Here is How to Renew Your PRC License Online 2023

PRC Renewal is a process of renewing your expired PRC-issued ID card via Online at the Professional Regulations Commission’s website in 2023.

PRC implements this Online Renewal System on September 1, 2018, in all PRC regional branches and satellite offices including the One-Stop Service Centers for OFWs (OSSCO). This new system allows online application, online appointment, and online payment for the renewal of license ID cards.

As a professional registered under PRC, your ID has a validity of 3 years. You have to renew your license before it expires to continuously practice your profession.

You can access the PRC renewal facility twenty-four (24) hours a day, seven (7) days a week whether you are in the Philippines, or residing overseas as an OFW. You just need a laptop or desktop that has an internet connection and an installed web browser recommended by the commission. Depending on your chosen payment options, you might need an existing bank account that can transfer payment to any of the PRC-accredited payment facilities.

Aside from license renewal, PRC online services also allow aspiring professionals to process exam applications, initial registration of new board passers / successful examinees, verification of rating of exam passers, replacement of lost PRC ID cards, and license verification of registered professionals.

Choose which among the 4 options is the most convenient for you to pay PRC license renewal processing fee.

In my case, I opt for the UCPB Over-the-Counter payment as it is more convenient on my part since there is a branch near my location. Also, because I do not have an existing bank account with Landbank and UCPB. Though, UCPB charges a Php30 service fee.

      If I remember it correctly, they did not ask for my old PRC when I get the new one.

    thanks for this help.. especially those who are not tech in terms of online applications, anyway do we need to print all hard copies of reference # and can we go for early application like my schedule is at 4-5 PM, but I wan to pay it in my vacant early hours. thanks.

    • Matt

      As far as I know, you need to go to the PRC office based on your chosen schedule.

  • Macey

    Hi, did you received the PRC License on that same day? or they will schedule you again for the releasing? Thank you.

    • Matt

      Yes, I received it on the day I visited the PRC satellite office.

  • Annie

    Good day, just want to ask if I can go to the main office to renew my expired license?

    • Matt

      Hi Annie,

      Yes, you can do that but you need to have an appointment since PRC no longer accept walk-ins.

      • Henry Timan

        I am an ofw under balik manggagawa. For how many days now, I am trying to set an appointment through OSSCO POEA and Robinsons Ortigas, but it saya no slot all the time. Looks like this online setting of appointment is on a limited slots basis. There should be a walk-in option for balik manggagawa program. I sent an e-mail to PRC but no response so far. I have to leave in 3 weeks time.

        • Denise

          Hi. Thanks for the guide. I just have a question. My license expiration is late January and I set my appointment early January. Unfortunately, appointment slot is on March. Is that okay? Just kinda anxious walking around with an expired license til March and can’t do anything about it. Also, do you know other ways to contact PRC besides email? I really want to inquire directly but I’m in the province and has no prc branch near me. Email takes weeks sometimes to be noticed so I don’t trust I’ll get a response anytime soon. Thanks in advance. xo

        • Garner

          In my case I just show them my plane ticket then they process my ID ,on the same day i got it. But you have to show them your schedule slot even it is on few months a head. They are very considerable specialy to us OFW’s.

      • Exequiel Aquino Francisco

        Hi! I have a scheduled appointment at Rob Galleria on Dec. 18. My license expired in 2018. I will use my Master’s Degree which I completed in 2018 to comply to the CPD units required. I heard that you should set your renewal appointment in PICC because they need to authenticate your diploma/transcript. Is this true?

        • Matt

          Hi Sir,

          I do not know how to answer your question because I have not experienced going to PICC to authenticate any of my documents.

      • John christoper pacot

        Regarding prc id renewal po. In the part of personal information , what if your school does not appear in the choices given what should i do?

        • Matt

          Hi Sir John, I also do not know what to do sir. Let us wait for other commenters, maybe they also encounter the same thing.
          I think the best thing to do sir is to inquire directly to PRC.

  • Aileen

    Thank you for providing this detailed guidelines, very helpful.

    • Matt

      Hi Aileen, You’re welcome!

  • Aema

    Just registered online and input correct info details to renew my license.
    But when i tried to proceed to renewal of my license, im having record mismatched.
    Checked my PIC, all details are correct. Would you have any idea why?

    • Matt

      Hi Aema,

      You need to inquire directly to PRC. Sorry, I do not have an idea about it.

      • Carmela pacaro

        Hello.. Please help me with my problem.. I have already made an online prc id renewal in behalf of my friend.. I suppose to change the picture that i uploaded because it was not properly cropped.. But i cannot login to my acct because i forgot my password.what can i do?

    • Ivy Cendaña

      Aema, re your mismatched problem, try to call 3100017 or 3101027. I experienced the same. Hope it would help you too

      • Matt

        Thank you IVY!

  • RP

    Hi, I already did the online renewal but missed my appointment date. Do you have any idea what to do if the said appointment date has been missed? Do I have to set a new appointment date again?Thank you.

    • Matt

      You can try to reschedule it.

      • RP

        Thank you for your response. However, do you have any idea how to reschedule it thru online? It seems that there is no option when I tried it. I am an OFW kasi kaya I can only do online transaction. Thank you again.

        • Matt

          Hi RP,

          I suggest that you send an email to prc.helpdesk2 I am sorry but I can’t answer your question as I haven’t experienced that situation. I think there is an option to reschedule the appointment but it can be done prior to the appointment date and not after it.

          Please share here what they are going to suggest to you so other readers of this blog post can also know about it. Thank you in advance.

          • Lily

            Hello, My appointment is scheduled on September. Do i need to bring 2×2 photo with name tag? Because you mention that extra photo is optional.thank you.

          • Matt

            It’s your backup in case the photo you uploaded in your PRC account will be rejected by the PRC staff.

  • Leah L. Austria

    How to make an appointment in prc? im doing an online renewal but it says that i have 8 days left to renew my license? What do i need to do?thanks.

  • Larrah

    Good day. I would like to inquire regarding the priority lane for pregnant women. I am a pregnant woman, do i still have to set for appointment online or I can go directly to PRC office/ satellite office thru walk -in to process the renewal of my prc license? pls i hope to hear something back. thank you

    • Matt

      Hi Larrah,

      Based on what I’ve read, pregnant women, Senior Citizen, persons with disability (PWD), nursing mothers and senior citizens are allowed to use the courtesy lane.
      Here is my source

      But to be safe, I suggest that you call the PRC office where you will process your PRC renewal for verification purposes.

      • Larrah

        Ok thank you so much for the response

    • Jaymert


      Thanks for this helpful information. I just want to ask if the 15 CPD unit requirement is already implemented.

      Thank you.

      • Matt

        Hi Jaymert,

        I think March 1, 2019 is the implementation.

  • Edfel

    Once I have printed the form, do I have to notarize it since I do not have a cpd unit to be presented? Thanks

    • Matt

      As far as I know, you do not need to notarize forms for PRC.

  • Antonio Bullecer

    I suggest PRC should take into consideration renewal of licenses be done also by walk-in processing. There are so many license holders who are not computer savvy – they tend to forget usernames and passwords easily due to age. That is one. How about those licenses needed for businesses. Are we going to stop operation because of expired licenses of designated Staff? How about those leaving the country? Please think of it. The scheduled renewal of license for Filipino professionals still best done during his/her birthday every 3 years. Just like drivers’ license – which I observed very appropriate – the volume of applicants is very limited since no 100 to 300 persons celebrate the same birthday applying for renewal at a specific LTO office. Also, same with our respective Professional licenses, PRC has to devise flexibility and systematic approach to properly address this license renewal problem. Just my suggestion. Thanks.

    • Matt

      Thank you Antonio for sharing your insights.

  • Aly

    Hi, just double checking. I am actually applying for the examination and was having a hard time choosing among the payment methods as I do not have any bank account and was wary of using gcash/paymaya. Did I read it right that you can pay thru UCPB even without an account? Can you assist me on some procedures? Thanks alot!

