How to get a passport in DFA Megamall and what are the requirements? Since DFA Aseana Boulevard and other DFA offices in Manila and nearby provinces are always hectic, you can also process your passport application – new and renew at DFA SM Megamall.

Passport processing here is also fast because they also have online appointment system where everyone can schedule their passport application and renewal online before going to the DFA personally. All appointments will have their own dates and time of appearance. It also makes the processing more comfortable and smooth.

In this post, I’m gonna share about the requirements you’ll need to bring at DFA at your day of appointment and the procedures of the application. We start with scheduling an appointment online because you need a valid and confirmed date before you file and process your passport.

According to the Department of Foreign Affairs, “confirmed appointment is required for all applicants except Senior Citizens, infants and minors below 1 year old, person with disability and OFWs. For OFWs, sufficient proof must be submitted such as a valid employment contract or OEC.”

dfa megamall passport requirements

Make sure you bring all the application for passport requirements together with your valid IDs, primary documents like PSA birth certificate (original and photocopy). For first time applicants, the original birth certificate will be left at DFA as file copy or reference. For renewal, they only get the photocopies of IDs and requirements. If you didn’t bring photocopies, you’ll need to fall in line to the people on queue who also needs Xerox at the Passport processing section.

How to get a Passport in DFA SM Megamall

  1. First step is you go to the Attendance Section. The guard will lead you there after checking your application form and confirmed appointment. They will also check your requirements at this time. You’ll have to get your number from the queuing machine. Wait for your number to be flashed on the screen that says “currently servicing.”
  2. Second step is in Processing Section. Once your number as called, go to the counter/window and the DFA staff will check your application form, mark the important details, check your requirements (if they all tally and if they are consistent), they will also check your IDs if they are valid. Usual primary documents are PSA birth certificate, 2 valid IDs and some supporting documents if needed or if you don’t have any valid ID. It would take 2-3 minutes on this section. Once you’re Okayed, you need to sign the form and choose if you want a Rush Processing or Regular Processing.
  3. Next is your way to the Cashier to pay your chosen (regular or Rush) passport processing fee.
  4. Last step is encoding and data and biometrics capture

How much is the passport processing fee in the Philippines?

  • Regular Processing Fee P950
  • Rush Processing Fee P1200
  • Appointment on Saturdays are charged P1200
  • Additional P120 if you want your passport to be delivered

During Encoding Section and Data Capture, you have to check and double check all the details encoded for your passport personal information. Make sure they are accurate and correct or else you’ll have big problems such as applying again. You will also have your photo captured at this time and your finger prints (biometrics) scanned and signature taken. By the way, don’t wear earrings.

You’re done. Make sure you have your receipt with you before you leave DFA because you need it to claim your passport on the releasing date. The date is stamped on the receipt.

  1. Hello. 🙂 Survey lang for this year 2017, gaano katagal hinihintay niyo bago mai-deliver sa inyo yung passport? Ilang working days bago niyo nakuha? LBC din ba courier niyo? Thanks.

    Hehehe~ aware naman na kasi ako na hindi na masusunod yung express/rush processing.

    note: sa DFA NCR NorthEast (Ali Mall) pala ako nag-apply nung March 11, 2017

  2. hi po ask ko lang nka pag appointment na ako pero pag punta ko sa dfa my kulang sa recquirements ko…need ko ba uling mg pa schedule?

    • Merun naman po nakalagay yan sa parang papel na binigay nila sayo pero Gaya po sa mama ko d na need mag pa appointment pero dapat mabigay mo ung requirements d lagpas Ng 1 month Kc pag lagpas mgpapa appointment ka na po.

      • Hi po! my mom is a senior citizen. the problem is hindi titanggap yung nso bc kasi iba ang nakalagay na birthplace sa nakalagay sa nbi. Mali po yung sa nso bc. We decided na e follow na lang po kung ano ang nakalagay sa nso bc. kasi hassle na, nbi lang naman ang iba, kasi pati sa police clearance same sa nso bc.

        Can we just ripped off the application form which was stapled with the requirements. and fill up new application form, since she is a senior citizen there’s no hassle for scheduling. Thank you

    • kindly concern po please check po ung date ng may 16 2017 . paano po ma open po ulit ung appoint ment schecdule ang email po kasi na nailagay is already close po.? please help po

      • Ikw Lang po makakabukas nun sa email mo Kc may confirmation code po un para mabuksan at Ma edit nio po Ang dapat Ma edit.

    Try nyo maghanap ng date from 9am – 3pm. Maybe earlier? Nakakuha ako ng March 10 appointment ngayon lang sa DFA Megamall. Iclick nyo lang ng iclick kada date, may nag-oopen na slots. Altho dapat mabilis kayo kasi kukunin agad yan within a minute. Nung una ang nakita ko April 05, pero di ko agad na-resched kaya nawala uli. Then natignan ko March 10 at ayun nga nag-open so nakuha ko! Nagcheck din ako after may nag-open na April 11. Kaya try lang kayo ng try, chambahan talaga sa online appointment.

  4. hello po. need to ask lang kung if ever na nakakuha ka ng slot/schedule at ng na download na yung scheduled appointment and found out na merong need i-correct paano ba ang process nito. wala kasi option para ma modify yung dapat i-correct sa form. pwede bang i-correct ito during the appointment before encoding the final information. pls. advise. tnx

    • I think pde naman po siguro kausapin ung papasahan mo nung requirements mo. Tao Lang dn naman nagkakamali. Bsta may proof ka na ikaw un if ever sa name man may iba Ka naman na requirements na ipapasa so pde nila i compare un☺

  5. Bakit puro not available na ang slots sa dfa megamall at aseana manila until April. Tapos sa May naman no available timeslots. Bakit ganun? Kahit june july august wala.

