I sent an email to this website and a certain Mr. Bryan Zarzuela replied to me promtply and amazingly he answered all my questions. Don’t you feel good when you inquired to a blog or website and you received a prompt reply?
The reason why I sent an email to this website is that my Philippine passport (anyway, I only have Philippine Passport hahaha) is running out of pages. I think I only have two pages left though the expiration is on 2009.
Okay let me summarize the information that I got from Mr. Zarzuela so the OFW’s out there can benefit on this.
I found out that:
– You can apply and renew your passport online but your personal appearance is still required.
– a thumbprint is required for the new type of passport called MRP or Machine Readable Passport.
– The passport can be delivered to your doorstep in a day or two.
– The processing of the passport takes at least 12 days.
For more information you can visit their website @ www.passport.com.ph or call their DFA Passport Direct (02) 737-1000.