    • Matt

      Yes, you can pay at UCPB. Probably the staff at UCPB can assist you with the process. I have included my actual payment slip though it is for renewal.

  • Giovanni Jude Mantua

    Hi thanks for the guide. I tried paying my renewal fee via Paymaya because I didn’t know any LDB or UPCB near our place and there is this 7/11 just outside our street which is more convenient for me. I just install paymaya in my phone. Note: your account needs to have money first before you can use it to pay your PRC fees. So just load up in the nearest 7/11 and you’re good to go.

    • Matt

      Hi Giovanni,

      Thank you for sharing your experience.

  • Albertson

    Hi Matt

    Do you have an idea what would be updated requirements for renewing PRC license of OFWs? Will PRC still require OFWs to submit certificate of good standing from professional org (e.g. IECEP) and the affidavit of undertaking?

    • Matt

      Hi Albertson,

      As far as I know, you only need to show proof that you are an OFW, you can renew your license. There is no need for any affidavit or good standing certificate.

      • Albertson

        Many thanks Matt!

      • Grace

        Good day!

        My license is expired and i lost it. What should i do? Do i need to apply renewal of id or replacement of id? What requirements do i need to prepare?

        • Matt

          Hi Grace, it’s ok even if you lost your ID card as long as you remember your PRC ID number. As for the renewal, you can start by creating an online account with PRC. You can follow the steps in this post for the steps and list of requirements.

          • Edd Norman Peralta


            Same issue. I lost my PRC ID card, and I don’t memorize my license number. Is there a way I can retrieve my license number so I can apply for renewal?

  • lian

    good morning. ask ko lng po. i have already register online for renewal of my prc ID last january 2019 but I was not able to process it due to personal reasons. I want to renew my licence but I don’t remember my password. I click the “forgot password” but it is says temporary close due to too many request. I created a new account and new password but it says that “the name already exist”.. what will I do? please help me

    • Matt

      Hi Lian,

      You can send an email to prc.helpdesk2@ or you can proceed to PRC Office near you.

  • Princess

    I have an appointment on 08/23, 3-4pm for my renewal. Is there a way I can reschedule it to an earlier time slot on the same day?

    In case cannot be rescheduled, how long would the processing time take?


    • Matt

      Hi Princess,

      You can reschedule it when you are setting your appointment in the PRC website.

  • Lennie Dato

    hi! just want to clarify with regards to bringing extra id picture which you mention in step 8 is optional only. but below that, you mention that a passport id picure with nametag is also a requirement? do i need to bring a passport size picture with nametag aside from the 2×2 size? thank you so much…
    thumbs up??? for this very helpful blog.

    • Matt

      Hi Lennie, as far as I know, the passport-sized ID picture is equal to 2 x 2.

      Good luck and may you have a smooth renewal of your license.

  • eleazar

    question about my forgotten online password i wanted to renew my license but the site mentioned that i have my existing account but i forgot my password. and it states that it is temporarily not available (forgotten password)

    • Matt

      Hi Eleazar,

      I suggest that you email PRC about it prc.helpdesk2 or you can visit the PRC branch near you for your concern.

  • Alfred

    Good day!

    What if I did not arrived on the said appointment but already scheduled that date and paid online? Can I still go another day on PRC?


    • Matt

      You need to send an email to prc.helpdesk2 or visit the PRC branch.

  • Jithromycin

    Hallo Matt,

    Thanks for this walk-trough, very helpful indeed! So just a recap, all i need to bring on the day of my appointment are:
    – Printed document of my receipt (Renewal); and
    – Extra passport size photo just in case the PRC staff rejects the one i uploaded online right?
    Also, is it okay to renew an expired license in a regional branch or do i need to go to the main office to have my license renewed?

    Thanks in advance!

    • Matt


      My PRC ID also was expired when I renew it. All I can say is that I renew it in PRC branch in Robinsons Mall. I did not go to the main office.

      Aside from the mentioned need to bring. You also need to have a hard copy of your “Application for Professional Identification Card.”

      Good luck and may you have a smooth license renewal.

      • Ethel

        Hi! I will be renewing my license on Oct. 28. Do I need to bring all my certificates as a proof of the CPD points? Thank you.

        • Matt

          Hi Ethel,

          You need to photocopy your certificates because you need to submit them to PRC. Good luck!

  • Frederick Siasa Brin

    Hi there!

    I have the online registration last June 2019 and unfortunately I forgot my password and now I can’t log in and proceed for PRC license renewal for appointment.

    Please help me regarding this concern.


    • Matt

      Hi Frederick,

      The best way is to email PRC or visit any of their branch.

  • June

    Hi! thank you very much for your detailed infos on renewing prc license!

    I just want to ask, what is the earliest possible time when can I renew my license? It will expire on September 2020.

    Thank you!

    • Matt

      Hi June,

      You may send an email to PRC prc.helpdesk2 about your concern.

  • Ann

    What to do if applying for renewal id says that my name is mismatched. I renewed my id last 2017 online btw. I don’t know why they say that in fact all entries is me

    • Matt

      Hi Ann,

      The best way is to send PRC an email at PRC prc.helpdesk2 regarding your concern. I hope your concern will be solved soon.

  • Jay

    Hi, I’m about to renew my license. Why is the ‘Central Office’ not part of the choices to pick up your ID? Are the slots full already?

  • yani

    I did the online renewal and I am scheduled to complete my renewal or visit the office on October 4, my question is, can I walk in to their office prior to the scheduled date?

    • Matt

      No, you can’t.

  • kreez

    hi, this is awesome info.. just want more clarification and more infos on what to do,,,
    been searching and asking my friends in phils. what to do in renewing the PRC license i have. it will expire this december 2019. and im so worried with the said renewing license required additional units, but since im living here abroad and yes im pretty sure i dont have additional units or trainings done yet.
    am i still be able to renew my license tho i dont have the said extra additonal units or trainings?
    in my case, what should i have to prepare when i renew my license? i live here in abroad but am not an ofw, what documents do i have to show as a proof am a resident of other country? and since i am not an ofw its like i cant get a ofw certification from the phil.embassy here….
    just so confuse, im scheduled to go home this coming december and one purpose is to renew my prc license too.

    • Matt

      Hi Kreez,

      Even if you are not an OFW but you are working abroad then I think you need to show proof that you are working overseas. Or you can send an email directly to PRC since they can give you the best advice prc.helpdesk2 Good luck!!!

      • Min

        I just would like to ask if cpd units are required for renewal even if your not in practice with your profession?

  • Jocelyn S. Manuel

    I followed the steps but after i fill up the information there was a mismatched with the infos a gave them, do i need to go to the head office ?

    • Matt

      You do not need to go to the main office. Just visit the PRC satellite office near you. Good luck!

  • darrs

    hi! i’m about to do this online renewal, unfortunately i cant give my license number since I cant remember it and my card is lost. I currently not in the phil., is there any way i can renew my license? what do you think are the requirements and/or can i send someone in PRC to do the renewal in my place? thanks very much!

    • Matt

      You can send them an email prc.helpdesk2

  • Niezel

    How to recover the password of the email address? Thank you.

  • Niezel

    I mean, without going to their office, their hotline is currently down.

  • LEIZEL Ann

    I forgot my email and password account in signing in to prc renewal. Can I make again? Using may name? I am trying to make a new account but It did not accepted because my name has already an account.

    • Matt

      You cannot make a new account because you are already registered. You can send an email to PRC prc.helpdesk2 regarding your concern.

  • Carlo

    Hi Matt, My license expires in 8 days (September) But the earliest schedule that I can only find is on December. Should I continue to schedule on the December month? or should I walk-in directly to PRC Manila?

    • Matt

      Hi Carlo,

      PRC does not accept walk-in since the implementation of the online renewal system.

