You Can Now Get Your PH Passport in 6 Working Days

Foreign Affairs Secretary Alan Peter S. Cayetano recently announced that in a bid to provide Filipino citizens with faster, more efficient and secure passport services, passport applicants will no longer have to wait almost a month to get a hold of their passport and can now get it in as early as six working days.

Effective October 1, travelers who submit their applications at the DFA Consular Offices in Metro Manila may now get their passports in 12 working days instead of 15. If they opt to avail of the express processing though, they may get it in six working days instead of seven.

The same processing fees apply though: P950 for regular processing and P1,200 for express processing.

Meanwhile, if applying outside Metro Manila – the wait time for regular processing will be cut down from 20 working days to 12, and seven instead of 10 for express processing.

Currently, the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) is also working on reducing the two-month wait time for passport applications filed in other countries via Philippine Embassies and Consulates General.
