Bakit po kung kelan computerized na po ang processing ng passport mas lalo pa po humirap ang pagkuha ng passport? Ang sched po hanggang ngayon wala pa po available? April? Samantalang dati po kahit madaling araw ka pa pumila sigurado maipapaprocess at pag uwi mo sa hapon may sched ka na agad kung kelan makukuha. Bakit po ngayon ganyan na ang process? Sa pagkuha pa lang ng sched pahirapan na...ano po nangyari?

10-year Philippine Passport Validity Begins January 2018

There’s a lot to be excited about for the new year. Along with our updated travel bucket-lists comes the good news that the Philippine passport validity has officially been extended to 10 years. Starting January 2018, the 10 year validity is to be implemented under the Philippine Passport Act.

However, passport holders 18 years old and below will still be issued 5-year passports. According to the DFA, minors are issued shorter validity because of the higher possibility of change in facial and other physical features.

For the meantime, there will be no price increase for the new Philippine passport which is priced at P950.

If you’re looking to renew your passport, make sure to schedule your appointment months ahead of your trip as slots tend to get fully booked. Once scheduled, don’t forget to bring all the necessary requirements:

  • last valid passport
  • accomplished application form (download here)
  • valid picture ID
  • other additional/supporting documents e.g. photocopies of old passport, valid id, etc.

For more information about passport renewal procedures and requirements, check out this guide to renewing your Philippine passport. Is it your first time to apply for one? Here’s what first-time passport applicants need to know.