  • Mirannel Macaranas

    Hi..Thank you very much for the detailed information, however, I am trying to renew my PRC license on line, I am based here in USA, the PayMaya does not accepts my payment ( I have tried my debit card and even my credit card Capital one, which can be used internationally) with no success, though you have mention that they can accept payments starting June 28, 2019. My question is, how can I pay if I will send my mother-in-law as my representative to the UCPB bank?Should she just need to say to the teller the PRC transaction payment and after that do I have to wait to the LERIS to post my payment before I print the document that is needed to present on the PRC satellite service? A little lost on that side, I hope you could help me the steps. Thank you very much.

    • Matt

      Hi Mirannel,

      Yes, you can pay using paymaya since June 28, 2019 though, I do not know why you can’t use that online payment facility (I included a link for reference). When you do the over the counter payment at UCPB, you need to present the print-out / screenshot of the PRC payment reference number. The PRC payment reference number comes with 12-alpha numeric characters. Good luck!

      • Mirannel Macaranas

        Ok, update.. So, I have no idea why the paymaya does not work on me so I tried to choose to pay in PRC branch/satellite branch instead and that works for me, it led me now to the screen that my pending payment and the ref no. as well that they allow you to screen shot/picture it to present on the PRC cashier. So, in this sense, we need a representative to do the transaction in behalf of us,just make sure to give them your authorization letter and documents needed as well (which is Im not sure what else, but I will follow the advice you have mentioned above, except the CPD)….And thats it, we will see the result. I am scheduled on October 17, 2019. Thank you very much for the information and the fast response to my queries. God bless!

        • Matt

          Hi Mirannel,

          I hope it will be smooth this time. Good luck!

    • Cheryl Devitte

      Hi Mirannel,
      I’m using Bank of America to pay for my renewal, they’re not choosy.


    Good Morning! Just registered online and input correct info details to renew my license.
    But when i tried to proceed to renewal of my license, In appointment I cant select preferred PRC regional office . What can I do. thank you.

    • Matt

      Hi Lezyl,

      Since you input incorrect details I suggest that you email PRC at prc.helpdesk2 and inform them about your concern. You can also visit the PRC branch near your location.

  • Raisa Mae Soria

    Thank you for sharing this.
    I am an ofw just having my vacation here and I would like to renew my license. Do you know what are the requirements for OFW to be exempted for CPD? Can I go at PRC office without an appointment or PRC account?

    Thank you so much. Godbless.

    • Matt

      HI Raisa,

      You need to show proof that you are an overseas Filipino worker to be exempted with cpd requirement (please read the reference I have included in the post).

      As far as I know, PRC implements no same-day appointment policy, hence you cannot do walk-in anymore (please read my reference included in the post).

      I also suggest that you inquire directly to PRC office near you for other concerns and also to get first hand knowledge of their latest PRC ID renewal policy.

      Thank you and Good luck!

      • Raisa Mae D. Soria

        Thank you so much.

        Just want to clear something, for the ID picture.
        2×2 or passport size? With nametag or no?

        Thanks ?

        • Matt

          Hi Raisa,

          As far as I know, the requirement is passport size picture or 2×2 with name tag. When I checked online 2×2 inch is the size of the passport picture.

  • nj

    hi for ofw can i walk in? thank you

    • Matt

      Based on the reference I have included in the post, walk in is not allowed.

  • kimnamjoon

    Wow, this is very helpful. I followed the steps and thankfully I now have a schedule for my ID renewal! It’s just right in time for my vacation, as I am working abroad. Thanks, Matt!

    • Matt

      Welcome, I hope your renewal will be smooth!

  • Joan

    Hello just want to ask regarding the renewal of license. I have an immediate need of renewing my license it was expired last year. Is it possible that I can renew it even if I am still here abroad? I will just have a representative to process the renewal of my ID.. If that’s possible what are the requirements needed.

    • Matt

      Hi Joan,
      There are two scenarios for you to renew your license with the help of a representative.

      1. If your representative is also a PRC registered professional he/she only need an authorization letter plus that person’s own PRC ID to transact with PRC on your behalf.
      2. If your representative is NOT a PRC registered professional that person needs a special power of attorney, his /her valid and identification card, and your valid identification card to be able to transact with PRC on your behalf.

      I think in the two option, number 1 is the easiest for you.

      I hope this helps. Good luck Joan!

      • Jay

        What if the registered PRC professional is already retired? do i have to do option 2?

        • Matt

          This is just my opinion if the professional is retired but still has a PRC valid license I think you can still do option 2.

  • leonila torrevillas

    I cannot proceed to applying online renewal because I forgot the email that I used when I registered. I can no longer sign in.

    • Matt

      Hi Leonila,

      You need to send an email to PRC prc.helpdesk2 or visit prc branch near your place.

      • Jenalyn

        Hi,I have already made my PRC I’d renewal online and choosed UCPB for payment,but there’s no UCPB and Paymaya on our area.Can I pay to G-cash even if its not in the payment option?thank you

  • Jay

    Can I renew even if my license is expired? I am living in the US now and I need a license verification do I need my license to be renewed for verification? Thank you.

    • Matt

      In my opinion your validity matters for verification of your license. The reason is if your ID is expired then it is no longer valid to use for verification.

  • Joseph A. Lopez

    Hello, my PRC license is 24 years expired. I am working as a Nurse in a foundation(NGO) here in Negros Occidental. And now our company required us to renew our PRC. What are we going to do? Thanks..

    • Matt

      Hi Joseph,

      Since your Nursing License has been expired for more than 20 years, I think the best way is to visit the PRC branch near your location. Inquire to them directly. I hope they can help you renew your license.

      I think there is a PRC satellite office in Robinsons Place Bacolod its address is Lacson St, Bacolod, 6100 Negros Occidental.

      There is also a satellite office in Robinsons Place Dumaguete its address is Dumaguete Business Park, Dumaguete, Negros Oriental.

      I hope somehow, I was able to help you with my reply. Good luck!

          Hi Mary Ann,

          You need to follow your appointment schedule otherwise, you need to reschedule it.

  • Charm

    Hi I already renew my pic but I signed the oath of undertaking and write that I need 45 plus 24 units but recently I learned that we are exempted because It was our first time to renew can I change the entries??

  • Jay

    Hi Sir Matt, thank you for this blog. I was able to renew my expired RN license when I was on vacation in the Phils last month following your guide. No CPD units required right now but they told me to provide it on the next renewal. Process took only about 15 mins. and I was given my new card same day which was awesome lol. Thanks again.

    • Matt

      Hi Jay,

      I am happy that I was able to help you through this blog post. Cheers!

    • Belle

      • Isiah

    Hi! Thank you so much for this guide.

    I just wanted to clarify though regarding petition of changing name due to marriage.
    My card got expired last May 2019 and got married recently. So, I’m planning to renew my ID card at the same time update my marital status.
    My question is, do I have to register/set up an appointment online to renew my license card or is it okay just to walk in at the branch?

    Hope to hear your response. It would help a lot. Thank you :)

  • Cella Bondame

    My mom’s card got expired and she got married. So now she’s asking me to renew her ID card at the same time update her marital status.

    My question is, does my mom have to register/set up an appointment online to renew the license card or is it okay just to walk in at the branch?

    Hope to hear from you soon. Thank you!

    • Matt

      Hi Cella, you can read the frequently asked questions part in the post for other details. Good luck!

    I have a problem in printing my APPLICATION FOR PROFESSIONAL IDENTIFICATION CARD (PIC) form. After completing my profile, I clicked on the existing transaction option and then clicked on the “Print Document” option but I only got a blank page. What seem to be the problem?

    Thank you in advance!

  • Ramie

    Are there any of you trying to access the prc site for renewal recentky? Are you guys having problems or is it just me? I can’t sign in using my saved password and the forgot password option is temporarily unavailable. It’s so frustrating because I badly need to renew my license.

