    Good evening just want to ask if any dfa office accept walk in customer …thank you in advance.

    • admin says:

      On the same day that I appeared for my DFA appointment, I saw a separate line for those who did not have an online appointment. But that was back in January 2015. I don’t recommend walking into the DFA without a prior appointment.

      • admin says:

        Ang pagkakaalam ko kahit saang DFA branch ay pwedeng mag-avail ng Courtesy Lane, pero para mas sigurado, pumunta ka sa DFA Aseana o kaya sa DFA Robinson’s Galleria. Dalhin mo ang lahat ng dokumento para maka-avail ka ng Courtesy Lane bilang OFW.

    • John rey says:

      Good morning admin kailangan ko ipa renew passport ko gusto ko po sana pumila s courtesy lane my mother is a government teacher but im already married but my old passport is single can i use the courtesy lane salamat pi

      • admin says:

        Since you are already married, I don’t think you qualify for Courtesy Lane availment as a government employee’s dependent.

        • kams says:

          Excuse me po pwede pa po ba mag walkin sa kht anong dfa branches? new passport po

        • Rain Co says:

          Hi. Ask ko lang po, Paano mo gagawin ko kasi hindi ako naka attend sa schedule na binigay ng DFA staff. kasi need ko daw isa pang i.d at Vrr, Pano po yun?

  2. J says:

    Good day Ma’am i would just like to ask if the 7 days processing period is really true. In your case, when did you receive your passport?

    • admin says:

      The average processing time is 7 working days for express renewal. I received my passport via LBC after 10 days total.

      • Leah says:

        how about for new applicants, pwede b magwalk- in

        • admin says:

          You need to set an appointment online.

          • Neil Marianeto says:

            Pwede po ba mag walk in for renewing my passport?.. My passport is going to be expired soon on Feb.1,2018… Am I allowed to go to Hongkong for 19 days vacation this first week of January?

  3. Jean says:

    How many IDs and supporting documents hiningi nila? Planning to renew mine this month kasi eh. Thanks!

  4. Ree says:

    Hi, halos lahat naka shirt lang. Collared shirts not required?

    • admin says:

      They are going to take a tight shot/close-up of your face for the passport photo. However, I would still recommend that you wear a shirt with collar.

  5. MASH says:


    • admin says:

      You could give it a shot. However, there is no guarantee that they would entertain you. I should mention that when I applied for my passport renewal a year ago there was a separate line for walk-in applicants. Things might’ve changed since then. Try mo rin baka pwede pa, but don’t cancel your online appointment yet. Good luck.

    • Pao says:

      Natry mo na magwalk-in? do they still accept?

      • admin says:

        I’ve never tried walk-in since the online appointment started. I have no idea whether they still entertain walk-ins.

  6. Kaye says:

    Hi! OFW po ako. I did the online appointment system before to get my current passport, pero ngayon hindi gumagawa yung system nila. Lahat ng dates and branches na click ko na pero hindi sya nag coconfirm saka wala daw apointment schedule nun. Okay lang po kaya sa OFWs na mag walk in kahit walang appointment? Thank you po!

    • admin says:

      The site may be experiencing server problems. If you’re an OFW and currently in the Philippines, you may avail of the courtesy lane at the DFA Aseana office without setting an online appointment. You have to present proof of a confirmed job offer or existing employment contract.

  7. Anne says:

    Hi i would like to ask if nahirapan kayo magschedule ng appointment sa online, halos lahat ng malls is no available dates ang lumalabas. Naka ilang ulit na ako pero yung mga dates is not available.

    • admin says:

      Hello Anne,

      The exact thing happened to me, too. Kadalasan kasi may problema server/database na ginagamit ng DFA website. Try and try (every hour if you can) until you see the dates magically become available (you might even see an opening within the current week–pag may nag-cancel ng appointment nila). As far as I know, you cannot set an appointment beyond three months from the current date. Good luck.

  8. vivster says:

    hi, ask ko lang if you happen to know what time DFA SM Manila opens? Can we go there as early as 8am just to try our luck for walk ins?

    • admin says:

      DFA NCR – West (SM Manila) is open from 10:00 AM – 7:00 PM (Mondays – Saturdays). According to the website: “Confirmed appointment is a requirement for applying and renewal of passport. The DFA will not entertain applicants without valid appointments EXCEPT senior citizens, infants and minors below 1 year old, person with disability and OFWs. For OFWs, sufficient proof must be submitted such as a valid employment contract or OEC.”

  9. Mervs says:

    Hi Admin,

    I am an OFW and currently there is no available schedule for March in appointment system. I only have 2 weeks vacation in Manila and planning to renew my passport there.

    Is there a rush lane for OFW without appointments?

    How many days is the quickest possible processing for renewal?

    Thank you and more power

    • admin says:

      OFWs may use the courtesy lane privilege at DFA to renew their passports without prior online appointment. They must bring sufficient proof of confirmed job offers or existing contracts. Express processing takes 7 business days.

  10. Sexy G says:

    Hi Admin. Do you know how long is the confirmed online appointment valid?

    • admin says:

      Hi Sexy G. It is valid only on the date and time indicated on your application form. If you’re worried that you wont make it on your chosen date, you’ll have to reschedule online.

  11. madonna V. Zarate says:

    Hi Admin…i am a gov’t employee and need to renew my passport asap. I’ve red about “Courtesy Lane”…Can i just go at DFA without any online appointment and renew my passport? thanks and more power…

  12. Kim says:

    Hi admin,
    Im a seaman and I need to renew my passport soonest, but I dont have my contract yet, I just have my seamans book and some of the minor requirements such as nso,drivers license etc. Is possible for me to apply as walk-in? Thanks

    • admin says:

      To be honest, Kim, I don’t know. However, you may call the DFA Appointment Hotline (02) 737-1000 to find out. Good luck!

