How to get a Passport in DFA, Pampanga – Latest Procedures, Requirements

Getting a passport is easier and more convenient nowadays especially after the online application feature was launched. Since I’m from Pampanga, I am sharing here how I got my passport from DFA, Robinsons Starmills, Pampanga together with the latest requirements and procedures. It took me only an hour to finish the process. I recommend you download and print the passport application form in advance so you can fill it up at home before going to DFA. The requirements are listed at the back of the form.

Note that the former DFA office located at the Central Terminal is not operating anymore and all passport services and applications are now being served at the new office of the Department of Foreign Affairs Region 3 in Robinsons Starmills Mall, Pampanga near SM City, Pampanga.

All passport issued by the DFA are now called ePassports (aka electronic passports)

The new Philippine passport has electronic chip which stores the holder’s info, fingerprints and the like

The DFA passport online application is currently only for those DFA Aseana Blvd. appointments and some DFA SM branches in Manila. I think DFA will implement a nationwide service for the online appointment system soon. I hope we can all access status enquiry and update passport application online soon too. With today’s technology, I think this service will be coming sooner.

Tips to have a fast passport appointment done:

  • Download the passport application form (download it here) and fill it out at home before you go to DFA
  • Prepare your requirements and photocopy them
  • Go to the DFA office as early as 6 a.m. to avoid long line and queue

Passport Requirements for New Applicants

  • Personal Appearance
  • Dully accomplished application form
  • NSO Authenticated Birth Certificate (original and photocopy)

  • NSO Authenticated Birth Certificate (original and photocopy)

Procedures in getting a passport in DFA, Pampanga

Go to DFA Pampanga located at the 2nd Floor Robinsons Starmills (Arayat Gate). If you arrived so early before the mall opening, find the line at the back of the mall.

Once the processing starts, you’ll see the number of passport applicants being served for the day on the digital screen in front of the DFA entrance. Wait for your turn. The first part of passport processing is having your application form checked and verified for any discrepancy or incomplete details. Your requirements will also be checked.

Part 2 of the passport application process is having your personal information encoded, your photo being captured, your fingerprints scanned and your signature printed. After that, you’re done.

They will give you your receipt back which contains the release date of your passport. Attend on the given date by bringing the receipt and your valid IDs.

Congrats! You now have your Philippine Passport which you can use to travel overseas and apply for a visa. Take care of your passport as you take care of your life. Our passports are also considered as valid ID.

    • Fehl says

      All I know is they issue the passport on the date written on your claiming slip. I don’t have idea if we could expedite it. Perhaps you can talk directly to the manager of DFA Pamp. if you badly need it this Oct.

      • gieane says

        • Marifel Dungo says

          Regular processing right now is 15 working days while Rush/express processing is 7 days to all DFAs. I think they are also open during Sat. those who have appointments. It depends to number of applicants. Madami nagpapaapppoint pero now nadagdagan nadin DFA offices that allow appointments

  12. rogel says

    pwede b early renewal khit 1 yr p valid
    kc ito sabi ng embasy ng canada o….
    Note that a work permit and the accompanying visa cannot be issued beyond the validity of your passport. Therefore if your passport is expiring before the end of your work period, we recommend that you obtain a new passport before applying.
    Attach old passports showing previous travel.

    • Marifel Dungo says

      Yup we are allowed to renew our passports before the expiration date especially if we travel frequently or we work as OFWs. Many embassies require at least 6 months of validation prior to travel. You can also renew it even if it’s 1 year before expiration. It’s very reasonable

  13. Nina Alyssa Tubig says

    Hi! I’d like to ask sana if i’d be able to apply for renewal if expired na passport? Mine is valid until November 9 2013 nalang. And i think(?) I have to apply pa for an original copy of my NSO birth certificate before I can renew.. Is it okay if i apply for renewal kahit photocopy lang ng NSO birth certificate and alumni ID lang dala ko? Or will it be better if I apply for a new NSO copy muna then renew my passport kahit expired na? Will that require me to pay extra?

    Hope you can reply… Don’t wanna get caught in the queue just to find out that i don’t have enough supporting docs. Hihi! :)

    • Marifel Dungo says

      For first-time passport applicants, they require the original NSO birth certificate because they’re gonne get it for their filing. For renewal, they don’t require original anymore. When I applied for renewal, they just checked my photocopies of NSO birth certificate, valid IDs and photocopy of my old passport including signature page and some pages. If you don’t have enough IDs, you must provide enough supporting docs. Since you only have one ID and it’s Alumni pa, bring extra docs listed on their supporting docs (see back of application form).

