Suppose you already filed for a renewal and change of status of your professional identification card at the Professional Regulation Commission local office, but you left the country even before acquiring the new card because the releasing date takes months. You can’t even wait for it anymore.
This is actually my experience. I did the application a month after my wedding. It was December 2015 and I was told to come back after 6-9 months. I won’t deny I was a bit taken aback. How come it takes that long? Seriously? I’m not ranting, okay? Just asking. 😀 I certainly hope this will change. I believe it’s possible to get things like this done quickly because I’ve experienced acquiring a substantial ID here in Japan in just 2-3 minutes. You can read about it here.
I had no choice but to leave without that card. Guess what? After more than 9 months, I finally got it. It’s just a shame to waste a year without it in my possession. It’s only valid for 3 years and now it’ll only be valuable until next year.
Anyhow, I’m still thankful for having to claim it in a not so difficult procedure which I’ll gladly share with you.
1. Through a professional ID non-holder representative.
What you must prepare:
*If you are in Japan, you can visit the Philippine Embassy to avail this service. Please visit their website and read the announcement on this first.*
2. Through a professional ID holder representative.
What you must prepare:
Your representative should present his/her professional ID and may be asked to provide a photocopy of it. Just prepare.
Fortunately, I have a brother who’s also a registered professional and I was spared the burden of securing the Special Power of Attorney. I only prepared the letter instead.
