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.

        • Good afternoon. I went to DFA Pampanga Robinson last week together with my sister and my 8 months old twins to apply for their passports.
          Unfortunately, even when we reached the place by 9am since we are from Mariveles Bataan (3 hours travel by bus), we are unable to get the application forms coz according to them :
          1. They have a cut off of 50 people for priority lane and the lane for that is only at 7am. So that means, me and the twins and my sister should travel 3am from Mariveles.
          2. My twins can’t get passport together at the same time with the twins coz they said only parents are allowed.

          I already explained to them that I am a single mom having twins and it will be hard for me to travel by plane alone if my sister cannot accompany since they gave her appointment after 2 months.

          We have IDs, NSO birth certificates, and my passport but still unable to process ???

  26. [Updates]

    Just went there in Rob Star Mills Pampanga all the way from Taguig City to try my luck in processing my passport renewal today..

    I came to the place around 2:00 AM (1 hour and 15 minutes from Cubao) and found groups of people also patiently waiting at the entrance of Robinsons (some of them even arrived as early as 10:00 PM).

    As there were no guards on duty and no one actually knows the exact place where the forms and numbers would be distributed, we just waited at the front entrance beside Mini Stop.

    At around 5:00 AM, we started checking the backside of the mall (Transport Hub area) and then voila! There was that guard/person on duty who provided the forms and asked everyone to lineup.

    Sadly, it’s confirmed that there is no longer walk-in / same day process in Star Mills Pampanga. You have to line up to get your scheduled appointment and there is no way they will entertain you unless you are PWD, pregnant, Senior Citizen or has kids below 1 year old.

    The DFA Officer started giving out the schedules [they will just stamp your application form with the date and time of your appointment and then they will send you home 🙁 – 2 minute process ].

    So if you will also try your luck at Robinsons Star Mills, be ready to wait for another 1.month to get your application process. Yes – you read it right. It is 1 MONTH.

    I went there today and the schedule provided is already at 7 April 2016. Most of the people who came late would probably be scheduled on 8 April 2016. Nonetheless, it is still one month. After this, if you want to get your passport rushed, it’s an additional 10 working days (exclude Sat/Sun/Holidays).

    It sucks I know. But it’s much better than that of DFA Manila’s (including the malls) which is already in the month of May and June for the online appointments.

    Lesson learned after all these hassles: Renew your passport timely to avoid all these crammings.

Tapos sabi ng guard pumila lahat ng wala pang appointment mga bandang quarter to 5am. Nakakapanglumo lang na appointment plng pala ang ipinila namin dito now. Sabi ng guard at 8am dadating dw ang empliyado para magbigay samin ng date ng appointment namin para bumalik dito at ma process ang passport. Wala na silang walk-in’s. ??? sabi sa nabasa ko dito initiate on walk ins feb 1 anu ba talaga? Eh diba pasisimula ng walkins ang sinabi nya. Sana sinabi nlng na we already have an appointment processing starting feb 1. You may visit dfa pampanga to get a schedule of appointment. Sana man lang ganyan ng maintindihan ng lahat. Or tagalugin na lang. Para na din pala nag online appointment ito ang mas masama pa is galing ka ng malayo tapos appointment plng ang makukuha mo then babalik ka pa para ma process huhuhu asaan ang hustisya.. ???

        • hi ms lei.. if you already have a job order you can go directly to dfa aseana or robins0ns galleria as ofw walk in applicant. they will surely entertain you. just bring your proof na aalis ka na. ticket or contract?

      • Hi Angel,

        When you went there on February, gaano katagal yung binigay nila sayo na Date for your actual appointment? I think its better to get posted here so others who are willing to get an appointment can have an estimate of how long they have to wait for their appointed date.

        Cheers,
        Jackie

      • It says WALK IN APPOINTMENT. wala naman sinabing process na agad. Appointment ang sabi right?
        So instead of via online, you need to personally go there.
        Understand what is written before you assume. Kakatawa.

        • Nagawa mo pang mang-away. Ang point dito, may internet na at lahat, hirap pa rin sila sa online appointment. Laki ng tinatax natin na napupunta sa mga offices na yan pero kailangan pa maghintay ng kapwa natin pinoy ng simula 10PM habang himbing ang tulog ng mga empleyado ng DFA, hanggang sa pumasok sila ng 8AM. ( Well, yung ibang employee nakita ko almost lunch na dumadating>) IT SUCKS!