      There is no extra charge I know of if passport is already expired upon renewal. My dad’s passport has been more than 15 years expired when he renewed and he only paid for processing fee of P950

    • Marifel Dungo says

      -Personal appearance of the minor applicant
      -Personal appearance of either parent (if minor is a legitimate child) / of mother (if minor is an illegitimate child)
      -Original Birth Certificate of minor in Security Paper issued by NSO or Certified True Copy of Birth Certificate issued by the Local Civil Registrar and duly authenticated by NSO. Transcribed Birth Certificate from the LCR is required when entries in NSO Birth Certificate are blurred or unreadable. Report of Birth duly authenticated by NSO is required if minor was born abroad.
      -Document of identity with photo, if minor is 8-17 years old (for first time and renewal applicant) such as School ID or Form 137 with readable dry seal
      -For minor applicants who never attended school, a Notarized Affidavit of Explanation executed by either parent (if minor is a legitimate child) / by mother (if minor is an illegitimate child) detailing the reasons why the child is not in school, is required
      -Marriage Certificate of minor’s parents duly authenticated by NSO
      -Notarized Affidavit of Support and Consent to travel from either parent (if minor is a legitimate child) / from mother (if minor is an illegitimate child)
      -Original and photocopy of valid passport of the person traveling with the minor
      -Photocopy of valid passport of either parent (if minor is a legitimate child) / of mother (if minor is an illegitimate child) or identification documents (Please refer to List of Acceptable IDs)

      Yeah I think every government office has special lane for senior citizens, pregnant women, and disabled persons. Just ask the lane for senior citizens

  14. Ronald miranda says

    Ask k0lang po this c0ming friday i want to go to the dfa pamp,,pwde n kya ung requirements q…p0stal id.,nso,nbi abr0ad, brgy clearance and p0lice clearance…pls reply asap

    • Marifel Dungo says

      Hi there. I think you can proceed if the docs you mentioned are all valid and not expired. Bring your college yearbook too in case Postal ID is not accepted or check the list of acceptable supporting documents listed at the back of the application form you downloaded. Bring original and photocopies of your documents except yearbook. Good luck!

  15. rogel says

    gud am po maam pag complete na po ang requirements ko para mag apply ng work permit sa canada pwede ko po ba i apply in person sa embassy ng canada di ko po alam kasi kung saan at masyado rin mahirap para sakin pag online application.maraming salamat po

      I know application of visa in Canadian Embassy is done online and via call center. I prefer the online way because it’s easier.

  16. Wilda says

    • Marifel Dungo says

      Right now there is no online appointment yet for Pampanga. Passport online appointment available are for DFA Aseana, DFA Megammall, DFA Manila, DFA Alabang and DFA Galleria only

    • Marifel Dungo says

      There is nothing to sign at the back. It only shows the lists of requirements so I think it’s ok if you don’t wanna print it.

  21. Japhet Ray Alvero says

  38. Ms. J says

    Hi there,

    Thanks for this informative post. I’m glad I came across your blog :) Anyways, I am looking to renew my expired passport this week and I’m wondering if I already have enough documents needed for renewal. I wanna make sure I’m all prepared before going to DFA Rob. So I hope you could help me on this.

    I have here my SSS ID, VOTERS ID, BIR ID, NSO BC Photocopy , and the original copy of my marriage Contract from NSO. However, I don’t have the originally copy of my (NSO BC) – Do I still need to get a certified NSO copy of my BC ? Also, I do not have a Brgy. Clearance , is it okay or do I need to get that as well?

    Please advise.

    Thanks,
    Ms. J

    • Marifel Dungo says

      For renewal, they don’t take the original NSO BC anymore. I remember I just submitted a photocopy of all my docs – old passport, UMID card, Voter’s ID and NSO Birth Certificate and it was all good :) Cheers! For NEW APPLICANTS, they really need and take the original NSO BC

  39. Tin Santos says

    Hi, Ask ko lang po.. kasi yung younger cousin ko nagscribble ng asterisk lower right part ng first page ng passport ko where the infos are. Will my passport be invalidated po ba? I’m planning on renewing my passport kahit sa 2017 pa ang expiration. So to be clear, my questions are, Will my passport be invalidated? Can I renew my passport na kahit sa 2017 pa ang expiration? I’m hoping that you could answer my questions. Thank you in advance.

