The Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT), in coordination with other relevant government agencies, is tasked to oversee the implementation of the RapidPass System to fast track movement and access at designated checkpoints. With RapidPass, accredited frontliners and authorized personnel can simply flash their unique QR codes, reducing unnecessary physical contact.
The DICT is encouraging all accredited frontliners and authorized personnel to coordinate with their corresponding organizations on how to apply for a RapidPass.
As of now, RapidPass is only operational in the National Capital Region (NCR).
As part of the RapidPass implementation, the personal data collected will be used solely for the processing of RapidPass applications. To know more about how the data is collected, used, and protected, please see the RapidPass Privacy Notice at https://dict.gov.ph/rapidpass-data-privacy-policy/. All government and private organizations applying for RapidPass are enjoined to orient their concerned workforce about the Privacy Notice.
