PRC forms for renewal of PRC ID License for all OFW and Migrant Filipino professionals abroad

Posted by on Friday, May 9, 2008, 16:15
This item was posted in Advocacy and has 197 Comments so far.

Two weeks ago I was given the task by my sister to contact the PRC here in our province to renew her and her hubby’s License. So I phoned the PRC office and a staff there told me the details. She even told me to go online at the PRC official site to download the online form. But before she ended the conversation, an intriguing instruction caught my attention “Sir if you cannot download the form, just drop by here in our office and you can scan the form and send it you your sister”. Indeed I smell something was going on with her instruction so I went online ASAP and yes she was right, the infamous PRC official website is nowhere to be found. I tried googling the site, actually I have no idea if the site is on renovation or did they just vanished magically from the cyberspace. When my CIA and NBI skills paid off and found the site (It has an extra domain suffix at the end intended for site test), the link for the online form was incompetent like some of the PRC staff in Manila. The link was useless and you can’t even download the darn forms.

In dismay and utter disappointment for the incompetence of one of the most busiest (o busy-busihan) government branches of the Philippines, I went to the PRC office LIVE! I got this pink form which thanks be to God is not scented. I once again googled for answers and to my surprise in many of the nursing forums that I stumbled upon, there is one shout that echoes the cyberspace: PRC is Incompetent. An array of comments and clamor towards the service and their personnel bombarded the Philippine Regulations Commission. Some of the comments were atrocious (who can blame them?) and some are stories worth reading. So as a public service I decided to upload the forms of the PRC not only for my sister but for the whole migrant professionals who are having a hard time renewing their respective licenses. So below is the instruction on how to fill up, download and submit the requirements for your License renewal.

Prepare the following:

1. two pieces of your latest passport size photos of the renewee in white background and with name tag (full name) on the picture.

2. two xerox/photo copies of your recent PRC ID/ License front and back

3. Authorization letters for your representative in the PRC. Just to make sure, provide one authorization letter for application of renewal of license and one authorization letter for the actual redemption of your license. So that makes two. If your representative (the person who will apply for you) is not a professional licensed by the PRC meaning they have no license such as (a student, a blue collar worker, a military personnel, a casual employee in a government office etc) , a power of attorney is needed.

4. A renewal fee of P650 to P780. The fee depends on the months or years of lapse of validity of your license.

5. Special Mention: If you are going to take the NCLEX or similar examinations and your license is still in the process of renewal, make another two authorization letter, but this time for application of certification and redemption of certificate. The certification will prove that your license is being renewed. Fee ranges from P96 to P200. It is advised that two to three months prior to the expiration of your license, you should apply immediately so that you can avoid delays and penalty.

6. Download the PRC Form Here then fill out the form. The file is in Microsoft Word document because not all professionals are literate in adobe PDF files. Print the form then at the back of it, print the second page of the form. Then cut it into its original form size. PRC will not accept forms that are not within their size limit. That’s how OC they are there.

7. Mail via courier your filled up form (attached with the said requirements above) to your representative. It is best to send the documents via courier because postal services here in the Philippines are soooooooooo unreliable and soooooooooooooooooo slow!

8. Then wait for two months before your new ID is released. Yes two months… I know, don’t get me started on that.


For those who lost their Licenses (PRC ID) and wanted to renew them, please look for an old license or a back to back xerox copy of your old PRC license because they will require them from you. I askjed the rationale behind, they said that it will be easier for them to locate or validate your old license with the use of your old PRC ID. That is why do not throw your old IDs and Licenses because they will require them from you if you ever lost your recent ID.


The process is the same as the renewal of lost PRC License except that you have to indicate in the form the specific application you want and provide an affidavit of loss. Please also attach authorization letters to every transaction that your representative will do in the PRC office in your behalf. Proper requirements and documentation will lessen the delays and hassles to the already bombarded and incompetent PRC offices.


If your PRC ID/License was destroyed, mutilated or was soaked in a sulfuric acid (I’m exaggerating), please include the destroyed card in the requirements to be submitted. PRC staff are too paranoid and skeptic in believing that you will go through all the trouble of applying for another ID just to to bluff.

Below is a detailed run-through in filling up the form:

1. Make sure to check or tick the box on the upper left hand corner of the form. Specify if your license is for renewal, duplication, reprinting or change of name.

2. Attach on the upper right hand corner of the form, one of your passport size photo with name tag. The other copy of your photo is for the PRC staff use.

