Long city hall queues, piles of paperwork, and extended waiting periods could soon be a thing of the past for residents, entrepreneurs, and potential investors wanting to do business in Valenzuela City, Philippines.

As reported, an integrated permit application system called the 3S Plus Valenzuela City Online Services will provide a single platform for the application of permits and requests for documents.

This is the first and the fastest of its kind in the country, which spares applicants from the cost and time required of personal applications at the city hall.

Paspas Permit

  • With the City’s commitment to be in full compliance with RA 11032: the Ease of Doing Business (EODB) Act, the highlight of the system is the “Paspas Permit”, the 10-second business permit application system.
  • It allows the issuance of provisionary business permits within ten seconds after the payment confirmation.
  • Prior to this project, the issuance of business permits at the City Hall takes about 15 to 30 minutes.
  • The introduction of the Paspas Permit system will accelerate Valenzuela’s adoption of digital technology to streamline services for more than 18,000 businesses in the city.
  • Valenzuela City Mayor Rexlon T. Gatchalian explained that the new platform demonstrates the local government’s commitment to making services more efficient and innovative, which in turn can attract more investors and spur further development.
  • Digital tech, key to fostering growth in Valenzuela City
  • At this point, the adoption of digital technology has become essential to fostering growth.
  • The launch of 3S Plus Valenzuela City Online Services proves that the innovative use of new technologies is being leveraged for better, faster services to the constituents.
  • With the 3S Plus Valenzuela City Online Services, permit applicants can apply for the following documents and services:
  1. Renewal or Application of New Business Permits
  2. Building and Construction Permit application
  3. Real Property Tax (RPT) payments
  4. Requests for Certified True Copy of Tax Declaration, Tax Mapping Certificate, Certificate of Non-Improvement and Appraisal of Real Property
  5. Requests for Certified True Copy of Birth, Death, and Marriage Certificate, and Court Decision
  6. Actual business permits and documents can be delivered within three to five working days through W Express (formerly DHL Philippines) or Grab Express.
  • Payments, on the other hand, can be processed via Visa, Mastercard, debit cards, Bancnet or PayMaya.

How Does it Work?

Documentary requirements submitted through the platform are reviewed in real-time between 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM on Mondays to Fridays.

While those who applied beyond office hours shall be processed promptly the next morning.

Provisionary Building and Construction permits can also be obtained through the system within 10 seconds upon confirmation of payment.

A provisionary permit shall be sent to the applicant’s email, which will allow them to commence construction.

However, the applicant must submit the original documents to the Office of the Building Official (OBO) within 15 days, so they can get their actual permit.  Failing to do so will revoke their provisionary permit.

The Mayor shared how simpler and faster processes reflect good governance, which can be achieved through the 3S Plus Valenzuela City Online Services.
