How to Apply for a Passport at DFA Pampanga

CITY OF SAN FERNANDO, PAMPANGA, PHILIPPINES — For non-Metro Manila residents, getting passport in DFA regional offices may not completely follow the same process as that of in Manila branches. The online appointment is not available for the provinces, and usually follows the traditional queuing method.


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 to schedule an appointment.


DISCLAIMER: Just like you, I am just a humble applicant who availed the services of the Department of Foreign Affairs and would like to share with you the process I have experienced. I have absolutely no idea on the status of your on-going application. If you badly need to follow-up, contact them at (045) 636-0007 or 636-0009.



I currently live in Bulacan (Region III), which is conveniently near both Metro Manila and Pampanga. I am one of those people who have a short timeframe between the passport application and the intended flight date. Plus, I still need to apply for visa.

With only 2 months left before my intended flight date, I have tried setting an online appointment for the DFA offices in Metro Manila. Unfortunately, the available dates are scheduled beyond my flight date. DO NOT attempt to apply as walk-in in the Manila offices, because you won’t be entertained unless you are a senior citizen, PWD, pregnant or a child (7 years & below). My last resort was to walk-in at the provincial satellite offices. However, walk-in is really not an option at DFA Pampanga because it implements a manual appointment system. Try DFA Lucena for a legit walk-in application. (UPDATE: As of May 2016, DFA Lucena have also started implementing the manual appointment system).

TIP: Apply for passport earlier even though you won’t need it yet. It helps a lot in avoiding the horrible hassles.

As of February 2016, DFA Pampanga implements a manual appointment system. 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. Go to DFA Pampanga, located at the 2nd floor of Robinsons Starmills (Arayat Gate) in San Fernando City, Pampanga. Robinsons Starmills is in front of SM City Pampanga. If you want to come very early, there is already a queue as early as 05:00 am at the back of the mall. Office hours is 10:00am to 07:00pm from Mondays to Fridays (except holidays), and 10:00am to 03:00pm on Saturdays.
  2. Line up in the queue for the appointment schedule, present your documents and have your application form stamped with the appointment date and time. This is usually after at least one (1) month.
  3. On your scheduled appointment date, there is a queue for the applicants with the same time slots. The guards/officers will collect your forms and will later return it to you with an attached queue number. Wait for your number to be called.
  4. When it is your turn, 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 Pampanga, 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 & your receipt, line up at the releasing section, and double-check the correctness of the information printed on your passport. (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!



Just to give you an idea for the timeline of my applications:

  • March 6 – get an appointment at DFA Pampanga (got an appointment schedule for April 6)
  • March 16 – attempted application at DFA Lucena (got stuck in traffic, didn’t make it thru the cut-off)
  • March 22 – attempted walk-in application at DFA Ali Mall (walk-ins are not entertained!)
  • April 6 – passport application at DFA Pampanga
  • April 20 – release date of passport (rush processing)

  15. Hi sir ask ko lang kung possible po ba ma edit yung appointment details like place of birth, made a careless mistake po kasi, medyo bago po kasi mag fill up thru online. TIA

    • Please get on online appointment for your husband. For your child, you can accompany him/her for a walk-in. Or you can set an appointment at the same date & time as your husband.

  25. Hi po! my mom is a senior citizen. the problem is hindi titanggap yung nso bc kasi iba ang nakalagay na birthplace sa nakalagay sa nbi. Mali po yung sa nso bc. We decided na e follow na lang po kung ano ang nakalagay sa nso bc. kasi hassle na, nbi lang naman ang iba, kasi pati sa police clearance same sa nso bc.

    Can we just ripped off the application form which was stapled with the requirements. and fill up new application form, since she is a senior citizen there’s no hassle for scheduling. Thank you

  26. hi po ask ko lang kung magpapa appointment ba ako this week sa pampanga at rush magtatagal pa po ba ng 1 month ung processing at releasing ng passport?wala na kase available slots na maaga sa appointment dito sa manila.thanks

    • DFA Pampanga is already under the online appointment system (same as in Metro Manila). There is a high probability that you won’t get an appointment schedule next week. You can check the available schedules online as well, just select Pampanga instead of Manila.

      Rush processing time only hastens your application into 7 working days instead of the usual 15 working days. Getting an appointment schedule is still the bottleneck.

  27. Hi sir. Tanong ko lang kukuha po ako ng passport ok lang po ba yung id’s ko ay apilyedo ko parin? Hndi pa sa husband ko bago lang po kasi kami kinasal. Thanks. Hope you’ll reply.

    • Pwede naman. But remember, you need to bring your marriage contract (NSO or PSA authenticated) para married name na ang lalabas sa passport.

