How to Renew Passport in the Philippines – Requirements, Procedures 2020

The latest procedures and requirements on how to renew passport in the Philippines this 2020, list of fees and cost of renewing passports are in this page, too. Renewing passport here is easier and faster. Unlike before, we have to wait for many weeks to receive our Philippine passport.

The new Philippine passport is called ePassport, shortcut for electronic passport as it contains electronic information of the passport holder including biometrics and digital signature. The DFA (Department of Foreign Affairs) requires everyone to renew for ePassport. Foreign embassies strictly require ePassports now. Read the statement below:

According to the DFA,

“Per the regulations of the DFA and the standards set by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), all non-machine readable passports may no longer be extended beyond October 31, 2015 and must be completely phased out by November 24, 2015,”

All Filipino nationals holding Machine Readable-Ready Passports (MRRP; green passports) and Machine Readable Passports (MRP; maroon passports) will no longer be allowed to apply for an extension of the validity of these passports after October 31, 2014,”

New ePassport vs Old Passport

Renewing passport nowadays has less hassles because there are only few requirements and the processing is amazingly fast. You don’t need to bring passport sized photos anymore. Also renewing passport is faster than applying for one the first time, simply because your details are already stored in the DFA database. The staff will just check them and update them in case there are new info to update about you – ie: change of marriage status and surname for females.

Passport Renewal Requirements 2020

  • Personal Appearance of the applicant
  • Application form (download it here)
  • 1 Government issued ID (if without gov’t ID, see list of acceptable IDs here) – original and photocopy
  • Old Passport – original and photocopy pages 1,2,3 (amendment)
  • PSA Birth Certificate – original and photocopy (if old passport was issued May 1995)
  • Processing fee (see list below)

Regular Processing – P950 – 12 working days
Rush Processing – P 1200 – 7 working days

For minor (below 18) personal appearance of the applicant and either 1 of the parents

Passport Renewal Procedures:

Passport appointment or walk-in appointment:

  • If you are in a rush or emergency, you can apply to renew your Philippine passport at the DFA office in your region. They are commonly serving first-come-first-served basis and you don’t need to get an appointment online via this way. UPDATE: As of now, only selected DFA offices now allow online appointment
  • If you are not in a rush, you can make a schedule online to get an appointment. Some DFA branches listed below offer that service now. Although they are the ones who give the date of your appointment (it may be weeks from now or even a month depending on the number of applicants). Once you have appointment, arrive on that date and you can process your passport faster.

Just get or claim your passport on the date stamped on your receipt. What if you can’t come on that date? No worries, you can still claim your passport by going to the DFA Releasing Area and show your valid IDs and receipt. You have at least 6 months to claim it otherwise, it will be disposed.

  1. Good day po sa inyo. Maraming beses na po akong nakapagrenew ng passport ko at ang latest ko po ay epassport na na kailangan ko na rin irenew. Bakit po ako hinihingan ng DFA this time ng Bureau Immigration ID para sa naturalization ko this time? Matagal ko ng naibigay sa DFA ang BI ID ko at naKa encode na yun sa records ko sa DFA. It will take BI 3 to 4 weeks to locate my records. Bago po bang requirement for naturalized Filipino citizens ang hinihingi ng DFA? Isa po itong napakalaking gastos at abala para sa amin na matagal ng may passport. Your response will be highly appreciated.

  3. Based on the passport.gov.ph site as of 01/07/2019:

    CORE REQUIREMENTS

    1. Confirmed Online Appointment
    2. Accomplished Application Form
    3. Personal appearance
    4. Current ePassport with photocopy of data page
    5. Original PSA authenticated documents that will support the change of name and/or marital status (if applicable)
    – Marriage Contract
    – Annotated Birth Certificate
    – Annotated Marriage Contract to show annulment/divorce/court ordered instruction
    – Death Certificate of Spouse

    From what I understand, you will only need to provide Birth Certificate if there’s a change of name and/or marital status or if it’s treated as new application due to circumstances e.g. lost passport. If none, then there’s no need to?