    • Gel

      Just want to ask if you have an idea on how to change the mode of receiving the prc id. I want to change it from delivery to pick up instead. I thought it could be delivered in our place that’s why I chose the delivery option, but unfortunately our location was not included or covered by the delivery service of the courier. Thank you

  • Andrew

    I was able to renew my license last 2017 without cpd points required but was told to provide the next time I renew. This month, I am supposed to renew again. How many cpd points should I present? Do I need to present cpd points for my previous aside from the one required for my present renewal?

  • mabelle

    can i apply for change of status at the same time renew my prc license online? or do i have to go to prc office and apply for change status first, before i can renew my license online?

  • Anne

    Hi ! Sir Matt! Good day! May I ask if you have an idea about Landbank Bancnet as a mode of payment.What should I do first? When I did my transaction,I didn’t know that we should need an existing account upon using this. I thought there’s
    “over the counter”. But there’s none. I don’t have any idea for this at all. :(

    Thank you for your reply.

    • Matt

      Hi Anne,

      Sorry, I haven’t tried landbank. Maybe some of the commenters know the answer to your question.

      • Anne

        Good day again! Sir Matt! Thank you for the immediate response. But, I have another clarification. When I did my online payment in Landbank payment, I couldn’t finish the transaction. Maybe because of the system. My question is when I pay it on the appointment date, can I get the renewed PIC card on the same day? Thank you again.

      • jade

        Yes you need to have a debit or credit card from landbank for you to enable to transact

  • Glendon Capiz

    Hi why is PRC central office not in the choices for regional office option? Can we renew in the main PRC office at sampaloc manila?

  • Paul Romano

    I’ve tried multiple times to sign in but it says my email is not registered yet. Then I tried to registered once more and even tried to registered with different email addresses, it says that my name has already an account. I also tried to click the forgot password buttom but it says ’email is not registered’. I don’t know what should I do. Can you please give some advise? Many thanks!

  • JP

    Does OSSCO POEA accept license renewal even for non-OFWs? Can I still choose it as a place for my appointment? I’m renewing my PRC license and the one at POEA has the earliest available date. I hope you can help me. Thank you.

  • Heziel Taligatos

    I am an OFW. Can I walk in for the renewal?

  • Anne

    Hi, I just want to ask since it’s my first time to renew my PRC license (for teaching), I was able to read here that no CPD units are required for newly passers. Does that mean that I only need to bring the printed PRC ID renewal form and bring some passport size picture or 2×2. No other requirements other than that? Thank you. ?

  • Gery Ross A. Yumping

    I can not remember my email AND password that i used in registration. What to do? Any help desk I can email..

    • Matt

      You can send email directly to PRC at prc.helpdesk2

    Hi, I am a returning OFW in Qatar on March 5, 2020. I just have the online appointment in Robinson Starmills Pampanga but the date of appointment is March 7, 2020 which is a later date with my return to abroad. My question is, can I approach the PRC to have the appointment prior to my return date?

    • Matt

      You can check this part in the post with the title “Allowed Persons in Express Lane, and Courtesy Lane during PRC License Renewal.” Provide proof that you are an OFW.

  • Chloe

    Hello Matt!

    Thanks much for this reliable and informative post on the PRC renewal. It’s been very helpful.

    Just a concern, I clicked on print document and only the PIC application came out in PDF file. As for the printed payment details, do I just screenshot this including the barcode? I paid this through PayMaya and no advise saying which to print and take a screenshot of.

    Hope to hear from you soon!

    Thanks much, Matt!

  • Carmen Valentine M. Roca

  • Rexil Bordaje

    Hi, would like to ask since no CPD required for renewal are accepted til December 2020. My license will expire November 10, 2021. Is it possible for me to renew it earlier anytime this year? or should be November of this year 2020 also? I need details please. Thank you!

  • Jane

    Hi Matt!
    I just want to ask if i can still apply for renewal of my prc id even if i dont have any cpd’s yet. What i am going to do? Your reply will be gratefully appreciated.Thanks.

    • Matt

      Hi Jane, you can read the part in the post about the required CPD units before you can renew your PRC license.

  • JOM Bernardo

    how many copies of renewal form is needed? and do we need also to photocopy the receipt? thanks

  • Danica

    Is there a way I can immediately notify PRC that my PIC was lost. My wallet was recently stolen along with my PIC. I initially applied for duplicate/replacement but since my license will expire less than a year, I have to file it as renewal application already. The nearest appointment schedule is on April 7. I just want to notify PRC as soon as possible so the card number on my PIC will be immediately blocked but since the appointment is still on April 7, I am quite worried.

    • Matt

      Hi Danica, the fastest is to send them an email or call their office or visit their branch near you.

  • Sheinlie Marie


    I have a question. What are the requirements needed and the steps that I should do in order to renew my lost PRC license? I cannot file for a duplicate/replacement since it will expire in less than a year.

    Thank you!


    Thank you for the information. ♥️
    But I have concern ahmmm My license will expire on June 24 but can I renew it before June, like for example “March or April?” Is it possible? ?

  • Eve

    Hi, I lost my ID recently but i cannot file it as duplicate or replacement since it will be expiring in less than a year. if i am to directly proceed to renewing it, do i still need to present an affidavit of loss? thanks for your response.

  • Grace

    Good eve, nagregister ako for renewal of my id but when i tried to signed i i cannot open it ang sabi wrong password and email. So i tried to change password pati n rin ung email but still ganun pa rin. Can i go directly to the PRC office to renew my IDs? Thank you

    • Matt

      You can send PRC an email regarding your username and password so they can assist you with it. Currently, PRC does not accept walk-in. You need to set an appointment online and come to the PRC office at your scheduled appointment date.

  • Jamie David

    hi i hope you can answer my question. I tried to renew my PRC license through online. but it was showing “slot is full” to all locations we have selected. That is why I cannot proceed for my license renewal. Is there any other way I can process my PRC license renewal? I am an OFW working here in United Arab Emirates. Appreciate your soonest response.
    Thank you in advance

    • Matt

      Hi Jamie, you can send an email to PRC about your concern.


    hi, apr 24,2020 was my appointment date to pay for my renewal of license,unfortunately it was ecq.. what will ido?, should i register again or can i use the same reference number if ever where and when can i pay my due.

  • Eden May

    Hi. I would like to ask for clarification about this matter, ” Newly licensed professionals will also be exempted from CPD requirement on their first renewal cycle. ” I already got my license way back 2019 and it will expire year 2022. Is it possible that I don’t need any CPD Units when I’m going to renew my license? Please help me with this one. Thank you!

  • Elaine

    Thank you. This is really helpful and informative. Just wanted to ask, due to this pandemic, we – OFWs won’t be able to know when we can go back to our home country. Hence, it is difficult for us to set an appointment date. Expiration of my license is in December 2020 however I wanted to renew early to avoid being crammed. Thanks in advance for your response. Hoping you’d clear the ambiguity. Stay safe.

    • Matt

      Hi Elaine, better to wait for an announcement coming from PRC coz I also do not have an idea about it.

  • regiepe

    Hi..I just want to ask what will i do if my online registration says that my emailadd and password is invalid.When i try to click forgot password then I enter my emailadd it says that my emailadd cannot be open.I want to renew my prc id.When I wat to register again it says I already have my account.What will I do?

    • Matt

      Hi Regiepe, you need to send an email to PRC regaring your concern.

  • Joan

    Hi! I’ll be renewing my PRC license this week. Do I need to notarize the printed PRC renewal form? Thank you for your response.

    • Matt

      As far as I remember, there is no need to noratize the renewal form. Congrats for your renewed PRC ID.

  • Butch Crisostomo

    Renewal of PRC Licence schedule of appointment last May 19, 2020.
    Went to OSSCO POEA but in my dissapointment, no one is there. Only guards.

