Three months prior to my personal appearance at the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) in Manila to renew my passport, I was checking online to see if I can book a schedule. Unfortunately, all schedules were taken from February to end of April 2013. So, the only option I had was to contact a Travel Agency in the Philippines and have them schedule my passport renewal. I don’t know how they did it but I was told my schedule is confirmed. I think they have a connection inside the DFA, if not how would they if the online booking was fully booked?
According to the Department of Foreign Affairs, the green colored Philippines Passport will no longer be accepted even the expiration date is still valid.