3. Fill up the form legibly with your name, mailing address and pertinent details of your License. Do not forget to sign the form with your signature on the space provided.

4. Do not fill in the boxes highlighted below. The PRC staff will be the one to fill those blanks.

5. Wait for the PRC staff to give you your claim stub. That stub bears the date when you can redeem your license. Tell also your representative to not lose this stub because PRC staff will not release your license if this stub is lost. When redeeming the license, tell your representative to attach the stub to your Authorization letter because they will ask for it upon redemption of your license.

6. At the back of your form, do not forget to sign it with your signature. Submit this fully filled up form with your photos, xerox copies of your license and other requirements mentioned above depending on the kind of application you are targeting.

If you have further questions, request or any suggestions to help Nurses and professionals renew their licenses without going into trouble of looking for answers on the web, just feel free to leave a message below leaving your true email address on the comments form so that I can personally contact you with your inquiry.

    Ayan na nga ba! dapat may karatula yung website nila na “This is where your taxes go!” para naman mahiya sila sa mga balat nila. Sa buong panahon na iginugol ko sa pag-aasikaso ng aking mga papeles eh hindi ako nakaranas ng kaginhawahan sa bawat ahensiya ng pamahalaan. Grrr!

    Hi, this is very useful information. I also cannot access the PRC website, how did you do it? Would you know where I can get the renewal form for the Manila PRC office? Thanks.

  4. 30 May, 2008, 6:44

    hello glenni. You can use the form above for manila offices. It doesn’t matter if the form says its from lucena office because they have the same format. they only differ in color. if you want print it in black and white then put a liquid paper on the word “LUCENA” on the claim stub so that when you submit the form and the PRC people tears it, they won’t ask you to go to LUCENA when you claim your ID. Pag naman sila nagreklamo pa dahil lang sa technicality ng form, ewan ko na.

    Or kung dito ka lang naman sa region4 (Calabarzon area), dito ka na sa Lucena mag-apply kasi di hamak na mas komportable kesa sa manila.

  5. 30 May, 2008, 6:47

    just download the form from the link I gave above. Hope you can renew you License.

    I found this very useful site when I googled “PRC Renewal Requirements”. The PRC official website is FOREVER inaccessible!

    Comment: I think the PRC Manila requires that the official photo be taken in one of the “authorized” (read as: may kotong?) photo booths inside the PRC complex. I think they want the logo of the PRC to appear in the picture.

    R. :)

  9. 11 June, 2008, 14:17

    Hello Ricky.

    I don’t know about that since they only allow photo be taken in their office when filing for a licensure exam and ID. I think PRC as a whole will not impose that because some of the professionals are not in the country. It would be very impractical for them to impose such profiteering. You can just pass a passport size photo with your name tag on it wherever it is taken as long as it is recent and has a white background for attachment on the renewal of license form.

    and you are right. The PRC website is so impotent that’s why I cam up with this public service.

    Hi again! I just went to the PRC office today to have my ID renewed. Guess what? They didn’t honor the form I downloaded from your site. They have a “new” green form. In your detailed run-through #1, there is no longer a choice of “renewal”; it has been replaced with “Original ID”. Other than that, the “new” form is no different from the one you posted in this site.

    And by the way, the run-through #4 is NO longer true. They asked me to fill up all the blank spaces except the last two blanks (date when to claim and the window where to claim the ID).

    Any yes, they have an additional “form” to fill-up (1/4 bond paper stamped with some data you need to provide), with essentially the same data in the application form, but this one with a choice of “renewal”.

    Maybe next time, I will try the “PRC EXPRESS ID RENEWAL” service of LBC. Just call 02-8544848. It a door-to-door service. It will save me all the time lining up in PRC.

    Only in the PILApinas!

  14. 13 June, 2008, 6:55

    Hello Ricky

    Of course they won’t honor your form becuase uou are not renewing the license with a representative. Sa tagalog wala ka naman sa abroad. andito ka sa pinas. so ang punto ng PRC, andito ka na rin lang, gamitin mo na yung tamang form.