  13. D P Malunes says:

    good evening.. Just want to ask if they also give application forms to those who have not done the online appoinment?

  14. Edison says:

    Hi, I’m new in applying for a passport. I already got my appointment schedule on April 08, but I urgently needed to get a passport before Mar 20. Do you think DFA will accept me if i will go as a walk in applicant? so i can get an earlier schedule?

  15. ariel bihasa says:

    hello, it’s still having a walk in process? if yes, where is it?

  16. jeck says:

    pede mag walkin sa sm megamall para mag apply ng new passport? o need ba talaga mag set ng apointment?

  17. MARIVIC says:


  18. Mack says:

    Hi, Good day! Do the Courtesy Lane applies to the first timer OFW? (Will be working abroad for the first time and currently securing all the requirements for the job).

    I tried setting for the appointment but the latest one I saw is on June which is to late or not viable to my estimated flying date.

    Thanks in advance!

  19. Jowee says:

    Hi i need my passport renewed before the first week of april.. do they accept walk ina in dfa pampanga and if do they require birthcerts for renewal?

    • admin says:

      Hi, Jowee. I really don’t know whether walk-in applicants are accepted at DFA Pampanga. As for your other question, the DFA in SM City Manila did ask for a copy of my birth certificate, among other documents, when I renewed my passport there.

      • Miel says:

        Hi Admin, ask ko lang po if pwede ng makapag renew ang walk-in sa DFA SM Manila or kahit saang DFA office dito sa NCR without online appointment? Hindi po ako OFW. If may idea ka lang po? Nag apply po ako today ng visa and ang sabi po sakin e kailangan ko daw muna pong i-renew pasport ko kasi mag e-expire na daw po sa May 27th, 2017. Form na lang po ang wala sa requirements ko. Sana po matulungan nyo ako. Or any suggestion na lang po. Thank you! πŸ™‚

  20. potchi says:

    Hi may alam ka po ba na DFA branch na hindi na keilangan ng appointment? Thank you

  21. Angelo says:

    Hi poh ask ko lang poh kung pwdi mag walk in sa sm manila to renewal my passport …… Ohh need poh ng appointment sa online….

  22. paul says:

    hi po,ask ko lng kasi ung kapatid ko ofw and meron lng syan 2-3weeks ng vacation. gusto nya kunan ng passport anak nya(11 yrs old). pwede b sila s courtesy lane? thanks po ng marami..

    • admin says:

      Hi, Paul. Ang pagkakaalam ko ay hindi pwede ang Courtesy Lane sa mga anak o asawa ng OFW, except if they are OFWs themselves.

  23. LYN BASIO GULLAN says:


    • admin says:

      Hello, Lyn. Pwede kang mag-avail ng Courtesy Lane sa DFA Aseana office na hindi na kailangan ang online appointment kung ikaw ay OFW. Kailangang dalhin mo ang employment contract mo. Dapat valid at current ang employment contract.

  24. Wilz says:

    hello Admin,

    sa mga province DFA, pwede po kaya walk-in doon? nagaassume ako na pwede kasi di naman sila kasama sa online appointment. kailangan ko kasi ng passport ASAP.

    Thank you very much.

  25. Anjo says:

    Hello Admin,
    Via online appointment lang po ba tlga yung pwede sa satellite offices? I tried to set an appointment online but June pa yung available slots. I need the passport for work abroad kaya I need it as soon as possible. Thank you!

    • admin says:

      Hi, Anjo. OFWs with a valid employment contract may avail of the Courtesy Lane (walk-in) at DFA Aseana. Without a valid employment contract, you have no other recourse but to set an appointment online.

  26. Maricar says:

    Hi admin, what DFA branch po ang ngaaccept ng walk in ? Kasi po need ko tlga passport asap

    • admin says:

      Hi, Maricar. As far as I know, walk-ins are not entertained at NCR offices of the DFA, unless you qualify for the Courtesy Lane service.

  27. Qwerty says:

    Hi po.. Nov 2016 pa po expiration ng Passport ko. First time OFW sana. Sabi ng agency to go po sa DFA Aseana and ask for extension.. Pwede po ba yun? Andito na po sa akin ang Contract at Visa. Need kasi makaalis sa May.. Ano pa po dapat ko dalhin. Paki isa-isa po.

    What else pa po?

    • admin says:

      Hello, Qwerty. Better renew your passport at DFA Aseana. Mag-avail ka ng Courtesy Lane for OFWs para pwedeng walk-in (hindi na kailangan mag-set ng appointment online). Dalhin mo ang OFW contract at iba bang importanteng dokumento, IDs, etc. Good luck!

  28. admin says:

    Hi Edgar. I really have no idea. Better give DFA at +63 (02)737-1000. Good luck!

  29. UghhhPassport says:

    Hi! I’ve read the DFA’s website about emergency situation, etc. I, however, is still hoping my case shall be considered an emergency. I got accepted to a foreign university abroad for an exchange program and the minimum requirement for the passport validity is 1 month. My passport expires by April 2017; hence, my inability to secure a long stay student visa. Do you know whether this is meritorious enough to have my passport renewed asap? I also do not mind going to DFA Aseana, West, South, East, I just need to have my passport renewed asap.

    • admin says:

      Hi Misty. I suggest that you proceed to DFA Aseana right away, as it is the DFA’s main office and is better equipped and staffed to handle unique passport-related cases. Good luck!

  30. Fran says:

    Hello admin, i just received my daughter’s passport today. I was so thrilled when it finally arrived because we’ve already scheduled a flight for hongkong on May 6. So imagine the horror when i found out na mali ang date of birth nya. It’s feb 24, 2014 instead of april 24, 2014. I don’t know how it happened because i’m pretty sure i even checked each field while the encoder was filling it when we were at the encoding. So my question is can we just go to dfa aseana tomorrow as ‘walk-in applicant’? I’m also not sure about the qualifications for walk-ins and courtesy lane, there are too many sites that i checked and i don’t know which one is the most updated. There is one that says infant 1yr old and below, then there’s another that says infants below 1 year old, and there’s a difference right? Well, my daughter’s technically still a one year old, so yeah.. Sorry, i just really wanna know kung pano ang gagawin ko. Help!

