  1. The id is so expensive. It is added expense for those applicant that has less budget when the employer only needs the clearance. It should be optional, if someone have already govt. Issued valid id then there’s no need to take the id only the clearance.

  2. Is it okay to get police clearance without brgy clearance but have cedula? And also I have my old police clearance.

  3. Government Staff has air conditioned but We the citizens just outside filling in the form and it’s freaking hot! And act like a Boss! Amazing Philippines!

  4. This is not updated anymore.
    We were here just today and they told us to go to Camp Sotero.

    Hopefully this will help you from all the hassle that this unorganized government gave us.
    Prepare for the cedula AND brgy clearance not only one but BOTH.
