Passport Direct is an online service for renewing Philippine Passports brought to us by Teleserv.ph. The good news, Passport Direct is now accredited for New Applications online aside from Passport Renewals.
There are some important changes you need to know to the new policy of the Department of Foreign Affairs that requires personal appearance for those renewing to the new Machine-Readable Passports.
“Personal appearance is required for your thumbprints. However, as a Passport Direct customer, you are entitled to a priority lane that reduces the time spent at the DFA to around 15 minutes only and there are revised requirements for the passport application.”
If you want to know the requirements, check the links below.
General Reminder : Personal appearance is required except when the applicant is:
* 7 years old and below;
* 65 years old and above or
* mentally or physically incapacitated.
You may call them anytime 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at (02) 737-1000.