    • admin says:

      Hi, Fran! I’m sorry to learn about the error in your daughter’s passport. I can imagine how unsettling it must be, considering your flight is very close. I agree that it’s best to proceed to the DFA Aseana office as soon as possible. I’ve a feeling that they have a desk that deals with cases such as yours, or at least they should. I assume your daughter is one year old (I wouldn’t worry about the below 1 year old/1 year old and below distinction); that might help with expediting your case. Good luck!

  31. Maj says:

    Hi! Earlier tumawag po ako sa DFA hotline regarding to my problem about the schedules ng available appointment. June and July nalang po ang meron. I need to renew my passport kasi kailangan ko umalis sa May due to my overstay dito sa Pinas. Nung nalaman nung DFA personnelna kausap ko na immigrant/permanent resident ako, sinabi niya na okay lang kahit wala nakong appointment basta ipakita ko lang daw yung green card ko. Im kind of worried kasi baka di ako ientertain and wala akong renewal application. Please help

    • admin says:

      Hello, Maj. Since you’ve spoken to DFA personnel, I don’t think you need to worry. Better proceed to the DFA office as soon as you can and explain your situation (as well as tell them about your conversation with the DFA person). Good luck!

      • Maj says:

        Thank you admin! May i ask two more question? Where can I download an renewal application and what DFA office are you referring to?

        • admin says:

          Hi, Maj. Passport application forms can be downloaded here. The form says March 2015, but it’s the latest they have on the site. Also, forms for new applications and renewals are the same. The DFA Aseana office’s address is Aseana Business Park, Bradco Avenue corner Macapagal Boulevard, Barangay Tambo, ParaΓ±aque, 1714 Metro Manila, Philippines. Here’s the location map from their website. It’s quite close to SM Mall of Asia.

    • admin says:

      Hi, Maj. I would trust the DFA personnel. Do as the DFA personnel has suggested: proceed to the DFA office, show your green card and explain your circumstances. It is always better to plead your case in person, especially since online appointment is not a viable option for you right now. Good luck!

      • Maj says:

        Hi admin. I just got home from DFA Aseana and nothing went well. They told me that I still need an appointment because I did not enter the United States for a year. Nawawalan nako ng pagasa because my flight is getting near. Is there any possible way that you could recommend? I’m thinking about the DFA Referral, but I dont know anyone that is employed in DFA. The DFA personnel, said something about magpa endorsement daw ako but I have no idea what is that and how. Im such in desperate help.

        • admin says:

          I’m sorry to hear about the outcome of your visit to DFA Aseana, Maj. I’m afraid I can’t help you with the DFA Referral. Have you tried consulting an immigration lawyer? How about getting the help of a local travel agency for your passport renewal? If all else fails, you could try getting your PH passport the normal way and then apply for a Returning Resident Visa from the US Embassy in Manila. But I’d recommend the lawyer or travel agency first.

        • admin says:

          There is another option that you can try: apply for renewal through one of the DFA regional offices. Here is a list of DFA regional offices and their contact information. You can read up on these two bloggers who have applied for passport renewal in Pampanga and Batangas. Please note that DFA in Robinson’s Pampanga requires two trips: first, to set up an appointment. Next, to show up on the date of your appointment. The blog entry about passport application in DFA Batangas was written in 2012, so the procedure might have changed since then (or not). Good luck.

  32. abeth says:

    Hi Admin,

    My kids need to renew their passport this june even if the expiration is on feb2017, because they need it for the renewal of their visa in HK. but no more slot is available for june. are they accepting walk in sa mall or sa main lang sila pede mag walk in.

    Thanks in advance.

    • admin says:

      Hi, Abeth. The Courtesy Lane accepts walk-in applications for children aged 1 year and below. DFA Aseana accepts walk-ins on a case-to-case basis, and the only sure way to find out if they’ll accept yours or your children’s is to proceed directly to the Office of the Passport Director and explain your circumstances. Good luck!

  33. Patricia says:

    hi admin, ask ko lang po if maeentertain po kaya ako sa DFA ali mall kapag nag walk in ako? actually po may appointment po ako pero ang nakalagay pa po dun na date July 5. kelangan ko na po kasi sana ang passport bago mag June. Kung pwede ipakita ko nalang yung appointment paper ko..

    • admin says:

      Hi, Patricia. I doubt it, unless you qualify for the Courtesy Lane, in which case you have to proceed to DFA Aseana. You really must set an online appointment.

    • Lito says:

      Yung mga OFW walk in passport renewal sa DFA Robinson sa harap ng POEA.

      • admin says:

        Hi, Lito. Is this recent? Apparently, they still accept walk-in passport renewals in some DFA satellite offices, but they don’t make it a policy to announce it. I think the aim is to encourage everyone to set an online appointment. Thank you for sharing this information, Lito. I hope this helps our kababayans who urgently need to renew their passport.

  34. mila camposano says:

    grabeeeeeeeeeee”” ano ba yan dfa sobra walang sumasagot sa call hotline pa naman naturingan, papalow up lang namin passport ng anak ng boss ko charlton kristhoper supera nag apply noong april 12 dapat 21 meron na up to now wala pa rin, ang dami k ng tinawagan wala sila masagot kung bakit hangan ngayon wala pa rin.

