RapidPass ID offers easy checkpoint access for ECQ frontliners

RapidpassThe RapidPass, an online identification system to ease frontliners’ and essential workers’ passage through checkpoints in Metro Manila during the enhanced community quarantine period, has been launched and will be implemented on April 6.

The system, a project of non-profit organization Developers Connect Inc. (DevCon) in partnership with the Department of Science and Technology and Department of Information and Communication Technology, uses QR (Quick Response) code technology to fast-track inspections and minimize person-to-person contact at checkpoints.

“The RapidPass will be available to everyone but it will not be required. They can still choose to present IDs or documents. But this option will be available to those who want to pass through our checkpoints faster and want to reduce contact with others at checkpoints,” Cabinet secretary and Inter-Agency Task Force for Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF) spokesperson Karlo Alexei Nograles said.

He said the system will initially be available to workers already approved by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) as part of a skeletal workforce, those working in essential services, or those given media passes by the Presidential Communications Operations Office.

“Media, manufacturers, sila na nabibigyan na po ng accreditation ng DTI and other agencies—sila po ang unang gagamit ng RapidPass system natin [Media, manufacturers who are already being accredited by DTI and other agencies will be the first to use the RapidPass system],” Nograles said in a press briefing on April 3.

Medical workers and those transporting essential goods, while already being allowed to pass checkpoints with minimal interference, can still apply for a RapidPass, Nograles said.

The system will be available at all 56 checkpoints in Metro Manila but will be rolled out first in the busiest checkpoints, such as the one on the Marikina-Marcos Highway.

Users can apply online at RapidPass.ph or download the mobile application, and will receive a QR code in a few hours via email once application is approved. Rapid Pass applications can be by individual or by company.

“Companies may send a list for approval and be added into the approved database upon verification,” DevCon convenor Winston Damarillo said.

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

Telecommunications company PLDT has provided checkpoint personnel the phones to be used to scan Rapid Pass QR codes, Damarillo said.

  1. Hi Ma’am/Sir:

    Where to send the list of employees for bulk approval? Ex. Approval to avail rapid pass for drivers working in logistic companies.
    2. What are the requirements they need to submit? Do each personnel need to submit requirements?

    • The rules are not clear when it comes to your question. Rapidpass just says: “For bulk and company registration, please coordinate with your respective approving government agencies.”

      If you are a logistics company, that probably means DTI or DOTr. But we don’t know exactly which unit you can call to inquire. (The Rapidpass website does not say so either.)

      May we suggest that in the meantime, application be done individually?

  2. I’m a aircon technician maintenance in Rockwell mall we have daily maintenance in mall specially in food store and drugstore grocery how to apply to rapid pass

  3. Just to inquire about the DOLE cash assistance for radio broadcasters i am sending 8 emails to the email add of DOLE but they do not accept the reply is full. Thank you for your response. BEST105 FM RADYO ORIENTAL POLANGUI ALBAY

      • Hi Liza,
        Thanks for the info.
        But I try to apply and it’s registered.
        It was successfull.
        Do you mean I need to register again.

        Right now I check the site and It is on Maintenance. Maybe rapidpass sould do a double time to fully use this apps. Otherwise, ECQ will be lifted first, before this apps working.

        • Thank you for your inquiry. Kindly note PortCalls is not affiliated with RapidPass. Please direct your concern to them directly.

          But right off, we don’t think you need to register again if you already have done so. You will just have to wait for the RapidPass approval.

  8. Hi. It’s been 2 days already since I applied for a pass. I also emailed rapid pass with my concern regarding the application but I didn’t hear from them. I need to transport the fund to 4ps beneficiaries since they don’t have any access to atm machines. My outlet is located in a different municipality where I’m residing. They don’t have banks in the location and there are only few merchants offering cash withdrawal services. I need to travel tomorrow (monday).

    • Only RapidPass can definitively answer your question. Kindly note PortCalls is not affiliated with RapidPass.

      Take note though that RapidPass.ph is for individuals, companies and personnel needed for essential activities (e.g. first responders, front-liners, food suppliers, and assigned skeletal workforce in companies).

    • Ang RapidPass po ay para sa mga taong considered “Authorized Persons Outside Residence”, usually po mga workers na nagtatrabaho sa mga essential sectors. Ang pagkaka alam po namin hindi po maibibigay ang ID kung ang intention ay para makauwi lamang.

      Kindly note PortCalls is not affiliated with RapidPass.

    • Kindly note PortCalls is not affiliated with RapidPass. Kindly inquire with them directly.

      But as far as we understand, your sector may apply for a RapidPass.

  33. I don’t have iatf pass ID but I have a approve rapid pass qr code… Is it OK rapid pass only to present?

    • Kindly note PortCalls is not affiliated with RapidPass.

      But doctors are certainly essential workers; you can use even your basic ID to pass through checkpoints.

    • Kindly note PortCalls is not affiliated with RapidPass. Please inquire with them directly at inquiries@rapidpass.ph

      But based on the most recent list of Authorized Persons Outside Residences or APOR (these people are the ones who can apply for RapidPass ID), construction workers working on building homes are NOT on the list.

      But if you can find an alternate way then you may take that. There are no rules that say you should only pass through checkpoints.