  28. Hi. Just for everyone’s information. Nakapagrenew na ng passport ang dad ko (senior citizen) sa SM Megamall. Hindi siya pinayagan sa Robinson’s Galleria (strictly appointments lang daw dun at kung walk-in, OFWs lang pinapayagan) Bale walk-in siya na nag renew ng passport.

  29. Taga province of cebu po ako
    Gusto ko pong mag procces nang para passport, ano po ba nga kailanagan kong requirments po

  30. Hello sir. Ask ko lang po kukuha kasi kami ng passport ng anak ko na 1 year old.. ok lang po ba wala akong passport na ipapalita sa requirements ng anak ko kasi kukuha palang rin po ako. Sabay kami. Kasi yung father niya nasa Australia. Thanks hope you’ll reply!

  31. Hi po. May tanong lang po ako. Magpaparenew father ko (senior citizen na) ng passport. Papayagan pa rin ba walk-in nun? Thanks po.

  32. Hi.I’m aida po ask ko lng po taga pangasinan po ako may scheduled na po ako on April 5 pa po yung appointment ko sa DFA la union pa po sa march 30 pa po puwede ba ako mag walk sa pampanga kahit di ka taga don thank you po .

Dito kasi kami ni misis sa ibang bansa. pero naipadala ko na lahat sa kanila ang mga kailangan for our daughter’s passport application.

  38. Hi po…pno poh kumuha ng appointment? Thru online…tska pwd po ba ung drivers licence kya lng po rciept plang po…wla p dw po kc avail na id ang Lto

    • Hi Rosanna, the appointment procedure is already written in this article. Please read / refer to the text above. As for your ID, there are other set of acceptable IDs. LTO receipt will most likely be unhonored by DFA as a valid ID.

    • Hi ask ko lang sana kung pwedeng ung live birth certificate ang dalin ko para sa pag kuha ng passport ng baby ko kasi kakaisang taon nya palang wala pa daw ung record nya sa nso e need ko na po sya kuhanan ng passport ..

    • Hi Abigail, not sure with the live birth certificate. Better ask the DFA Office when you get there. Kapag babies, pwedeng-pwede ang walk-in. 🙂

    • Ohh thanks nag katon kasi ng prob ung Nso ng anak ko hindi naipasa ng municipal ung live birth nya sa nso last year kaya inaayos ko palang kasi now palang namin nalaman na hindi nila naipasa sa nso kaya di pa naka register anak ko till now:( e nag rrush sana kami sa passport ng bata sana payagan btw thanks

  42. Hi po! Pag daw po minor kailangan daw po kasama yung parents saka Passport Ng parents.. pano po yun Ala namang passport yung parents ko saka 18 years old nmn ako!
    pede po ba yun?

  43. Hi Marites, you need to have your birth certificate amended first before you can apply for the passport. I’m not familiar with the process, but it involves your municipal office/court & the PSA. By the way, I’m not from DFA so I won’t be the one receiving / processing your application. 🙂

  44. hi powell Tinatanggap nyo po ba yung affidavit of descripancis? Kasi po yung kinuha Kong nso ko Mali po yung apelyido ko nadagdagan po ng y sa dulo at yung birthday ko imbes na 18 naging 21 .

    • Hi, mahaba po talaga back-log ng appointment. Kung meron na syang bagong trabaho, she can get a POEA certificate then proceed to DFA Aseana for the OFW lane of passport renewal.

  46. Hello po! May alam po ba kayo na walk in lang? Need ko po makakuha ng passport by december .thanks po

    • eh sir kung i apply ko poh un anak ko ng passport 1 year old.. makakasabay kaya ako ng renew..? pra my passport na din un anak ko habang maaga at the same time nka renew ako ng maaga?

  56. Hi. So does “Manual Appointment” mean that I have to go twice to DFA Pampanga or Marquee in Angeles? I have a flight next month which I only found out yesterday and my passport is set to expire Feb of next year. I have been searching for ways to have my passport renewed the fastest way possible. Since the online appointment are all fully booked for the next 2 months…

    • Hi Jomar, wala ng manual appointment (please see update on article). It has been replaced with the full implementation of the online appointment system since June 17. 😊

  57. Yes yes.. Our passports will expire February 2017. They will arrive November 15, 2016(i’m sorry). I also clicked the link where I can set an appointment(thank you for that!) I found out how I can set an appointment. Your article’s very helpful. Kaso 🙁 ubusan nga ng slots.. December 20 onwards na yun may available, aww so much for wanting to have a trip that month. 🙁 After 15 days pa pala makukuha yung passport pag regular processing. Baka babalik na sila ng US non. 🙁 anyways, thank you for replying right away Sir Powell! 🙂

  58. Good day Sir!
    I’m from Olongapo City.
    Mag eexpire napo kasi yung passport namin (my mom, my dad, me, and my 2 sisters) sa February 16, 2017. Balak po namin mag out of the country ng November 2017 sana. The thing is, sa November 15, 2017 pa dadating un papa ko and ate ko from USA. Nabasa ko po sa tip nyo na pwede nang mag online appointment sa DFA Pampanga.

