How to Apply for a Passport at DFA Lucena

LUCENA CITY, QUEZON, PHILIPPINES — For Region IV-A residents, there is a DFA regional office at Lucena City in Quezon Province to cater your passport needs. If you are from Metro Manila who desperately & urgently need a passport but could not get an early online appointment, then a walk-in application at DFA Lucena may be a possible last-resort option for you.  (UPDATE: As of May 2016, DFA Lucena have also implemented the manual appointment system similar to DFA Pampanga’s.)

 

06/29/2016 UPDATE: Selected Regional Consular Offices (including DFA Pampanga & DFA Lucena) in the Philippines, DFA Manila (Aseana) and Satellite Offices within Metro Manila (Ali Mall, SM Manila, SM Megamall and Alabang Town Center) are now implementing the new online appointment system, which started last June 17, 2016. Please visit https://www.passport.gov.ph/appointment/ to schedule an appointment.

 

 

 

DISCLAIMER: Just like you, I am just a humble applicant who availed the services of the Department of Foreign Affairs. I have absolutely no idea on the status of your on-going applications. If you badly need to follow-up, contact DFA Lucena at (042) 710-4526.

HOW TO APPLY FOR YOUR PASSPORT IN DFA LUCENA

 

UPDATE: As of May 2016, DFA Lucena have implemented a manual appointment system (similar to DFA Pampanga’s). Meaning, no walk-in and you have to go at least TWICE to their office. The first, to get an appointment schedule. The second, for the application proper.

 

  1. If you are from Metro Manila, ride a bus bound to Lucena and get-off at Arias. It’s a junction road separating buses going to the Lucena Grand Terminal and Lucena City proper. Travel time is 3-4 hours, depending on traffic.
  2. From Arias, ride a jeepney to Pacific Mall.
  3. Get an appointment schedule online through https://www.passport.gov.ph (usually 1-2 months from the date of your visit).
  4. DFA Lucena is located at the 3rd floor of Metro Pacific Mall. On your scheduled appointment date, go to your designated counter to have your documents checked and verified for any discrepancies and incomplete details. It helps if you have back-up supporting documents in case they find discrepancies in your primary documents.
  5. Proceed to the cashier for payment.
  6. After payment, proceed to the encoding section where your personal information will be encoded, photo taken and fingerprint scanned. Double-check the encoded entries for typographical errors.
  7. They will return your receipt, now stamped with the release date.
  8. Optional: If you wish to have your passport delivered by the courier inside DFA Lucena, just proceed to their counter and pay the courier fee. Expect to receive your passport after an additional day or two from the release date.
  9. If you didn’t availed the courier service, just return on your scheduled release date & time and bring valid IDs. (Note: Regular processing is 15 working days, while rush processing is 7 working days (Saturdays excluded). This may not always be followed so refer to the posted timeline at the office.)
  10. Congrats!

The best solution for passports? Apply early.

  27. Hello po Sir Powell! I already made an appointment for the application of passport. For assurance lang po, nakalagay po kasi doon ito, “Please confirm your chosen appointment by clicking here” and “If you do not confirm within 120 hours, your provisional appointment will be automatically cancelled to give way to other applications.” Tapos pupunta na po sya dun sa view appointment, pero wala naman pong Confirm button dun, paano ko maaassure na hindi mawawala yung slot ko? Thank you for your help! 🙂

    • Yes po. Naview ko na po. Wala po talagang confirm button? Basta po nadownload na yung form ay okay na po na reserve na yung slot? Thanks again. 🙂

    • “Confirmation link might be expired or invalid”. I tried again to click the button, tapos may nakalagay po na ganito sa taas, pero navi-view ko pa rin naman po yung appointment ko. Okay lang po yun, di naman po mawawala yung slot? Thanks! 🙂

    • Thank you very much po and sorry for the inconvenience! 🙂

    • Marinel, your birth certificate should be authenticated by Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA, formerly NSO). NBI Clearance is not necessary, but it is valid as a supporting ID.

    • Hello po. Ask ko lang po kung ano oras bukas ng mall? And how to get po sa pacific mall from lucena port? 🙂

    • Hello po, tanong ko lang po kung paano po if magkaiba ung birth year sa NSO ng applicant? Kse diba po sa ibang NSo dalawa ang birth date, isang sa taas at isang sa baba? Ung birth month at date p pareho pero ung year iba. Sa taas eh 1988 tas sa baba 1993 na. Pwede po ba un ipresent sa dfa? Late registered po kase. Salamat

    • Sir, why do applicants need to pay for delivery fee, since we’re already paying for 1.2k for rush processing. I thought the delivery fee is already included.