      • Tin Santos says

        I’m currently a college student po and the IDs I have are my college ID and a Postal ID. Yung College ID ko pa walang pirma ko kasi ganun po yung design ng school ID namin. will it be okay po ba or do i have to get other supporting documents pa?

    • Marifel Dungo says

      If minor is not traveling with either parent:
      -DSWD Clearance (original and photocopy)
      -Affidavit of Support and Consent from parents indicating the name of the traveling companion (must be authenticated by the nearest Phil. Embassy or Consul)
      -Special Power of Attorney (authenticated by Phil. Embassy or Consul designating the representative by name and authorizing him to apply for a passport on behalf of the minor
      -passport or valid IDs of the traveling companion

    • Marifel Dungo says

      Please read the article. If you have the primary requirements, no need for NBI clearance in getting passport. But for the company you will apply, you need the clearance

  50. Rosemarie says

    Good afternoon po
    My tanong lang po ako,kung sakali po ba n mag punta s dfa ng wlang appointment eh nkkakuha ng passport?
    Tnx po

    • Marifel Dungo says

      Sa Pampanga walang appointment, first-come-first-served basis sila. Sa Manila, they require appointments

  51. shiela says

    good nun poh ask ko lang po if magrenew ako ng passport naun ganu ktagal poh bago ko mkuha ung passport? 45 days lng kse ang vacation ko d2 sa pinas makuha ko kya un bgo ako umalis? tnx po

    • Marifel Dungo says

      Get your passport for rush/express processing. It only takes 7 working days to receive it. It costs P1200 only

  52. Cathy says

    Gud day po.Mam ask ko lang po if ano requirments ang kailangan ng mga anak ko para makuhanan ko sila ng passport?7yrs old tska 9mos ung isa.Kailangan pa po ba ng DSWD permit to travel if ako naman po ang kasama nilang aalis?It’s my first time also to apply for a passport.Sana po malaman k ASAP.THANK’S

    • Marifel Dungo says

      The requirements are mentioned in the article. For minors, personal appearance of the child and one of the parent. DSWD Clearance is needed if the child is NOT traveling with the parent

      • Regina says

        Mam ask ko lang kung pwedeng kumuha ng lost passport sa DFA Pampanga. Yung kasing passport ng anak ko na 7 years old nawawala. I have my complete requirements kaya lang yung nakuha kong appointment sa Manila sa March 18 pa which is masyadong matagal. Sa Pampanga ko rin naman nakuha yung passport nya dati. Unfortunately, nawala ko nga. Please help. Thanks
        Regina

  53. sarah says

    mam gudeve po. ask ko lang po if makukuha ko pa din po ba ang passport ko the day after po ng araw ng release nito?
    ang release po kc ay march 12 ah balak ko po siyang kunin ng march 13.

    • Marifel Dungo says

      Yeah I think that’s not a problem as long as you have the receipt and valid ID. Wag mo lang paabutin ng 6 months :)

      • van dorren mark silva says

    • Marifel Dungo says

      I suggest you fix first your baby’s birth certificate by providing the correct father details. You will have big problems kasi in the future if may mali at kulang sa birth certificate since lahat ng IDs and documents nag-babase sa birth certificate. It is a very important document

      • mary joy says

        Nd cu na po kc alm kng asan na ung tatay ng baby cu .. Pero sa birth sertificate nia sa father dateils .. Wula po tlgang nkalagai .. Mgkakapoblema pa dn po ba acu dun ? Thanks po

  59. jellie nicolas says

    Kukuha q po sna ung mother and father q ng passport ..ok npo b ung nso, nbi clearance, postal id, police clearance, and barangay clearance …

    • Fehl says

      Dont they have other IDs? Try to apply if you have the requirements you mentioned here, if they are valid and accepted, then that would be fine. :)

  60. margie malveda says

  61. April says

  62. Joan Asiao says

    I find your blog very useful mam! Thank you :) Planning to go to Dfa pamp by Friday lucky me I spotted this.

  63. mae says

    pag po ba kumuha ng passport ano ano pa po inaasikaso sa dfa at that day? Denideliver lang din po ba yung passport or babalikan pa sa dfa pag na release?

    • Fehl says

      Please read the article to know the procedures. The released of passport can be picked up or delivered if there is a service in the DFA branch for passport delivery.

