It includes your personal information, and a 1×1 picture attached on it .After filling up, the applicant will submit it to the Barangay administration. If the applicant has no any bad record in the barangay then the administrator will approve their Barangay clearance. Lastly the applicant will pay P26.50 for cedula and only donation for Barangay clearance.

Once the system has been developed, the residents can go online for their reservation of time and date for cedula and Barangay clearance services, instead of doing the old walk-in system. They need first to register and then they are going to fill up the computerized form of Barangay clearance and cedula. If the residents have no any bad record in the Barangay he/she will be approved by the Barangay administrator through online. After having their appointment they will just go to the Barangay Hall on the specific date of their appointment to get their Barangay clearance and cedula.