    • admin says:

      Hi, Mila. I’m sorry to learn about your frustrations. There does seem to be a delay in printing the passports. I wouldn’t count on the people answering the DFA hotline to know the actual status of passport applications. Did the applicant avail of courier delivery? Best thing is to wait a few more days. If the passport is for pick-up (instead of courier delivery), the applicant (or an authorized representative) must personally come to the DFA office.

  35. seph says:

    hi po,
    ask ko po san pede mag walk in passport renewal ang seaman
    may napagtanongan po ako sa dfa ortigas totoo po ba?
    at early as 2am may pila na po ba.. kc may qouta daw po..

    • admin says:

      Hi, Seph. I suppose seamen may be classified as OFWs, therefore they can qualify for Courtesy Lane availment. Hindi ko lang alam kung mayroong Courtesy Lane sa DFA Ortigas. Ang advice ko sa iyo ay magsadya ka sa DFA Aseana (malapit sa MOA) dahil ito ang main office ng DFA. Subalit pwede mo namang subukan ang DFA Ortigas kung malapit lang ito sa iyo at may oras ka. Masyadong maaga naman ang 2AM. Maaring magpunta ka ng 6AM siguro, dahil sa mall ito at mga 10:00AM pa sila magbubukas. Good luck!

      • Neil Marianeto says:

        Pwede po ba mag walk in for renewing my passport?.. My passport is going to be expired soon on Feb.1,2018… Am I allowed to go to Hongkong for 10 days vacation this first week of January?

  36. Paul jordan anuevo says:

    Admin, sa september na mag eexpire ang pasport ko. So need ko mg renew ksi anytime pwede ako pa balikin ng company sa barko pero for now wala pa naman ako contrct pero dati na ako sumasakay. Kng sakali ba mag walk in ako sa dfa aseana ma qualify kaya ko sa priority lane.

    • admin says:

      Hi, Paul. Kung wala ka pang contract, baka hindi ka makapag-avail ng Courtesy Lane. Mas mabuting mag-set ka ng online appointment para sigurado. Pero kung may time ka naman, pwede mong subukang pumunta sa DFA Aseana para i-try mo kung ma-e-entertain ka nila. Case-to-case basis ang pagtanggap ng walk-in applicants/Courtesy Lane availment at ang DFA lang ang makapagsasabi kung papayagan ka. Good luck.

  37. Paul jordan anuevo says:

    Kahit wla ako online apointment

  38. Jonnel says:

    Hi Admin, ask ko lang po if kapag ang dahilan mo ay company outing abroad at nakabooked na kayong lahat tpos may problema sa birth certificate mo upon processing ng application for passport at inabot ka ngaung may bago makuha ang annotatedd birth certificate mo, possible po ba na mkapasok ka pdn dun sa courtesy lane?

    • admin says:

      I’m sorry, Jonnel, I cannot really answer that. But I don’t think you qualify for Courtesy Lane availment, baka emergency/urgent cases pwede pa. Case-to-case basis ang DFA kung mag-decide sa urgent situations, so the only way to know is to proceed directly to the DFA Aseana office. Good luck.

  39. emalyn says:

    Hi ma’am.. Requirements na meron ako NSO. NBI. Barangay clearance. Philhealth I’d. New postal I’d. Sss e1 validated ..dpa po kc narelease sss umid KO.. Pwede napo kaya ako maqpa appoint sa dfa or sm Manila sa mga requirements na meron ako?

    • admin says:

      Hello, Emalyn. Pwede na po ang mga requirements nyo. Dalhin po ang originals at mga photocopies nito.

  40. Kooline says:

    Hi tanong ko lang ilang araw yung pinakabest magpareseve ng appointment? I’m planning na tumawag July and ischedule ko yung appointment ko ng last week ng September para 18 na ko that time. Any suggestion? Thank you

    • admin says:

      Depends on which DFA office you are going, Kooline. If it’s DFA Aseana, best time to go is early morning, as the queue tends to get longer as the day wears on and you will find your schedule being moved by about 30-40 minutes later (it happened to me when I applied for my son’s passport last year). If it’s DFA in SMA City Manila, as per my and my brother’s experiences, the queue starts to shorten after lunch time. But whatever DFA office you choose, rest assured that the line moves satisfyingly fast.

  41. Maica says:

    Valid n ba ung digitized postal id pra mkakuha ng passport..un lng kxe available id ko..

    • admin says:

      Hi, Maica. A digitized postal ID is a valid ID. If you have an old school ID or employment ID you may bring them as well. Additionally, bring supporting documents like an NBI Clearance, Barangay Clearance, or Voter’s Certification, to name a few.

  42. joven ong says:

    hi ask ko lng po if walk in po ba pede ? saang branch po ng dfa ang may walk in? kasi ang tatagal pa ng date pag sa online nag pa appointment. need ko kasi ng rush para sa return ko abroad.. salamat po ng marami

    • admin says:

      If you are an OFW and have an existing overseas job contract, you may avail of the Courtesy Lane. Bring proof of confirmed job offer or existing valid contract, along with other documentary requirements. Sa DFA Robinson’s Galleria sa may tapat ng POEA Building, mayroong walk-in for OFW, according to some sources.

  43. Ania says:

    Hi po. Nakalagay po kasi sa dfa site, saturday schedules are considered express processing. Ibig sabihin po ba nun, after 7 working days din makukuha yung passport or pinareho lang nila yung rate ng saturday sa express processing dahil normally mon-fri lang ang govt offices? Thanks po.

    • admin says:

      Hello, Ania. Sa pagkakaalam ko, pag Saturday ang schedule mo, Express Processing ang babayaran mo at makukuha mo ang passport mo pagkalipas ng 7 working days.

  44. Joy says:

    Hi Admin. Ask ko lang po kung meron pa bang mga Satellite offices na nag’ccater ng mga walk in applicants? The thing is, hindi ko po napansin na sobra na palang expired yung passport ko and I badly need it to be renewed within this month or first week next month. Sana po mapansin mo ko πŸ˜“ Di ko na po alam gagawin ko kasi.

