Here is How to Renew Your PRC License Online 2020

PRC online renewal guide in 2020 for professionals in the Philippines and OFWs who will renew their license ID through the online services of the Professional Regulation Commission.

The full implementation of this online renewal system started back on September 1, 2018 in all PRC regional branches and satellite offices. This includes the One-Stop Service Centers for OFWs (OSSCO) / service centers. This new system allows online application, online appointment, and online payment for the renewal of license ID card.

You can access the PRC online 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 with 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 PRC accredited payment facilities.

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

Take note that the same photo will be reflected on your newly issued PRC ID which will be valid for 3 years. So, make sure that the photo you submitted shows how good looking you are.

There is a chance that your application will not be processed if the photo in your application does not resemble you. Your submitted photo has a different background other than the required plain white and has shadows. You are wearing eyeglasses and your ears are covered.

Step 4: Choose Renewal in the Selection of Transaction

In this part, you have to select the kind of transaction that you want to process. There are five choices which are Examination, Initial Registration, Renewal, Duplicate, and Certification.
Since you want to process the renewal of your PRC ID License, then you need to choose the “RENEWAL” tab. It is the one in the middle.
prc id renewal online

Choose your Profession, and input your PRC License Number. Double-check the details to minimize mistake and then “PROCEED.”

Step 5: Setting of Your Appointment and selection of PRC Office

In this part, you will need to select the PRC regional office/satellite offices where you will submit your printed/photocopied documents. Also, your chosen branch office is where you will collect your newly issued PRC License ID card.

Usually, the scheduled date and time are automatically assigned to you by the computer, however, you will be given a one-time chance to reschedule your appointment.

If you choose to “RESCHEDULE” then choose the new appointment date and state a valid reason. For example, you are an OFW and your date of arrival in the Philippines won’t match the given date and time of your appointment, then state it as your reason.

Appointment slots are free of charge so stay away from “fixers” that offer services to transact with Professional Regulation Commission on your behalf.
prc appointment free slotsPRC has no same-day appointment policy with this you need to set your appointment date in advance.

Step 6: Choose the PRC available Payment Options

After selecting the PRC Regional Office, the itemized fee will be reflected. There are fourth (4) payment options available for you. These are:

  • Over-the-Counter at PRC-Cashier (at your chosen regional office/service center)
  • Landbank ePayment / Bancnet / GCash (needs an existing account)
  • United Coconut Planters Bank (UCPB) Connect, UCPB App (needs an existing account), or through Over-the-Counter in UCPB branches (no need for existing bank account). Payment validation is within 2 to 3 working days.
  • PayMaya, starting June 28, 2019, PRC online services accepts payments via PayMaya using your debit and credit cards under JCB, Visa, Mastercard, and also through PayMaya account.

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 charge a Php30 service fee.

    Thanks for this one. I followed your guide to the letter. I have a question though, did they ask for your current PRC ID upon claiming the new one? I have an unexpired PRC ID which will expire in less than a year, but see, I lost it abroad a few months ago.

    • Matt

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

    • lyn

      I just want to find out if anybody here have an idea of renewing a PRC id that was expired for 5 months, what would be the process?

      Thank you

      • michal

        you can still renew it even if its expired.. In my case, i lost my license here in canada which was expired 2017, good thing i still have my old one. So i asked my relative to go to PRC in manila to ask if there is a different process for my case. PRC said that its ok as long as she still have the registration number.

        • Matt

          Thanks Michal for sharing!

          • Morena

            Hello good day.
            May i ask if i can send via email my printed renewal application form and ucpb receipt of payment to process my application. Thank you very much.

          • Matt

            Hi Morena, I have no idea because I haven’t tried that yet. Let’s wait for other commenters, maybe then can give you an idea.

        • Clare

          Hi my PRC license was expired since 2016, can I still renew it?.

            Hi Clare, Yes, it is still possible.

  • Larryfied

    Hi, thanks for the very informative guide. May I just ask, did they require you to submit certificates of trainings and seminars for CPD units completion? Thank you so much in advance!

