If you are an engineer, a doctor, a nurse or a professional in the Philippines; then I am sure that you visited the office of Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) to to renew your registration. Renewing your professional license can be an inconvenience, especially if you have to file a leave of absence just to renew. Going to the PRC can be less of a bother if you know what to expect when you are renewing  your professional license.

For those who are renewing their professional license, please read the regular procedures for professional license renewal. If you in the rush of renewing your license, please read the procedures in applying for Express ID. Before going to the PRC, decide which procedure you want to use because each procedures caters for different needs of professionals.
PRC License ID back

If you are one of those who are renewing their license, then the following tips will be helpful to you:

Tip # 1: Apply for PRC License Renewal at the Malls

PRC offices are usually filled with applicants for new PRC License and those who are renewing their license. Also, these offices are only open during weekdays so you are forced to take a "leave of absence" from work just to renew your license. The good news is that you can renew your professional license at the PRC Renewal Centers located at selected SM Malls. These centers are open 7 days a week (including Saturday and Sunday) during mall hours. Read more about the PRC Renewal Centers at malls on my blog post.

Tip # 2: Don't go to PRC during registration of nurses

The nursing profession is one of the professions that has the most number of professionals in the Philippines. I suggest that you avoid going to the PRC during the board exam registration of nurses because PRC office is usually jam packed during those times. I usually see the queue of nurse registrants reach the sidewalks of Espana Boulevard. The large number of people will make it hard for you to move around the PRC office.

Tip # 3: Bring the All the Requirements

The requirement for renewing your professional license are:

1. Application form (PRC Reg Form 003) that can be obtained from the Information Window near the entrance get in PRC central office. The form can also be downloaded from the PRC website (PDF).

2. Two pieces of passport size picture (3.5 cm by 4.5 cm). The picture should be a close-up of your face and  colored. The background should be plain white. A complete name tag should be placed at the bottom part of the picture.

3. Photocopy of your recent professional license ID. In case of lost ID, you must provide PRC with an affidavit of loss. If the ID is destroyed, then you must surrender the destroyed ID to the PRC.

Tip # 4: Obtain “Certificate of Good Standing” from your profession's organization

When I first went to the PRC, the clerk don't want to accept my application and told me to go to my accredited organization of my profession to obtain a certificate of good standing. I suggest that you ask your professional organization if you need this certificate before going to the PRC.

Tip # 5: Bring your own photo

There are photo booths located inside the PRC central office. I don't recommend these photo booths because their picture, which they take using a webcam, is crappy. Four pieces of passport size picture, with “free” ID card holder, cost about 80 pesos. Please take note that you only need one photo when you are renewing your license.

What I did is that I made my own passport size photo using Photoshop. I followed the photo requirement of PRC and typed a name tag at the bottom. The format of the name tag is: [your surname], [your given name] [your middle name]. You can print your picture at photo printing shops for as low as 30 pesos.

You don't need to bring your own photo if you are renewing your professional license through the Express ID. PRC's Megadata Office will take the picture, which will be used for your ID.

Tip # 6: Bring enough money

My professional license just expired, so I paid 450 pesos. Expect to pay more than 450 pesos if your license is expired for more than a year because PRC gives penalty to professionals who defer the renewal of their license. There is an additional fee for those who are renewing through Express ID.

Tip # 7: Avoid dealing with fixers

I did not encounter any fixers when I renewed my professional license. The transaction in the PRC is fast, which made fixers irrelevant. However, be conscious of possibility that there are some a people who may trick you when you are t the PRC. I suggest that you only transact with PRC employees.

Renewing your PRC license is an inconvenience but not uneasy. Following the tips that I posted here will make your license renewal faster and easier.

    Hello. Thank you for this very helpful blog.
    I am to renew my brother's license, soon, and I just would like to verify the picture with complete name tag--I thought the licensee must be holding the name tag personally--and not digitally enhanced. But since the article indicated you did resolved to this, then it follows that PRC is not so strict about it?
    Thank you very much. Please reply on my email soon, it is saigone_turro@yahoo.com.
    More Power!

  2. Ishmael Fischer Ahab May 21, 2012 at 8:34 AM  

    Hello Saigone.

    What the PRC actually needs is a passport sized photo with the name of the licensee at the bottom of the photo. So, it is OK if the name of the licensee is just placed on the photo using any-photo editing software.

    The photo-booths inside the PRC also do the same.

  3. writer May 24, 2012 at 9:41 PM  

    Very helpful tips!
    I'm applying not to renew my license, but for my first-time application for the LET.
    I tried looking for sample photos of the passport size picture with the complete nametag at the bottom, but unfortunately was not able to find one.
    I am glad that you provided a description of the photo. I am familiar with Photoshop and can edit my own picture.
    Is it possible to request for a sample picture (either in this thread or via my e-mail)? (I'm nervous about the format). I'm sure a lot of others are curious as to how this custom passport photos look like.
    Thank you! :)

    Do we still need "Certificate of Good Standing" for renewing a nurses' license? If so, how do I obtain them?

    Is express form of licensing offered to every PRC branches in the country? and last question, how long does it usually take for an express delivery to have a license ready?

  33. Ishmael Fischer Ahab December 23, 2012 at 8:34 PM  


    You need to go back to PRC to request for another copy of your professional license. What you need is an "affidavit of loss" to get the duplicate of your license.


    Hello. Please ask the board of nursing if they require "Certificate of Good Standing" for license renewal.

    Is there any way that I can find out what my license number is? I lost my PRC ID (my wallet was stolen), and was trying to accomplish the requirements needed in order to have it replaced. I had acquired an Affidavit of Loss, and was about to fill out the PRC form (Form 003) when I found out that the license number is needed. I do not have a photocopy nor photo of my license (big mistake on my part), and the Verification Service on the PRC website can only tell you if the person is licensed or not, and not the license number.