    • admin says:

      I’m sorry, Joy, but I really have no idea. Unless you are an OFW with a valid, existing contract, in which case you can go to the DFA satellite office in Robinson’s Galleria Ortigas, across the POEA Building. Otherwise, it’s all up to you to take a chance.

  45. Jennie Rose Kiefer says:

    Hello Admin. I just want to ask , kc may knuha ako n child s orphanage , im living in germany right now, inauthorized ko ung brother ko to go with that child , pamangkn ko lng dn ung bata pero we dont have contact with his mother long time ago na. Realising papers fromorphanage , meron po ako kso nung pinost po papnta d2 naiwala po ng DHL Germany ung packet thsts why copy lng po ang meron ako from phone. Ung deathcert ng father at birthcert ng bta tag iisang original lng po ang naibgay skn,kinailngan po kc d2 s germany ang original kya copy lng po ang natira skn. Yun po ang nsa brother ko n ksma ng bta tomorrow s pagaapply. Admin, ok lng po b yunn copy lng ang nsa bta?

    • admin says:

      Hi Jennie Rose,
      I’m assuming that you went through the proper channels when you adopted your pamangkin (niece or nephew?) from the orphanage. Meaning there was a court order awarding you custody of the child and relevant paperwork (court order/decree of adoption, amended birth certificate, orphanage papers, etc.). In the absence of a certified true copy (NSO Birth Certificate, incidentally NSO is now called PSA), the DFA might give the applicant a hard time, even if you’ve given your brother authorization. Did you say that original papers from orphanage were lost by DHL Germany? That could make things even more complicated. When people ask me if “OK lang ba ganito lang ang documents, etc. etc.?” and there is no clear-cut answer, I always tell them to give it a shot. Papuntahin mo na lang ang brother mo kung anong merong dokumento meron kayo. Mas mabuti pa nga kung ganun para malaman nyo straight from DFA kung ano pang mga dokumento ang kailangan. Malay nyo, baka pumayag din sila. I wish you best of luck.

  46. Merry says:

    Hi admin. Nakakabilib lang kasi ang sipag mo po magreply kahit paulit ulit na yung tanong.. πŸ™‚

  47. Honey says:

    hi admin.. pag driver’s license po ba kailangan pa ng supporting documents? or pwede na po un since gov id naman po sya.. thanks

    • admin says:

      Driver’s license, along with NSO/PSA Birth Certification, should be enough for a valid ID, especially if you are renewing your passport. Medyo mahigpit sila ng konti sa documentary requirements kapag new passport application. If you have secondary documents, I suggest you bring them with you. Hassle kasi kung meron ka naman tapos hiningi sa iyo pero hindi mo nadala.

  48. ricky says:

    ofw po ako need renew passport expired this october 2016 kc d2 sa embassy ng pa appointment august pa naka schedule. july magvacation pinas may express lane ba sa poea na wala ng appointment or walk-in nalang.

    Hi admin, ofw po ako ex abroad. need to renew my passport this month of june, maeexpired na po kasi siya sa nov 2016. Nag apply po kasi ako ulet pa-abroad, sabi ng agency iparenew ko daw muna passport ko before nila iprocess application ko. Eh paano po yun need magpresent ng proof sa dfa like OEC, contract etc? Eh wala naman po ako mapresent kasi di naman po ipoprocess ng agency ung application ko.

    • admin says:

      Hello, Danica. Dahil wala ka pang contract at ayaw pang i-process ng agency ang application mo, lumalabas na wala ka pang pinanghahawakang trabaho sa abroad. Baka hindi ka eligible sa DFA Courtesy Lane. But I suggest you proceed to the Courtesy Lane and explain your situation. Walk-in ka muna para malaman mo kung papayag sila. Kung ayaw naman, itanong mo kung anong pwede mong hingin sa agency as proof of guaranteed overseas employment. Kung ayaw pa rin, mag-set ka ng appointment online.

  51. Danica says:

    Salamat po. Ask ko lang pede naman po sa dfa galleria? Tumawag po kasi ako sa hotline pede daw po ako pumunta sa galleria or aseana

  52. Danica says:

    Sa DFA aseana lang po ba may courtesy lane?

  53. Danica says:

    Salamat po ng marami. πŸ™‚

    hi admin. kailangan ko na kasi makapag renew ng license tinatanong kasi ng employer ko yung passport id ko para mabigyan niya na ko ng ticket to work in abroad pero wala pa ko contract. kasabay ng ticket yung contract. valid reason kaya yun? and meron bang Saturday ang robinson galleria poea? thank you

    • admin says:

      Hi, May. The only way to find out is to ask the people at DFA. Yes, DFA Robinson’s Galleria is open on Saturdays.

    Maam can i renew my passport without appointment.wala kc po open slot july hanggang sept.need ko po renew kc mwalan ng lineup aq sa ofice q po.tnx sa info

    • admin says:

      Hi, Robert. Unless you are an OFW with a valid overseas employment contract, you cannot apply as a walk-in applicant. Pero kung may time ka at willing ka naman, subukan mong pumunta sa DFA Aseana at makiusap sa kanila. Sila ang mag-de-decide nyan. Meanwhile, you can try looking out for any slots that might open every day (try mo pati yung satellite offices na kaya mong puntahan). Tiyempohan mo kung biglang mag-o-open ng slot pag may nag-cancel ng appointment nila.

  56. Chester says:

    good day..sir/maam ..ask q sna qng pwede p walk in dyn s rob galleria dfa..reply po sana..asap..galing po kc ako s marquee mall dfa ska starmill dfa..d nadw po pede ung walk in..if ever po sna qng pde dyn s rob galleria..rush po kc sna..