    • Ganun po talaga ngayon.. sa parents ko nga ganun rin eh buti nalang may free slots pa para sa march. Hirap magpa appointment.

      • Gara naman. Kahit May or June ok lang sakin eh, di naman ako in a hurry. Pero impossible makapag-schedule kung ganyan.

      • Kumuha na lang ako appointment sa DFA NCR NORTH (Robinsons Novaliches). Nakakuha naman ng earliest, March 21 so pwede na din.

          • Nakachamba lang nag-open kasi bigla slots nung time na tinignan ko. Pero the next day I checked again, ubos na naman slots. Check nyo lang ng icheck kung may mag-open slots. Tyagaan lang talaga sa online appointment.

      • Hello po ask ko lang po kasi may sched na kami for march 9 appointment (group appointment kasi) kaso lang po ung kapatid ko may exam that day 12 pa ang labas sa school tapos ng appointment namin sa dfa 1PM so malate tlga kami sa sched pwede pa kaya un maiprocess that day or
        mababalewala nalang?? Kasi latr kami sa time??

        • I think po need talaga Ng physical appearance eh . Baka kung sakali Po sya Lang ung hindi makukuhaan.

  6. Its not true that online booking system is much easier and convenient way to get passport like what the other saying. I have experience it my self that i tried to book online sit in front if the computer made different days and also spent 24hrs to get slot but always failed the schedule i am on suddenly disappear. I went to DFA Aseana try to ask help to book me to one of the shop near aseana mcdonald then the owner start talking about instant booking if i will pay 20ppfor every person inside who will sign every documents it means 8000 pesos he need to fix my passport.

    DFA office gives more job to all buwayas by doing this system they have now. Some internet shop asking 500 to 1500 it depends how close is the schedule they can book. Thanks for that system buwayas got more money

  19. Need your answer you. Student po ako. And by second semister pa ako mag eenroll. I am planning to go travel outside the country while I’m having a long holiday this first semister. Would the DFA allow me to get a passport? And what would be the paperworks/requirements I will be needed to provide as a student traveller?

  20. bakit ganun, july to sept 20 no available slots na… ganun po ba talaga grabe ang tagal na ng next appointment…

      Need q dw palagyan ng notation ung bc q kaso poh sa kidapawan city pa poh un at dto poh aq now pasig.
      Kumuha aq ulit ng bc PSA na ang logo ganun pa din 2pages pa din.
      D poh ba un pdeng iconsider ng dfa?

  21. I am applying for a passport and the appointment system is such a pain in the ass. You can’t do anything if the schedule system gives you an appointment on the next 3-4months cause those are the only dates available. Does everyone have to go through the appointment confirmation or they have a choice to go directly to DFA and process everything manually?

    • If you’re an OFW and it’s really urgent, do not rely on the current DFA online appointment system. Just go to the OFW Lane at DFA Aseana, bring your passport requirements, copy of your exit clearance, visa and ticket. It’s faster

  22. hi maam/sir. tanong ko lang po. nugg june 10 po yung appointment ko. pagpunta ko po mali yung birth certificate ko tapos pinapabalik po nila ko. tinanong ko sila kung kailan ako pwde bumalik. sabe nila hanggang july pa naman daw po pwde. it mean anytime ako pwde mag submit ng requirement for passport? kahit wala ng appointment?

    • I think they’ll give you within 1 month to submit the requirements and no need for an appointment. If this is at megamall, they would attach a piece of paper on your requirements indicating what requirements you need to submit and which window you can directly proceed to when you come back.

      Anyone knows megamall’s tel. number so I can enquire if my passport is already available for claiming? I read some blogs that they were not able to claim their passport on the scheduled date given to them by DFA because it was not ready. Is there still a delay in claiming passports?

  23. Does this rule still apply? ““Confirmed appointment is required for all applicants except Senior Citizens, infants and minors below 1 year old, person with disability and OFWs. For OFWs, sufficient proof must be submitted such as a valid employment contract or OEC.” Could you please refer me to the DFA webpage where you found that rule?

    I need to have my passport renewed ASAP. When I set an appointment online, the earliest date I found was August 4. Since I’m an OFW with a valid OEC, could I just show up at ASEANA or Megamall?

    • Hello i have the same inquiry…. have you renewed your passport already, if you did can i just walk in

  24. Good day po ma’am. Ask ko lang po sana if ok lang ba na isang valid id lang ang maipapakita ko sa pag renew w/c is driver’s license kasi nawala ko kasi ang voter’s id ko. meron din po akong T.O.R. .

    • I suggest you get it asap close to that date you missed coz everyday, dumadagdag ang passport na nirerelease, the more you delay it, the more time they need to look for it from their high piles of passport-to-be-released section

    • I’m not really sure kund saan may rush kasi sa mga comments dito, may nagbayad ng rush pero hindi naman narelease agad. If you lost your passport, you need Affidavit of Loss

  97. Hi. I just had my passport renewed yesterday at mega but i lost the php1200 receipt. can i go back to dfa tom to have it reprinted? Is there addditional charge? I was able to recover the lbc receipt for delivery.