  4. Saan po ba makikita ang valid reason bakit nadi deny ang renewal ng passport? Nagpa renew po ako ng passport at sabi po ng DFA staff eh may posibilidad po na ma denied or ma delayed ito ng 3-4 months. Sinabi niya ito after kunin ang copy ng data and last page ng passport ko, hindi kinuha sa akin ang dala kong copy ng PSA (NSO) at NBI. Since nandun na ako sa DFA Lucena (May 24, 2018), nag agree na lang ako sa mga possibilities na discussed niya sa akin. Valid pa ng 7 months ang passport ko at gusto ko marenew ng maaga kasi may mga offer sa akin na at least 2 years validity dapat ang passport kaya ako nagparenew. Pinasulat pa ako na I request to cancel my valid passport. Paki discuss po sana sa akin ng mga na denied ang passport renewal at ano rin nangyari sa mga naibayad. Express processing po at home delivery po payment ko. Please enlighten me.

      • Hello po, ask lang po sana ako kung ma release ba talaga ang passport po even if it was suspended. Kasi sa wife ko nasuspended dahil kumuha siya nang passport gamit ang married name niya as new applicant at hindi na nya iniliagay ang luma niyang passport information…nang kunin na sana namin ang passport sinabihan siya nga suspended daw kasi hindi niya idineklara ang luma niya passport kaya antay daw siya ng 3-4 months bago makuha at hindi pa sure..may alam po ba kayo na ganito ang sitwasyon??? Please advise…tnx

  6. Trying to apply for a passport renewal for my wife at DFA on-line. On last Friday 4th May the next available date was end of September 2018, over 5 months away, and today it says no available slots on all the Manila DFA locations. I keep reading that it much quicker now for the processing of a passprt; thats good, but if you can not get an appointment, what the point of being faster in the processing. I feel sorry for those that want to take a holiday or go abroad.

    • Ano po kaya ibig sabihin nito?

      It appears your personal information matches one or several other records of individuals who have similar passport information/personal details who may have violated provisions of RA 8239: The Philippine Passport Act of 1996. “Passport processors/evaluators at your chosen application site may request you to produce additional documents and corresponding proof of identity upon interview, in order to ascertain that you are a different individual and consequently approve your passport application.”

  21. Hello!

    I inadvertently entered my birthday as October 26, instead of October 28, on the application form. I only noticed the error after I printed the application form. Is there a way for me to change the entry on the birth date field on the form? Or do I simply need to call the attention of the officer who’ll assist me during my scheduled appointment about the error? I’m afraid that this might affect the processing of my passport.

    Thanks,

    Roger

    Reply
    • Try calling the DFA about the error. I also made the same mistake. I entered the wrong birth place and when I called the DFA branch in Zamboanga about my concern, they told me that it’s okay as long as I mention it to the officer who’ll be assisting me so that they could correct the error. Hope that helps. ?

    • Yes, pwede na kayo sumabay ng application, kasama yun sa privilege ng may 7 y/o below na applicant. Share ko lang yung experience ko nun Jan 25 2018, nagtry kami mag apply ng passport ng 2 yr old baby ko sa satellite office dyan sa ali mall, di na kami tinanggap 11:30am kami nakarating sa site.
      Nakakafrustrate kasi limited lang pala slots na i accomodate nila per day. Wala naman problem sana kung nag bigay ng advisory online since may website naman. Bago pa ako magdecide na iprocess yung passport namin e nagbasa basa ako ng blogs at yung sa dfa website mismo. Paasa lang sa courtesy lane jan sa ali mall. Di ko lang sure kung pati sa main office ganun ang system. Mas prefer ko pa yung by appointment nalang sana. E bago ka makapagproceed sa appointment nakalagay don PWDs, senior, pregnant, single mother, minors 7 yrs old below e no need ng appointment. sablay na sistema, if may changes sana ipost nila yung advisory online…hindi yung sa pinto lang. mababasa ng applicant..sayang pamasahe at effort…

  33. Hi! Just want to double check if what you posted is all you need to bring for renewal of passport?
    Personal Appearance of the applicant
    Application form (download it here)
    1 Government issued ID (if without gov’t ID, see list of acceptable IDs here) – original and photocopy
    Old Passport – original and photocopy pages 1,2,3 (amendment)
    NSO Birth Certificate – original and photocopy (if old passport was issued May 1995)

    My passport and my kids are all the new ones (issued last 2012/2013). No need for NSO or PSA certificates or other supporting documents?

