How do I apply? (New customers)

We're excited to welcome you to Tala!

Applying for the first time is fast and easy! Just follow these steps:

  1. Download the Tala app from Google Play using your own Android smartphone (OS4 and up)
  2. Sign up with your Philippine mobile number and create your PIN — never share this with anyone!
  3. Fill out the application form and submit photos of 1 valid ID for identity verification. 

We will review your application and notify you once it has been approved so remember to keep your notifications enabled.

Security Tip:

  • Apply and submit personal details only through the official Tala app.
  • Don't download the app from unauthorized platforms or suspicious links.
  • Tala will never contact you via Facebook, Messenger, or from a gmail, yahoo, or an outlook email.
  • Tala will never ask you to make a downpayment to apply or to cash out.
  • Tala will never ask you to share Tala account PIN.