    Your LBC express padala feature is not even functional on the PRC website. Swerte ka nakapunta ka sa PRC Office, may LBC express padala ka, pano na yung iba na nasa abroad?

    hinanap ko nga thru google ang official web site ng PRC pero sabi… under construction daw. napansin ko lng, ilang months na yang ganyan eh…
    salamat nman at nakita ko site mo. many thanks for posting this one. when i renewed my license before (nung nasa pinas pa ako), ang maremember ko is may kanya kanyang kulay yata yong form sa ibat ibang profession ang i understand that this form that is available is for the registered nurse kasi nurse yong kapatid mo. anyway, the procedures that you have posted here ay malaking bagay na to sa akin. maraming salamat sa yo…

    GOD bless

  16. 18 June, 2008, 17:37

    hello marrisa

    nagtanong ako sa PRC about the multi-colored form for different professions pero sabi nila iisa na daw. kasi yun din alam ko nung nagrenew ako ng license. anyhow, maraming nagtatanong tungkol sa technicality ng form and i am always saying to them that PRC would not mind about the color or label of the forms (like the one above which is LUCENA) because you are from abroad. you can print the form in black and white if you want or put a liquid paper on the LUCENA label of the form because iisa naman daw ang format. as you can see wala naman naka specify kung pang nurse yung form. ang mahalaga ay yung format.

    Can anybody tell me how much is the renewal of prc id for nurses na hindi pa expire? Para lang more or less how much will I bring. And is it true na merong express id, wherein I will be there morning pa lang and in the afternoon kuha ko na ung id but definitely mas mahal un? do you know also how much is that service?
    Thank you for the help..

  22. 19 July, 2008, 20:19

    i passed the nle last given last dec. 2007. when can i get my prc card?

  23. 2 August, 2008, 18:10

    I will badet. Thnaks for the visit

  24. 2 August, 2008, 18:10

    Photocopy will do.

  25. 2 August, 2008, 18:11

    Hello Kaecie.

    Try downloading it from other PCs. Its hard to convert an ms word doc to PDF file.

  26. 2 August, 2008, 18:13

    I think I have written the answer above. Pakibasa na lang kapatid uli sa taas. baka naoverlook mo yung amount. Regarding sa express, its supposed to be double the price plus the shipping and handling costs

  27. 2 August, 2008, 18:14

    ang tagal na.. dapat after pa lang ng oath taking nyo eh nakuha mo na. You should follow it up o the PRC office where you registered for the exam

    hello, thanks for this info it’s very useful and saves me a lot of time.
    i want to know what you mean by having the name tag on the picture… do i write it on the pic with a pen, or have the name tag taken with the frontal face view? thanks again.


  31. 20 August, 2008, 8:42

    hello liz :smile:

    name tag as in you are holding a cardboard with your full name in it as you are photographed. Much like a mugshot. Digital nametags such as edited in adobe photoshop are not allowed (as far as I can remember)… you have to hold your name in the photograph or someone else hold it for you.

    20 August, 2008, 9:07

    thanks so much :)
    am preparing my forms to send to my loving kuya back home who will be taking a day off from work just to take care of my license renewal. can you give a time frame this can all get done? i would hate for him to be there all day. wawa naman kuya!
    mabuhay to the brothers / sisters like you who take the time to do this for us abroad. such an act of love. :)

  33. 20 August, 2008, 9:25

    okay just one reminder, I received a note that some are worried that the pink form may not be entertained in the Manila PRC (not confirmed but that is their fear), to be sure:

    1. put a liquid paper on the word “PRC-LUCENA” on the form.

    2, Print it as a balck and white and not colored to obscure the color code

    3, and tell your kuya to argue with the stubborn PRC people there to accept the form since their stupid website is useless and is offline.

    4. that you are from abroad and there is no way for you to get the form but through download on the internet

    5. and that tell your brother to be equally aggressive and resonant because these PRC people sometimes bully customers when they are kind. I should know because I have been there in the Manila PRC. Hindi uso ang bait sa PRC.

    Time frame, if all your documents are properly signed, properly copied (xerox) and properly represented as what I have enumerated above, there would be no hassle. He could finish it half a day depending on the queue of people. The best day to come to PRC is on Monday and tuesday since that is the day which has the lowest number of people in line..

    double check your forms and requirements before sending them to your brother. we dont want the PRC to tell him to get back just because you lack a requirement of a signature on your form. Plus don’t forget the authorization letters that are described above.

    after that your brother will be asked to comeback after 2-3 months to fetch your ID. He will receive a claim stub for the redemption of your id. If your license is needed their in abroad, ask your brother to file a certificate telling that your license is still under process for renewal. every transaction you make on the PRC should be backed up with your authorization, including applying and redemption of license.

