The old Postal ID card was very vulnerable and easy to copy, so PHILPOST has launched the new ID card system.
You can also use this new ID card when getting a passport as DFA approved it as one of the valid IDs, on banks, hospitals, ports and other offices.
This ID is valid for 3 years and is accepted anywhere.
After submitting the application, your ID card will release after 3 weeks and philpost will send to your mailing address.
And I'm waiting now for my postal ID card to release after 3 weeks :-).
If you want to give him witness voting decisions on your behalf, visit https://steemit.com/~witnesses again and type in "surpassinggoogle" in the second box as a proxy.
