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

      • 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.

  3. TIP LANG PO PARA SA ONLINE APPOINTMENT:
    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