    • Hi, since you selected LBC service, your passport will be delivered to you in the address you provided LBC. You wont need DFA receipt when it arrived, instead you can show valid IDs

    • It depends on the type of process you selected (rush or regular processing). Rush is 7 working days while regular is 10 working days

  98. tanong ko lang po… my nephew who will be 18 this 28th Feb will apply for new passport. he will be accompanying my mom here in italy this coming May. sa tingin nyo po is it better to wait till he becomes 18 yrs. old or pwedeng ngayon na even though he’s still a minor. i’m just a bit worried baka po kasi gahulin sa oras because he still need to apply for schengen visa from the embassy. and gaano po ba katagal to make an appointment with DFA? thanks.

    • Hi Emmy. If you applied for appointment, the schedule you’ll get I’m sure will be after Feb. so that means he’s 18 by that time already. Medyo matagal talaga pag may appointment kasi madami applicants pero kelangan sundin yung schedule

  116. Hi Ms. Fhel,

    Just want to ask on renewal of passport. I had my passport before and it was expired more than 10 years still single at that time so my maiden name was registered there. My problem is I lost my passport and I cannot remember the exact date or year it was processed and expired. I am already married and I use my married name in all my valid id’s like driver license, sss id, comelec, etc..and I have my marriage contract. What is the first step to do? Do i need to renew the lost one under my single name or just get a new one using my married name that I also use for my Valid ID’s.. thanks

  117. Good am. May ask lang po ako po ay nagttrabaho sa uae dubai. this
    year uwi ako ng march 07, 2015 at balik ako ng april 02. So ngayon po sabay kuna sana ang pagkuha at pag renew ng e-passport koh.. So ganito po pano ung mga visa na nakatatak sa old passport koh..

  118. Hello po, medyo confuse lang po ako sa pag fill up ng online appointment form ng DFA. my expired passport is SINGLE po ako. magpaparenew po ako and will use my married name. Sa pag fill up po ba ng online form ano po ilalagay sa LAST NAME, FIRST NAME, MIDDLE NAME? yung married name na po ba or yung maiden name pa rin po?

    Thank you so much. hopefully you will reply.

    • If you’re married, you must provide there your married last name. If they need your maiden name, may note naman pag needed yon.

  119. good day po. nawala po ang passport ko 4 years na po.gusto ko kumuha ulit. kelangan ko p ba mg set ng appoiment? tsaka ano po tamang proseso na dapat kong gawin.please reply.tnx

  120. May rush po ba ngaun? Kasi marami na ksi akung naririnig tungkol s pagkuha ng new passport n wala n pong rush, totoo po ba yon?

  121. HI, pasensya na kung paulit ulit ang tanong namin. but i want to make it usre na tama ang mga dadalhin kong requirements..

    Compulsory ba ang NBI clearance or Police ?

    ang meron lang po akong requirements..

    Driver`s license
    Year book
    Company ID
    College ID(expired)..

    Thank you so much for answering my question.

    • No, NBI and Police clearance are required only when your documents are incomplete or you have no valid IDs. If the DFA staff is satisfied with the docs you presented, then you’re good

  122. good day po.true po kaya na 7 days lang at mapapasakamay mo na ang iyong renew passport?paano po kaya kung natapos na ang iyong isang buwang bakasyon,at hindi mo pa rin nakukuha ang iyong renew passport ay kailangan mo nang bumalik sa iyong employer?maari pa rin kayang gamitin ang lyong lumang valid na passport?thank you po.

    • The 7 day-rush is true however there are some instances and special cases when delays happen. The DFA will always remind you anyway. It is always best to use the new passport if you already renewed to avoid immigration problems

  123. Hello po.. Ask ko lang kung pwede po ba mag renew ng passport kung xerox lang dalhin ko kasi nawala po ung passport ko .thanks

  124. Hello po. College school ID lang po meron ako. With nso and baptismal cert. makakakuha po ba ako ng passport with these documents only? If hindi po, ano pa pong mga pwede kong kunin para makakuha ng passport. Thanks po.

    • You need to provide more supporting documents like NBI Clearance and college yearbook since you don’t have primary IDs. If you’re married, you also need to submit NSO Marriage Certificate


    • If the DFA office is open on Saturday, yes. Go to the releasing section and present your claiming receipt and your valid IDs. Make sure though you will go on on or after the date of release

  126. Hi..ask ko lng po pumnta ako aseana..dnala k mga req…nbi clearance..police clearance …begun.clearance ..t.o.r.old id school..sedula..nso..postal I.d..Anu p po b ang kulang para mkakuha ako ng passport. Tsaka kng. Mgset ako appointment s net..pede po b un iprocess s megamall khit hindi n s aseana thanks..pls reply

    • It depends if the DFA staff will be satisfied with your proof of identity (documents). Your appointment in DFA Aseana can only be used in DFA Aseana.

  127. nailagay ko sa appointment ko ung work address ay yung address ng school pde bang pagdating ko sa dfa sabihin ko na papalitan ung work address ko dun?

  128. good pm pede ko ba isave sa usb ung appointment q sa dfa para ipaprint sa laba?wala kasi akong printer dito sa haus….salamat

  129. Hi po, ask ko lang po sana pano kapag nawala ang receipt ko ng passport, ano ipapakita ko para makuha ko na ang passport ko? Thanks po!