    Goodluck and feel free to leave a message here if you have a question. I will do the best I can to update this post if there are developments in the PRC.

    Don’t believe in hearsay. Because I have been there in the PRC personally and applied for the license renewal of my sister, my brother in law and my own license so I know these things.

    Pax et Bonum

    how long will it take for me to renew my expired prc id? i am a nurse currently working here in UK but i applied in australia. they want my papers ASAP so i want to know how long will it takes for PRC ID renewal since they asked me for a time frame to submit all te requirements. many thanks, cheers!

  37. 27 August, 2008, 18:36

    hello ella :smile:

    The license (ID) will be released after 2 months, but PRC can give you a certification to prove that you’re License is in the process of renewal. Kindly send a authorization (requesting and redeeming the certificate = bale 2 authorizations) to your representative so that after he finished renewing your license and getting the stub, he can apply for a certificate which can be released within a day or three depending on the PRC staff. Certificate of Renewal can be submitted to foreign agencies as a proof that you already renewed your license and that your new ID is still in the process of being made.

    Hope this helps.


    PS. always remember that every transaction you make, either applying for a renewal or redeeming your license, there should always be an authorization coming from you since you are represented by someone.

    Thanks for this very informative and helpful website of yours. I was happy to find your site coz for long time I looked for PRC website and recently I found their website, wrote to them but failed to send.

    I’ve away for 8 years and my license has been expired and I wanted to renew it. Do you think they will accept it?

    I saw this link on where it has the PRC form written Manila. What do you think of this?

    Hope to hear from! Thanks a lot!

  39. 9 September, 2008, 20:29

    Hello Jennifer, welcome to my blog. Feel free to roam around here.

    Anyhow about your questions:

    1) yes they will accept it but with a penalty (pesos) i think. Just don’t know how much.

    2) The link that you gave me is a form for application of PRC ID and not renewal. In this case, they will not accept it. Better download the form above because it doesnt matter if its from manila or from elsewhere. They only differ in color and label but are the same for every province.

    I moved your comment here from my other post since this is the proper forum for the license renewal queries. If you have questions feel free to post your comments in this post.

    Pax et Bonum

    That was a very quick reply. I wish our PRC was as quick as you are. You mentioned above about the LBC call center for renewing license not functional in the PRC website. How true is this that LBC can assist those who are abroad and can’t send their representatives to transact with PRC personally?

    Thanks brother!

    O isa ka pa miss. Alam nyo no offense, pero pinahihirapan nyo ang sarili nyo. Ayan na ang sagot sa taas, babasahin nyo na lang po. Tutuklawin na kayo ng sagot. Minsan ho nakakatamad mag respond sa mga tanong at inquiries na walang common-sense. :evil:

    If there is a website which nurses can renew their license, heck I don’t think I would kill myself in doing this entry in the first place just to help those who are in abroad.

    hellow mr bluepanjeet! i renewed my prc id last april 2008, and til now i did received any letter informing me that my id is ready for pick up. i renewed my id in tacloban city. i hope you can take some of your time to answer my concern. thank you so much:neutral:

  49. 18 September, 2008, 19:32

    Hello An. Nice that you dropped by.

    I assume you mean, you “did not” receive any notice from the PRC Tacloban right?

    Actually they will not email you or send you a mail just to inform you that your license is ready since they are so busy in their work.

    You are supposed to receive a stub from them which you will use to redeem your PRC ID/license. In the stub is the date and month of the release of your ID. Usually it only takes two months. So check your stub and see if there is any date in it. Pag wala try to call the PRC tacloban kung malayo ka sa kanila, just asked them if the PRC ID renewed last april is already released.

    My friend IFM’s license is also delayed for almost 8 months now. He applied in Iloilo. I guess sakit na yan ng mga provincial offices na delay magrelease ng license. I follow up mo kapatid. thats the only solution I can think of. Kasi they are expecting na kayo mismo ang magfofollow-up at hindi sila.

    If you still have questions, just leave it here okay.

    Godbless and goodluck

  50. 18 September, 2008, 19:36

    yes they can, Just tell your representative to avail the express padala if you are in abroad. The Prc website is down. I dont know what happened. so the Express padala in their website in non functional as of this writing.

