Renewing Passports:
The Embassy/Consulate General receives and processes applications for ePassports, which in turn is sent to the Department of Foreign Affairs in Manila for printing and issuance. Please allow at least 6 weeks for the entire process up to release of passport to applicant. The Embassy/Consulate General advises all Philippine passport holders, whose passports are expiring within the next 6 months, to renew their passports if they intend to travel within the aforementioned period. All Filipino citizens applying for passports with the Philippine Embassy/Consulate General will no longer need to submit photographs, as their picture, together with their fingerprints and signature, will be taken on-site.  This means that all passport applicants, regardless of age, are henceforth required to appear personally.

There is no need for an appointment as applicants are served on a walk-in basis.

For a lost or stolen Passport one will additionally need a duly-accomplished passport application form, typed or printed legibly in black or blue ink, making sure to fill out the “Affidavit of Loss” portion on the form. Photocopy of a state ID, driver’s license, permanent resident alien card, or any other valid photo identification

A 15-day waiting period, on top of the 6-week processing period, will be imposed if the lost passport is still valid (unexpired) and if the passport was not issued by the Embassy/Consulate General where applicant is applying for replacement.

A travel document is a certification or identifying document containing the description and other personal circumstances of the bearer, which is issued in lieu of a passport and valid for one-way, direct travel to the Philippines. A travel document is issued to a Filipino citizen being sent back to the Philippines or who needs to urgently travel home but is unable to fully comply with the requirements for the issuance of a regular passport, at the time of emergency.  Proof of urgency/emergency is needed.

Nationals of a number of countries with which the Philippines maintains diplomatic relations, including the United States, may avail themselves of visa-free entry into the Philippines, provided their stay will not exceed 30 days. Please contact the Philippine Embassy/Consulate General for information on which countries are extended this privilege. US citizens who wish to stay more than 30 days in the Philippines and nationals of countries who are not extended the 30-day visa free privilege should apply for a visa before traveling to the Philippines.