  35. Hello po! I badly need some advise. Sana po matulungan nyo ako. Its so early pa naman kaso I want to know the possibilities and alternatives sa case ko. My passport will be expired by February 2019. We are planning to travel abroad by last week of August up to September 2018, for almost a month. By that period my passport will only be valid for 6 months or less and I am afraid that by the time of visa application maging factor pa yun ng visa denial. Or if ever I will be granted a visa baka yung Immigration officer sa Naia or airline check-in staff di na ako payagan umalis ng bansa. By last week ng May 2018 ang plan namin mag lodge ng visa application sa embassy. Sa tingin ko by January or February 2018 dapat mag process na ako ng passport renewal (or extension?) para there will be enough time just in case mag ka delay sa DFA.

    Possible po ba ang naiisip ko? Or theres no way na makapag renew/extend ako ng passport validity that early? How about asking for valid passport cancellation? Para makapag renew ng passport?

    Pa advise po please. Thank you.

    • My daughter’s passport will be expired on January 2019 pero nparenew ko habang nsa bakasyon ako s pinas last August lng at na released naman agad after a week kse we are also planning to travel next year kaya habang nsa bakasyon ako pina renew ko na dahil minor lang sya at pra nde mgkron ng problema sa pag lodge nmin ng visa application next year. Policy kse ng immigration na at least 6 months valid ang passport mo allowed ka mag travel. Pero kng malapit na ma expired at nsa ibang bansa ka u only allowed to return to your home country but you are not allowed to travel in other countries.

    • Hi Grace,

      Definitely Hindi ka pasasakayin kapag less than 6 months valid Ang passport. Na experience ko Na Yan, at nalaman ko pa NSA airport Na ako. Malayo pa naman Ang travel mo you have so much time to renew. You can actually set an online appointment na, pagka alam ko by now December sched Na Ang makukuha mong schedule.

  37. Hi there. I really need a passport and there are no any available slots in DFA Lipa and in Metro Manila. I really need one as I need to travel on January. The only available that I can see is in Davao. Pwede ba mag apply ng passport kahit hindi ka taga dun? If so, can they deliver from Davao to Batangas because I am from Batangas. I’m not sure if DFA Lipa accepts walk-in applicants.

  43. Hello po! Ask ko lang po kung paano magrenew ng passport. Dual Citizen po ako, pinanganak ako sa America at yung both parents ko Filipino. Ask ko lang kung paano ang gagawin ko, Nung 2001 ako dumating ng Pilipinas at simula nun hindi na naayos mga papeles ko kasi yung mother ko po nilayasan kami ng father ko, kaso yung father ko nag ibang bansa din. Bale nasa father side ako kaso hindi naayos lahat ng papers ko at napabayaan dahil walang magaasikaso.. Nung 2011 umuwi ang father ko at nagpunta kami ng sa US Embassy para irenew ang passport ko kaso ang sabi nila yung mother daw ang kelangan. So since mag 18 na ako this year kelangan ko pa ba ang mother ko? At pwede ba ako gumawa ng Philippine Passport ko?

  47. Hi there fehl gud day. i have an inquiry regarding passport which i thought you might have encountered. The expiry date of my passport is on aug 7 2018. Also on 2018 i have scheduled a flight to japan on march. This would mean that my travel now falls within the 6months validity period prior to expiry. When would you suggest be the appropriate month to set an appointment?and can i set it as early as june now?and for the rest of 2017, am i still qualified to travel having booked 3 destinations for the remainder of 2017?. Thank you very much for your kind assistance.ryan

    Reply
    • Your passport will no longer be accepted for your Japan trip on March 2018. Immigration Officer might deny your entry. Be sure to have it renewed months prior to your flight – that is if you already have a valid visa to japan in your current passport. If you don’t have a visa yet, you should have it renewed early and make sure you have the new passport at hand before applying for Japan visa. If you have travels for the rest of 2017, use it first. Get an appointment for passport renewal by early January 2018 to be safe.

