4. Come back to the scheduled date of release. Bring the claim stub and receipt.


  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?

  8. Hi
    Walay priority line for balikbayan ofw sa cebu?way available slot for appointment sa month sako bakasyon nya 3weeks rapod aq bakasyon.

  9. This inconvenience of DFA PROCESSING is a way for them to redirect the concrent to the trqvel agency. Sorry for this but this is a form of corruption. This shoudl be addressed to the Government it self..

  10. CALLING THE ATTENTION OF DFA SEC. ALAN PETER CAYETANO this problem of DFA cebu is getting worse and Too bad WALK-IN is no longer possible. How about the CONCERN of our Seafarers whose schedule of Passport Renewal is in Rush.. How about if the schedule of deployment is Next month and the Appontment availability is after 3-4 months..

  11. ask lang ko when ang available schedule for renewal passport ?

  12. Hi just want to ask po sa dfa cebu pag kukuhanan ko din po passport 1yr old baby ko.. Need ko pa po ba magpa appointment?or ok lang n wala na.. Dalawa nmn po kami kukuha.. May courtesy lane daw po kc for 7yrs.old and below

    1. Mao sad na ako pangatana kay magkuha unta kog passport sa akong baby, pwede ba sad kaha makakuha ang parents.

  13. Ibalik nalang unta tong maglinya oi, gi negosyo naman hinoon ning slots sa DFA. Maypa tong magbuntagay nalang ug linya kesa magpaabot pakag 3 months b4 magka avail ang Slots. tsk tsk inconvenience jud ni ba

  38. There is nothing more important than giving our best effort, all of the time. On an exam day, a good effort means that students attempt everything, even if that means they need to come back at lunch or after school.

  39. Mint tea, turmeric tea, ginger-and-lemon tea, and chamomile tea can help you with the detox process. You could also try a fourth option, which is apple cider vinegar. It is a healthy combo of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and good gut bacteria.Have you ever failed a drug test? It isn't a fun experience. Let's say you just got offered a new job, but there's a required drug test beforehand. Even with an increasing number of states legalizing and decriminalizing marijuana use, you can still be penalized for it showing up on a drug test. Visit:

SCAM: My First Scam Text This Year; 850000 Pesos from GMA Kapuso Foundation

It's a brand new year for everyone, including local scammers. And despite all the efforts by PLDT and Globe Telecom to curb text message scammers, from time to time, they still creep out and show up in our inboxes. And as hard to believe as the messages of winning some great amounts of money is the fact that there are still people who believe them. I personally know someone and that scam text message triggered events that turn her life upside down. So my point is, we still need to be careful regarding these scam messages. The danger is real! So without further ado, here's the scam message I received a few days ago. On Sunday, January 7, 2018 at exactly 3:33PM (PH time), I received this message from a certain Atty.

How Much Does a MRI Scan Costs in the Philippines?

My dad recently needs to have a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan for his prostate problem. So I made a little research on how much does it cost to have one. Well, turns out, it depends on many factors such as which part of the body is to be scanned. There's also this technique called "MRI with contrast" wherein the patient will be injected with a chemical to make the scan clearer. For your information this technique of adding contrast is know as Gadolinium Contrast Medium . It adds cost to the procedure but with more clarity, the more you can trust the diagnosis. MRI Machine KasugaHuang , CC BY-SA 3.0 , Link So, in my father's case, we had a Prostate MRI and I assume it's without contrast since he was never injected with the "contrast" chemicals. We got it in i-Scan Healthcare Inc here in Quezon City. The cost is 13000 Pesos . Please take not that the amount was just for the scan and the result will be read by a separate professional. Some la