    I am beginning to process my NCLEC exam, 1 of their requirements is authorization for validation of registration/license, but unfortunately my PRC license was already expired last May 2008 & i am here in Saudi Arabia.So,do i really need to renew it before sending my documents to CGFNS office? I know CGFNS will inquire in the PRC about the status of my license….tnx

  56. 10 December, 2008, 19:24

    Yep you need to

  57. 10 December, 2008, 19:25



  58. 10 December, 2008, 19:28

    Yes you can. You are actually licensed already. the mere fact that you passed the exam means that you are already licensed. The ID is another thing. Its just a representation of yourlicense which is a valid document wherever you go. You need to get it now. Just tell them your situation and they will give you the proper form for new licensees

    panjeet thanks so much po sa reply sa message ko, masyado kasi akong nag-aalala kasi di ko talaga maasikaso kasi nandito ako sa thailand, pero plan ko uwi ng pinas sa 2009 kaya lang may mga naririnig ako na invalid na raw yong pagkapasa ko noong 2004 dahil matagal na, kaya ang tanong ko is may validity ba talaga ng pagkapasa sa exam na dapat sa ganitong duration ay makakuha ka ng license ID or else mawawalang bisa pagkapasa mo. thanks po

  60. 11 December, 2008, 10:14

    naku wag ka basta maniniwala sa sabi sabi. alam mo naman ang pinoy napakahilig sa mga ganyan.

    ganito kasi yun. Kaya ka kumuha ng exam is because you want to have a license. You already passed the exam therefore you are already licensed. NGayon di mo kinuha ang license id mo diba? Hindi ka nag oath taking? Pero pasado ka ng exam at pinaskil sa dyaryo?

    ang logic dun, hindi naman siguro nila tatangalin ang pagiging lisensyado mo just because you did not applied for a license ID or took the oath taking. those two are only optional.

    Ang mahalaga dun nakapasa ka sa exam at nakalista ka sa prc.

    ang problema lang nito ay dapat alam mo yung date, year at location kung san ka nag exam, di ko sure kung kjasama pati yung mga documents mo noon ng prc na nagtake ka para mapatunayan na ikaw nga yung nakapasa.

    meron minemail sa atin ang prc na certificate of passing kung saan nakasulat doon ang mga exam sets at rating natin after we passed the exam diba. kaya tayo may dala na envelope na may stamp na. YUn ang isa pwede mo dalhin sa prc na pruweba na pasado ka para makapag apply ng id.

    pero better to go to the prc directly and check their policies. Bago na kasi ang prc commissioner (thanks God di na si Rosero) so ibig sabihin pwedeng bago na rin ang policies nila.

    pero yung fear mo is very unlikely. Just because you did not follow up your id or you did not attend the oath taking eh irerevoke na nila license mo? You are licensed but you are not presently licensed to practice your degree its because nga na di mo nirenew or di mo finollow uop license mo.

    magulo ba? haha

    hope this helps

    Thanks a lot for the great information.
    You are so kind to share your time and talents.

    I take it that the above nsg license renewal form will apply even in Davao City?

    May I know what are the requirements for change of name? (I just got married).

    Thanks a lot again.

    God and the Blessed Mother bless you always.
    PS. I tried calling my family back home but I could not get through for whatever reasons and time is running out.

    hi, GOOD DAY 2u Sir..i just wanna know the requirements for change of name. My teacher’s license will expire this october 2009. Somebody told me na of course one of the requirments 2 change name is marriage certificate from NSO. Kaso lang po, d po aq kasal sa Plipinas. I got married here in USA. So, d q po alam if they’ll accept marriage contract kahit d galing sa NSO. Please advise me.. THANK YOU PO! MORE POWER! :) :smile:


  68. 1 February, 2009, 0:46

    Hello Jamaica, kumusta si Aruba at Costa Rica? hehe joke lang.

    Basta authenticated kapatid ang Marriage Certificate mo diyan ng kung ano authorized agency to authenticate tatangapin ng PRC yun. Dito lang sa Pinas mahigpit ang requirements at kailangn lahat authenticated dahil nga laganap na ang peke na papeles. Diyan sa tate mahirap mameke ng papers so automatic tatangapin nila yun.