    • Valid IDs and prepare to explain about the lost. I’m not sure if they require affidavit of loss because it’s just a receipt and they will see your IDs and passport anyway to identify it’s really you

  130. hi..just want to ask lang kasi kumuha ako ng passport noong july2014 kaya lang untill now hindi ko pa nakukuha due to some reason nawala po kc lahat ng valid id ko at resibo kaya nagpapagawa po ako ngayon,.pwede ko pa bang makuha yung passport ko ngayon?

    • I read on the DFA website that they dispose unclaimed docs after 6 months. Hurry! Try nyo claim ulit sa DFA where you applied

  131. Hi. Tomorrow will be our schedule. Open kaya cla tom? And i was read alot of bad comments regarding sa pg deliver and release ng passport, im so very disapointed. Somebody says na super delay kht na rush na and they’re trying to contact the sm megamall but nobodys answer the call, dinadrop pa nila call and worst pinadeliver po pero ssbhn nila ready for pickup. What the heck they are?

  133. Hi! I would like to know if we can have one of our family members authorized to pick up our passports in DFA Manila. My husband and I had applied couple weeks ago (Nov.20th) for our passport renewal in Philippine Consulate here in Vancouver, Canada. I’m worried that we might have to rebook our flights if our passports don’t get here prior to the date of ou departure. We have bought our plane tickets for January 7th and didn’t realize that our passports are both expired till a week after we’ve made the purchase. Is there any way we can have someone to pick it up on DFA Manila and have it mailed to us? Will it be faster that way? Thank you very much for taking time to read my concern. Hope to hear from you soon. God bless!

    • I think you can authorize someone to receive your passport on your behalf. Just make sure they have the authorization letter, copy of your valid IDs, their valid IDs and your DFA receipt when claiming. Also make sure you have requested DFA Vancouver they deliver them in DFA in Manila. I just wonder if they would allow you travel if your don’t have at least 6 months validity in your passport

  134. Good PM! We are planning to apply for passport for our 3 kids plus renewal of me and my husband’s of the requirement is Certificate of Marriage. Do we need to provide one copy of the original Marriage contract per kid and for me and my husband? or we can present at least 2 copies of original for all of us ..I already sent a Family application form and was scheduled on Dec. 20.

    Should we also provide affidavit of explanation for non-schooling of our children though obviously, they are not yet in schooling age?

    Hope you could answer my inquiries. Thank you & More power to you.

    • Birth place is one important detail in the NSO Birth Certificate. You need to fix it because you will lack identity info forever if you don’t

  143. Hi, I’m from the province and I applied for a passport. I was told that it will arrive on Dec. 11 tentative from Manila. I need it before the 10th sana. I’m wondering if I could pick up my PP in manila in advance?

    • If you are schedeuled to pick it up at the DFA on a given date, you can pick it up. If you paid for delivery service like LBC, I don’t know if picking up is possible

  144. Hello maam ..

    My appointment is tomorrow in dfa megamall
    I have requirments like

    Valid NBI clearance
    Police clearance
    Barangay clearance
    And my old high school I’d

    Is that enough for requirments for passporting?

    All is valid except my high school id

  145. I already have my passport but its under my maiden name. I want to chnage my last name name on my passport but dont have other ids under my married name except for my id for my current employer. Is that acceptable?

  146. Hi po. Nov 6 ako nag renew ng passport ng kids ko. Ang sinabi na release date ay between 17 to 21. Pero sa lbs receipt ay nov17. Kasi may flight po kami sana ng nov15. Naka booked na ang tickets namin. Ok lang naman na I rebook ulit Pero dapat ay till nov18 lang dahil yung lang ang avaliable time ng dad nila to leave from work. What will I do po. Possible ba nna ma deliver yung passport ng nov 17. Or pick up ko nalang para mas sure.kc pag nagpa rebook kami ng nov 18 Tapos hindi dumating masasayang ang tiket namin.

    • If LBC told you it’s Nov. 17, it might be on that day or the next day. I suggest you contact LBC so they know it’s a very urgent matter.

  147. Hi, What to do if i lost the official receipt of my passport. the release of my passport will bo on 10/10/2014. Thank You.

    • Go on the scheduled date of the release and bring valid IDs. Explain the DFA staff you lost your receipt. You need to show some IDs for proof you were the passport-holder.

  148. Hi, ask ko lang……isang primary ID lang ako meron, PRC ID, need ko pa ba magdala ng mga supporting documents/other IDs?

    • If you’re married, you need NSO Marriage certificate. You may not need to bring other IDs if they are satisfied with your PRC license in terms of your personal info on the ID and on your documents. To be sure, bring your supporting docs like NBI and Police clearance.

  149. Flight po ng mga kaibigan ko sa Dec.19 going here in Malaysia. Kakakuha pa lang nila ng passport ngayon sa DFA Legazpi. Hindi raw nag-aaccept ang DFA Legazpi ng rush at nung nakuha lang nila ang resibo dun lang nila nalaman na Dec.19 din ang releasing. Pwede ba silang kumuha n lang ulit sa Manila at ipacancel ung previous application nila at kung pwede ung ganun, paano po ang process? At kung hindi naman, paano po magrerequest sa dfa? Through email po ba? Hindi kc pwedeng marebook ang flight nila. Salamat po

    • If you have chosen the delivery method, you must have provided the address where they will deliver your passport. If you have forgotten what you put on the form of delivery, just try to remember it. It’s either home address or office address.