    • The delivery fee is optional. You would only pay the delivery fee if you would like the passport to be delivered at your house. Otherwise, you should pick it up at the DFA office where you applied on the date specified on your receipt. The rush processing fee is because the hastened release of the passport.

  34. Good day po. Tanong ko lang po. Yung passport ko po expired n last 2012 pa. kelangn po ba renew or new n po ang kukunin ko? Isa pa po ang nakalagay po s nso ko sa addreas is “nag. Lag.” Naja abreviate . Wala po ba magiging prob kung sakali. Hoping for ur urgent reaponse. Salamat po.

  61. Hi ask ko lang po kung ma-acknowledge yung appointment ko kc for renewal po ako kaso may sister made it new applicant..ok lng po ba yun? O i need to do something mabago ko yung purpose of visit ko?

    magtatanong lang po.. yung mother kopo kc yung passport nya nakaapelyido sa asawa nya (father kopo) pero nag hiwalay sila at hindi kasal.. pero nag ka passport sya na ang dala nyang apelyido yung ky papa.. kaso po ay magpapakasal sya sa foreigner.. paano po kaya baguhin yung apelyido nya na maging apelyido nya nung dalaga po sya? pede po kaya i apply nya un sa new passport?

    • Hi Mike, pwede naman po ipa-revert to maiden name during renewal if they are legally separated. Would just need to provide additional documents.

    • ahh.. yung requirements po ay doon ko nlng po itatanong sa DFA Lucena sir?? sir maraming salamat ha… nag woworry kc yung mother ko eh… God Bless you Sir

    • Wait, tama ba, hindi sila nagpa-kasal pero nabigyan sya ng passport before as married? Better siguro, kuha ka din ng Certificate of No Marriage (CENOMAR) nya kung wala kayo nung document requirements na nasa link kanina.

    • opo sir.. hindi po sila kasal.. pero nabigyan po ng passport na nakaapelyido sa ex-husband po nya.. cge sir.. check kopo yung Link and sabhin kopo to get the CENOMAR.. maraming salamat po ulit…

  64. Good day sir,
    May possibilities ba na mabigyan ako ng appointment this October 2016 din? Kasi nag check ako online appointment ay wala na slot. Kung doon na lang ako kukuha ng appointment mabibigyan kaya ako October appointment?Salamat

    • Kasi according sa kakilala ko natanggap sila first 100 applicants? Di na kasi ako makakaabot today sa La union dapat kaya ipapacancel ko appointment ko. Batangas pa kasi ako kaya naghahanap ako ibang alternative way para makakuha na hindi alanganin ang oras.

  65. Hi! Nagwowork ako ngaun sa ibang bansa, gusto ko sanang iapply ng passport ang 2 kong anak, 14 yrs.old at 2 yrs. old. Pwede bang gumawa na lang ako ng authorization letter sa guardian nila na in behalf of me sya un kasama pag-aapply ng mga anak ko. Pwede po ba yun?

  66. Mr. Powell, may idea po ba kayo if nag ooperate din ng Saturday ung sa Authentication sa DFA megamall at ang timings?

  67. Hellow po sir Powell online din po b pag kuha ng NBI jn lucena sa grand???bukas n po kc sked ko sa dfa lucena??? Makakakuha din po kaya agad ako..

  68. Hello po Yes po tinanggap naman nila ung Birth Certificate ko from NSO yellow green

  69. Sir un po ids ko TIN ID….new Postal ID….Phil health ID…..NBI..old postal id……Mkakuha po kaya ako ng passport,new applicant po ako…..salamat po ng marami sa sasagot.

  70. Sorry makulit. Then in Arias, what signboard ng jeep ang sasakyan ko going to Pacific Mall?
    And ganun pag pauwi, going to Arias din ba? Not the terminal?
    Thank you again! YOU are a big help.

    • Sakay ka jeep papunta Lucena Bayan, pero sa Pacific Mall ka lang baba. Nasa Arias lang din terminal nila.

      Pauwi: pwede kang sumakay jeep papunta Grand Terminal (around 25 minutes kapag walang traffic) para sa terminal ka makasakay, or pwede ring balik sa Arias then abang ng bus pabalik.

  71. At tsaka ano po ung mga supporting documents na pwd dalhin pag punta dfa lapit n po kc sked ko. Ty po

    • Mr Powell, ano kayang requirements if ipakuha ko sa iba ung passport ko aside sa authorization letter? Thank u

    • Hi Francis, aside from the authorization letter w/ signature, pakita sya valid ID nya (photocopy na din para sure), tapos yung claim slip po.