  64. nicz jose says

    gudeve poh… ask q lng poh kc poh ang real name poh ng father q Alberto.. pero nkalagai dun s marriage contract nila Albert.. kya un ndin poh naklagai sa NSO at BC q… ok lng poh kya nah un ndin gamitin q sa pagkuha ng passport…

    • Fehl says

      DFA Pampanga in Robinsons Starmills is open every Monday to Saturday.

      Monday – Friday: 10 am to 7 pm
      Saturday 10 am to 6 pm

  65. John Michael says

    Good day mam!

    Ask ko lang po. My problem po ang nso ko my kulang n letter s surname ko. In process plng po sya sa nso. Pwede p kaya akong makakuha ng passport with special power of attorney? To follow nlng yung corrected nso ko? Thanks

    • Fehl says

      That’s a very new case I’m not familiar with. I suggest you go to DFA personally to ask about that. But in my opinion, they won’t allow “to follow” stuff like that.

  66. Joaquin Bustamante says

    Good Day Ms. Fehl!
    First of all I would like to say that you are a very good hearted person and to thank you for all of your help and assistance and contributions to our fellow Filipinos..God Bless! and Kampay!
    Now this is my question ( I know you will find it a stupid question but I just want a confirmation )..Is tha NBI clearance a requirement to have for Passport renewal?

    Thanks for your help with this,
    Jun

    • Fehl says

      Thank you for the kind words. :) NBI Clearance is not really a requirement for passport application (new and renew) unless you need more supporting documents to show. If you have the primary requirements like your old passport + NSO Birth certificate + 2 valid IDs like UMID, Driver’s license, PRC license etc, then you won’t need an NBI Clearance anymore.

  67. Jacquelyn Garcia says

    Dear Mam/Sir,

    This is Ms. Jacquelyn Garcia of Castillejos Zambales tanung ko lang po if naipadala na nyo po ba passport namin po ng nanay ko po dito sa amin e wala pa po kami natanggap na passport sabi nyo po 15 na naipadala e pina-LBC po namin e wala pa.

    • Fehl says

      Please make a follow up at the DFA branch where you applied. Also consider the last holidays for the delivery date

  68. met_trinidad says

    dear mam, our passport will expire this may 14,
    my question is, can i use the same NSO -BC i presented when we applied for our expiring passport or do we have to secure a new NSO – BC?

    • Fehl says

      Yes, you can use it. NSO authenticated BC is valid even if it’s old unless NSO started putting expiration date for them. Dont forget to bring all original requirements and photocopies

  69. mae says

    gud aftern0on po maam.pa po ba may postal id,phil health id and original nso bc.for new applicant.pwede na po ba yung requirements na yan?

  70. may catherine e sanchez says

  72. Augustin cava says

    • Fehl says

      If you really read the article, you must know this by now. It’s first come first served basis. No need for appointments (as of now) :)

      • Mmm says

        Yeah i’ve read the article i just got confused on my officemate told me that i should get an appointment before going there. Thanks btw

  73. jess dela cruz says

    mag tatanung lang po sana kung pano mag pa appoint ng passport sa DFA pampanga salamat sa mga concerns :)

  74. chester kyle rodriguez arevalo says

    ask ko lang po kung ano requirements kailangan pag magrenew ako nang passport, minor pa po ako 16 years old my parents is in abroad. kailangan kona po kse irenew passport ko. asap thanks po.

  75. Marcelino M Lustre says

    Good morning mam, ask ko lang po yun sa wife ko:

    Real Maiden Name nya is ROSALYN COLECHA FATALLA pero yun nasa record sa BC nya at sa NSO nun kumuha sya ay ROSALYN GALICHA FATALLA, yun sa mother nya po ay GALICHA din nakalagay dun, pero COLECHA po talaga yun tama.

    Paano po ba dapat gawin para maisaayos ito para makakuha na sya ng passport?

    Salamat po.

  76. Harold Lazo says

  78. norie esguerra says

    ask ko lng po kong puede mgrenew nng passport dito s internet july po kc ang uwi ko balak ko po sana kukuin ko nlng sa robinson pampanga

    • Fehl says

      Passport applications (new and renew) are done personally. Personal appearance of the applicant is one of the major requirements

  79. lailane says

    Mam, gud afternoon!pwede po ba ideliver through lbc yung passport. Thanks. ..waiting for your answer. God bless.

