Consular Processing: Monday to Friday, 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM

Passport


The Philippine Consulate General processes applications for passport. They are transmitted to the Department of Foreign Affairs in Manila for printing. Please allow two (2) months processing time from the date of application up to the date of release of the new passport to the applicant. The Philippine Passport is at all times the property of the Republic of the Philippines. It must be surrendered upon demand by an authorized representative of the Philippine Government. Alteration, addition, or destruction of contents is strictly prohibited. Any unauthorized change will render a passport invalid and will have accompanying penalties. Using the passport as collateral is against the law and will automatically render the passport cancelled. The information provided in the passport application form must be true and correct. Applicants should bring complete requirements, which should be authentic. Under the law, making false statements in the application form, furnishing falsified or forged documents in support thereof are punishable by law. Also, the Consulate reserves the right to request additional requirements, if necessary.