    • From Grand Terminal, sakay po kayo ng jeep papunta sa Bayan, then sa Pacific Mall. Kung galing naman po kayo NCR, wag po kayo bumaba sa Grand Terminal. Magpababa po kayo sa Arias, then isang jeep na dadaan sa Pacific Mall.

  72. Sir Powell pag po ba taga Lucena na kailangan pang magpaschedule para sa appointment? O pipila nalang ng maagap?

  73. Anu po dapat isuot? Pwede ba naka maong? Ung damit po basta may kwelyo? Suggest po kayo tnx

    • Hi Boy Tanong, balikat at ulo lang naman kukunan ng picture kaya wala naman problema sa maong. Ayos yan na magsuot ka ng damit na may kwelyo

  74. Ask lng po kung paano kumuha ng pag passport new applicants lng po ako pwde po b khit ala appointment pag pumunta SA Dfa lucena tnx.

    Thank you

    • Wala pa po ako nun sir kase fresh graduate palang po ako ung SSS ID ko po on Process pa ganun din sa TIN ID

    • Hi Nerissa!

      Ask ko lang if tinaggap sa DFA Lucena yung NSO Birth Certificate? I’m hearing rumors kasi na dapat daw from PSA and the color of the paper is blue. Thank you. 🙂

      Hi Sir Powell,
      Same question po. Tinatanggap ap po kaya ang NSO birth certificate (yellow green yung papel) sa DFA Lucena? Thank you.

  77. pwede ba mag walk in sa dfa lucena? urgent po kasi renewal lang naman po ako.. kasi mahirap mag online registration matagal yung araw bago ka bumalik almost monthly yung appointment!!

  79. Tanong lang po. Paano po kung hindi pumasok sa e-mail yung appointment form? pano po kaya marecover yun. kasi papaprint ko po sana eh. salamat po

    • sir d ba pwede mag set ng appoinment ng weekends at holidays?

  80. Hello sir. Bakit po na nagttext pa sila ng may technical problem daw. Pina rush ko na po sya para mas mabilis tas sasabihin ng ganun. Kelangan ko na po sya as soon as possible.

    • Hi sir. Itatanong ko lang po. Dapat po kasi noong 30 pa yung release ng passport ko. Tinawagan ko na po lahat ng pwedeng tawagan sa dfa lucena at dfa main. Pero walang nasagot. Kelangan ko na talaga yung passport this week. Ano po gagawin ko ? Salamat.

    • Digitized postal ID? Or yung laminated? Yung laminated mababa chance. Kung digitized, minsan depende sa nag-aassess pero dapat meron ka pang iba.

  81. Ask ko lang po pag 5-year old ang bata pwedeng walk-in? Ung parents ba pwede nading mag wak-in?thanks in advance

    • Hi Glaiza, yung 5 y/o pwede po walk-in pero dapat may kasama at least 1 parent. Yung parent, however, dapat may appointment kung kukuha rin ng passport. Hassle no?

  82. tanong lang po kung ano mga requirements pag replacement lang ng passport? nabasa kasi sya..

    • Original and photocopy of passport, affidavit of mutilation, valid IDs. Damaged passports can only be renewed at the DFA Aseana Branch.

  83. The best way to go to DFA LUCENA from Paranaque via commute?
    Thank you so much.

  84. Hi Sir! Pang second time ko na po nag-try mag set ng appointment. Yung first kasi walang dumating sa email ko na appointment code. Ngayon yun ulit ang problem ko. Bakit po kaya ganon? Gmail ang gamit ko. Nung tinawag ko sya sa DFA pinag email lang nila ako ng request for cancellation of appointment pero parang di rin nila na recceive kasi nag bbounce palagi email ko kaya inantay ko na lang maka 3 days para automatic na ma-cancel yung appointment ko.Sana po matulungan niyo ako.

    • Hi JROMAN, nung tumawag po kayo tinanong nyo na rin po ba kung paano i-resched instead of cancel lang? Try nyo nalang po i-contact ulit, baka mali po yung email address na sinesendan nyo.

    • Hello! Yes po tinanong ko sila. Sabi kasi nila kailangan daw muna ma-cancel yung previous appointment para makakuha ng panibago. Nung na-cancel na po nag-try ulit ako magpa-appointment. Pagdating po sa part na kailangan i-check ang link/code for confirmation, wala po ulit nareceive email ko. Sa tingin ko po OK naman email ko kasi everyday ko siya nagagamit sa work. Nakaka send/receive naman siya. O dapat ba naka all caps yung pag enter ko ng email ko since yung nasa sample nila is naka all caps din? Sorry ha stuoid question ata? Hehe.

  85. good day, sir ask k lng kung hndi po b tlga pwde ang postal at tin, yun lng po kc ang i.d n mron aq,gus2 k po kumuha ng passport, my sss ako kya lng form lng po yun, ndi q p nhhulugan kc wla p ako work..