    • Fehl says

      See if the DFA branch has passport delivery service. I think they have them until now. For around P150 delivery charge per passport last time I used their service

  80. Marcelino M Lustre says

    Good am po Mam Fehl, May 15, 2014 (1:00 – 3:00 PM) po dapat ang release ng passport ko dyan sa DFA Robinsons Pampanga. Ang kaso po, nun May 14, 2014 na naka receive ako ng text message na sabi from DFA Pamp daw po sila at advise nila sa akin na hindi ma release ang visa ko as per schedule (express passport) due to technical problems in Manila, at antay na lang daw po ako kung kelan maging available ito. Sabi pa kung may concern ako eh tawagan ko yun binigay na number, ang kaso po everytime na tatawagan ko ay laging busy at di ko makontak. Ask ko lang po kung ganun ba talagang nag de delay at di nalalabas as per schedule? Hindi po kaya ako mag penalty kung hindi ko makuha sa binigay nila schedule? Thank you po.

    • Fehl says

      I”m sorry to hear that. I think all you can do is wait patiently. My friend also experienced delayed. Buti umabot pa sa visa application sa embassy of Canada

      • Marcelino M Lustre says

        Ganon po ba? Salamat po, akala ko kasi sa akin lang nangyari yun, so antayin ko na lang pala na kontakin nila ako, salamat po.

      • Marcelino M Lustre says

        Good morning po mam fehl, nakuha ko na po passport ko last May 24 (sat), bale nag text po sila sa akin ng Friday May 23, informing na ready for pick up na daw po. Salamat po ng marami sa assistance nyo po. God bless.

    • Fehl says

      Please inquire personally about the reasons why your passport was not released yet at DFA releasing section in Robinsons

      • gina says

        hi maam gudpm i just want to ask if im still renew my passport in pampanga if im going there around 12 pm on june 26…because im coming there in the philippine on that time only..im allowed only 15 days in the philippines so i need to rush my renewal..may expiry of passport is sept 2014.im pregnant but my tummy only 3 month,i just want to ask if still they allowed me to renew my passport ryt away..thank you

        • Fehl says

          Yes they have special lanes for Senior Citizens and pregnant women. The 15 days processing sometime has delay so you must not count on the exact time frame of that so you won’t be disappointed. Ask the DFA kaagad regarding teh releasing time if it’s certain or if delay will be expected.

  86. Antonette says

    Good Day! just want to confirm if pag saturday po ba ngrenew s DFA Pampanga considered na as rush processing (P1200.00) or regular fee lang (P950.00)? Thanks..:)

  88. glider says

    hi. i have an expired passport years ago. I tried to apply recently as new applicant coz i lost the old passport already and thought it would be just as easy as before. I was denied coz my birth cert does not reflect the exact municipality, just ‘Manila’ and then the clinic name. I have to go to so much trouble when in fact, this is the same birth cert i used before to get my first passport and I had no trouble then with it.

    Now am planning to just reappy but this time, for renewal of passport. But am worried they might give me an issue again with my birth cert even though I had already a passport before using the same birth cert.

    Advise please?

    Thanks and more power.

  89. joseph a dela cruz jr says

    gud day mam and sir i want to ask a help before i getting a passport .. panu po ba kumuha ng appointment sa dfa. san po ako kukuha ng form online

  90. Jeymar says

    mam me again. . .

    pano po ba ung gagawin ko dun sa DOcuments ko..

    ung Full name ko po kc dun sa NSO walang Middle Initial dahil ung Surname ng mother ko ung gamit ko. Pero lahat ng Files ko po meron akong ginagamit na initial. ang sabi po ng iba lumalabas na magkaptid lng kmi ng mother ko..

    thanks po ng madami. . .

    • Fehl says

      I think it’s better if you use your father’s surname even though your parents are not together. NSO Birth Certificate is the most important document of a person because you dont only use it in school, you also use it in everything – job, passport, visa, ID, etc. You need to fix your NSO BC before anything else. Ask your mom about your surname and middle initial usage and go to your Municipal Local Civil Registrar to discuss the matter. Don’t worry, there are millions of people who are having related problems and NSO BC issues. There is always a solution

  91. rhina delosreyes says

    Hope that i could hear a response from you asap.
    Thank you God bless…

    • Fehl says

      DFA is now in Robinsons Starmills. I am not connected to DFA :) I think you will good to go assuming the requirements you mentioned are all valid, not expired and have similar information about you. BTW, Postal and TIN are not really primary IDs.

