  • how can this be? the official website of DFA and various embassies say the green passport, like mine, will still be valid even with the rollout of the MRP. i’d love to upgrade but not soon. i have an upcoming trip out of asia in a few months

  • Tutubi if I were you visit the DFA and ask about the issue. Mine is a green one too and it’s expiring next year so I sent my brother to the DFA to inquire about the renewal and that’s what they told him.

    So this month when I go back to Philippines, I will renew mine.

    To avoid this problem, you’d rather replace your green one with the latest MRP.

  • I renewed mine last month and it only took 7 days but I paid P750.00, a P250.00 higher than the regular payment that will take 2 weeks to finish.

    I had mine delivered and I paid P99.00. 🙂

  • magrerenew ako ng passport dahil magxpired na baka magtaka ang dfa kc apelyido ng nanay ko naka appear sa tunay k birthcertificate kc d sila kasal kumuha ako ng bago bcertificate na authenticated. marerenew k ba yun wala kya questionin sakin. tnx my affidavit ko

  • Hi Socorro, I am not confident enough to give you any advice regarding your query since I haven’t encoutered that yet.

    What i suggest to you is to go to Department of Foreign Affairs in Philippines or at the nearest Philippines Embassy where you are residing at the moment (if you are outside Phil).

    If you ever got an answer from the DFA or the Philippines Embassy, I hope that you can post it here.

    Thanks.

  • green passport are still valid, yon pa rin kasi ang gamit ko and just came from vacation last Jan.

    socorro try to see DFA, siguro naman pwede yan kong completo ka lang sa mga supporting docs.

  • @mrloo, I’m travelling to the Philippines for emergency purposes and my passport has been expired since ’07. I was advised by one of the Philippine consulate staff from Washington, DC to apply for travel document but it is only single entry so that means when I come back to the US, my passport should have been renewed already. My question is, do I have to make an appointment for that(over DFA in Manila?) ‘coz that what I’m planning to do as soon as I set foot on Philippine soil. Thank you and hope to get a reply from you.

  • is it okay if i just bring sss E-1 form @ not
    my sss ID( ’cause its still processing ) for
    my other document? tnx

  • @marloo…query lng..naiwala ng PRO ung passport q.im here in dubai n i have to go back philippines dahil magchange visa ako, my previous visa was already expired and over stayed n ako since september 13. pwede ba akong umuwi ng pinas using travel documents lang?and sa pinas na ako mag process ng bagong passport.

    further, ano po ba mga requirements if ever, may police report na po ako.

    salamat ng marami

  • @odessa fairbanks: meron naman tayong philippine embassy dito sa dubai. im sure matutulongan ka nila sa problem mo regarding your lost passport.. basta punta ka sa philippine embassy natin and they will help you there whatever problem mo ingats always.. 🙂

  • hi have a nice day po sainio maam and sirn.naglakas loob lng po ako sainio na mag masgs. pde nio po ba ako matulungan kasi po aasikasuhin ko po sana ung recquirements nung pamangkin ko sa pagkuha nung passport nia kaya lng po wala po ung mother nia dito nasa ibang bansa and wala din po syang ama.ano po ung dapat ko gawin.my passport na din po ako..sobrang ngpapasalamat na po ako sainio..god bless u…

  • Bakit po na paka pangit ng sebisyo ng philippine consulate sa dubai,Huwag nyo naman dalhin yung asal natin sa pinas.Walang nasagot sa phone pagtinanong mo galit pa. Dapat palitan ng bago ang mga empliyado. salamat po sa inyo at makunsensya naman kayo palibhasa hindi nyo nararamdam yung nararamdaman namin kc nasa goverment kayo.

  • Its good to know this, thanks for posting. But is it advisable to get a Philippine Passport when you know that you will not be using it anytime sooner? Some Filipinos actiually do get passports even if they have no imediate plans of using it. They just want to be prepared when the time comes that they will be needing it

  • Hello! good morning!.Nasa Pilipinas po anak ko 17 yrs old.Doon sya nag-aral since last yr 2009.D2 naman po ako sa Thailand nagwowork. Mag expire ang passport nya sa May 25, 2011.So, pina renew ko po sya ng passport sa Ilo2 DFA kasi malapit lang sa amin.Dahil uuwi po ako ng Pilipinas April 8-16 “Songkran Festival”At d2 muna sya mag bakasyon sa Bangkok.Bakit, ang daming hingi sa anak ko? like; affidavit of support & consent, income tax return, sedula, clearance from DSWD, annual income. Samantalang, sa Ilo2 DFA naman po sya kumuha sa una nyang passport? At mag rerenew ay sangka tutak naman na requirements ang hinihingi?? Opo, magpadala ako ng affidavit of support & consent na iyan, na ang Tatay ko kasama bilang guardian sa pag pa renew ng passport.
    Opo, may birth certificate na po yang anak ko, na authenticated W/ red ribbon. Ganoon din ang death crtifcate, kasi namatay na po ang husband ko.
    Tanong ko po, iba2 ba ang patakaran ng bawat DFA sa Pilipinas?
    Thank you po..