  49. Hello everyone! tanong po, from “Single” Status passport mag-renew po as “Married”, anong ilalagay ko po kaya sa “Surname” on online application form, Maiden Surname ko pa din since am renewing my old or automatically Married surname na? Want to double check as to avoid any hassles/aberya pagdating na sa DFA, or pwede naman i-edit dun mismo? At para di din sayang ang efforts am from NCR dadayuhin pa namin probinsya para magrenew kasi no slots na until Sept 2017 dito sa NCR dahil sa mga travel agencies. :/

    Also, may kasama kaming kid 2yo, pag pinila po ba namin sya sa courtesy lane sya lang ang ma-ke-cateran tas kami ng asawa ko pipila ulit sa normal lanes or pwede isabay yung sa amin or ipila na lang lahat sa regular lanes? Marami pong salamat sa makakasagot! 🙂 Happy weekend!

    Reply
    • Charlotte,

      I’m not sure about the surname changes but whoever the one attending to you at DFA normally would ask if all details are ok….so Pwede ka dun magpa correct.

      About regular appointment naman, since sabi mo no slots na until Sept2017, I would suggest to still get regular appointments the earliest u can get online for the adults ha. Kung ok naman lahat documents mo Kahit bukas pumila kayo sa courtesy lane with your kid. Someone already posted here na when pinila kid Nya sa courtesy lane eh isinabay na rin sya sa pag renew. I don’t know if luck lng yun but no harm in trying. Just make sure na dalhin mo rin ung online appointment form mo just in case itanong duon Kung may appointment ka. If makalusot then you can just cancel ur online appointment.

    • unlikely. Yung gwardya pa lang titignan na mga dokumento mo : hahanapin appointment form etc.

      Sana man lang may Visa ka na.

      and by the way there is no such thing as “courtesy lane” — ang courtesy na sinasabi e pauunahin ka lang sa pila (kids, pwd’s, ofws, matatanda) . And I believe nag-Online reservation din mga yun kase nga kahet may appointment form ka pa pagdating mo dun pipila ka pa rin. (otherwise dadagsa ang mga walk-ins na mga bata, matanda, pwd etc kung ganun lang kadali ang walk-ins)

      If pasok ka sa mga NSA list Na pupwede pumila sa courtesy lane, yes no need for online application, Just download the application form and bring it to DFA on the day Na mag walk-in ka together with the other requirements. My senior mom was assisted in Megamall even without the downloaded form. Nagka prob Lang sya kasi the BC she had was not properly authenticated. Try checking the complete list of those people allowed to line up sa courtesy lane Baka sakali.

        If sa duration ng travel mo sa Thailand ay below 6 months valid Ang passport mo malamang Di ka palusutin sa airport. Kung makalusot ka man sa airport dito sa pinas Baka sa Thailand ka magka problema, may possibility pa na magbayad ka ng malaki as penalty sa ibang bansa. So yes dapat mag renew kna.

    • base sa experience ko, mas mabuting sa embassy ka na lang magparenew at i-bypass yung pila ng mga first timers, kids, persons w disabilities, elders sa pilipinas… mabubwisit ka lang sa sistema.

      Renewal na parang hindi renewal.——(Ganun din ang presyo, bilang ng araw 7 0r 15, Ganun din requirements kahet e-Passport pa (been there, done that). Basically parang first-timer ka lang din ang dadanasin mo sa pilipinas.

    • Passport appointment or walk-in appointment:

      If you are in a rush or emergency, you can apply to renew your Philippine passport at the DFA office in your region. They are commonly serving first-come-first-served basis and you don’t need to get an appointment online via this way. UPDATE: As of July 2016, only selected DFA offices now allow online appointment.

    Ask ko lang po, my aunt is in US right now and gusto nya magrenew ng green passport nya issued 2006. Nabasa ko sa DFA page na 1 of the requirement is NSO birth certificate. However, when we requested for her birth certificate negative result. Is it possible na NSO marriage certificate lang ang ipresent nya sa Philippine Consulate since renewal na lang naman siya.

    Please advise. Thank you very much

    Reply
    • Gerlie, the PSA Birth cert is a newly added requirement for those still with old passport green & maroon. I would assumed that her BC presented previously was not yet in secpa & probably from her municipal place of birth. It turned negative coz no copy yet in NSO so better send a copy to NSO & apply for late registry.