    • Matt

      Hi Larry,

      Yes, though I think this depend on the profession. It would be better to inquire directly to PRC if you need cpd units and also how many units you need to acquire prior to your license renewal.

      • Jane

        Its my first renewal of prc id and have already got an appointment unfortunately, i lost my old id. Will there any conflict?

        • Matt

          Hi Jane,

          You do not need to present the old ID. PRC will not collect it.

    • Hedel

      How could i re schedule my appointment date? If we missed the day

  • Eric

    Hi. I just heard that you have to get your proof of cpd units(certificates,etc.) be validated at the PICC branch office before submitting. please enlighten me. thanks

    • Matt

      Hi Eric,

      Based on my experience I did not do that. I did not go to PICC to have my certificates with indicated number of cpd units be validated in PICC.

  • Gladys Mae Pascua Lerios

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

      • 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.

        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!

  • lian

  • 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?

    • Matt

      Hi Jay,

      The central office is the one in Morayta. Its address is P. Paredes Street in Sampaloc, Manila 1008. You can determine if the slots are full on a specific date when you set an appointment online at LERIS website.

  • 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!


    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!

  • cecilia ramos

    a reliable source told me that cpd units are not required for renewal until Dec. Can I claim my ID without it? Can I send a representative to claim it in case I wouldn’t be available? thanks so much

    • Matt

      Hi Cecilia,

      You can inquire directly to PRC about your concern at prc.helpdesk2 or visit any PRC office. Good luck!


    what if after registering you forgot your email and password? I cant sign in even if tried to put my email and paswword.

    • Matt

      Hi Marjorie,

      You need to send an email to prc.helpdesk2 or visit any PRC office near you.

  • Ana

    Do I need to create 2 accounts if I have to renew 2 ID also?

    • Matt

      If its different IDs from 2 different persons, then you need to create two different accounts.

  • shaneen

    I already had a scheduled appointment at PRC but decided to cancel due to my work schedule. I didn’t expect the next available schedule would go beyond my expiry date. Would it still be possible to push through with the schedule I had cancelled?

  • Ia

    Hi, I hope you can help me. I lost my PRC license 2015. I never practised my nursing career and now I am thinking about starting it. Can I still renew my license and file it as lost?

    • Matt

      It is still possible to renew your ID as long as you still know your PRC license number.

      • Jon Manalo

        Hi Matt just a quick question in ticking the box affixing your signature, I just ticked that box and did not do any signature for online delivery, does that complete it? It went through.

    • Matt

      Hi Diane, when you go to the PRC office prior to your scheduled time, you are walking in. PRC does not accept walk-in applicants.

    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.

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

    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.

  • 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?

  • 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.

    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. ?

    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?

      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.

    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!

  • 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.

  • 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?
    If so, what do I need to bring?

    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.

  • SMFR

    I would like to clarify lang po sir/ma’am,
    first time renewal, this august 2020 ang expiration ng id licence k, required po pa ba talaga may cpd units?

  • Annie

    Hi, my license will expire on July 5 but my appointment for renewal is on July 6. Will I be able to renew my license?

    • Matt

      Hi Annie, yes based on experience you can still renew your prc license even though it got expired prior to renewal.

  • 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!

  • 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?

  • Henrietta Urbano

    Thanks Matt for a very helpful guide and for your patience in answering their questions
    but they overlook the fact that you are not an employee of PRC but a blogger who want to help and share your experiences.God bless you for your kind heart.

    • Matt

      Hi Henrietta,

      Thank you for your appreciation. God bless you also.

  • PJ

    I wonder po when you shot the video? Kakabaliw eh, I tried to set and appointment today (22 JULY 2020) and ang available slot na is sa NOVEMBER — hehe moment na lang. Pilipinas kong mahal… hay.

    • Matt

      HI PJ pwede nyo check yung video on what to do when there is no slot available. Baka po makatulong kahit papaano.

  • Clyde

    Hi my licenses expire on October, I went on online and checked that PRC Bacolod has closed slots for the entire 2020. What’s the best course of action for this? I need my licenses since these are my only source of income. Thank you.

  • 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.

    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…

    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.

    • 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!

  • 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?

  • 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.
