Finally, here it is! This is the most current post I have on PHILIPPINE PASSPORT RENEWAL procedures to date. Please take note that this post is only about passport renewal and NOT for those applying for the first time. If you are a first-time applicant and you need a bit more detailed info about the requirements, check out my posts here and here.
I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the system has improved quite a lot since the last time I renewed my passport. The DFA made the process simple and easy to follow, so a hat-tip is in order here. Let me show you how I did it:
STEP 1 – Make an appointment online HERE. This is how the form looks like.
STEP 2 – Click the “Start Individual Appointment Process” button and fill up the online Individual Application Form. You will be required to supply the following information.
STEP 3 – Select and confirm the date of your appointment after which you will receive a confirmation email with your filled up application form and reference number. Print these. You also need to bring the following documents. Although they didn’t ask me to submit everything, it’s better to have everything ready all the time.
Other Supporting Documents
Please bring the following if they are available. (I didn’t show them any of these.)
STEP 4 – Be at the DFA 30 minutes before your scheduled appointment.
STEP 6 – Present the online application you printed to the guard. He will check your reference number and direct you to the DFA staff who will verify your appointment.
Make sure you are waiting in the right designated area. Check your documents while you are waiting.
Lines are amazingly orderly and organized. People who looked lost were assisted promptly.
Huge thanks to the DFA staff and guards.
NOTE: While you are waiting the guard will remind you to have your documents photocopied. For renewal, the first and the last pages of your passport need to be photocopied. You can have your docs photocopied near Gate 1.
STEP 7 – Proceed to Door 3.
This is where your documents are evaluated and checked for completeness. Your old passport will
be canceled and you will be asked what type of processing you prefer. Regular processing is
P950.00 while Express processing is P1200.00.
STEP 8 – Proceed to the 2nd floor for payment.
STEP 9 – Get a number and wait for your documents to be encoded and your picture taken.
STEP 10 – Encoding and Picture Taking.
… AND YOU ARE FINISHED!
I arrived at 8:30am (an hour early for my appointment) and I was done by 9:30am (the time of my appointment)!
If you don’t want to pick up your passport yourself, you can just have it delivered to your house for P120.00 by 2GO. Just present your OR to the courier service located at the second floor, pay for the delivery fee, get your receipt and you are DONE. I had mine delivered because time is like us mint to me so a hundred twenty bucks is sooo worth it.
Here’s a little video from the DFA that you might want to see.
While inside the Enrolment Section…
Here are some Guidelines to be followed :
And it has no citizenship, no race, no color, no age group. It is not bound by country or continent or IP address. Just a loud, powerful, influential voice that can make the whole world know it has spoken. A voice that can influence current events and shake, make or break anything or anyone that tries to shackle it down or imprison it.
The days when you get imprisoned for saying something against any establishment or any political figure are slowly becoming a memory of the past. Today, you can express either your praise or adoration for anyone or anything, or cuss, curse, and use all the seldom used characters on your keyboard to give your 2 cents worth on the Top Headline for the day. SOPA and PIPA are shelved, give yourself a pat on the back and hand out the Padron. Or maybe not…yet.
This enormous POWER that’s been placed in our hands – the power to communicate in real time. To make our COLLECTIVE VOICES be heard as ONE to change our world’s landscape as we know it. This freedom to build our virtual Tower of Babel should be BUILT with words seasoned with salt, not to overpower it but to improve it’s taste.
Yes we are FREE. Free to speak our minds. Free to have our say. This is the generation we live in right now. However, this freedom could also usher in a new era and speed up what has been spoken of long ago – until it finally reaches the ends of the earth.
Yes, Virginia. There is no doubt that the Internet has a VOICE. The question is, what comes out of its heart, I mean, mouth.