  • Ruben Mariano


    My license is for renewal, and I tried to schedule an appointment. However, the system prompts me that there was “NO SLOT AVAILABLE. The place you have chosen has reached its maximum number of slots.” I’ve chosen PRC Davao City as the place to renew my license. How should I proceed? No more slots for the remaining days/months of the year or the following years?

    • Matt

      Hi Ruben, You need to email prc about your concern.


    I have a problem on signing in through online registration for my renewal of license.
    Invalid email add and password comes out everytime I sign in.
    What can I do with this problem?

    • Matt

      Hi Nina, you need to contact prc about your concern.

  • Pinky Joice O. Garo

    Hi, i just want to ask if it is possible to get my Renewed ID in any branch of PRC office here in Region 2, even my exam place is in Manila? Thankyou. :)

    • Matt

      Hi Pinky, yes! Because you are the one who will choose the branch where you will process your ID.

  • Anna

    Heard that there’s now an option to ship thru wwwexpress for PRC Renewal transaction in the portal but the PRC step-by-step guide is not yet updated w/ this. Checked the websites of PRC and wwwexpress but no announcement yet about this new feature. Do you have any idea please on how this works?

  • Ma. Angelika Soberano

    Hello! I do not have CPD units because i went to medschool for a year and now i want to renew my license that will expire on august 2020. What should i do?

    • Matt

      According to PRC, professionals who are unable to comply with the CPD credit units are ALLOWED to renew their PRC ID upon executing an undertaking to complete the required CPD credit units for the next compliance period. I think professionals can avail of this under December 31, 2021. You verify this at the official website of PRC. Check the details under the “CPD Notice” part. Good luck!

  • Lean Jordan Elemento

    I’ve renewed my license last June 7, 2020 through PRC website. I’ve completed everything, including the payment, but the website did not mention on how long will it take to process and to be shipped to my address. Can you please enlighten me about the process time and shipment?


    • Matt

      Hi Lean,

      The best way to get the correct details is to email PRC about your concern prc.helpdesk2


        I have the same question. How long does it usually take for the Renewal ID be delivered. I made the payment on June 17, 2020. However, I haven’t received my ID yet. BTW, the email address cited above is no longer valid. Thanks.

  • Miriam

    I do not find any payment options other than paymaya, landbank and credit card options. I clicked on landbank hoping to pay thru bank teller however, it asked for landbank account number, which i do not have. As of the moment, it seems there are no slots available in NCR and no other mode of payment besides cashless/online banking.

    • Matt

      You can also try over the counter in UCPB. I have tried them before.

      For the PRC no slot available. You can watch the video presentation for an idea on how to get PRC slot.

  • May Belle

    Hi! I am overseas and will ask someone to do the application in behalf of me. Is it really necessary to have Special Power of Attorney or just a simple Authorization will do?


    • Matt

      Hi May Belle, you can process the prc id renewal online. What your representative can do is to collect your ID on your behalf. He/she needs an authorization letter from your plus your ID, and the ID of your representative.

      • Grace


        Hope all is well. I have a question about the below:

        Option 2: If your representative is NOT a PRC registered professional
        that person needs to present a special power of attorney, his / her valid identification card, plus your own valid identification card to be able to transact with PRC on your behalf.

        So I am an OFW and will have my brother collect it for me. It says it also need my own valid identification , eh I only have my passport and maybe my SSS, pero I cant mail it to the Philippines for obvious reasons.

        Will they take po kaya a photocopy then maybe I can sign it?

        • Matt

          Hi Grace, based on my experience, PRC only needs a photocopy of your IDs. You can let your brother have the photocopy of your valid IDs when he collects PRC ID.
          I hope this eases up your concern. Good luck and Take care!

  • Kath

    How long will it takes to deliver the renewed PRC license? Thank you. I filed it today.

  • Gem

    good day! my renewal date is on the 24th of June. I can’t go to my prc appointment because I was put on duty that day. Do I need to set a new appointment or can I just go to the PRC on my day off? Thanks.

  • Maria Louise Gatches

    Wille it be possible to walk-in if I am just going to get my license?

    Btw, I missed my oath taking ceremony last feb.

  • Wilhelmina Arroyo

    How can i reschedule my appointment? I already paid for June 30 appointment but i am stock here at the province and no ferry allowed to travel because of the quarantine.

  • Jane

    Good day! Can we change the appointment place? thank you in advance.

    • Matt

      You can change your appointment place during setting of appointment in the prc website. You can also email the PRC regional office for your concern.

  • viera

    Once you’ve paid online, how long will it appear on your license verification that you’re active again? I just paid but when I checked to verify it still says expired. I did select the option of having it shipped to a residential address. Do you have any idea how long before I’ll receive my PIC in the mail and how long before it would say I’m active? Thanks!

    • viera

      Hi again,
      Just an update, since I last paid PRC on June 28 via PayMaya for my renewal, I checked my status and it became valid on June 30. So it’s around 48 hours before it becomes activated after you pay online. I’m just waiting for shipping now which I paid on the same day as I renewed.

      • Matt

        Hi Viera, thank you for sharing your experience. It will be very helpful to fellow professionals who will also renew their license online in PRC.

    • Red

      miss viera,
      did you go to any PRC Branch? Or simply all are on line?
      I’m planning to use the UCPB-Over the counter payment and Shipping method.
      And how many days before it was delivered to your house?
      Thanks po!

  • SMFR

  • Carl

    I try to renew my PRC licensed id but i use transaction through shipping, i just want to ask how many day will i wait until i receive my PRC id, di po kc nilagay sa shipping transaction kung kelan i papadala ung PRC id ko

    • Tommy

      Hi Carl any update on how many days it take to ship from the time you paid renewal and shipping fee. My case I paid shipping fee however PRC system still showing shipping pending. Thanks in advance for your inputs.

      • Matt

        Hi Sir Tommy, based on the PRC website, the delivery lead time is 10 to 14 working days from payment date.

  • Roldan Ocampo

    Hi, i just want to ask. My id expired last year, and still wasn’t able to renew. I already applied for renewal and been scheduled on Nov. 2020. I also lost my id last year which is another reason why I wasn’t able to renew it. Should i still apply for replacement of my id or should i just present an affidavit of loss then i can proceed already to renewal? Thank you.

    • Matt

      This is just my opinion. Since your ID is already expired then there is no need to apply for a PRC ID replacement. You should apply for a PRC ID renewal instead.
      Based on my experience, PRC do not ask the applicant to show the expired ID upon claiming of the new one. I hope this gives you an idea.

  • Eiren

    hi! i set an appointment for my id renewal and the earliest date given to me is on Oct.27,2020. It is 3 months from now. I just want to ask, do i have to settle the payment asap or i can pay for the renewal fee any day before my appointment date? Thank you so much!

    • Lhen Val

      I need help please. A year after I passed my Med. Tech Board Exam, I studied Medicine and now practicing. I already lost my PRC id (Med.

  • carmela

    Hi. I chose the online renewal and delivery to address option. Do you have any idea how long will the process and delivery will take? And, where can I also check the status of my application for renewal?

  • Tala

    Hi. Ask ko lng po if gano katagal ang process ng renewal bgo mo mareceive yung card? Tia.

  • Byron

    Sir, I find this very helpful. Thank you po for taking time to create this.

    I was supposed to renew last January 202 0 unfortunately despite arriving there 2 hours earlier than appointment time, di nila na cater kasi dami talagang tao. I tried to book an online appointment today July 31 and to my surprise, January 2021 na ang available slots. Would you know if nag default sila going to next year because of the quarantine status? I find it odd na parang impossible naman yata puno na lahat ng slots from August to Dec 2020. Thank you sir! God bless!

    • Matt

      Hi Sir Byron, you can check sir the on what to do if there is “No Slots Available” at the official website of PRC.

    • Matt

      Hi Sir Anthony, the best way po is to inquire directly sa PRC regarding your concern. They are the best person to answer your concern po.

