The Philippine Statistics Authority said Friday it will start processing 9 million national identification cards by the end of the year in an effort to improve financial inclusion in the country.

In a virtual press conference, the PSA said registration will kicks off on October 12 and will start in 32 provinces with the lowest COVID-19 cases.

Nationwide registration rollout is scheduled in 2021, as it aims to give national IDs to 92 million Filipinos by 2022.

The agency said house to house operations where PSA teams would visit and interview household demographic data will be the first step, while the second step involves biometric collection at registration centers in their respective areas.

The PSA said a PhilSys number will be issued to registrants after undergoing the 2 steps.