  93. I have an MRP passport with expiration date of Dec. 2017. I already have an appointment set for Jan. 23, 2017. I’m kinda confused with the birth certificate requirement though.

    A.) The blog says:

    NSO Birth Certificate – original and photocopy (if old passport was issued May 1995)

    B. ) DFA website says:

    Machine Readable Passport (MRP without IC Chip logo) issued in the year 2007 needs a birth cert.

    * So if I understand it correctly, my old passport is not in any of the categories listed in both the blog and DFA website. Does that mean a birth certificate is not required?

    Reply
    • I’ve been checking out requirements, too. And I understood it that same as you did. The birth certificate is no longer required. Do a double check, though. Your passport should be brown with a chip (rectangle with a circle inside) below the word PASAPORTE.

      Also, when I renewed my passport in 2013, I think they did not ask for a birth certificate even though I brought one.

      Reply
      • Well, my passport is an MRP without a chip. I would be certain about the birth certificate being not required when renewing if I already have an ePassport (the one with the chip). But I have the one without the chip and this is what creates the confusion.

        My Mother recently renewed her passport a few days ago and she said that a birth cert was not required. I believe she had the the MRP without chip passport too. I’m just making sure of everything before going through with this.

I am currently working as OFW in Australia. To have all the documents ready the way they want it I need to spend 30k pesos. I just decided to go home next week, just book my flight, and will be in the PHP for 3 days just to renew my sons passport. I am just worried that they will not accept as I don’t have appointment for the said renewal. I really need it as only my eldest passport was expired and they need to fly by March to be with us.

    • Erwin, I think Di na requirement Ang OEC sa OFWs, better go to POEA (dito ata yung parang one stop shop for OFWs) at DFA Robinsons (Ito naman ata Ang DFA branch exclusive for OFWs).

      Meanwhile, check mo ulit Ang list nG allowed persons Sa courtesy lane Malay mo Meron Isa dun na pasok ka example Baka naman May kilala ka Sa any branch nG DFA, DFA employee can give referrals 3 persons per month para Sa courtesy lane, or Baka naman govt employee ka may list Kung sino sino pde Sa courtesy lane.

      Kung Di ka tlga ubra Sa courtesy lane, Mas mainam na mag appointment ka pa rin khit Sa January pa Ang available….then mag try kna punta Sa 2 mentioned above offices and mag try ka na. You can cancel naman your appointment kapag umokey na renewal mo dun Sa nabanggit Kong offices.

        • Erwin, definitely yung anak mong 1 yr old pde Sa courtesy lane. No harm in trying Kung Isabay mo ung renewal mo, Kaya I ready mo na rin ang documents mo with connection Sa pagiging OFW mo. Sure or not na makagamit ka nG courtesy lane I suggest na magpa online appointment ka pa rin Gaya nG sabi ko Sa previous reply ko. Madali naman I cancel yun if ever.

  117. Hi,

    Can anyone here help me and give info on the fastest way to renew a passport. I need to renew my passport for my US visa application and I need to have the renewal ASAP. I tried to look for a slot for online application but the earliest available slot is already in December. Is there any other way? Thank you so much in advance for the help.

    Reply
    • Marc,

      The fastest is via courtesy lane in which there are only specific person/s allowed to line up without the appointment. If you are: PWD/Senior Citizen, Childre below 7yrs, OFW, Etc…better check internet for complete list of those who can use the courtesy lane. Or if your case is a medical emergency or death, you can use courtesy lane. Or if u know someone working at DFA, employees are allowed to give 3 referrals per month.
      If you didn’t fall in any of the mentioned situation or person then appointment online is the only way.

          • Thanks for your reply! We went there yesterday. I accompanied my 2-year-old and my husband accompanied my 5-year-old. We arrived around 3-3:30pm and finished 5pm. We were accommodated as a family because their rule is 1child = 1adult. There was no hassle. When entering the gate we just said courtesy lane because of my kids (minor = forgot if it is 7 years old and below or below 7 years old). I prepared everything we needed beforehand. I printed out our forms from the DFA website, photocopied our old passports (front and back) and IDs, and I had our birth certificate in PSA paper. Make sure your birth certificate and marriage certificate are all in PSA paper and not NSO paper. So, when we arrived there we had no hassle at all. I just handed over our forms and waited for our number. Hope this info could help others in the same situation too.

