The Department of Foreign Affairs announced the launch of the DFA Passport Appointment System which can now be done online.
Under this system, passport applicants can set an appointment with the DFA-Passport Office for the filing of their passport applications.
There are now 6 branches of the DFA where you could set up your appointment. They are DFA Aseana, SM Manila, Robinsons Galleria, SM Megamall, Ali Mall, and Alabang Town Center.
You don’t need to secure an appointment if you’re a senior citizen, infant and minor below 1 year old, person with disability, or an OFW. For OFWs, you have to bring with you your Overseas Employment Certificate as proof.
To learn how to set an appointment, watch the YouTube video below.
