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

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.

UPDATE:

DFA RCO-Pampanga is now implementing online appointment. You need to make online schedule/appointment before you go to the DFA office to process your passport.

Senior Citizens, Minor (7 years old below), PWDs and Pregnant applicants no longer need to secure an appointment and may be accommodated on the same day.

Please come within mall hours (10am-5:00pm) with your complete requirements from Monday-Saturday (except holidays).

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 DFA passport online application is currently only for those DFA Aseana Blvd. appointments and some DFA SM branches in Manila like SM Megamall, Robinsons Galleria, Ali Mall etc.). 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 the DFA office and make an appointment. DFA RO 3 now requires walk-in appointment. You can read the comments below to have ideas what time the long line starts.

    • Hindi na po kailangan ng appointment kapag OFW, kahit saan po passport office mayroong OFW lane. Atleast 6 months valid ang passport for travel and renewal, nasa sa inyo na po ‘yun kung rush or regular.

  9. May we inquire with regards on the item-2 requirement (based on additional requirement of DFA for loss pasport-police report)

    IF police report or police clearance is still required IF Passport was Loss and Expired.