        • Arlyn, wow that’s good news! And thank you rin for coming back here sa thread to share this good news….at least may patotoo at additional info tayo nakuha sa experience mo. Goodluck sa kung saan man Ang travels nyo!

  124. Hi, I have a question. My passport expired last year September 26, 2015. If I renew it do I have to bring a birth certificate? I don’t have a copy of my birth certificate yet. I only have the photocopy of my birth certificate. I lost the original copy. I already requested for a new copy however it will come 3-5 working days from now. and I really want to apply for my passport earlier next week. Is it okay if I don’t have the NSO birth certificate? I have all other requirements especially my two past expired passports. Hope to hear from you

    Reply
    • Jacob,
      If old passport is an e-passport, no need for the birth certificate if you are applying for renewal. For renewal, you only need the old epassport and 2 supporting documents. Please refer to list in DFA website for supporting documents.

    • If you are in a rush or emergency, you can apply to renew your Philippine passport at the DFA office in your region.

    • Have ur docs ready at pumila kna agad Sa courtesy lane. Then ask mo yung NSA DFA if pde na wag muna I cancel Ang old passport mo kc kamo may travel kpa. assuming na Di pa under 6 months valid Ang passport ha. If applicable p din yung Rush nilang 7 days this is actually 9 days including weekends, Kaya definitely Di mo na aabutin ang release. Mag iwan kna LNG ng authorization letter Kung sinoman s relative mo Ang kukuha ng new passport mo. But you need to mail back ur existing passport Sa representative mo kc need I present ung old passport at bubutasan Nila yun saka LNG irelease Ang new passport. Also try ask Baka naman pwede extension na LNG ng validity para maka vacation ka Sa December without renewing ur passport. Though alam ko Wala na yung service nilang pang validity extension, Pero Malay mo mapagbigyan ka. good luck!

Requirements 1) old passport which I supposed na e-passport na ung old nyo. If not po kc may additional requirements. 2) 1 Gov issued picture ID like SSS/GSIS, PRC ID, Senior Citizen ID. 3) 2 supporting documents like PSA Marriage Contract, NBI Clearance, Brgy Clearance, Police Clerance etc. iphotocopy nyo na rin ung page 2 (data page) nG old e-passport nyo. Plus syempre Yung application form, you can download copy from DFA website.

  136. Hi, good afternoon! I’m just a little confused if a BC is really needed (some say yes, some say it’s not needed). My sister told me that e-passport holders don’t need BC for renewal (which is for her case) but for me, I’m not an e-passport holder, mine was issued last October 2009 (looks like it’s maroon to me, same color as the e-passport just without the box image below the word ‘Pasaporte’) and expired in 2014. Do I still need to bring a BC? Also, if I have a BC that I got last 2014/2015, can I use that or do I need to get a newly issued one? Thank you!!

    Reply
    • Also, I have a senior citizen with me who will be renewing and she will be doing a walk in. I was looking at the Gov.ph courtesy lane requirements, says needed are BC and valid ID. Her passport was issued also in 2009 and expired 2014. BC still needed and if ever, can we use a BC that was issued in 2014/2015? Thanks again!

      Reply
      • Just an update in case anyone like me is wondering. I just spoke with DFA, I need a certified true copy of the BC, government ID, passport and photocopies of the passport and ID. For senior citizen, same, if married, certified true copy of marriage certificate is needed also. Doesn’t matter if it’s an old copy from NSO/PSA as long as it’s still in good condition and clear writing.

    • Based on experience, Hindi ka papayagan umalis pag below 6 months na LNG Ang validity ng passport. Sa akin nga 6 months & 2 days valid pa Pero aabutan ng under 6 months since 1 week sana ako Sa Vietnam. May possibility rin na paalisin ka Kung tlgang ipipilit mo cguro pero may risk kasi na Di ka papasukin Sa Bansa na pupuntahan mo at malamang ma penalty kpa.

