Passport Services

Passport services are by appointment only, and require personal appearance at the Consulate. Passport release is about six (6) weeks from the date of processing (there may be delays due to the COVID19 situation). Release is by express mail only upon receipt of the passport by the Consulate from the Philippines. Please submit a self-addressed prepaid express mail envelope together with your passport application.

 

Passport Renewal

Passport renewal refers to the replacement of a current or expired passport. 

We strongly advise all Filipinos to renew their passport 9 months before its expiry, because many countries require a visitor’s passport to have at least six months’ validity beyond the departure from their country. Airlines also usually do not issue plane tickets to a passport with less than six months’ validity. Many embassies and consulates will refuse to issue a visa to passports with less than six months validity.
