How to Get a DFA Appointment?

There are actually different ways that I’ve learned where you can get a DFA appointment. Below is a list of them. PASSPORT DFA APPOINTMENTS ARE FREE!

guide on how to get a philippine passport

Online Appointment – this is what we recommend for 2018! Access the new DFA online appointment setting system for a DFA passport renewal or new applications. PLEASE DO IT YOURSELF and DON’T PAY A TRAVEL AGENCY TO DO IT FOR YOU! IT’S FREE!

Appointment in the Province. I suggest you prepare the necessary requirements before doing this. After that, you may access the DFA online appointment system and start filling out the necessary details which will be shown in the step-by-step guide in the following subject within this article.

Walk-in appointment.  The norm in setting a DFA appointment would mean having to wait long lines since it’s on a first-come, first-serve basis.  You must also pay a fee for the professional skill in setting up a schedule for your DFA passport appointment contributed by the person assigned to do that job in DFA offices.

NO APPOINTMENT NEEDED for the list mentioned below can go to the Passport Courtesy Lane without any prior appointment:

  • Senior citizens (60 years and over) plus one (1) travel companion
  • Minors seven (7) years old and below (with their parents and minor siblings)
  • People with disabilities (PWDs) with PWD ID or visible disability plus one (1) travel companion
  • Single parents (with Solo Parent ID) and their minor children
  • Visibly pregnant women or with a medical certificate
  • OFW with sufficient proof of status such as iDOLE Card, valid employment contract, work visa

No Appointment Needed for the Philippines PassportImportant Reminders:

  • All Courtesy Lane applications and facilities including accommodation or referrals will be treated as expedited applications and should pay the expedited fee of Php 1,200.00.
  • Please be reminded that all applications filed on a Saturday should be charged with expedited fees.
  • Senior citizens have the option to choose regular process priced at PHP 950.00.
  • Courtesy Lane facilities are available in all Consular Offices nationwide.

MY PASSPORT IS EXPIRED – What should I do?

Back then, I was worried because I thought that if my DFA passport expired, this would mean I would have to get a new one and go back to the basics to accomplish all of the requirements and get it issued again. However, as I read the official website of the DFA, I didn’t need to get a new one at all, I only needed to renew it unless it is lost.

Since I want to speed things up because I want to travel in three (3) months time, I opted for the DFA Online Appointment System, since it was faster, more convenient, and you could just do it at home without having to wait in long lines just to get it done.

If you want to know how this new DFA online appointment system is done, then follow this step-by-step guide to start.

Step 1. Click the link and read the Terms and Conditions. Mark the checkbox once you’ve read everything and choose whether to apply for an individual appointment or group appointment with either your friends or family.

  22. Ask ko lang po, pano po kung yung Birth place ko is ang nalagay ko ay yung present address ko. Mapaprocess pa rin po ba yung appointment ko? Thanks po.

    1. Actually did that – mistakenly put my address instead of Birth Place. You can proceed to the appointment but tell the officer that you have a mistake in your birthplace, they’ll ask you to double-check it before printing.

  23. Kagaya din po ng karamihan ang problema qu.. Wala po aqung middle innicial.. Ask qu lng po makakakuha po ba aqu.. Kase late register po ang psa qu.. Salamat po..

  65. Hi, i understand that there is a lot of people who wanted to get a passport. However ss per everyday experience your online application is really very limited timing only. Few seconds the application will time out. If this will happen i think we filipino feel that you are stopping us from travelling overseas if thats how your online paltform works. Please know that its online anyone can take and theres a lot of cancellation going on before they take application as well. And any urgent cases wont be emmidiately attended.. thanks

  66. Ask ko lang po ikukuha ko po ng passport yun dalawa ko po anak na 7 and 5yr old pwede ko po ba isabay yung 12yr old ko pa na anak at isabay ang pagrenew ko ng passport?

      1. So kahit po may isang 12 years old syang kasama ay pwede nyang isabay yun sa pagkuha ng passport nung 7 and 5 years old nyang anak?

  67. now from one month i try book but all months full and i have to travel on jun.theres another option?if theres can u send me in my email .tnx . important.plzz

  68. Ilang beses na akong nakakuha ng slots this year for my family last January and now April. Lahat yun a week before the appointment. I can get earlier pa dun. My advice sa mga gustong makakuha ng slot is to check their website regularly. And ito ang dapat nyong abangan:

    1. Cancelled/Rescheduled appointment – nag oopen ang slot kapag may nagcancel or nagparesched ng appointment nila. Random ito at kahit saang location. Kaya dapat lahat ng location icheck nyo rin (if kailangang kailangan nyo na ng passport). My advice is to check for it during waking hours (kung kelan tayo gising at may time para magcancel/resched ng appointment). Tingin nyo kung kayo ang magccancel ng appointment mga anong oras kaya? Paunahan nalang sa pagpapasched kasi paisa isa lang ito.

    2. Mass slots from DFA – nagoopen ng maraming slots ang DFA randomly. Nakatsempo ako this January, lahat ng location may available na slots for the month of Jan-June. 11pm onwards ako nagcheck. Hindi sabay sabay na nag oopen yung slots sa lahat ng location (pdeng Aseana muna, then after several mins. sa Manila nmn etc). And then today April 4 11 pm onwards, nag-open sila ng slots for the month of April(10-30), lahat din ng oras open sa lahat ng site location nila. Madalas kong icheck ang website nila (to outwit them), kaya masasabi kong random day ito. My advice is lagi nyong icheck ang website nila, around 11pm-3am (based on my experience). AND!! pag natsempuhan nyong may isang location na maraming open na slot for the same month, wag na kayong umalis sa website nila. haha. the following mins. or hour mag oopen na rin ang ibang location. tyaga lang po kung gusto nyong makakuha ng maaga at malapit na slot sa location nyo. di nyo na po kailangang gumastos tyaga lang po talaga.