  148. Quick question. My fiance is in the Philippines and her passport expires in June 2017. We are working on her fiance visa and she is wondering if she can renew the passport now. We already gave the officers her current passport information but she wants to renew it so its valid and new before she has to do the interview at the embassy. I saw that she can actually renew it at anytime. Just wanted to ask and make sure she can do it. It expires in 10 months. Thank you.

    • “I saw that she can actually renew it at anytime. Just wanted to ask and make sure she can do it.” – Yes, she can renew it anytime. Advance happy wedding and a blissful marriage to both of you.

    • Yes, definitely she can renew it so tell her to get an appointment online for I think the DFA is now offering Oct/Nov 2016 schedules.

  149. What if the owner of the passport is in another country.. Can another person renew it on hi/her behalf? What are the requirements?

    Reply
    • Other people could jot renew the passport on someone’s behalf cause personal appearance is needed for the picture and signature since you do it in front of the dfa personnel. Your friend can try renewing it in the Philippine embassy in the country he/she’s staying though it would take much longer.

    • I don’t think it is allowed since they need to take a picture of the applicant. And the old passport needs to be presented as well.

    • If you can proceed with the online appointment without the old passport info then just go for it. Pag May sched kna, call their hotline 737-1000 at magtanong tanong k dun para if ever na May dpat kpang gawin magawa mo na before ur appointment sched. Importante makakuha ka ng schedule.

  151. Shocks is it true na 30 days na ang processing? Wala na po bang rush like the 7 days? kasi magagahol po lami.., may travel dates are sept 4. any suggestions po where me and my kids can go po ng walk-in and pwede pa-rush. Nagsearch po ako ng rush passport processing and sawhttp://www.telephonepassportexpress.com , valid po ba ito? Looking forward for your reply ma’am. Medyo na-stress po ako. Thanks

    Reply
    • There is a rush processing with 7 business days on some offices like dfa aseana (regional offices takes longer I think since their rush is 15 days, can’t remember where I got that info) but I am not sure if they would allow walk in since the online appointment takes weeks. Try calling in dfa office regarding the matter.

  152. Hi. Ask ko lang pano kung magpa renew ako paasport ko pero ipachange ko ung surname ko without any legal documents? Gamit ko kasi my entire life ay ung sa father ko pero sa birth certificate ko ay late registered ako, so lumalabas na ang surname ko ay ung sa mother ko at wala ako middle name. Sa mga prev passport ko, gamit ko ang surname ng mother ko. Gusto ko sanang baguhin kasiang gamit ko sa lahat ng school and work records ko ay ung surname ng father ko pati sa middle name ng anak ko na iaapply ko din ng passport soon.. gets po ba? Ano po bang nasusunod sa name ng passport, based on birth certificate or school/work/govt records??? I need an answer. Please po help me. Thank you.

    Reply
    • Your birth certificate is more legitimate than your school and work records (those are just supporting documents in the dfa personnel’s eyes. Your birth certificate is a government record (what other document are you pertaining). What did your parents show in your school that they admitted you using your father’s surname when your BC was stating another name. Try asking the dfa office regarding the matter. I think the worse case you’ll have is they would ask you to officially apply a change of name with the government so that you can take your father’s surname.

    • Cristina, the best thing that you can do is to visit your nearest DFA branch personally, in there, they will guide you properly about your case.

    • what I did before is a bit desperada thing lol anyways what I did is I look at the other dfa offices around the Philippines and call each of them to ask how long they can process my renewal of passport, and then I find one in Dfa Cebu so I book the passport scheduling there and fly to Cebu the next day because I found a slot na nag agree sa schedule of flights ko

  154. Hi, may I ask what is the meaning of the message below “** IMPORTANT **” regarding the violated provisions of RA 8239, etc… We are quite worried if this will affect my passport renewal. Or is the message below the ” **IMPORTANT** ” is just a system generated message. Pls. enlighten me since my appointment for renewal is on Wednesday, Aug 10. Another question is can I just pick up my renewed passport instead of via courier to avoid delay? Pls. see below captured message from my email verification of my appointment. Thank you.

    “If you do not confirm within 72 hours, your provisional appointment will be automatically cancelled to give way to other applications.