  57. jhessy says:

    Hi admin san ba pwede mag walk in para sa new passport kase nag try ako ng online appointment pero walang available november p ung available kaylangan kase mga july may passport na sana ako

  58. rick says:

    hi admin, just want to ask kung pwde mag walkin sa dfa sma manila,poea, or robinson galeria. nabanggit nyo po na kpag ofw ay may sariling lane “courtesy lane” ? kung seaman po ako, pasok ho ba ako? lahat ba ng branches ay my courtesy lane? nagcheck kasi ako ng sched at halos puno, september pa angpinaka available.

    • admin says:

      Hi, Rick. I don’t know for sure if seamen qualify for the Courtesy Lane. It is for OFWs with existing contracts, senior citizens, infants, and other specific classes of applicants. As far as I know, all DFA passport offices have Courtesy Lanes, pero para pinakasigurado, sa DFA Aseana or DFA Robinson’s Galleria ka pumunta.

  59. malou says:

    Hi po. ask ko lang mag 2yrs old baby ko sa aug. balak ko sya applyan ng passport sa july. pede ba sya sa courtesy lane? meron ba courtesy lane sa alimall, dfa galleria or sa megamall? masyado kasing malayo sa aseana eh. thank you

Pede Po kya xa mgcourtesy lane. Kc kailangan Po bago mgkatapusan e mkapunta n xa Sa uae para algaan apo. Nya. E ngaun OK n Po requirements nya

    • admin says:

      Hello, Jonilynn. Hindi ako taga-DFA pero siguro pwede naman siyang mag-Courtesy Lane dahil dalawang beses na yata siyang pinabalik, ganoon ba? Kung kompleto na ang dokumento niya, dumiretso na siya sa DFA Aseana (yung main office) at i-explain sa guard ang sitwasyon para papasukin siya. Good luck.

  61. Jonilynn cruz says:

  62. rocell cuyom says:

    hi admin,, ask ko lang po, valid to travel pa po ba ang passpoert ko.. maexpire na sya sa jan.19.2017, need ko kasi pumunta sa oman dis month.. waiting nlng ako sa family visa ko.. mkakatravel pa po ba ako non? siguro mga 3rd week ng july release ng visa ko.. salamat po sa sagot

    • admin says:

      As long as you travel before July 19, 2016 (note: for some countries you may have to travel back to the Philippines before July 19). Not all countries have a 6-month-passport-validity rule, but it’s better to be safe than sorry. Basta siguraduhin mo na lang na may pruweba na babalik ka sa Pilipinas bago mag July 19, 2016.

  63. cristopher zarain says:

    hi admin, i want to renew my passport. please let me know if their is walk in application basis until now?

  64. john says:

    hello admin..

  65. Jm says:

    Hi admin ask ko lang Kase Sa aseana ako May sched next wk. Kaso Ang problema Ko Mamaya pabalikin din AKO. Kase Wala pa naman mga ID Ko dahil unang una Ung sss Wala pa silang id di pa daw avail, pangalawa naman Ung drivers license Wala padin. Pero Ng bigay sila Ng temporary ID Na receipt tapos nakiusap AKO sana bigyan AKO Ng copy Ng Kita Ung mukha Ko. Meron AKO birth and marriage cert, barangay clearance, SSS e1 form, nbi clearance at postal ID Lang. Sabi naman Sa lto valid daw Ung bngay nila Na temporary pero nung tumawag AKO ayaw nila. Pambhra pahirapan tlga.

    • admin says:

      Hello, JM. Tutal meron ka nang appointment pumunta ka na lang. Malay mo pumayag sila. Mahirap talaga ang mag-apply ng new passport kasi kailangang ma-protektahan ang integrity ng Philippine passport. Kung madali lang makuha yan, mahirap pagkatiwalaan ang nilalaman niyan di ba? Sa new passport application lang mahirap; sa renewal madali na. Kahit isang valid ID lang at old passport pwede na. Kasi naka-pasok na sa database ang biometrics mo. Good luck.

  66. Clyde says:

    Magandang Tanghali po, ask ko lang po nag prepare po ng letter ang PUP to process po po yung passport po namin, its okay to go po diyan within this days to bring the recommendation letter, angemergency lang po para masapatan yung deadline na date

    • admin says:

      Hi, Clyde. Better proceed to the DFA Aseana (main office) itself to find out. They are the ones who make the decision regarding emergency cases. Good luck.

  67. Lauren says:

    Hi admin I set an appointment today. I will be 18 years old on August 21, as I set my appointment today I am considered as minor as I fill up the application form. My appointment date is on September 19 2016. Will I be considered as minor or as an adult already ?

    • admin says:

      Hi, Lauren. You can apply as an adult since by the time they process your application you will be 18.

  68. Lauren says:

    Hi admin I set an appointment today. I will be 18 years old on August 21, as I set my appointment today I am considered as minor as I fill up the application form. My appointment date is on September 19 2016. Will I be considered as minor or as an adult already ? Do I need to bring requirement for minor or requirements for an adult already?

    • admin says:

      Since you will have turned 18 by the time of your passport appointment, you will be considered an adult applicant.

  69. ann says:

    hi po ask ko lang wala pa po akong goverment id but i have the new postal id and then nbi,police and barangay clearance pwede po kaya yun makakuha? nakaschedule po ako this sept.

    • admin says:

      Only the DFA people can decide whether your IDs are enough. I suggest you bring other photo IDs, such as school/college ID, employment ID, etc. While you have the time, why don’t you apply for an SSS ID and voter’s ID? They’re very useful to have. Meanwhile, here’s the list of acceptable IDs.

  70. madz says:

    hi admin. ask ko lang po sana huli ko na po nanotice na mageexpired na pala ung passport q on january 2017 tpos my visit po aq ng aug.17 sa dubai. paano p kaya un? mkakapagtravel po ba aq? thank you.