    God Bless

    Hi, i would like to ask, how much is the so called “FAST PROCESS” and how long long long is the process for this FAST Processing??? i have read that the normal processing is about 2 to 3 months.. then maybe fast process is about how?? maybe 59 days?? or 50 days?? hehehhe, bakit pa tinawag na fast un?? nyahahaha.. Please advice :-D

    Hi, it’s a good thing that I came across your site.. Very useful indeed! The thing is ever since I got my first ID card I never bothered to have it re-newed because I wasn’t practicing it anyway and was living abroad for sometime. Probably that’s why I’m so out-of-date! Whatever happened to the requirement for Nurses that they should complete some credits before they would be able to apply for a renewal of their I.D? Well, if the policy has changed and if I only need to pay for the years it was expired… wow, nice!..I’ll definitely do it if that’s the case!

    Hi! I just want to thank you for creating this site for OFWs and migrants who have questions regarding PRC license renewal and etc. I moved here in the US 12 yrs ago and never re-newed my PRC nurse license thinking that I’ll never need it. I worked as an LPN and now I am trying to challenge the NCLEX-RN so I need to have my PRC license re-newed and also I want my last name change in my PRC license since I got married when I got here. I downloaded and printed the forms above and will send it to my brother back home who will work it out for me. I just don’t know how much I have to pay as penalty for failing to re-new my license for several years. Anyways, thanks a million again and more power and God bless….

    Hi there. This site is nice hope my inzans and other relatives and even my friends whom I know license will expire this year could read this site… It’s very useful… And for those professional here in the Philippines who want to renew their license, why don’t you try to drop by in the PRC so you can experience personally what the others are telling about, and I guarantee, your experience will count once in your lifetime… or you can even told to your future sons and daughters or even nephews or nieces that you experience that process or even being in that shoes before. Even there is LBC express right now, and having a very toxic schedule… I can say money can’t buy experience… my best teacher.

    Have a nice day folks…

    Hi, thanks for this. It is certainly a big help. Madami akong info na nakuha dito kesa sa useless PRC website. I am living in Texas right now and undergoing the same dilemma. I was a teacher back in the Philippines but I met my husband and moved here in 2006. I am hoping to get all of my stuffs together so I can get a Texas teaching certification (bale lisensya to kung sa pinas pa) and be able to teach full time next year. I am trying to get all my papers/documents ready for (1) renewal of my PRC id which expired last year…nagparenew kase ako right before I left…(2) changing my last name to my now married name…we got married here kase… and (3) request for a letter saying that my license has not been revoked or anything and that its in good standing…dont know what you call it, i guess its a letter of good standing…

    Anyhow, i asked my sisters to help me, the PRC people (most if not all of them) were as usual masungit….and I even phoned Manila office…It was a freaking long distance call and I got nothing. The people that I talked to didn’t help much, telling me that their freaking supervisor was out, and made me wait while they pass me around. It was sooo aggravating to say the least. Oh well….I’m sorry if I’m venting out….kakainis lang talaga. But hank God for people like you who care enough to provide very important information. God bless you and your family.

I almost forgot….gaano nga pala kalaki yung passport size photo in inches? at ilan ang kailangan ko ipadala? kase parang di pareho yung passport size photo nila dito sa Texas/US kesa jan sa pinas…di magkasinlaki. I just wanna be sure before I send my requirements to my family. Thanks sa uulitin. Mabuhay ka.

    eto din ang nakakainis.. i requested a verification of registration to send to CRNBC here in Canada nung last wk ng July pa till now wala pa naresib ang CRNBC, nakaresib n tuloy ako ng letter from CRNBC telling me na to continue assessing my papers kelangan nila ung form na manggagaling sa PRC …. haaayyyzz nkakalowkah nakakabadtrip tlg. i even asked my dyowa in Pinas to follow up and sbi daw npadala n nung Aug 24 but then accdg to the letter i got from CRNBC, un n lng ang inaantay nilang document haaayyyzz.. and now expired n license ko nung Oct. 26 wahhhhhh and this is my problem.. I have to renew kc kelangan registered nurse while CRNBC will continue to assess my papers and this is nkakainis kc renewing will take long again for PRC to process tapos idagdag mo pa ung days again for them to send-in a new verification to CRNBC..another payment as usual..

    It makes me wander kng pwede ipaexpedite lahat sa PRC for an additional fee? meron b nun? or under the table =)

    Another question, panu ung phil. passport size photo with name tag required sa PRC.. may hawak b dapat ako na maliit na “karatula” =) with my name already written or pwede ung name ko typewritten sa may space below the passpot size picture? can’t remember na my picture during the initial registration in the Phil. kelangan ko iexplain sa photographer dito kc nagkamali n ako kahapon sa background tapos may blank space lng sa bottom ng picture to write my name into.. i need have my picture taken again haaayyyzzzz

    just want to know the period covered by nursing license granted in 2009. is the license renewed every year? i agree with a lot of people that prc website is either non-existent or useless.


