My passport will expire this February. Good news for me! The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) recently launched their Passport Appointment System by Internet last January 14. Now I can renew my passport without too much hassles.
Here are some important information about this system as posted on their press release.
Who Can Avail of the DFA Passport Appointment System Initially the DFA Passport Appointment System will be open to the following passport applicants:
a. Those whose passports have already expired;
b. Those whose passport will be expiring within the next one year;
c. Senior citizens (More than 60 years old)
The DFA Passport Appointment System will be expanded to cover all passport applicants in due time
1. Qualified passport applicants may avail of the DFA Passport Appointment System by sending their request via internet, email address: [email protected] ph
2. Passport applicants applying for appointment must provide the following information:
a. Full name of applicant (first name, middle name and surname);
b. Date of birth;
c. Place of birth;
d. Latest Passport Number and Date of Issuance
3 Application for Appointment must be made one, week before the proposed date of appointment.
4. Applicant must wait for the confirmation of the proposed appointment and take note of the reference number that will be provided by DFA-Passport Office before proceeding to the DFA for the filing of the passport application.
5. Applicant must be at the DFA Passport Office (Special Area for those with appointments) at the confirmed designated date and time for the filing of the passport application.
This is a good move by the DFA. No more queuing. At least, I could see that my taxes are going somewhere beneficial.
I’ll try this system and will post my experience. Should I wear this shirt when going there? LOL!