    A reply would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time. :)

  39. Ishmael Fischer Ahab January 14, 2013 at 1:39 PM  

    Hello Kristina

    What you can do is to call the PRC to get your PRC license number. Or, much better is that you go to PRC office to get that number

    The PRC might be district and will not provide information via telephone.

    Bring Government IDs when you go to PRC. They will require a valid identification to ensure that you are the person who own the license number and not someone who is fishing for info.

    HI there !
    Ur info. is very informative, I got a feedback from my mother that a renewal at this moment costs me a month release? She said it was a chaos in PRC, and info. from 1 window to the other is incorrect. She even asked for an express lane for the PRC renewal of license...but there was no express lane??? Then i read somewhere that from March 4 this year it had been approved ??? which is which?

    all my papers were already authenticated way back in '96 but due to the fact that i neglected to renew my license, i did pay my due penalty... i'm just sad to know this specially when i'm living and working more than 12 years outside Phil. and needed my verification form for my new job :(

    I haven't tried renewing my license in a PRC office in SM Malls. I hope other commenters will share their experiences.

    One thing that the commenters complained about PRC offices in the malls is that it took more than a month for them to get thier license.

    I think you can scan the authorization letter. You must make sure that the scanned copy will be clear.

    You also need to send your passport sized photo. You can also send the photo via email.

    Anonymous May 22

    You can still claim you license even if you lost the claim stub. There's no penalty but you'll take more steps because you have to prove your identity by showing a valid ID.

    More than a year mo na pala di nakuha yang PRC license mo. Posible na idinispatsa na ng PRC yan.

    Maganda mong gawin ay tawagan mo ang PRC at tanungin mo sa kanila kung anong nagyari sa ID mo.

    Renewing the PRC license should be easy at all times regardless if it happens during the registration of nurses or whichever profession. Last time I went there in Dec 2012 it was horrible. I think they can speed up the process by removing some of the steps. The queue was just horrible and if they can tolerate giving that kind of service I think they are just as incompetent as any typical government office who has the mindset that "you people need something from us so shut up and queue for one day 'cause we don't care!"

    You can still renew your PRC license kahit 5 years nang expired yan. In fact, meron akong kaibigian na 5 years na ring expired ang license niya pero na-renew nya pa.

    Pwede pang mag-renew kahit 6 years nang paso yung PRC license mo. Regarding naman sa refresher course, I suggest that you ask the PRC about it.

    hello sir for ofw like me who did not renew prc license for more than 5 years but working abroad as a nurse is it considered for ofw not to take refresher course... they must give considerations for registered nurses who are actively working abroad as ofw. Thanks and God bless.

    I don't know the answer to your question. I suggest that you call the Nurse Association directly.

    You can still apply for PRC license.

    Hi! Do i need to submit affidavit of loss for my lost and expired teacher's license/ID? Or is it only required if valid pa yung ID? Please advise. Thanks.

  179. Ishmael Fischer Ahab July 16, 2015 at 2:06 PM  


    Affidavit of loss is required if you are asking for a replacement PRC ID just in case that you lost your ID.

    You can renew your license next year but subject to penalty. As for the requirements, I suggest that you read this post because it has details on the requorements and other things when renewing your PRC license.

    Hi! i am currently in the UK and i wanted to renew my nursing license, my license expired last 2012 and until now i haven't renew yet. my question can i just send a scanned documents to my parent in philippines and they will just going to print and submit to prc? and also how much is the penalty per annum?.. thank you for you time to reply..

  183. Ishmael Fischer Ahab September 20, 2015 at 12:33 AM  


    I think you can send the scan copy for the renewal of your license. I cannot give you the penalty amount per annum because I do not know it. I suggest that you directly ask PRC about it.

    Hi.can i still claim my prc id which i renewed last august 2015? Its almost 3 months now and i havent claimed it yet plz reply

  185. Ishmael Fischer Ahab November 20, 2015 at 3:34 PM  

    Naku Ella. Malamang na-forfeit na yang ID mo kasi mag-3 months na. Mas mabuti pa tawagan mo yung PRC office para ma-confirm kung ano na ang nagyari sa ID mo.

    Pwede po ba mag change ng signature? Ano po kaya procedure?

  187. Ishmael Fischer Ahab April 6, 2016 at 12:01 AM  


    Mas mabuti po na sa PRC nyo na lang po itanong yang tanong nyo.

    Hi! I have a pending ethics case with PRC, actually it's been more than a year since nung final hearing and up to now, wala pa din akong na-re-receive na resolution about the case. Anyway, my license has expired and I need to renew it and I just want to ask if do you think it would help if I get a "certificate of good standing" from PRC para makuha ko license ko. Based from experience kase, I'm still able to get the COGS kahit may pending case pa din ako kaso sabe nung kasama ko sa ethics case e nahirapan daw siya to renew yung ID niya last year and buti na lang may kakilala sila sa loob ng prc to help him. I know this is not your forte but I just need a 3rd party opinions. Thank you so much!

    Hi. I don't know how to answer your question. Maybe you can ask your friend na tulungan ka mag-renew ng license. I am not sure if COGS will help you since you already have a ethics case record with the PRC.

    Hi, does anyone know if I can still renew or get a new ID license card if If I'm not a practicing nurse since 2001? What should be the requirements to be able to get a new license,I lost my old one too. Thanks

  192. Gary Cruz December 8, 2016 at 10:53 AM  

    Hi,I wonder if its still possible for me to renew and acquire a new license.I lost my card few years ago and didnt bother to get a new one as I'm not a practicing nurse since I migrate in Canada,its been 15 years now. thanks