  106. 10 December, 2009, 11:35

    Hello dalmacio,

    your license is renewed every 6 years on your date of birth. So let say you received your license on July 2009 and your birthday is on April 15, then the expiry of your license will be on April 15, 2015 (6 years counting from the year of your license relased up to you birthday) depending if you have no violations against your professions’ licensure policy.

    To avoid delay of license renewal, you can renew your license 3 months ahead of your expiry date. if for example, your license will expire on April 2010, therefore you can already apply for renewal in the PRC as early as January of 2010. Hope this helps

    I just had a PRC ID renewal and change of name/status (teacher) today. It cost me P1775 where my last ID renewal was dated 2004. I can’t have ID EXPRESS coz of the change of status so I have to wait for 3 months but i asked for a certification of good standing at window 19 (3rd flr annex bldg) that cost me P75 and will get the certificate after 5 working days ( for those who need the prove of renewal ASAP – i guess the certificate is needed). I started working on my papers at around 9am finished it by 11:30am….. then i came back for the certificate at 3 pm and took me 30 minutes only. ALL IS WELL!!!! the staff of PRC are somewhat polite and courteous only if you show them how to be one. Good day and GOD bless… have a nice trip to PRC! :-P

    I agree with you bluepanjeet, I also experienced not only once but maaaaaaaaaaaaaaany times, the incompetency of PRC, and I got surprised when i saw your attached forms, in which it was from PRC Lucena, the same PRC office where I run to, when I am in need of such important documents with regards to my licensure. And eto pa, I’ll be honest but nakakainis talaga yung ilang masusungit na empleyado ng ating gobyerno, talagang ikaw na lamang ang bahalang magpasensiya sa kanila. Sighed…

    hi, im a migrant professional dentist living in nz. iam currently in manila and wanting to renew my prc id. expiry is still 2011 but i want to renew it while im here on a holiday. is it possible? or would you recommend the lbc -id renewal procedure? cheers!

  126. 13 August, 2010, 10:48

    Hi Tina. It depends. PRC only allows advance license renewal 3-6 months before the expiry date. For example, if your license will expire on June 2011, then you can already apply for renewal starting December of 2010.

    You are here in the Phil right? so it would be better for you to apply the renewal personaly and then ask them if they can send the license in NZ. if tou think its too risky losing the license on the courrier, mail etc), just ask your family member to get it for you after 2 to 3 months of your application and then let them send it to you. That way it would be much safer.

    Hope this helps

    Hi! I would like to know if it is possible to have license verification to prc without renewing the license . This will be needed for my endorsement of license from Cali to Texas. Expired n kasi ang prc ko. But I need to have it verified by BON ng Texas, thank u po!

  128. 19 August, 2010, 18:43

    How can you verify a license if it is non-existent ( or already expired)? Renew first your license before asking prc to verify it. They cannot verify what they do not have on record. even if you have a previous license, still it is considered non-existent if it is not renewed..

  130. 20 September, 2010, 8:03

    There is a download link above where you can get the form. The form is already scanned. If you print it and scanned it again, the quality of the print would not be good. I doubt it if PRC would ever accept it. What I can suggest is that you print it out and then send it by regular mail to your brother’s residence or you can just ask him to get the PRC form directly in the PRC office. Good Luck

    hi po…i have a very big problem…i took and passed the nle last 2005..but until now, i wasnt able to apply for i.d yet….can i still grt one?how?..pls help…huhuhuu

  133. 21 September, 2010, 8:15

    @Candy – The answer is yes. You have to go to the PRC personally and ask them to open your records of your exam results. If your records exist in PRC then you will be granted LICENSE (not ID). In order to get a license, you need to apply just like everybody else. The only difference between renewal and application of new license is the form you have to fill up and the window you have to fall in line. All instructions are already written above so please read!

    I am currently working abroad. For the renewal of my PRC ID, If I will be needing a special power of attorney, does it need my signature? or my representative can go about it in the Philippines? What does my representative need to have to acquire special power of attorney to renew and redeem thereafter my PRC ID? Thanks a lot. MORE POWER.

    panu ba makakuha nang special power of atty.? pwede bah send q nalang yung authorization letter q sa authorize person? hay naku!!!please help me!!!