  86. Sir pwede po ba pumunta sa dfa lucena para mag pasched ng appointment? Sa online po kasi wala naman nadating na appointment code. E badly needed na din po yung passport marenew. Thankyou po.

  87. Good morning po. Tanong ko lang po kung bakit wala pong nasesend na email sakin pra ma verify ko yung appoinment code ko? Salamat po.

    • I have observed a lot of people having the same problem. Baka may glitch po sila sa system nila ngayon. Are you using emails from Hotmail, MSN or Live? DFA doesn’t support these email domains yet.

    • sir parehas lkng k,me problem yahoomail po gamit ko paano po kaya yun?salamat.walang dumatingsa yahoo kona application code

    • Hi Mr. Powell,

      Kapag baby ang applicant, sure kayo yon na i-accept nila sa DFA Lucena kahit no appointment.

      Thanks!

    • Hi Francis, yes po. Walk-in (priority lane) are allowed for children, senior citizens, pregnant women and persons with disabilities. Any branch. : )

  88. Sir ask ko lng bakit kaya di ko na maview ung appointment details ko. “Appointment does not exist” daw. pero naconfirm ko nman un pagkatapos ko magregistered, then download ko pa ung form. thanks

  89. Gud day po. Kailangan po pumunta sa office ng dfa lucena to get an appointment para sa application ng new passport, tama po ba?

    Nagtry po aq mag online registration, kaya lang po kapag magco confirm na aq para s schedule, lagi po lumalabas ung caption na ‘Place of birth is required’ kahit na fill up ko naman ung field n un. Pero kapag ie edit naman hindi ma edit, d na lumalabas ung mga pagpipilian..tia

  90. hindi po yata ako aabot sa travel date ko kung irerenew ko ang passport ko. september 8, 2016 to september 11, 2016 po ang tour nmin sa hongkong. pero ang expiry date po ng passport ko ay sa october 11, 2016. allowed po ba ako magamit ko ang passport ko kahit di ko muna irenew? pag mag online application po ako im sure di ko rin ma catch up ang sked ko to hongkong. can you do any help? thank you.

    • Hi Eugene, depende po sa lugar na pupuntahan nyo kasi usually 6 months. Pero ang alam ko po, pwede yung 1 month sa Hongkong. Paki-double check nalang po. Pero tanda ko, accepted pa ang may 1 month validity kapag Hongkong. Yun nga lang make sure na hindi kayo mag-overstay kasi sakto 1 month lang yung expiration nung passport nyo. 🙂

  91. Hello sir…pwd pa po vah akong makakuha agad ng passport o pupunta jan sa lucena kahit wala po akong appointment schedule

    • Hi Apple, did you avail of the services of LBC? If not, you need to personally get your passport from the DFA. Express/rush processing means the passport will be created at a shorter time.

    • Just bring your old passport (with photocopy of data page) and acceptable IDs. If you are now married, please also bring your marriage certificate.

  110. Ask ko lng poh ulet kng accepted poh ang student license for passport

    • Congrats may sched ka na! Di naman kailangan sobrang aga. Basta dapat nandun ka na sa oras ng appointment mo. May maiksing pila pa rin para sa 3-4pm time slot. Lumang NSO copy po ba yung marriage certificate nyo? Usually, ang gusto nila ay hindi lumang-luma. Di ko lang sigurado kung nag-take effect na yung gusto ni Duterte na hindi nag-eexpire ang copy ng NSO documents. In any case, may katabing PSA Office naman yung DFA Lucena. Same day mo rin makukuha basta walang mahabang pila. 🙂

  113. Ask ko lng poh kng pde ang philheath id nbi clearance at nso para makakuha po ng passport

    • There are still several regional offices that allows walk-in. If you’re in Manila (and nearby ROs) however, you would need to set an appointment. Once you have a date, rush processing takes not less than 7 days.

    • Baby, seryoso tong tanong ko ha. Mga what time kaya dapat ako andun para sure yung appointment and processing on the same day?

    • Huy taga eLBi ka rin pala. <3 Thanks pows! 🙂

    • Nabasa ko: May 6 to pinost: “As far as I know po, wala na pong walk-in ngayun, bibigyan nalang po kayo ng application form na may date at time ng schedule kung kailan po kayo babalik to process your application po.”

    • What are my chances here? My scheduled will be on last week of June. 🙁
      Makuha ko kaya ‘to before my flight? Huehue

    • Confirm mo muna kung totoo na di na pwede walk-in. Try calling their office number. Baka kasi di ka na umabot sa flight mo kung for appointment ka pa lang.
