How To Apply For A Philippine Postal ID Using Your Married Name

I've been recently married, and one of the ID's that I can instantly apply for is the PHL Postal ID. I've never applied for one before, so it was timely for me to get the newly improved version using my new surname. And so last month, I applied at Allimall in Cubao since the closest branch from our house went through some technical issues at the time of my visit.

PHLPost will no longer release old versions of the postal ID (the laminated ones), as they've opted to change the material of the card to avoid illegal printing. According to PHLPost, added security measures have been instilled in the ID to further secure the integrity of one's identity and to eliminate fraudulent transactions. The Improved Postal ID has been infused with improved physical and biometrics-based security features such as the QR code (which also shows a hologram and ghost image), and the Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS). It is now accepted as a valid government-issued identification document.

"Ride to the dawn of Travel Revolution" at The World Travel Expo 2016

The World Travel Expo will kick-off this year with an exciting theme called, “Ride to the dawn of Travel Revolution”. The event, which will be organized by Ad Asia Conventions & Exhibitions International Corp, will showcase around 150 booths, several of which will be promoting both local and international goods and services. 

The first World Travel Expo, which will be held from October 7 to 9, at the SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia (Function Room 5) will also consist of travel and tourism-related conferences, workshops and activities. Various forums will also be conducted throughout the event such as the "Inbound and Outbound Tourism Forum". The conference will aim to encourage travelers to explore outside of their motherland, which in return, will help another country's tourism and economy. Moreover, prominent speakers (those from renowned travel organizations in the Philippines) will be sharing their expertise and insights about the travel industry and its growth over the years. Sounds pretty exciting, right?