  140. 14 October, 2010, 20:35


    Hello cheryl

    I don’t understand why you need a special power of attorney. handwritten Authorization with signature will suffice. Of course it depends on the PRC personnel. Pag napatapat ka sa may “period” nang araw na yon, malas mo. But in most cases special power of attorney is not necessary since you already have a claim stub given to you when you applied for your license

    Why having problems in claiming it? don’t you have the stub? send your stub to your family and let them claim it for you. If you do not have the stub then we have a problem. Ganun lang kasimple. Don’t complicate things

    Goodluck and I will pray that your license may be claimed in haste.

    God Bless

    This post is really helpful. Salamat Bluepanjeet!! I need to renew my Teacher’s license rin… Mag two years na ring expired. Naghahanap pako ng mapakiusapan na representative, hassle din kasi authorization letter pa at special power of attorney, tapos madalas mabagal pa service. Kung makakauwi ako this year, ako na kikilos. Sana merong branch ang PRC sa mga Pinoy Embassies worldwide noh? para dun nalang mag-renew ang mga Pinoy Proffesionals Abroad.

    Hi! My aunt is asking me to renew her PRC license on her behalf since she’s in Saudi. I was just wondering kasi sa form, it requires her signature but on the back portion of the form, there’s also a space to be filled by the representative. Sorry, this may sound like a stupid question (but I just wanna make sure kasi hassle tlg pumunta ng PRC) pag representative ba (ME) ako lang ang magsasign and I don’t have to send her the form and all that? I mean, kaya naman may space for me to sign kasi the owner of the license is not around to sign, dba? HAHA sorry tlg!! i will really appreciate an answer! thank you so much! super helpful ng post mo!

    Sa Manila PRC it takes about 6 weeks. Would you know if it will take the same time for provincial PRC? thanks!!

    To the one who made the step by step instruction, it is so nice of you! You are a public servant!

    To Romuald, YOU ARE SO PROUD :-| Don’t belittle TEACHERS, because without them… you cannot be an Engineer. Be humble enough to help those who cannot understand.. The reson why you made a post here is because you needed HELP too.

  167. 6 November, 2011, 7:16

    Dear Miss Anne,

    I bet you’re a teacher too :)

    Like I said, many FILIPINO READERS are not reading at all and are just browsing, too lazy to read. I bet you’re one of them.

    I’m the one who wrote this post, and NO, I didn’t write this because I needed help. I wrote this for clueless people like you. Sad thing is, all you have to do is read, yet most of you are even too lazy to read.

    And NO, I’m not proud. The issue here is how most LET Passers fail to ask valid questions and not my gratitude towards teachers.

    If you read again my comment above, I said “I’m not making a sweeping generalization”… It’s not my fault if you don’t know what I mean by it or you didn’t even bother reading that line.

    Finally, NO! I’m not an engineer.

    I am a bit confused on “name tag on the picture”. Does this mean, you write your full name on the picture (I assume the lower part of the picture), or the full name is within the picture, i.e. when the picture is taken, you are holding your name tag. Please let me know which is which. Thank you.

  195. 6 March, 2013, 13:15

    @Carley – this is just my opinion. I think you should wait your CGFNS first to be processed before you change status ng sa ganon walang masyadong confusion sa processing of papers. THis is just my opinion. Its up to you kung ano sapalagay mo ang mas madali

    hi po. i just ask my mom to renew my license in the phil( davao)it took 3 hours standing line thats before they get inside the building…. poor thing and send them along my original marriage contract kasi sa US kmi kinasal kampante ako na they will validate my marriage certificate( this paper once you photocopy lilitaw ang word na VOID so mahirap talaga i alter) but then again the mighty PRC denied it since dapat daw naka NSO STAMP or anything that has nso name on it. Pastilan gyud… another payment napud then i remember we went to Washington D.C to report my marriage to the embassy and sign by CONSULAR.. so i scan that and attach our passports…. hopefully it will work too…They told my mom that it would take easy 2 years for them to release my renewed I.D… I ARGUE mom about it that maybe she heard it wrong maybe its two months or six months I mean for christ sake they will make a diamond card for me right…. i dont even expect it in gold….. my god what a disaster this is… good thing i read your post and it says i could get a certification
    that my papers were on process maybe that would work for me.