    Additional advice, pag may nakita kayong slot kunin nyo na (be sure na makakapunta kayo sa day na yun) kahit medyo malayo yung lugar pero willing kayong puntahan o kaya nmn matagal pa yung date. KUNIN NIYO NA. mas ok na may slot na kayo kesa sa wala. Then, before your appointment mag abang kayo ng mas maaga or mas malapit na location at ireschedule nyo na lang appointment nyo. Make sure to confirm it on your email.

    Hoping this will help..

  71. My husband and I have secured passports before, but did not travel abroad nor have had appointment with the DFA. Think thats more than 10 years ago. Can we just apply for passport first time, or does it mean renewal?

    1. Hi Ms. Araceli, you need to apply for renewal nalang. 🙂 same po yan nung sakin. from lumang passport na 10 years old na. nagpa online appoinment ako then under renewal lang po sya.

    1. Hello, you can regularly check the site pre. Nag kaka vacant kasi pag minsan may nag cancel ng appointments. check mo lang from time to time. tsamba2 lang kasi

  72. Hello! I was wondering if they will get your old passport or not? I am scheduled to renew my passport thos Friday (feb 2) but I will be travelling abroad on Feb 10, so I need my old passport back since I will be travelling. Is that possible?

    1. pwede po ba magtanung nakakuha na po ako ng passport kaso nawala po ano po ang gagawin ko.gusto ko po sanang magkuha ng bago.

  73. Hello, I’d like to ask about the “walk-in appointment”. If I go to the DFA without setting an online appointment, would I still be accommodated that day? I have not read any forbidding so I’m wondering. Thanks!

    1. Questions po:
      My sister is TNT in Italy for 31 years she lost her passport long time ago, paano po ang gagawin nya, gusto nyang umuwi ng Pilipinas pero walang passport, alam po nya na ma dedeport sya once na kumuha ng police clearance sa Italian police, saan po ba ang Embassy ng Pilipinas sa Rome. Wala po sya kahit anung identification card sa Italy dahil nga TNT, makakatulong po ba ang birth certificate kung padadalhan ko from on line application ng birth certificate. Paki payuhan nyo naman po ako kung anu ang dapat kong gagawin. Inaasahan ko po ang inyong tulong dahil mayroon po syang karamdaman doon. Salamat po at God Bless po sa inyo. Inaasahan ko po ang inyong reply.

      1. Kung gusto nyang umuwi na talaga, same lang din ng deportation un.. So pumunta pa rin sya sa Italian police para madirect sya sa Philippines Embassy/ Consulate in Rome and sila magaassist sa kanya kung panu makauwi.

  74. Good am po, ask ko lng po paano kong mgkaiba po pangalan ng mother ko at spelling ng name ng father ko sa birth certificate ko at sa merried certificate ko namin pero wala naman pong broblema sa name ko …ok lng pba yo? Thank you po.

  75. Hello,

    What does “supporting documents to prove your identity” mean for renewal of passports? Do we still need the PSA-issued Birth Certificate and other documents like nbi clearance, police clearance, barangay clearance, marriage contract etc?

    Please clarify, I’ve been researching about this and everybody’s got different opinions. Thank you

  76. Any Ideas po pag may maling info dun sa Application form? Mali po kasi yung middle name na nalagay ko.
    Thank you in advance po sa makaktulong. 🙂

  77. Sabi ng DFA hindi nirerrcommend travel agency to process the passport kaya daw nila ginawang online appointment. very costly kasi sa travel agency.

  79. Are walk-ins still accepted at the DFA in Cebu? If so, I assume it just requires standing in line. I am just unable to find a straight answer. Thanks!

  86. Hi there! As a 21st century educator facing ASEAN Integration may I ask special favor in your humble office for a Saturday schedule to have a passport one of the major prerequisites in nternational trainings and seminars to contribute in making our country’s government HEI’s more competent in upholding our vision to be an ASEAN University in 2020. In this regards, please help me obtain my passport for the said major purpose. I intend to apply for an online schedule to apply but it was fully-booked til the end of December 2017. May I hear from you. Thank you so much for your kind consideration and approval.

    Note: All requirements had been acquired, ready for filing of application.

    1. Personally, it was really hard to look for available slots as every night and morning, you need to check the DFA website if they release green slots. Good thing, I am working in a BPO so I am widely awake. As far as I know, confirmed appointment is the most needed in starting the process. Hopefully, you’ll have it on time, Madam. By the way, I am a proud student of yours way back 2007- 2008 in ANHS.

  87. Hi po,I try to book online per pro nmn full ng nov.and dec. Wla na po bang I bang Para an to apply passport.thanks

  88. Hi! Im from Angeles city but i want to get my passport in Manila coz i heard that it is faster getting there. My sister-in-law told me that she took almost 2 months waiting for their passport even she paid the express process.

    Accepted parin ba ang Walk-in application-appointment in different consular offices in manila?

    1. online appointment required , pag my appoinment kana tsaka ka punta DFA…good luck nalang sa apppoinment…

  90. Bakit po dun sa appointment, ang requirement is PSA issued birth certificate. Hindi na po NSO? Tatangapin pa ba ang NSO birth certificate?

  91. Igot an appointment already for my sister but I’m in doubt for the other things to do, pa ano ba yong application form, fill in ba sya by ballpen or online. What did u mean with settle the payment in the step no. 12? I can’t remember I had to pay for getting an appointment. Kailangan på ba ipasa to online or yong in person na?

  92. Kach, wanna ask if magapply din ako with my daughter na yrs old need pa ba appointment? Or i can directly go to their office? Thanks 🙂