  96. rommallene says

    Gum am po! Ask ko lng po kng pwede n nbi,police clerance.birth cert.marriage cert.postal, voters cert.at sedula s pagkuha ng new passport? At s dlawang anak ko po isang 6 at isang 3 years old.pwede n po bng marriage at birth cert.nso copies po. godbless po..

  97. MeganMcpherson says

    Just wanna share my experience, i was at DFA Robinson Starmills last July 1, 2014 and they said suspended for rush passport issuance so all are just regular. Even so, the regular there is 25 working days and 15 working days for rush, both new and renewal. I will get my passport on August 5’14. A lot of people say it was easier to get passport there than in Manila.

    • Fehl says

      I had mine in DFA Robinsons Starmills too. Easier and faster during that time. I hope they fix the delay now though

  98. MeganMcpherson says

    I only gave nbi clearance, Official Transcript of Records for college,Voter’s certificate and my old school id. They look at original but they get only photocopy. Plusnof course original NSO certified birth ceritificate.

  99. caroline cubilla says

    gud day! mama tanung ko lang po ilang days po bagu mkuha ang rush pasport?
    mam , maissuehan po kya ako ng pasport kung ang dala ko lng po ay nso , nbi ,police clerance ang old id’s?thankyou po sna masagut nyu po ang katanungan ko godbless

    • Fehl says

      Rush is 7 working days. Bring 2 valid IDs and make sure your NBI and Police clearances are not expired

  100. John kits says

    Good day!
    Guys, pls help me out.,seems like busy si m’fehl…
    Applying for new passport,badly need it na kasi.pls help me out…

    -tin id
    -student license
    -brgy clearance

    Pls… Kindly give me your comments… Or text me
    Thanks guys…

    • Fehl says

      Sorry for late reply, my internet was acting up. TIN ID and Postal are not a primary ID. I think you will be ok to go if your docs mentioned are not expired and has similar info about you including birth date, signature etc. Check out the spellings too. prepare original and photocopies of your documents. Original NSO BC will be left in the DFA

  101. Nancy says

    QUESTION, plan to renew my passport in marque mall soon, do you think kahit married na me pwede no change of surname at status ang passport ko? thank’s for the rply

    • Fehl says

      Consistency is a must in everything. I suggest you use your present status / surname in everything to be approved in everything ie: visa, ID, bank transactions, etc.

  102. donajean bulanhagui says

    Hello po mam.

    Mam ask ko lang po if meron p pong rush pasporting s dfa pampanga. And how many days po. Thank you

    • Fehl says

      Someone from the previous comments mentioned they stopped rush processing for a while because of delay. Seems everything is Regular processing for now

  103. VILMA says

    hi maam , kmusta na po kayo ? my husband and my son will renew their passport ? kailangan pa bang magpa appointment sa DFA PAMPANGA ? how many days po ang rush passport …thanks madam .. i need your reply (ASAP)….

      • vina says

        Good Pm po Mam i would like to ask if Barangay Clearance , Voter’s Certificate and NSO birth certificate will do in getting passport i dont have ID cards po kase ok lang po ba kung wala ng NBI clearance but i have old employment ID and Old School ID . thanks po

        • Fehl says

          Recent company ID will help as supporting doc but try to bring the ones you mentioned. Only the DFA will tell if you’re approved

  104. VILMA says

    hi maam fehl, nabasa ko sa mga reply mo na NO RUSH PASSPORT , bale how many days po ang processing ng magrenew ng passport at kailangan po pa ba ang mag pa appointment sa DFA PAMPANGGA ? thanks n i need your reply …godbless u

    • Fehl says

      Someone shared that info actually (read the previous comments). The delay in rush passport releasing has been happening for a while now. There is no certain date when rush will come back. I think it’s soon because they cannot let the delay happening for a long time

  105. Kevin says

    Hello po!

    hi Ms FeHL !! kukuha po sana aq ng passport meron na po aq ng mga to..
    -NSO
    -Brgy Clearance
    -highschool id
    – YearBook
    and my NBI Clearance and Police Clearance kaka expired lang po a month ago pwede pa po ba ipresent un
    and Postal ID lang po ang valid id na meron ako ngaun, so pwede n po ba ung mga un sa pagkuha ng passport?