  • Charity

    I just recently submitted my change of status for my license.. After 2 weeks I tried to make an appointment for my prc renewal, i know that 60 day processing is not yet finished but I just tried to make an appointment, unfortunately, the system told me “MISMATCHED” when proceeding to the renewal appointment… Do you think this is related with the processing of my change status/name? I am hoping that it is.. I’m too worried that I may not renew my license because of the error message…

  • Rochelle J. Tongohan

  • Lynn

    I have an expired license and needed to be renewed and I need to change my status. Which should I process first? Is it the change status or the renewal of license?
    Thanks in advance

  • Christine Cortes


    I passed last 2012 and never got my PRC ID. Now that I have the time to process, I’m having trouble getting my NOA number from PRC. I’ve emailed them since Feb. 2020 and one of the responses I got was the link of PRC. So, I was wondering if you know how I could get my NOA so I can schedule my appointment.

    Thank you in advance

  • grace

    How could I re schedule my appointment date? thanks.

  • Lovely jane banzon

    Hello po.. Ano po pipiliin na transaction kapag ID authentication lang po?

  • emman

    Hi Matt, I just want to ask if i can renew my PIC in any regional offices, either NCR branches or in region IV or V so on..because those offices have the open slot for appointment,thanks in advance…

    • Matt

      Yes, you can do that. You also have to collect the PIC on the regional office where you scheduled your appointment.

      You cannot set your appointment schedule in Region IV and collect your ID in NCR. Good luck!

  • Nem

    Hi! I just wanna ask if an ofw is still exempted with CPD units? If I renew my license, how to fill in the undertaking on the printed appointment? TIA

  • Carlyn

    Hi, i just want to ask if I did the prc online renewal and I am still in abroad, can I ask a famile member to claim it in the PRC office?

  • Elmar

    I’m a Filipino citizen working in the US. I’m a permanent resident here. Am I exempted from the CPD requirements? In my case, I am not an OFW. I don’t have POEA documents. Thanks!

  • Bea

    Hi! I would like to ask what are the requirements/procedures if I missed my appointment?

    Thank you!

  • Rory

    if i opted for delivery service for my online renewed PRC ID and it has been more than 14 working days, how can i follow up or track the status of my renewal? thanks for your reply

    • Roan Jane Jose

      I just wanna ask if you already got your license, if yes, how long did it take for them to deliver it. If no, since when are you waiting? Thanks

  • Roan Jane Jose

    Hello. I processed my renewal online on September 30,2020 and until now, my license has not been delivered. What should I do?

    • Mary

      Hi, did you get your licence yet? I did my application online almost a month ago an hasn’t received it too

  • Jeanine

    Hi, can I opt to renew my PRC ID with the delivery service even if I’m not in NCR? I’m thinking of putting my friend as the contact person and its address in NCR. Is that possible? We don’t have any PRC office in our province. It’s too costly and there are too many requirements when travelling to a different province.

  • Maan Salvador

    Hi good day. Can i renew my expired(since 2015) prc license and without cpd yet? Planning to go back and work again as a nurse. Thank you! What should i need for the renewal?

  • Lareezha Fatima Ulao

    Hi! I have a concern and this is about renewal of my prc license. How can I cancel my scheduled appointment set on August 2021 even though its already been paid online.?thank you

  • Jhoanne

    Hi! Can I renew my license ( expiring this month ) and change my status and surname at the same time? Are they already requiring CPD units for nurses? Thank you!


    Is the shipping service available for REE and RME?
    As I check the PRC website, no option for shipping service. Thank you

    • Matt

      Hi Mark, as far as I know, the shipping / delivery service is only available in NCR.

  • Clifford

    Hi! Can I go to the satellite office at the scheduled date (Oct 28, 2020) with a “pending” payment status in PRC but have already paid it. UCPB Payment validation is within 2 to 3 working days, so probably the payment status will once be “paid” on Oct 29, 2020. Please advise. Thank you.

  • K Magbitang

    I have a question. I processed my online renewal prc card Oct. 16, 2020. Paid for shipping and all. Until now I haven’t received my new card. Is there a number I can make a follow up? Many thanks!

    • Grace

      Same here. I did my online renewal last October 17. Until now I havent received it. I emailed the courier. They said that the PRC has not released my ID yet.

  • Kristine Joan C. Ledesma

    Hi, my PRC ID was already expired as of July 2015 and it was lost 2 years ago. I wasn’t able to practice my profession so I wasn’t able to renew it. Can I still renew my PRC license? Do I still need the CPD unit compliance? As far as I know, renewal of PRC ID without full CPD Compliance are accepted until December 2020. Hoping for your immediate reply. Thank you.

  • Shine Gabison

    Sir. Good day. I missed to claim my renewed PRC id last March 23 2020 due to lockdown. Can i go directly or walk-in on my chosen branch to claim my prc id or i have to make an appointment just to get my id? TIA

  • Jonell

    Can I get an authentication of PRC license thru walk-in?

  • Shie

    Hi Mr.Matt Thanks for sharing. Would you know if i can do all the renewal processes online as I am now based abroad.Or online & delivery is only applicable to data encoding and prc id issuance/release? Do i really have to appear personally for the appointment? Thanks in advance!

  • Cholo Alido

    Hi! How can I cancel my existing transaction for the renewal of PRC ID?

    • Matt

      Hi Cholo, you can login on your online account then select online transaction. While at the online transaction page, you can take a look at the list of your online transaction on the left side. From there you can cancel your existing transaction.

  • Zhac

    I just renewed my professional license already this afternoon (Nov.18,2020). I followed these steps here from this website and PRC official website just for another reference.
    This website was a helpful tool for me to successfully accomplish my renewal. Of course before going to my chosen PRC site/office which was in Robinsons Manila, I have my appointment scheduled, paid beforehand the required payment and prepared my requirements to be submitted to them. Process of renewal was fast! My original schedule today was supposed to be 4-5pm but good thing I went there much earlier (1pm) and told me it’s okay to process it early. They asked me to submit my PIC form and my CPD certificate. I only have 1 CPD certificate that was equivalent for the required completed 15 units for a 3-day seminar so I did not fill-up the Undertaking then I just SHOWED my payment slip (UCPB). I only submitted 2 documents : PIC FORM (colored) and my 1 CPD certificate(photocopy) then after that they gave me already my renewed PRC I.D. They didn’t asked me for my old PRC i.d.

    I was late for like 7 mos. in renewing my prc i.d. so I had a surcharge fee 30 pesos ( i think it applies even if you’re just 1 month, 2 mos etc. late–same fee). So total payment I paid was 450+30= Php 480 which was thru UCPB bank. I’m glad I already claimed my renewed professional i.d same day!!!

    Thanks to Matt who created this detailed info./guide for the renewal of PRC i.d. ! I read this website a lot of times to verify if I did not miss anything.

    NOTE: I filled-up online July 2020 and I was surprised that the earliest date available for my renewal appointment was this Nov. 18, 2020 (too long!!).
    So if I were you, try and set appointment ASAP so that you could renew your PRC I.D. on time. Not sure if setting an earlier date for appointment is much better now. Anyway, these are what I experienced and to let you know this guide that Matt provided for us was effective. I appreciated it !! ^^

    • Matt

      Hi Zhac,

      Thank you very much! I am super happy that this blog somehow able to help you in renewing your PRC ID.

      Also, thanks for sharing your experience while at the PRC satellite office. It will give others an idea when it’s their turn to renew their ID. More power to you!

  • Grace

    Hello! I did an online renewal last October 17 however until now I have not received my ID. Is it because I did not submit the undertaking form? Do I need to submit it?

  • Mark Anthony

    How can i change my mode of payment? As of dec.7, the ucpb branch here at novaliches bayan is not accepting prc renewal payment. I dont know if only that specified branch or all ucpb branches are not accepting payments. And theres no way i can change it on my existing online transaction. Thanks

    • Shiela

      Hi, i also have existing transactions, and paymaya said, i cannot use the same reference no.. pls help me, i am working overseas.
      Thank you for the help. God bless

      • Matt

        Hi, let us wait for other commenters. Maybe they have experience paying their renewal through paymaya.