    • admin says:

      Hello, Madz. You will need to renew your passport. Chances are you will not be allowed to travel to Dubai with less than six months’ validity left on the current one.

  71. kristoffer says:

    magandang umaga po., isa akong seaman ang alis ko po ay sa oct. 6 kaso hnd EOC ang bigay sakin ng company bagkos ay embarkation date with of me and crewing manager pedi po b yan sa courtesy lane kc puno slot hanggang october nung july 21 po ako dumating ng pinas

    • admin says:

      Hello, Kristoffer. Subukan mo na rin baka pumayag sila, tutal nakasakay na naman dati. Try mo sa DFA Aseana o kaya sa DFA Robinson’s Galleria (malapit sa POEA) building.

  72. Cokiemonster says:

    Hi admin onboard ako ngayon sa barko.mag expire passport ko early next yr,pwede ba mag appointment na ako ngayon para sa dec? Or ok lang pag baba ko sa nov? Baka kase magloko ang internet dito.any advice po?thanks..

    • admin says:

      Hi, cookiemonster. By all means, set an appointment online to have your passport renewed. Better do it as soon as possible, before your desired dates become unavailable. Good luck.

  73. Cokiemonster says:

    Maam anong site po para sa online application?thanks..

  74. ma.shiela regala says:

    • admin says:

      Hello, Shiela. Kung OFW ka at magbabakasyon ka lang, pwede ka mag-avail sa Courtesy Lane. Hindi na kailangan ang online appointment for OFW as long as you have a valid employment contract. Dadalhin mo yung valid employment contract mo at lumang passport para ma-renew ito.

  75. jenilyn aquino says:

    • admin says:

      Sa huling pagkakaalam ko, isang PDF file lang naman yun. Magkasama ang appointment confirmation form (yung may date and time) at yung filled in application form. Mayroong QR/barcode ang application form.

  80. Abelardo desaliza says:

    • admin says:

      Do you mean that your friend does not have a printout of the completed application form and appointment confirmation? He will need to present said printout at the DFA in order to be allowed in. Tell your friend to call the DFA Appointment Hotline (02) 737-1000 for clarification.

  85. John says:

    Sna mapansin m din to admin tnx

  86. Raul says:

Ako naman tinry ko din, umabot ako hanggang sa pagpili ng site location kaso pagdating sa date and time lagi na lang nag sservice time out. Tatanong ko lang kung pwede pa din ba mag walk-in? Hope you could help, Thank You!

    • admin says:

      The DFA’s passport appointment system has been outsourced to a new company it seems, and it might be running into some technical hiccups. I suggest you proceed to DFA Aseana to see if they’d allow you to walk in.

  90. Jake says:

    Hi Admin,

    Ask ko lang po may Job offer na ako at Contract from my employer, pwede po bang magamit ung courtesy lane? Saan branch lang po sya pwedeng magamit? Salamat

    • admin says:

      Pwede ka nang gumamit ng Courtesy Lane. Sa pagkakaalam ko, kahit saang branch merong Courtesy Lane pero para makasigurado ka, sa DFA Aseana or DFA Robinson’s Galleria (across the POEA) ka pumunta.

  91. Gracie P. says:

    Hi admin,
    Nagapply po ako ng passport and for pick up na lng yung pinili ko that is for pick up on sept 13 may requirements kaya hingin maliban sa receipt at ids? or dpat ba same day ko yun mapick up ? problem kasi may pasok ako wholeday nun sa school. 10-7pm lang po open yung sa sm manila right?

    • admin says:

      You are not required to pick it up on the day itself. You may collect the passport on your soonest available time, but hopefully not too far after the due date. No other requirements aside from those you’ve mentioned.

  92. Kerrigan says:

    Hello. May I ask po if you got your passport within 7 working days? I read na after 10 days nakuha mo na siya. Is that 10 days including Saturdays and Sundays? I need mine urgently and I only have 13 working days in between my appointment and my flight. Thank you in advance.

    • admin says:

      Working days, when counted towards processing time, do not include Saturdays and Sundays, as a matter of policy (in business and government). I got mine in 10 days, which can be broken down into 7 working days, Saturday, Sunday, and the one day for handover to the courier and delivery). When I applied for my son’s passport (same year I got mine, but six months later), the DFA was experiencing a processing backlog, so it took longer. But you do have a very narrow gap between your appointment date and your flight, so I’d be worried, too. I don’t know how you can expedite the process as it is, except by re-scheduling your appointment at an earlier date or by taking the chance and walking-in at DFA Aseana (bring a printout of your confirmed appointment) and explaining your situation.

  93. rhea flor valdez says:

    hi admin
    ask ko lng po pwede bang ko sa courtesy lane for government employees if ksama ko yung tito ko mag apply din sya ng passport (government employee sya) thanks πŸ™‚

  94. Jacqueline says:

    Goodmorning..tanong ko lang po kase nagkaron sa passport ng typo error sa name.ano bang dapat gawin and anong kailangan na dalin.thank you.

    • admin says:

      As far as I know, you can proceed directly to DFA Aseana office without prior appointment. Bring the usual documents that show the correct spelling of your name.

  95. carmina says:

    Hi admin
    Tanong ko lang po ung tungkol sa passport appointment ko.nagkamali po kasi ako ng filled up ng birth place ko po.I just noticed Lang po nung pinaprint ko na ung application ko.ano po ba gagawin ko?

    • admin says:

      You can leave the incorrect entry for now, unless you want to do the application all over again. Have the entry corrected at the DFA during the data encoding process.

  96. tine says:

    Hi admin ask ko lang po if allowed padin sa sm manila yung walk in?renewal po kasi yung akin eh.

  97. mark says:

    ask ko lng po pwede po bang magrenew sa poea kahit wala ako appointment??

    thx in advance

    • admin says:

      As long as you meet the requirements for Courtesy Lane Availment for OFWs, then you may apply for a renewal even without prior appointment.