    • Fehl says

      Your NBI and Police Clearance are not acceptable because they are already expired. Make sure you have all valid documents

    • Fehl says

      If you know the releasing date, you can bring your valid IDs and try to get it. You need to explain how you lost the receipt though or might need to submit a document regarding the loss in case they requested it

  110. lyn says

    mam nag apply po aq ng passport kaso need q po rush sana kaso suspended daw po.. need q po sna ung passport next month may ibang paraan pa po ba??? sa sept. 01 pa daw release eh..

    Need pa ba ang affidavit of support and consent to travel ng parents eh kami naman mismo ang magdadala sa bata sa byahe?

    Thanks po.

      Decent attire like blouse or polo shirt and closed shoes. They don’t allow people wearing sleepers, short sleeves and shorts in entering the DFA

      • prong says

        Been to DFA Pampanga today to apply for a new passport, but I saw one woman na naka mini shorts pero she was still able to be processed sa application nya.
        Anyways thanks po sa infos, it only took me almost 3 hours to be processed. Suggestion lang po sa mga mag aapply din, bago kayo pumunta or kumuha ng passport, paxerox nyo na lahat ng IDs, certs, old passport nyo, kase additional pila pa yung pag papa xerox. Para iwas hassle. :)

        • Fehl says

          Oh perhaps government offices are now lesser strict in terms of clothing. When I applied, the woman wearing sleepers had to buy closed sandals in Robinsons just to enter the DFA

  112. maria crisanta says

    hi mam
    mam ask ko lang po sana kung kilangan pa ba ng old id’s sa mga new?
    mag dadala pa po ba ako?

  113. john says

    hi ma’am!
    Ask ko lang po do I need to download the application form or meron na po sila doon to fill up pag andun na ako? and still no appointment pa po ba? kindly reply asap po sana thanks

    • Fehl says

      They have available application forms in DFA already but the download form is just a recommendation para mafill-up mo na in advance. No appointment as of now padin

    DFA Pampanga Experience
    (First of all THANKS to Ms. Fehl :)

    Pumunta ako sa DFA Pampanga ng 4am para mag apply ng PASSPORT, dala ang mga sumusunod:

    NSO BC (orig copy)
    POSTAL ID (xerox)
    VOTERS CERTIFICATE (orig copy)
    NBI CLEARANCE (xerox)
    HS YEARBOOK (the rescuer)

    Bago pa buksan ang MALL may mag sscreening na at ang mas gusto pala nilang dala ay mga OLD supporting DOCUMENTS o yung mga EXPIRED na para daw mas mz proved yung identity. (kasi in my case wala po akong valid ID hehe) kaya yan. Nung natapos na nagpapasok na then in about 10mins sa loob natapos na ang pag aapply ko at salamat sa YEARBOOK ko kasi muntik na akong mareject Kung wala YUN.

    PS yung kasabay kong mga bagong kuha ang mga documents at ID ay nireject ang dala Nya ay

    -DRIVERS LICENSE
    -POSTAL
    -NBI
    -NSO

    Ayan po na reject siya dyan kasi po bagong kuha Lang, so ang TIP ko Lang po mas Dalhin nyu na po yung mga oldies na document nyu at Kung yung NSO nyu naman po ay Hindi ganung ka READABLE ay magdala po kayu ng MUNICIPAL issue na BC.

    SALAMAT PO. AT 25 WORKING DAYS NA PO NGAYUN SA PAMPANGA bago am RELEASE yung PASSPORT.

    THANKS PO ULIT MS. FEHL AT GOODLUCK SA MGA KUKUHA :)

  115. Shanirie says

  116. Regina says

    Hi Ms. Fhel, tanong ko lang kung may senior citizen’s lane? new applicant kasi ang mother ko na senior citizen, and magrerenew naman ako ng sa kin.. what is the best thing to do para hindi naman matagal maghintay si mother? thank you

    • Fehl says

      All government offices have spacial lanes for senior citizens, disabled, and pregnant women. If they don’t, report them at the Civil Service Commission

  117. edwin agulto says

    Regular processing po ang naaplayan ng kaibigan ko ngayon is kailangan kailngan n ng passport nya dga pampanga po ito.pde po b i pa rush kc naghihintay na yung employer..pls help po..kla kc po miya ay 15 days lng.. nun pla is 1 month. Pls help po..

    • Fehl says

      I heard there is a major delay for passport processing and apparently they do regular processing for now. Did you ask the DFA when will they resume the Rush processing?