  157. HELLO MISS FEHL…. I’m a senior and I just read that seniors are exempted from making an appointment on line. And, will be given a courtesy lane for seniors when I get to DFA. I’m planning to renew my passport at SM MEGA MALL this coming Thursday and I’m coming from Sta. Rosa, Laguna. I have gone to an agency of NSO here in SM, and they said, I don’t need any documents of my birth certificate, cause my passport’s expiration date
    is 2011. And, I only need two valid ID’s ….. I have my senior citizen card and a barangay clearance. And, I have photocopies of first and last pages of my passport.

    Is this right? THANKS and I hope for your immediate reply. TAKE CARE … GOD BLESS. 🙂

  162. Tanong ko lang po kung paano ko makukuka na maaga ang passport ko expected date po ng releasing will be on October 20 – 27. Flight ko po ay sa Oct. 21.

    • Unfortunately, we follow the release date given to us. If you want, you can make a request at the DFA if you need it badly

  163. tanong ko lang. after ko sa encoding so nasa akin ung resibo na nagbayad ako ng passport. then pumunta ko sa bayaran ng courier para ma i deliver. kinuha nila resibo ko then ung binigay nila na receipt yung sa LBC. nasa kanila ung resibo ko ng passport. tama lang poba?

  164. hi po tanong kulang po if postal id ba ay valid na po ba,pra sa pgkuha ng passport?at ung original register marriege dertificate lng po ay pwede na po ba un gamitin sa pgkuha ng passport kapag marriege?ang meron lng po ako ay old id nung college po ak at old id sa pinagtrabahoan ko,at nbi ,police clearance at baranggay clearance po at postal sss E-1 at nso bc po…please reply me if pwede na me kumuha ng passport ….thanks po

    • Postal ID is not an acceptable primary ID. If you’re married, you need NSO BC, NSO MC, valid IDs. If no Valid IDs, you can bring supporting docs like NBI, Police clearance, old school ID. SSS E1 is not an ID. You need to bring all original and photocopy of all your documents. You can be approved if your personal info in the documents you presented are all consistent and similar. Your NBI and Police clearance must not be expired

      • Para po sa pag pa change status (from single) nang married na babae, kailangan bang yung primary ID ay updated na rin? (using surname of spouse?) ano po ba ang option kung walang available. Thanks.

        • Yes, all IDs must have same info and they must tally. You need to submit NSO Marriage certificate and valid IDs bearing your married name

  165. Hi ask q lng po pno po my application nko kso mali pla apelyido q sa birth q…mkakakuha pba aq ng passport nun pls reply

  166. Hi, I need to apply passport for my two household, mayroon na po sila Voter’s registration (no ID yet), Postal ID, Barangay ID, NBI Clearance, Police Clearance and NSO BC…lahat po ay recent documents. Will this satisfy DFA requitement? Thanks so much in advance 🙂

  167. depende po sa agent ng DFA na titingin sa mga requirements mo merinessa sa DFA RCO LA UNION po ayaw nila ng postal id lang dapat meron ka din ibang ID’s like drivers license BIR iD or voters pero kung iisa na id lng po lalo na kung postal id pa mejo may kahirapan po yung pag approved ng passport application mo. tingan mo na lang yung iba pa na req. sa likod ng application form. sana makakuha ka na din 🙂 good luck

  168. hi ask ko lng po kng pwde n po ung nbi clearance baranggay clearance police clearance nso at isang valid id voters id,,,, ok n po b un para , mkakuha ng passport? un po postal id po valid po b un para mkakuha ng passport thank you po …..

    • I think you’ll be ok if your NBI and Police clearance are not expired and all your IDs and documents have the same info (spelling, signature) about you. You also need NSO marriage certificate if you are married

  169. Hi ofw ung husband ko and need na nila irenew passport nila para s next contract pwedi koba sya irenew dito on his behalf?kng ipapadala nya passport nya..malayo kz s kanila yung kuhanan.thanks!

      • Helo po, ask q lang po f need ba talaga ang baptismal na may tatak for travel abroad? Luma kc yung bptismal q at malayo yong lugar kung saan aq nabinyagan..ok na kaya itong mga req. Ko sss id maiden name pa,nso bc,marriage cert.nso,nbi cler,police & brgy cler,cedula,voters cert. Married name na, tor & form 137,diploma,confirmation cert, at baptismal na luma..plz reply po:-(

        • Since you’re married, your IDs must also be using your new surname if you want to use your married status. You also need to submit NSO Marriage certificate

  170. Puede magrenew. Kakakuha ko lang nung sakin last Friday. 9 business days inaabot pag rush. Sa friend ko 9 days din inabot e. Ewan ko lang pag nde rush. Baka mas matagal pa. Puro photocopy lang kelangan pag renewal unlike pag bago ka pa lang kukuha. Goodluck. Pero by appointment lahat, sa website ka magappointment

  171. H, Fehl, good evening.

    I had renewed my passport earlier today at the DFA at Megamall, but had unfortunately lost the old passport/claimstub/receipt in the bus on the way home. I’d like to know as early as possible what I’ll need to do to claim my passport once it’s available for release. What’s the best number/department for the DFA to call?

