  1. hi..i would just like to ask if pwed lain na tao like father ang mukuha sa akng passport for the releasing?
    thank you.

    1. Hi tinuod 2 ka valid id ila requirements?

    2. Hi tinuod 2 ka valid id ila requirements?

    3. Hi tinuod 2 ka valid id ila requirements?

    4. possible. The requirement says just one valid ID and 3 supporting docs. But supporting doc may include an ID. So technically, you can provide at least 1 ID given that you have 3 non-ID supporting docs.

  2. hi kinahanglan na ang online karon sa pag renew

  3. No available schedule.. tsk! tsk! tsk! how long has this been, three four months?

  5. Hi i been trying to make an appointment but why i can't click in the available date onlly the fully book date. I really need to renew my passport
    Please help!!

    1. Hi. As for checking there's no.more available slots in Cebu dfa. Maybe that's the reason

  6. Enjoy the convenience of prioritized application processing by booking a slot for your passport application in any of the DFA's participating Regional Consular Offices, Satellite Offices, or Philippine Embassy/Consulate abroad.

    -- it's not convenience at all...butangan pa lang ug comment area or suggestion page ilang system nga gihimo para makabaw sila nga daghan nahasol sa ilang paagi.

  7. hi admin, i need to renew my passport, but it loOks like no slot available, but can i pay first the transaction fee while waiting for the slot?
