I have an Australian permanent residence visa saying it is valid upto 2013. I just want to be sure.

Saka, mabilis lang kaya ang processing ng biometric passport? I will only be staying upto the 3rd of January, alam naman natin na kapag December na, marami na ang naghoholiday or usually sarado government agencies.

Will appreciate any help and replies!
A visa is a totally separate entity from the passport. A visa is issued by the nation you're entering, while a passport states your nationality (proof that you're a citizen of such country). All you need is a valid passport to use with your permanent resident visa when you enter/re-enter Australia.

There shouldn't be a problem with exiting the Philippines with a new passport; the stamps on your old passport will not really affect your status upon exit. But it would be helpful if you hang on to your old passport (or colored copies of it) just in case something comes up. It's always good to have all your bases covered for any eventuality when traveling.

RP to benefit from smart card technology

The Philippines stands to gain from the benefits of contactless or “smart” card technology which is now being used by most banks in the world, a local card producer said over the weekend.

In a statement, Allcard Philipines said contactless smart card technology has been in existence for two decades now and has been proven reliable in other countries.

“The danger is the possibility of our (present) system not being recognized by other countries which are using contactless card technology,” said Allcard marketing manager Franz Reyes.

“Asia is modernizing. With Southeast Asia developing into a regional economy, how can we Filipinos transact in, say Taiwan, Japan, Singapore or even Thailand if we don’t have or don’t know how to use contactless smart card technology?” he added.

Allcard, the leading and fastest-growing card producer in the Philippines currently services nine of the top 10 banks in the Philippines. Allcard says the Philippines is now ready for such a system.

According to Reyes, contactless smart card technology enables the user to avail of the tremendous benefits of a fully interactive world. With just a swipe of the smart card, users instantaneously connect themselves to a system which allows them to do transactions. Users can also modify or add information stored in a smart card’s 32 kilobyte memory. Using a reader, the card can then be read by the system.

Credit card companies and banks first began using contactless smart card technology a decade ago. Reyes said the potentials of the technology are enormous that governments are beginning to use it to enhance and improve public services.

According to Reyes, the Kuwaiti government, for example, has issued three million electronic multi-application identification cards to its citizens as part of its efforts to comply with the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) regulation designed to allow citizens of all Gulf countries to travel between member states.

Reyes said the issued card serves as the official identification card of a Kuwaiti citizen. The smart card is embedded with a 32kb memory chip secured and encrypted with the card users’ information.

China, meanwhile, is on the verge of completing its $ 3.5 billion national identification smart card program. The program aims to provide 900 million smart cards to be used by Chinese citizens in their government transactions. Recently, China Expert Technology has received a $57-million order for e-government systems in Fuzhou City in Fujian province. China wants a contactless card security system.

Meanwhile, 96 percent of Taiwan’s citizens are enjoying the benefits of a healthcare program using smart card technology. With the implementation in 2005 of the technology, Taiwan’s National Health Care Program has saved close to $2.8 billion in health-related expenditures alone. Twenty two million Taiwanese now enjoy free medical services with just a swipe of their contactless smart cards, connecting them to 17,000 medical facilities throughout the island state.

Not yet I believe. They may end up doing it like how the U.S. does it now: ship applications to the Philippines, process them and then send back the finished product (biometric passport) back to the concerned diplomatic mission.

Hehehe, I wasn't being clear. If you apply for a renewal while outside the Philippines you will be issued the Green Passport instead of the new one with smart chip.

I got my e-passport today. Ok naman.

I think late next year pa ( tentative ) magsisimula ang e-passport applications ( and renewals ) in Australia. That's why I took the chance to renew my passport while staying here in Manila.

What happened to the national id system?

First, congrats to the government for implementing the machine readable and biometric passports. I think a few countries (US for sure) will be demanding biometric passports after a certain time.

As for the national id system, what happened to it? I think it's excellent to have one for the Philippines. Even if we only have our SIN in Canada, it links our information with a lot of major transactions with all levels of government, passport, taxes, banking, driver's license etc. It is used to cross check information that we are who we really say we are. That's the simplest use of the national id system. It doesn't have to be complicated.

For those naysayers, well, identity theft in the Philippines is already rampant whether in elections or property ownership, etc many things are forged, faked etc. But with a national identity system that can be used to cross check people's information it may lessen the possibilities. For the leftists, their funding comes primarily from EU sympathizers, where everyone is documented. Talk about big brother. If not, they can try living in communist capitalist haven called China. Even expats have to report to the police upon arrival. (My experience.)

kapag nanalo ang senate line-up ni Villar ay pwede na siguro close ang thread na to dahil siguradong wala ng pag-asa.

Even so-called "enemies of the state" can still avail of the National ID; they are, in fact, still Filipinos no matter what principles they stand and fight for.

yeah magandang idea ang National ID..dito sa SG malaking tulong yan (meron ID for citizens, permanent residents and even foreigners working in singapore)

take for example nung napapalit ako ng ATM ko kasi nasira..wala na kailangang papers or account number (wala akong dala kasi wala sa plano kong dumaan sa bank that time)..binigay ko lang ang ID ko and good enough na yun para i process ang request ko and after 15 minutes nakuha ko ang new ATM card ko
