Starting March 8, 2010, the Department of Foreign Affairs will accept and process passport applications at the new Office of Consular Affairs building at Bradco cor. Macapagal Avenues, Aseana Business Park near the Mall of Asia.

In an advisory sent through the media, the DFA also said that authentication services will likewise be transferred to the new building starting on March 4, 2010.

Located a few blocks from the old DFA building, the new 7,000-square meter, four-storey building hopes to better serve citizens applying for passports and requesting for the authentication of Philippine documents.

To apply for a Philippine passport, applicant must fill out a Passport application form and submit the requirements. There are different requirements for first-time applicants and for those who are applying for renewal of expired or expiring passports.

The DFA is also accepting online requests for appointment for passport applicants.

Here are the official passport fees:

  • P500.00 for the 44-page Machine-Readable Passport (MRP)
  • P950.00 for the 44-page Electronic Passport Passport (ePass)
  • P250.00 for expedited processing of either the MRP or the ePass
  • P700.00 for replacement of lost valid passport (MRP)

  3. Greetings tonyo,

    I am neither a Filipino nor do I live there.

    However, I have met and betroth to this truly wonderful Filipina. She is a single mother with a 3 year old son.

    May I know how she will apply for a Passport for both herself and for her son.

    Is her 3 year old son added to her Passport or does he qualify at his age to have a separate Passport of his own under Philippine Immigration Law?

    Thank you,

  4. tanong ko lang po how can i get a passport in a rush way. kasi po kailangan ko this month for travel po.

  5. ask ko alng kung available pa yun walk in application

  6. This is a reply for JO:
    I am not working from any government offices but i know about securing a passport. The Filipina that you’ve met must apply a passport for her and for her son respectively at the Department of Foreign Affairs. These are the basic requirements for applying a passport:
    - an NSO (National Statistics Office) aunthenticated birth certificate and
    - NBI (National Bureau Of Investigation) Clearance
    She must secure the requirement for both of them. I hope i have answered your inquiry. Good day!

  7. Tanong ko lang po kung paano kumuha ng philippine passport ng mabilis? Dying na po kasi yung tito ko sa Quatar. Thanks.

  8. inquire lng po regarding requirements in applying passport.
    this is the case:
    - age of applicant 12 and 10 y/o
    - mother is no where to be found, only the father and grand parents are the guardians of the kids. parents were married but it was void ( marriage contract is not filed/registered in the municipal)
    is it possible that only the father will accompany tem in applying the passport?? what requirements should they bring in order to process the application?
    hoping for you immediate response to this matter…

    thank you and bet regards,
    mei