  • Marylou Geldore Caballero

    Hi. Do I need to give CPD certificate even though it is my first time to renew? TIA

  • KIM


  • KATH


    • Matt

      Hi Kath, PRC does not allow walk-in renewal anymore. So I suggest that you check the PRC website every day to see if they have an updated schedule for December. You can also check the nearby branches to know if they have an available schedule there for this month.

  • Renee


    My license is expired in 2005 and I wanted to renew online. I was able to create a sign in I just need to attach a photo. I am based here in the US and need to renew my license for work reasons. I know that CPD is not required until Dec 2021. Would I be able to renew it and how does it work to get the new one in the mail. Can you please advise?

    • Matt

      Hi Renee, you can renew your PRC license online. If you have a relative in NCR, you can have it shipped to their address. Provide them the necessary documents such as your authorization letter, their valid ID, and a copy of your valid ID. As far as I know, PRC does not deliver to address outside of NCR.

      I hope this helps you. Good luck!

  • Symon

    i have already paid for the shipping but it still does not reflect on my prc transaction page

    • Matt

      As far as I know, it will not reflect immediately, you need to wait a few days for PRC to verify your payment, and then they will update what is on your transaction page.

  • Genevieve Fino

    Hi. Do they ask for your existing PRC ID?

    • Matt

      Based on my experience, they do not ask for an existing ID when I renew my license.

  • Lilian Madrilejo

    Hi matt, how do i change my payment options i initially thought landbank accepts otc transaction before i read this thread. I’d like to go to ucpb instead which is more convenient? Thanks

  • alfredo c. lopez

    thanks for giving the professional a nice guide lines in filing the application of the prc renewal. However it is not yet very satisfactory because some non-bacalauriate professionals are not yet educated for online transaction. Much better the PRC will make a simple question on the forms. A multiple forms requirements are required to be accomplished why not make it simple and adequate. In fact, they have already a license meaning they have already completed a detailed information on their personal history. Therefore for online information the requirement shall be Application for Renewal Of PRC License, CPD of 15 units, Recent Photo and Payment Receipt.

  • alfredo lopez

    The PRC has no privilege granted to senior citizen professional, At least those seniors shall be allowed for walk-in application and shall not be required for a one-day policy of PRC. We may request the PRC to extend the life of the license from 3 years to five years. The professional drivers which are not professional have already a minimum life of license for 5 years while the real professional are enjoying only 3 years. Thank you.

  • Cher

    Hello, is it possible to just pay the the fee for the renewal of the id in the regional office itself?

    Hello. I would like to know if I can’t go to my schedule on March 11, 2021 for renewal, can I rescheduled it and how soon? Or I can go anytime after the scheduled date? I was advised not to go to PRC QC due to rise of covid 19 cases and lockdowns in the city.

  • Riyah

    may I ask if I still need to set an appointment in order to get my Board of Certificate. I passed the exam last 2019 and due to the current situation I wasn’t able to get my Certificate yet. Can I still get it though? May I also ask if Board of Certificate and Certificate of Passing is the same? TY. Hope someone answers my question.

  • Sheh

    Hi! I just got recently married and as per checking with PSA our marriage certificate is still on process. My license will expire next month. I want to file petition to change surname due to marriage however I am not sure if PRC will accept marriage certificate original copy issued by Local Civil Registry instead of PSA. Will PRC accept it? Hoping for your response. Thank you.

  • Cherry Pie

    Hi thanks for the info, but just want to ask if we can use our international credit/debit cards for paying the renewal fees? Currently i’m working abroad and will opt to renew my ID using the delivery services. One more thing, when i go to the renewal page, the delivery option is not showing up, will it be available once i made the payment for the renewal fees or it should be the first option beforehand. Thanks

  • Bhea

    Hi.. I already paid my renewal ID and i have appointment on May but unfortunately I cant come home or anyone of my friends here in KSA coz they keep cancelling the flights.. is it automatically renew sine I paid it? Thus it necessary to come in the PRC office to process my ID? If not so, is my previous payment still valid for another appointment??

  • Kit

    Hi, I have typed a wrong birthdate on my online prc profile. How can it be undone since its a mismatch :( thank you

  • Anna

    Hi I’m working abroad and applied online renewal of my license. My brother will collect my prc renewed ID does he needs to present a special power of attorney, his valid identification card, plus my own valid identification card to be able to transact with PRC on my behalf?

  • Joseph

    Hello, Thank you for this helpful information. I have a question, in renewal of id, it seems that I do not have the option of choosing the shipping service? (April 24, 2021). Did they already change that option or Am I doing it wrong?

    • Matt

      I think because you select a PRC office outside of metro manila as your renewal location. Try to select the office within metro manila and see if the “shipping service” option will appear.

  • Shiela

    I have a problem in registering for renewal of my license. I forgot my email and password.

    • Matt

      If you cannot remember your login details the best thing to do is to send an email to PRC or visit their branches near you.

  • shiery

    Tried to renew license and have it delivered but there is no shipping delivery option, just like you said.

    • Matt

      Hi Shiery, maybe you are outside of Metro Manila that is why there is no shipping option for you.

I’m trying to change my address in my profile from Bulacan to Manila but it cannot be edited.

    i am an OFW
    the delivery of the ID option is not available; hence an appointment
    i was able to pay using a mastercard but i cannot come on August 12 to claim my new ID card
    what can be done? thank you for your help.

    • Matt

      Hi Monique, you can let your relatives get the card on your behalf. You just need to provide them a copy of your valid ID, their valid ID, and an authorization letter.

      I hope this helps. Good luck!

  • Melanie Vicente

    Hi, my brother will renew my PRC license, I am working overseas, do i need to send my ID in original form or a scanned copy will do?

    • Matt

      In my experience, a scanned copy will do!

  • Judy

    Good day, In my case my PRC license was expired. I`m an OFW and I have pending CPD units from my previous renewal. Since this year they will not require CPD does it mean that it`s no need for me to send the required CPD I owe before?
    One thing, I scheduled my renewal in PRC Davao because there`s an earliest slot on that branch I will just ask the family of my colleague to renew my license from there. But actually my family is from Manila, just in case does any PRC branch allow my representative to renew my license on the same date but in different PRC branch in Manila?

  • Sonet B, Salvador

    I was able to complete an online renewal of my license. I initially opted to have my ID shipped but I changed my mind. Can I just claim it from the PRC office in Manila? What do I do? Thank you.

    • Matt

      Hi Sonet, Lets wait if some commenters can give their opinion especially those who have done it before.

  • Bobzkie

    Hi Matt,
    I’m about to renew my REE license but I don’t know where can I get Certificate of Good Standing. I’ve seen online application of cogs in PRC website. Is it the one I needed?


    • Matt

      Hi Bobzkie, if you are an Electrical Engineer you can get a certificate of good standing from the Institute of Integrated Electrical Engineers of the Philippines Incorporated (IIEE). They are the accredited professional organization of PRC. I hope this helps. Good luck in renewing your prc license.

  • Elaine

    How could I change my address? Even if you want to edit it, you can’t. I am suprised that you can edit everything except address and your name. How would I do it. Please I need help!

  • Venshyn

    Sir good day! My concern is I cannot find the “rescheduled” button. I want to reschedule my online appointment last November 2020 because there is a new office of PRC in our province Bohol and I input the Cebu office in my online appointment already. My schedule of renewal will be on October 2021. Thank you for your response.

    • Matt

      Hi Venshyn, the other alternative is to cancel your appointment in Cebu and make a new appointment renewal for Bohol this time. Good luck!

  • CJ

    Can i file my petition for name change at a PRC RO instead of going to the main branch? TIA!

      Hi CJ, let us wait if some commenters have tried that option.