    For applicants who can’t make it on their appointment schedule date, kindly use the “Cancel Appointment” feature inside “View Appointment” at least 3 work days before your appointment to avoid problems in your future applications.

    ** IMPORTANT **
    It appears your personal information matches one or several other records of individuals who have similar passport information/personal details who may have violated provisions of RA 8239: The Philippine Passport Act of 1996. Passport processors/evaluators at your chosen application site may request you to produce additional documents and corresponding proof of identity upon interview, in order to ascertain that you are a different individual and consequently approve your passport application.”

    Thank you very much.

    Sincerely,

  155. hi, my passport just expired last June and i’m planning to apply for a renewal at SM Megamall. Is it possible to just walk in there instead of setting an appointment? I called their hotline and the person who answered said that all renewal and applications are to be done now by appointment. Just wanna verify if this is true. thanks!

    • Mark,

      All applicants must get appointment online unless you belong to those who are allowed to go thru courtesy lane. people like OFWs, Pregnant Women, children below 7 yrs old, Senior Citizens, PWDs etc can do without the online appointment. Try search online complete list of individuals who can use the courtesy lane and check if your situation will fall in any one. If none, then an online application is the way for you. Or go to Regional DFA Offices like in Batangas, Lucena etc.

  158. Good day!
    My passport recently expired and I was able to schedule an appointment two months after the expiration date (it was the earliest available time). My question is, will I be paying a penalty and are there any additional requirements for renewing expired passports? Thank you so much in advance.

  159. Hi,

    Good day. I am an OFW working in Singapore. My daughter’s passort is about to expire. She is staying in the Philippines. I will be there this August to accompany her for passport renewal since she is only 10yrs old. However, the earliest available date for passport renewal on the website is September.

    Since i cannot reschedule my leave due to work, can we just do a walk-in process?

    Hope to hear from you soon. Thank you.

  160. Good morning po. Tanong ko Lang Kung kailangan ko p kumuha ng mga bagong requirements sa national statistics office like birth certificate and marriage contract? May mga nakuhang na po kasi akong requirement last year pa. Kailangan po ba updated ( birth certificate and marriage contract)? Need your reply asap, thanx po and God bless.

    • Joanna,

      I guess new applicant ka kc no need ng BC Sa renewal. Anyway, Hindi naman nai specify na kailangan na may validity ung BC at MC so I guess ok Lang na Kahit last year mo pa na secure Ang mga Ito basta naka SECPA or authenticated. Copy. Para maka siguro ka better call their hotline 737-1000.

      • Hello po,

        Bakit po sa Requirements – Passport renewal, may nakalgay na ganito

        Machine Readable Passport (MRP) issued in the year 2007:

        Bring original passport and photocopy of data page and last page of passport
        Birth Certificate (BC) in Security Paper (SECPA) issued by the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) or Certified True Copy (CTC) of BC issued by the Local Civil Registrar (LCR) to determine complete place of birth. Transcribed Birth Certificate from the LCR is required when entries in PSA Birth Certificate are blurred or unreadable

        Na-issue ung Passport ko nung 2012, pero alam ko Machine Readable pa cya. Pwede na po kaya ung NSO birth certificate lang?. Khit hndi na ung PSA with SECPA?

        Reply
        • Have your copy authenticated Kung ayaw mo ng naka SECPA Pero same effort LNG din naman yan so if I were you kumuha kna LNG ng naka SECPA.

  161. Good day po….naka pag pa appointment na po ako yesterday (Aug.01,2016), sa DFA Pampanga for passport renewal. Although im from Caloocan, sa Pamapanga ako nakakita nang mas nearest possible day na makapag parenew because im waiting for my employer call this August, and need to renew my passport although May 2017 pa ang due nya.
    My question is this po, nung nag fill up ako ng form thru online, Valenzuela po ang birth place na nilagay ko, pero nang makita ko un form to be print na need ko dalhin sa day ng renewal, Caloocan po ang nakalagay. Ok lang po ba yun? Will they question it kapag kinorek ko ang birth place ko sa day nang renewal ko? is this form that i filled up eh final form na? or ok lang po ba na may corrections ako?
    Thank you po and hoping for your reply.