    • If you know the date and time of release, I think you can still claim it, just explain though that you lost the stub and prepare for proof of identification. There is no phone number at their website. If you have claimed it successfully, tell us here if they accept IDs. 🙂 Thank you

  172. Nagset aq ng appointment sa Sept 15, 2014. Nagaalala lang ako kasi baka hindi tanggapin ung IDs ko kz wala akong primary ID. Alumni and School ID lng. di naman po valid yung postal. Supporting Documents ko eh Brgy Clearance, TOR, Yearbook, Cedula. Enough na po kaya yan. Salamat

  173. Hi. My mother has an NSO Birth Certificate, Marriage Contract and Baptismal Certificate and a Voter’s ID. She has no government ID’s because she is not currently employed. Would that be fine in her passport application?

    • Voter’s ID is accepted. I think your mom will be fine just make sure her documents have same info about her. Photocopy all her documents. She also needs to submit original copies of NSO BC and NSO MC if she is a first-time passport applicant

  174. Hi,
    Glad I saw this wondering if you could advice me on my passport, Im holding a different year of date on my passport but it was different from my birth certificate and I want to rectify it, what are the step in rectifying them what documents needed. I have with me my baptismal cert showing my parents name, my transcript of record high school and college. My birth cert. Is this sufficient enough to produce or shall I need more. Like affidavit from atty?. Thank you !

    • I suggest you go to your Municipal Local Civil Registrar office and start the update or adjustment of your birth certificate there.

  175. hi po nag apply po ako last september 2 sa dfa la union for passport . it went smooth naman po yng application pero ang kinababahala ko lang po eh yung name ng mother ko magkaiba yung nasa nso birth certif ko at sa naisulat ko sa application. . pero yung naisulat ko sa application ko eh yun yung tootong pangalan nya and notarized po yun. itatanung ko lng po sana kung mayprobelma po yun if nagkataon, ? thanks po

  176. hello po. taga la union po kami. dahil 45 days ang processing dto sa amin my son and my nephew came to dfa megamall to apply for a new passport at renewal respectively noong august 8 because they both need their passorts this august. their release date is aug 18 and paid an additional amount for delivery. i wonder if you could advise us if we could pick it up there as LBC here, the official courier advisPied us to ask dfa instead. we are very anxious on the real status of their passports.

    • If you paid for delivery service via LBC, LBC will deliver the passport at your doorstep, no need to pick them up at LBC. Just wait at home. Assuming you listed the correct address of your home/residential address. Also, if you’re not home, advise whoever might receive them. Tell your family members you are expecting passport delivery anytime soon

    • Yes you’re ok with those requirements for renewal. Make sure you have photocopy of your old passport + requirements. if you’re female and married, you need NSO MC

      • wat do i nid, the requirements for my passport renewal, nid ko kc mgrenew diz week, last feb. 22, 2014 lng ngExpired and ilang days/ weeks b4 ko makuha after ko mgApply?

  177. thank you for your reply maam. can you please specify what nso mc and bc is? marriage certificate and birth certificate? since i am single the marriage certificate would not be applicable to me. many thanks in advance.

  178. hello po ulit gusto k lng po tanong ulit kasi magpapa appointment ako ulit kong okey na ba tong mga requirements k here’s the list po nso birth certificate,nbi,police clearance,barangay clearance,voter’s id,voter’s certificate,police clearance id card po ok na po b sure na po bang makakakuha na ako para po d masayang pagpunta k?waiting po for ur reply tnx:)

  179. hi. gud eve.. ask q lng po what are the reasons why delay po ang release ng pasport.? is there any problem about my application? or sa office ng DFA? thankyou a lot.

  180. Good day po. Mag apply po kami passport for my 2 yrs old son. Does he still need to pass affidavit of support and consent and the affidavit of explanation why the child is not attending school?

    • If you will be with him when you apply for his passport and when he travels, you don’t need affidavits. You are his mother so you don’t need it

  181. Hello po, ask ko lang kung ano po ggawin, last 2009 nag apply mother ko ng passport with d help of my brother, sad to say he died and we dnt know n ang status ng application, now we apply for a new passport and sabi sa dfa davao where we apply meron daw pending application, so paano po ggawin namin para magkaron ng passport mother ko we needed badly kc gusto sya ipasyal abroad. Need help tnx in advance!

    • Tell the DFA Davao what happened, they will probably tell your mom to apply for new passport due to loss passport and she will need to submit requirements according to DFA instruction

  182. Thank you my id driver license is not expired pero ask ku posible aku makakuha ng pasport na 1 valid id lang ang meron aku san po kaya aku pwede magpaapointment ng schedule na aceptable ang mqa suporting documentary at 1 valid id thnk you

    • If my NSO BC and NSO MC ka and all your documents are not expired and have similar info about you (name, birthdate, etc) and 1 ID, you’ll be ok

  184. Hello po, nagpa-appointment po ako sa aseana di po ko in allow kmuha ng passport wla dw po kse akong valid Id sbe ko po kung pde yung certificate nung voters ko Hindi dw po pde yun pinipiga nya ko sa valid Id e kelangan ko na po kc mkakuha para mkapagpabook pra mkaalis na this October.

  187. Hi @mayah
    How was your appointment at DFA? Im worried as well with my ID’s I have an appointment Aug 9 for renewal and change of surname. My available IDs are only the following
    1. Old College ID
    2. Old and New Employment ID
    3. Birth Cert. from NSO
    4. Marriage Cert. from NSO
    5. Police Clearance
    6. Brgy. Clearance
    7. Postal ID

    I hope that would be enough for me to renew my passport.

    • It went well. Thank u!