  118. Jenny Del Rosario says

    ask ko lang po need pa ba ng appointment bago pmunta ng DFA Pampanga bago i entertain or pwede na walk in applicant lang??? pls reply naman po Im from Olongapo City po… thank you

    • Fehl says

      If you remember the date and time of release, you can go to the releasing section of DFA and claim your passport. Bring valid IDs and prepare to explain your reason.

  119. ariel says

    hi po. may appointment na po ako sa dfa paranque. then i decided na dyan na lang ako kukuha. kahit ba di ku na iccacancel ung appointment ok lang? tsaka totoo bang 7 days lang pag rush processing?

    • Fehl says

      Yes, it’s ok if you didn’t attend on the appointment. Currently, DFA Pampanga is on first-come-first-served basis (no appointment)

  120. rowena mato says

    …gud arternoon po mam.. kapag isang postal po.. at meron kang authenticated birth. , baranggay clearance of dfa,police clearance..and old school id.. pwede na po ba akong kumuha ng passport.. 1st tymer po ako.. at meron bang appointment ngaun sa pampangga?? pls reply po kayo kailangan ko po ng sagot eh kasi po .. hrap na hrap na po ako dto sa manila… ang hrap pong kumuha ng passport dto… tnx po..

    • Fehl says

      Postal ID is not usually considered as primary ID however you can submit supporting docs like your police clearance, nbi clearance, old school ID and yearbook. Make sure your clearances are not expired and make sure all your documents contain same info (name, spelling, birthdate, etc.) about you

  121. Jayson Santos says

    For renewal of passport, meron akong driver’s license. kailangan ko pba ng nso birth certificate? as i know na ang birth certificate ay requirement lng for 1st time passport

  122. Mimay says

    Hi,

    Ask ko lang kung may number din pag senior citizen ang kukuha ng passport? Or since may priority lane naman, kelangan po ba talaga na before opening ng mall eh andun na at nakapila?

  123. Caithlin B. Gonzales says

    • Fehl says

      You may need to submit additional supporting documents if the DFA is not satisfied with the IDs you have provided. If you’re married, you also need to submit NSO MC

    • Fehl says

      Yes, just bring authorization letter and valid IDs of the one getting the passport on your behalf. Also don;t forget to show the DFA receipt when claiming the passport

  137. tom somo says

    • Fehl says

      You must bring NSO Birth certificate too. I think you’ll be ok if the docs you mentioned are not expired and have similar information about you

      • haras says

        Yes po ma’am, all documents are still valid and I also have my birth certificate copy and certification from LCR as well as yung copy from NSO, kaso po im worried kc late registered and they might ask for more like, my old school records which d ko pa po nakukuha. with the documents that I have possible pa ba maghanap cla ng ibang documents?

Ano po gagawin ko kc need ko magchange status sa muli kong pagkuha. pls. help me. Pakispecify po lahat ng requirments. Thank you and God bless.

    • Fehl says

      You need to update your IDs bearing your new surname and get NSO Marriage Certificate and submit them to DFA when you renew your old passport. Submit photocopy and original copy of your old passport and NSO MC, submit photocopy of your NSO BC and valid IDs but bring the original to show them

  147. roben says

    mam fehl.. nov 7 2014 po marerelease ung passport ko… pero ako po ang pupunta sa dfa starmill dahil po my ipa- follow up pa po akong requirments kaya ndi po pede i pa lbc.. ang sabi po kc sakin eh mag ttxt po cla sakin kung ok na ung passport ko, oh kahit ndi pa mag ttxt cla before mag 7 taga nueva ecija pa po ako… pupunta po ba ako kahit wala ng txt? sayang naman po kung ndi pa pala tapos yung passport ko… thank you po in advance…..

  149. nica says

    good day po mam fehl, may tanong lang po ako yung kaibigan ko nakagamit sya ng ibang pangalan na passport e kaso ngayon po gusto nya iapply ang tunay na pangalan nya pwede po kaya nya makuha na tunay na pangalan nya diretso apply sa dfa at hindi lalabas yung nagamit nyang passport…maraming salamat po

    • Fehl says

      That is double registration and that might cause big problem. He must solve this by starting at the NSO to have a correction of his name and cancel the one that is wrong the approach DFA. CONSISTENCY is the best policy.

  150. jeselle says

    hi ma’am fehl ask ko lang po kung pwede na ung NSO ,birthcerth, postal iD and mga old school iDs ko pra makakuha ng passport ?thank you po