    I have no atm account in LDB, can I make a payment here even i have no atm account in LDB?

  • Yollie Fabro

    I just want to ask if I can renew my license without CPD not later than Dec. 2021, since my license will expire in March 2021?

    • Matt

      Hi Yollie, according to the PRC website, yes, you can renew your prc license until December 2021 without cpd units.

  • Matt

    Hi Jeremy, the shipping is only available in Metro Manila. Probably the reason the shipping service is not showing because you select a PRC office outside of metro manila.

  • AMC

    Hi. I just wanna ask. Can I still upload a new ID photo even if I already placed a transaction for renewal of ID? I’ve missed that step, would it affect my transaction since the photo on my PIC application form was the old one?

    • Matt

      Hi AMC, it is still possible to replace your old photo in your PRC profile. However, I do not know if it will affect your transaction. Let’s wait for others commenters to know if they have tried it before.

      Hi Charles, you do not need your old PRC ID to renew your license as long as you know your PRC ID number. I hope this helps!

    Good day!

    Is it true that CPD units are not yet required until December 2021 for those who will renew their PRC License?

  • Asnifah

    Hi, I applied today for my ID renewal, but I have not obtained CPD UNITS yet as of now. What am I going to do? what to put in undertaking the Application for professional Identification if I don’t have cpd units yet? do i need to make an execution of undertaking po? Bakal po kasi hindi ko makuha yong id ko po natatakot ako


    HI GUD DAY my prc license will expire on feb 2022 im asking can i renew it in advance of the expiry date, im a licence real estate appraiser how many CPD DO I NEED, i have existing CPD are still valid their date is 2019 thanks for the answer

    • Madeline Cansino

      Yes, you can renew your license in advance provided that the expiry will be less than a year already. As of the CPDs, you can check it on PRC website. They have the list there. Also, I think that the 2019 CPD units are still valid provided that you send them on or before your PRC appointment.

  • Donna

    Hello there.. I am here in Dubai and currently working.. I would like to ask how am I able to renew my PRC license directly all the way from here without the fuzz of asking my family or friends for SPAs or as my representative because of the pandemic? Is it possible or would there be any method that I could use? My license will expire next year, I wanted to process it as soon as possible because I am having a feeling that the process will really take longer time than before, again because of the pandemic.. Hope someone can answer my query and thank you so much in advance..

    • Matt

      Hi Donna, let’s wait for other commenters. Maybe they have tried it before.

  • dimple

    is it easy to renew without cpd units? according to the latest announcement, we can process without CPD until dec 2021. But will they required x2 unit ( 2021: 15 for not having cpd and another 15 for the for 2024)? or we will just leave the 15 units for 2021? thank you

    I am currently in the US and processing my CGFNS and part of it is license verification. My nursing license expired 2018 so I renewed my license online. I paid all the fees and have it shipped to my Philippine address. Is that all that I need to do? Just apply for renewal online then pay the fees then have it delivered? How long does it take to reflect online that my license is renewed/active?

    Hi! Can I renew my license without CPD points? My license expired on 2020 and im planning to renew my license this year. I tried to contact PRC branches but they cant be reached.

    • Madeline Cansino

      Yes. Until end of Dec2021.

      • Lester

        I had a problem on the CPD, there are no slots available for December since mid October. I was only allowed to renew on late October, the that you are allowed for early renewal. Is the CPD undertaking based on the appointment date?

  • Madeline Cansino

    Hello, I tried the email addresses you have provided for inquiries on CPD, but nothing of these emails work. Is there anyone of you who has tried to submit their earned CPD points online? I am opting to go for the delivery service but I need to send my CPD units before that.

    Hi po, tanong ko lang po, kung ang pipiliin ay shipping service does it mean di ko na po need magpunta sa PRC and mag intay nalang ako na dumating yung PRC ID ko? paano po ipapasa yung mga needed na document kung shipping service yung pipiliin?

    • Kc

      Exactly, they don’t have additional instruction on where to send the requirements, it’s almost a month and my PRC ID hasn’t handed over to the courier that is why my tracking number isn’t reflecting in the WEXPRESS website

    Hello sir Matt
    How will I follow up my situation? I applied for renewal online and via delivery. When I uploaded my photo in my prc profile I thought it is already ok as I submit proper photo but in the prc profile it does not show the pic and my miskate is I assume the photo was uploaded right so I proceed and pay the necessary fees, but after that its been a month that I am waiting for my license but it have not arrive yet. I checked my prc profile and to my surprise ir shows my picture but was zoom out of the frame…. So it comes to my mind maybe that is why they are not processing it, so I properly upload my photo again and it appears ok now. My dilema now is how will I know they will now procezz it after I figure out the problem.

    Your respone will be so much appreciated.Thank you!

    I’m living abroad and recently updated my passport to reflect my married name. My license is expiring in January 2022, can I just process both change of name and renewal at the same time? Since I’m not in the Philippines, I plan to have my sister do this process on my behalf. Appreciate any inputs you can provide if my suggested steps would work, thanks!

  • Lester

    May I ask a question, is the CPD Undertaking based on the appointment date? And Can I attend later than the appointment date?

  • Marilou


    I wanted to renew my PRC ID license. Will they ask me about my CPD? I just finished my J1 Teacher Program in the US for 4 years, and I am now in the Philippines. My license will expire next year in August 2021.

    Hello. Thank you a lot for this information. May I ask about the part of Lane Express for Senior Citizens. Does the person need to still fill out the online registration? Thank you.

  • Annie

    Yes, in my case my PRC ID was expired last feb. 2016 and I renew it last Dec. 2021…You only need to pay the charge…

    Hello po,

    Ang tanong ko po ay about sa change status ng PRC..
    3 months ago po ngpaprocess po ako sa isang processing about sa change status ko, then kahapon lng natapos at changed na sa PRC website. Then sabi ng processing na yong PRC ID na may married name ko na is another bayad daw yon, so I decided na ako nalang mg aasikaso.
    Any idea po kung anong transaction ang i-seselect ko dun, same as renewal po ba or yong duplicate?

    Thank you po sa sasagot.

    is the delivery service still available in september 2022? i cant find the option box asking yes or no for delivery

    • Matt

      I checked it now. Yes, it is available.

  • KC

    I have applied online and availed the shipping of PRC ID last September 12, 2022. I tracked my PRC using the tracking number posted at my dashboard. When I tried tracking my PRC WEXPRESS site says that my airbill number is unavailable and that it will only be available once PRC handed over my PRC ID to them. It’s almost a month, I contacted the courier and they’re just showing that it will take 30 days, I sent an email to PRC and they haven’t replied yet.

    How to renew the PRC license if cant log in online?

  • Erin

    Hiiii. This is really important. I hope somebody can give me an answer asap.

    So, I am to renew my PIC. I was supposed to go to the PRC Offsite Service Center I selected during transaction, on December 26, 2022. Yes, it was yesterday, and it was holiday. I had it booked prior to PBBM’s holiday declaration. I couldn’t go since the PRC OSC are closed during Local and National Holidays.

    What will I do with my PIC Renewal schedule? When will be the best day to carry on with my appointment? Should I really proceed to the next available date (today, December 27)? If so, my concern is, I also have an important business today.

    Can you please enlighten me with this? Or anyone? Please.

  • Ralph

  • Anita danganan

    I passed my LET last August 2014 but I didn’t have the chance to get my license due to personal reasons. What to do po kaya? Salamat

  • Margarette

    Hello, I have an appointment for PRC id renewal and was paid already. And then, reading your blog about renewal via courier service, I realized that I can save more if I chose that service before hand, given that I will be coming from the province to Manila. I wanted to cancel my current appointment, but it’s impossible. If I missed my appointment, can I select another transaction for renewal via courier service? I wanted to disregard my current appointment and willing to pay again for new transaction via courier, it will still cost me less and convenient for me. Thank you for your reply.