      I think that should be enough. They got the original copy of my NSO birth cert. Photocopy of my company ID and voter’s ID, then brgy clearance and police clearance. So ok lang kahit walang NBI clearance.

  188. good pm po magtatanong po aq about sa passport ng anak q..kc july 3 po aq nag apply ng passport at release date ay july 14 po pero nakatawag na po aq sa express delivery at sabi nila need qq pa po pumunta dun para sa isang documents sa pangasinan pa po aq…qng pwede po sana sa email q nlg po sana ipasa ang documents na need nila ,,,pwede q po ba makuha email ng DFA megamall sa inyo? plsease response po

    • These are the contacts of DFA from DFA website. Couldnt find DFA Megamall’number (632) 834-4000
      (632) 834-3000

  189. gud pm how many working days ang release ng new passport s of today? we are from la union and the.consular ofis here says it will take 45 days. my son needs one this august. pls advtise.thanOks

    • There is a delay going on right now so that 45 days release must be true. There is no certain announcement when the delay will stop and the normal releasing will be back

  190. The Megamall DFA gives out a Passport Slip after going through the renewal process, tapos they stapled a little note about Passporting Steps where you will find in the bottom a mobile number for “text only” inquiry/concerns/passport release dates, pero walang sumasagot, i can assume maraming nakapila kaya mabagal reply, any idea where else i can call to check if my passport is ready for pick-up?

    • I guess there is no employee who’s real job to reply for those inquiries so we must not expect for reply. The release date is on the receipt anyway.

  191. Hi,

    ask ko lang kung pwede ba ako mag renew ng passposrt sa SM Megamall kaso yung sa akin wala na akong passport naiwan sa malaysia kaya travel pass lang ang meron ako as of now and also expired narin yung passport ko. ano po ba ang dapat kung gawin.?

    please asdvise thanks.

    • You need your old passport in renewing one. If you lost it, you need police report and notarized affidavit of the loss passport

  192. Good day! Ask ko lang po,what if di nakuha passport sa releasing date na nakalagay? Ok lang po ba yun?

    • You can still claim it, make sure though it’s not so far away on the releasing date coz DFA dispose stuff after 6 months according to their site

  193. Hello po gud morning ask k lng po Kong pwedi na as a requirements ang nbi clearance,police clearance,nso birth certificate, thanks po para po maka pa appointment na thank you po wait for your reply:)

    • Please see the requirements checklist in the article. If you don’t have primary ID, submit supporting docs. Bring your NBI and Police Clearance and make sure they’re valid. The DFA will be the one who will tell you if you’re approved or not. If you’re married, you also need NSO Marriage Certificate

  194. mag renew po ako ng passport green pasport po yung akin ang ang papel lang po ako na mayrun birthcert, postal id, voters cert. pwede na po ba yun.

  195. my document is … NSO bc , baptismal certificate , sss e-1 , form 137 , old id school 2004-2005 , 2005-2006 ,police clearance , brnggy clearance . nbi clearance .its ok this to get me passport ?

    • SSS E1 is not an ID. Sounds like you are a student. I recommend you bring all the docs you have mentioned and make sure they are valid (not expired) and has similar info about you

  196. Good day , Hi! okay n po ba na requirements ang SSS ID, NBI clearance & old School ID, TIN ID sa pagaapply ng passport? Thank You

  197. hi good noon.

  199. i got hit on my NBI clearance … may gumamit ng buong info ko .. pero iba ang year ng birthday ko .. anu po gagawin ko ? worried na po ako 🙁

    • YOu shouldn’t worry. There are many Filipinos who experience the same. If you’re not doing anything wrong, don’t worry 🙂

      • gud pm po .. pumunta po ako ngayon sa DFA for my appointment kaso po kulang p po yung requirements ko .. ang binigay na other valid id sakin is , DRIVER’s licence , sss id , at voter’s id … kaso po wala p po ako nung at matagal po makuha yung mga id na yun … pwde po ba dahil ko nlng NBI clearance , at form 137 ? thanks po …

  200. Hi.. ASk ko lng po kung pwede na requirements ang old school id but expired na and company Id & NBI clearance tska NSO Birth Certh. ?? Thank You

    • I think you would be fine just make sure your NBI is valid and company ID has same info with your documents. Also bring another supporting docs like Baptismal, yearbook coz company ID is not certain to be acceptable ID

    • I suggest you renew your primary IDs first before you apply for passport because the DFA wants all documents and IDs to have similar and consistent info. If anything is different (ie: signature or birth date) you might have some problems. Since you’re married now, you must use your new surname on your IDs too

      • Maam ask ko lng po if pede kya ung voters id copry n gling sa munisipyo kc d po wala p ung voters id ko.tsaka police clearance as primary id?wala po kc akong valid id.renewal po ako then change stat.

