In Negros Occidental, PhilSys services were brought in various parts of Bacolod City. Residents of Purok Ceres and Purok Zone 7 in Barangay Handumanan, and Purok Lawayan in Barangay Banago were able to avail PhilSys services through the mobile efforts in their respective locations.

Children from Barangay Handumanan in Bacolod City, Negros Occidental were among the residents who were able to avail PhilSys services such as registration.

Children accompanied by their parents were among the residents who were able to register to PhilSys through the mobile registration activities, which included the use of PhilSys on Wheels. The issuance of ePhilID was also offered if the registration was confirmed successful.

The efforts yielded a combined total of 61 registrations and 64 ePhilID issuances.

Registered persons in the said locations were also provided assistance with tracking PhilID delivery, requesting the replacement of PhilIDs with peeled-off photos, and updating of demographic information, as part of its gradual implementation.