    • admin says:

      Hello, Liezl. Sana ay nasa mabuti ka nang kalagayan. Ang maipapayo ko ay dumiretso ka na lang sa DFA na pinakamapalit sa iyo at subukan mong maka-avail ng Courtesy Lane. Ipaliwanag mo sa kanila ang mga pangyayari. Doon mo lang talaga malalaman kung papayag sila o hindi. Good luck.

  106. al says:

    Hi tried setting an appointment for a week now but still error ang page ng dfa for appointment. Tried chrome. mozilla. Internet explorer. Also tried calling and sending message to dfa still no answer. Do you think i can walk in in any offices of dfa?. Im just for renewal while my wife is new applicant. Thank you

    • admin says:

      Many passport applicants have been experiencing similar frustrations, it seems. Only the DFA personnel can decide whether or not to make an exception for you (and your wife) should you take the gamble of walking in at the DFA office.

  107. Jo villanueva says:

    Is it true na meron pong delay sa passport releasing? If ipa expresa ko yung passport ko same lang daw po sa regular ang processing?

    • admin says:

      I’ve not heard of this. Kapag may delay ang passport releasing apektado ang lahat, pero mas maaga mo pa rin makukuha ang passport mo kung pinili mo ang express kaysa regular processing.

  108. Dhesirie says:

    Hi po. I have an appointment this Monday but unfortunately I noticed that I mistakenly put a wrong place of birth. Should there be anything to worry about? and strictly A-4 size lang po ba tinatanggap nila? kasi puro short lang napiprint haha! ang selan ng A-4 nila. :0 Thank you so much po sa response πŸ˜€

    • admin says:

      I’m surprised you managed to have the application form fit in an A-4 size, because I couldn’t. πŸ™‚ They’re not strict at all when it comes to the size of the application form, as long as the entries and the bar code (or is it QR code now?) are visible. You can disclose the birthplace error and have it corrected during the document verification and/or encoding.

  109. maria says:

  110. Mari says:

    Hi po. Ask ko lang po kung pwede akong pumunta ng 11am kahit 4pm pa po ang schedule ko? Salamat po πŸ™‚

  112. maricar grieta says:

    goodmorning mam/sir
    ask ko lang po nappointment po ako last september 27,2016 and my releasing of passport is october 14, 2016 pero hindi ko po siya makuha until now kasi busy po sa work . maari po ba na ivia LBC nlng po para makuha ko ung passport ko thanks

    • admin says:

      Hi, Maricar. The option of having the passport sent through LBC is available only on the same day that you complete your application. Hindi na pwedeng magbago ang isip mo at ihabol iyon. Lalo na kung matagal na palang available for pickup ang passport mo. My advice is to either have an authorized representative claim your passport on your behalf or make the time to pick it up yourself. According to this advisory, passports unclaimed after six months will be cancelled. Go ka na! Ang hirap kaya maka-schedule sa DFA ngayon.

  113. Kath says:

    Hi good day. Ask ko lng po if pwede pa pong mag walk in sa dfa sm manila. Kailngan ko na po kasing magrenew ang earlist po kasi no in all branches is march 30.

    • admin says:

      Hi, Jay. Seniors can avail of Courtesy Lane at any DFA Satellite office. That means she can walk in at the DFA SM Manila office without prior online appointment.

      Yes, John D. Kailangan pa rin. Mas mabuting magdala ka na lang kaysa kulang ang dala mo. Ang hirap kayang makakuha ng slot sa online appointment.

    Kailangan po ng family ko for dependents Pass application sa Singapore this April 2017.

    Sana po ay matulungan nyo ako.

    • admin says:

      Hello, Edgardo. Sa pagkakaalam ko, lahat ng DFA passport processing offices pwede mag-avail ng Courtesy Lane pero baka nagbago na ito. Para makasigurado, sa DFA Aseana (main branch) o sa DFA Robinson’s Galleria (sa tapat ng POEA) sila pumunta. Good luck.

      • Rose Francisco says:

        Hi Edgardo Foronda, may i ask kung nacheck mo of pwede walk in sa aseana and sa may galleria? Thanks!

  120. Dayana says:

I have my birth certificate local and PSA, baptismal, may phil health id, college id, registration card, police clearance, brgy. Clearance, voters certification.

    • admin says:

      Hi, Dayana. It looks like you have sufficient documents to prove your identity. Proceed to the DFA first. Minsan naman hindi hinahanap ang NBI Clearance, lalo na may police clearance ka na.

    Hi Admin.

    New Applicant po for passport. Magtatanong lang po sana ako kung pwede po ako sa Courtesy Lane pero wala pa po akong Employment Contract kasi po nag aapply palang po ako sa Shipping Company. Walk-in po sana ang gagawin ko sa may Robinsons Galleria. By the way, I become a seafarer soon. At kailangan ko na po makakuha ng passport para po less problem na po. I hope na matulungan mo po ako.

    Take care always and God Bless.

    Hi admin, I’d like to ask how to cancel a booking appointment for NCR West. It required passport payment within 48 hours and I wasn’t able to pay it on time. I’d like to change the schedule and the site so I won’t have to go to NCR West site anymore but I can’t as I still have an existing online application? How would I be able to cancel it when I don’t have the code yet? Thanks a lot.

    I just came in at Sm Manila DFA at 3pm.To start with I am a public teacher and a pwd with an RA condition one of my symotoms are difdiculty of movement especially in the morning and I even absent myself today from school to renew my passport.Not knowingly that they have a minimum of 100 applicants only in the morning per say for Persons with Disability? Upon looking at their page I didnt find any notifications that they have this type of service to the public.I think that at first they should clearly post this and inform the public about this 100 minimum of pwds applicant.If I were informed I wouldnt be this disappointed going here from Valenzuela City.