        • Bring old passport, NSO BC and supporting docs. Since new status ka, bring also NSO MC. Make sure your supporting docs use your new married surname

  210. Fehl, hi my Wife, who is a Filipina citizen is having a difficult time getting her Passport and we don’t know on what primary id which will take less than the time we want and pay alot of money. This is what she has as documents: NBI (green paper w/ picture), NSO birth cert, Postal Id, BIR id ( no picture). We are getting news these documents aren’t enough for her to get her Passport. She doesn’t have a employment nor a drivers license. What other ids are acceptable she can get in which the DFA will accept if she has no Primary picture id or a fast and low fee for a picture id which is acceptable for her to get her Passport. thanks, Andrew

    • Let her bring her college yearbook, that would help a lot and also Baptismal certificate. Postal ID and TIN ID are not acceptable ID. DFA needs documents showing proof of the applicant’s name, birth date, address, parents etc. to prove identity. Make sure all the docs you bring have similar info especially birth date, spellings, and signatures

      • She has a Baptismal cert of our Daughter, a BIR id, Postal id, NBI (with picture) and her NSO Marriage cert (her married name), and lastly a NSO birth Cert. This is all she has to provide as docs. What other docs she can get if she not work or attended college or finished school? Does the DFA keep your docs or do they keep copys and return your original docs? We picked up her NSO birth cert and we don’t want to have to purchase and wait for another NSO birth cert because i have heard the DFA takes and keeps your NSO birth cert.

        • If you need more supporting doc, let her bring a yearbook from Highschool or college if needed. Yes the DFA will get the original NSO BC and MC for first time applicants.

          • And they will return it right? once they send the passport? Because I kinda got worried when I got home from processing my passport for 1st time, I thought nhulog or na missplace ko, I realize hindi pala nila binalik sa akin.

          • Do they return your NSO birth cert and Marriage NSO cert docs back when your passport is delivered or do they keep your docs? My Wife had to wait two weeks or more to get these docs and she plans on copying her docs to give to the DFA to keep not her originals or she will need to go to the NSO office AGAIN and purchase these docs AGAIN for her u.s visa. sigh :/

          • For first time applicants DFA will keep the original copies of NSO Birth Certificate and Marriage Certificate as their reference

  211. good afternoon po kukuha po ako ng passport this coming thursday .nag file na rin po ako ng appointment .. ok na po ang id ko TIN ID PHILHEALTH ID NSO NBI. paki reply po kung ok na po

    • TIN and Philhealth are not acceptable primary IDs. Bring more supporting documents like yearbook, Baptismal, or if you have Voter’s ID and Driver’se License (not expired) it would help

  212. Hi! may I ask if the time that was stamped on my receipt is between 2-5pm, can i still claim it after 5pm?

  213. Hi i would like to ask about the processing time for getting a passport, is there a difference between getting it in sm megamall and in aseana?im from cebu, it takes 30days to rush my passport so i guess it would be better if i would get it in manila, what do you think?any suggestions?hoping for your quick response,thanks

    • I didn’t experienced yet getting one in Manila. I guess it’s a little bit faster since the head office is there so delivery is faster maybe a day or 2 compared to provinces and some parts of the Philippines.


    • There is an appointment for Family applicants or group of applicants. But if your son already had one, you better use the date if you’re in a rush. If you’re not in a rush, you can make a new appointment for both your son and daughter. Old appointment then of your son will be disregard

  215. ask ko lang po if anung requirements ang kailangan sa pag-renew ng passport (senior citizen) and kung need pa ng appointment and how much po yung fee?

  216. Hi..good day po..ask.ko lang po if okay n bang id ung present company id,old college Id, tor, brgy clearance.pra po if di pde.mkahanap pa q iba pang valid id.thanks.

    • Rush 7 working days as of now. But for some circumstances, it might be longer. If they told you the date, then expect your passport within that date. We have no choice but to follow the DFA

    • TIN ID and Postal ID are not considered primary IDs. For those who don’t have enough valid IDs, the DFA always tell the applicants to bring more supporting docs like yearbook, NBI clearance etc. Check the list at the back of the application form 🙂

      • Hello po good afternoon.

        • Yup, you can apply for passport same day. Make sure you and your child bring the requirements. You need to submit valid IDs bearing your new surname (married name) and NSO BC + NSO Marriage Certificate

      • Hello po. Tinatanggap ba nila ang supporting documents lng without any valid iDs?

        NSO. Live Birth and Marraige Cert.
        Form 137
        NBI/ Police/ and other clearances.Commelec voters certificate(Issued in our province)


          • Very unlucky. My mother went to DFA Iloilo they never accept supporting documents still looking for valid ID. Kahit ilang beses na pabalik balik ang nanay ko nakikisuyo. The voters ID still in Manila the commelec in our town not sure also kung kailan ma deliver.Pagsabihan pa naman sya ng officer ” wala ka bang kasama? D mo binasa ang mga list of requirements” too bad.

      • good day po merun lang po akong voters certification,brgy clearnce community tax certificate nbi clearance,philihealth i.d postal i.d government i.d nso birth certifcate..police clearnce at static info sa sss…do you think that would be enough para accept ng dfa?kasi matagal pa po sss.i d ko aside from that wala pa akong ibang governmnt i.d ..lahat po ng document ko ngayon ay bago pa…

    • hi there! i have my passport expired year 2000..may i ask if what process i would undego? am i going to apply for a new passport or can i renew even if its expired too many years ago? thanks in advance..

      • Yes you can renew it even if it’s been expired 10 years or more as long as it’s a Philippine passport. My dad’s passport was expired 15 years ago and he renewed it only last year. Same procedure is done to the processing. Just bring your old passport and 2 valid acceptable IDs, your NSO birth certificate and photocopied of the docs mentioned. Photocopy your old passport include also the last page with signature. If you will renew in Megamall, you need appointment

    • Good day! I would like to ask if i can still get my passport after a week of the scheduled date of release? It’s supposed to be on thursday but because of my work I cannot get my passport on scheduled time. I hope you can make time to answer my question..thank you very much!!!
