IATF IDs still honored at checkpoints

The Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF) IDs issued by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) will continue to be recognized at checkpoints during the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ), according to the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT).

As the government transitions from the use of IATF ID to RapidPass ID, “all checkpoint personnel should still honor all issued IATF-IDs,” DICT said in an advisory.

RapidPass is an ID that may be applied for online by frontliners and essential workers to facilitate their passage through checkpoints in Metro Manila during the ECQ.

Also with the same purpose but issued by DTI in March was the IATF ID. DTI, however, stopped issuing the ID when RapidPass ID was launched on April 7.

Using QR code technology to fast track inspections and minimize person-to-person contact at checkpoints, RapidPass is a project of non-profit organization Developers Connect Inc. (DevCon) in partnership with the Department of Science and Technology and DICT. On April 20, the system was officially turned over to the RapidPass Coordination Council created by IATF. DICT has since taken over implementation of the system.

The QR code can be either printed or posted on the windshield or side door of users’ vehicles or be shown to checkpoint personnel on their mobile phones.

PLDT has provided checkpoint personnel with phones for use to scan RapidPass QR codes.

  1. Regarding with the issued IATF ID here in Cebu City. Can the holder use the ID to pass through check points going to South of Cebu? I mean can they use their company ID, COE and the IATF ID?

    • They should be able to do that. But take note: implementation is sometimes not uniform and may depend on checkpoint staff you encounter on any given day.

  2. Good day. Sir just want to know if iatf id honoured in going provincials area in North like Pangasinan? Or do we need to seek for travel pass?
