) achieved a new milestone by successfully registering over 60 million Filipinos for Step 2 Registration of the Philippine Identification System (PhilSys).

As of 16 March 2022, 60,483,095 Filipinos have been onboarded to the PhilSys Step 2 Registration, which involved capturing biometric information, such as fingerprints, iris, and front-facing photographs at registration centers.

“Despite the previous challenges posed by COVID-19 during the early implementation of the PhilSys program, the PSA achieved its targets successfully. We thank our partners and the millions of Filipinos for their cooperation despite the limitations brought about by the pandemic. With their continued support, the PSA is confident that we will be able to register more Filipinos in the next months,” PSA Undersecretary, Dennis S. Mapa.