    • Ano ang requirements for renewal of passport? Kasi base s nabasa ko na requirements my nso birthcertificate pa? Dba passport id at appearance lng ang kailangan?

      • If your old passport was issued prior to May 1995, you also need NSO BC. If issued after 1995, you need valid ID and the old passport

    • Sa marquee mall po sa pampanga. Tumatanggap po sila ng walk-in applicant. Dyan din po kasi kami mag apply noon.

      • No more walk in/same day processing sa marquee. Advantage if nakapila ka is earlier ang appointment compared sa online which takes longer

  32. Just want to share my experience on passport renewal in marquee mall, Angeles, Pampanga.

    I went to DFA Marquee Mall in Angeles, Pampanga to have my passport renewed last January 7, 2016, Thursday. I opted for the DFA in Marquee Mall for I am in a hurry to renew my passport and there is no appointment system in this office.

    Travelled from Pasay and arrived at the mall around 8am. I did not know the exact place where to line up for the DFA application and so we asked a guard. He pointed us to the other side of the mall in front of Marquee Residences Condominium fronting Marquee Park beside Itallianis.

    Went there and a security guard (SG) for the DFA was waiting for the applicants to submit their filled up forms. I gave him my form and then told me that I was applicant number 132. I ask how early did some applicants came and he replied that as early as 4am there are already applicants waiting. The SG also advised everybody to prepare beforehand all the necessary requirement for the application process.

    Afterwards, we waited until 9am and they allowed everybody to come inside the mall. The SGs advised that the first batch that will be called are applicants from the day before that they were not able to accommodate for they only have a limit of 300 applicants per day. It was a good thing that I was able to get an appointment that same day.

    It was not until 12noon that my name was called. Went to the processing, handed my forms to the SG assigned and again waited for my name to be called. After 30 minutes, my name was called. I presented my expired passport and BIR ID. The teller processed it and I noticed that she wrote my name wrong on a piece of paper that needs to be presented to the cashier for payment. I told her that spelling is wrong and she corrected it. In 5 minutes the processing was done. The teller told me to again wait for my name to be called at the cashiers window for payment.

    Fifteen minutes passed before my name was called. Paid the cashier for rush processing (PHP1200) and she handed me a receipt which also indicates January 21, 2016 as release date of my passport. Cashier told me to wait at the photo area for my picture to be taken.

    I Waited another fifteen minutes before my name was called at the photo area. In the photo session, the personnel ask me to check all the information that has been logged in the computer and to tell her if something is amiss. This checking will be the last time that applicants can verify all the information that will be contained in the passport are all correct. I took my time and check all the infos and all seems legit.

    A little later than 1pm and I was done.

    Come January 21, 2016, indicated as my passport release date, went back to Marquee Mall on an afternoon and got my new passport.

      • Kung magwo-walk in po kayo, dapat gabi pa lang naka-pila na po kayo, kasi first 300 applicants lang po se-serve nila per day. Marami na kumukuha ng Passport ngayon sa DFA Pampanga. Exactly 5:00 am last friday nandun na’ko, nagulat ako 04:00 am pa lang daw cut-off na. Yung iba daw na aplikante 09:00 pm pa lang naka-pila na. Yung mga hindi naka-abot nagpa-Appointment na lang.

    • i, together with my wife and grand daughter went to marquee mall last saturday, 30 january 2016 to renew our passport, unfortunately we were not able to able to renew it because the procedure according to the dfa guard were change as follows because on 13 january 2016 walk in applicants reached 700 and they cannot process this volume odf applicants hence they change the procedure as follows::1st: Have an appointment, then
      2nd : Return on the date of your appointment. (Note they dont have on-line appointment system)

      • if they do not have online appointment how to make an appointment then?
        DFA maybe thought that traveling back and forth just to make an appointment is free?
        it is really ridiculous to go there to make an appointment then come back again…. rubbish system…

      • Sir how is the scheduling of appointment? Do we still need to line-up? If ever, can I go there in the afternoon just to schedule an appointment? Thanks.

        Reply
        • Hello, I tried to schedule an appointment to their office at Marquee mall via email using this address: dfaclarksatellite@yahoo.com

          They are actually prompt in replying to my queries. They’ll give you an appointment stub (a pdf file) which you’ll have to print out and show at the date of your appointment.

          I just forgot to ask if I still need to bring supporting documents even if I already have a valid ID for the renewal of passport. Do anyone of you know? I’ll be really grateful.

          Good luck to all of us!