    *Does it really have to be a month before to set an appointment?
    *I mean, will it take a month before kmi babalik don after an online appointment or it depends on what appointment they will give? (na-confuse po ako don e)
    *(I’m in Olongapo)Pwde po bang ako na lang ang mag set ng appointment online for my sister and my dad na sa November 15, 2017 pa dadating? (pra po sana pag dating nila, kung bukas October 20, 2017 ako magseset ng appointment, pag dating nila makaka punta na kmi ng Pampanga sa appointment po nmn ng November 20, 2017.)

    I would really appreciate your reply. Thank you very much and God bless!

    • Hi Roi Krystle, “1 month” you are referring in the text means the available slots for appointment usually takes at least after a month. For example, you would like to apply for a passport next week, 10/24/16. The earliest available slot for appointment is usually about 1-2 months after that. “Ubusan ng slots”. Do not wait for November 2017. The earlier, the better. 😊

      By the way, passports are expiring in Feb 2017 but they will be returning in Nov 2017? They can’t travel with an expired passport. Or you meant to say Nov 2016?

  59. Sir good day
    Ask ko lang po sana kc ung son ko for renewal ng passport. 5 yrs old po. Nag set po ako ng appointment sa Marque mall by Nov 14, 2016.

    • Hi Arvin, kahit saang branch pwede mag-walk-in yung anak mo. Pwede kasi ang walk-in kapag senior, PWD, buntis at bata. Basta dapat kasama ka or yung mother kapag mag-aapply. : )

    • Hi Bonjovs, sorry hindi na sila tumatanggap ng walk-in since June 17. Kung OFW ka, pwede walk-in sa DFA Aseana, may OFW lane doon.

    • Hi Macky, if you’re an OFW, there’s a walk-in OFW lane at DFA Aseana. All branches allow walk-in only for children, pregnant, senior, PWD & gov’t employees. Otherwise, needs appointment

  71. Hi po sir, ask ko lang po sana if available ang walk in sa Dfa Aseana, gov’t employee po ako.Ok lang po kaya sir na wala na kami online application na dala pagpunta dun? kundi mga requiement na lang for renewal po kasi kami,thanks po and Godbless po 🙂

    • Hi Ana Liza, yes po any branch may courtesy lane for government employees. Di lang ako sure dun sa application form kung nagbibigay pa sila ng paper forms. Para sure, mag-download nalang po kayo & print bago magpunta. : )

  72. oo nga po sir powell siympre po bata pa ako nun, di ko na man po akalain na dadalhin ko yan problema na yan ngayun.. parang nawawalang na ako nang pag asa sir powel..

  73. Opo sir powel,tama po abg nasa birth certificate ko , bale po nag pa late registerd ako dati sa ka gustuhan kong maka pag abroad agad kaso po na fake aq, di kona po alam gagagwin ko, ayaw po mag bigay sa cvite dahil po nalabas dun na 2 record ko, ma ige pa indonisian nakakakuha ng phil passport

    • Naku mukhang mahirap nga yan sir. Conflicting po kasi kapag dalawa ang record nyo. Pero suggest ko po ayusin nyo pa rin po sya, para in the future eh hindi niyo paulit-ulit na po-problemahin. Ang gawin nyo po, kahit sa civil registry ng bataan muna kayo magtanong kung paano proseso (para hindi kayo mapalayo) bago nyo ayusin sa cavite. Next time sir, wag no po tayo agad magtitiwala sa fake. : )

  74. GudAM sir powell , bale po meron na akong NSO, FORM 1A, may problema po kasi taon sa birthday ko na nakalagay sa passport ko na dapat ay 1975 e ang nkalagay po ay 1973.. Yun po yung gusto ko ma itama na po, tenks po

  75. Sir powel gandang gabi, galing ako kanina dfa sanfernando, na deny po aq , pinapakuha po aq ng CERTIFICATE OF NO BIRTH RECORD FROM MUNICIPAL WITH READBLE SEAL, wala po kasi idea kung anu itsura non, eh sa cvite ko kukunin, e taga mariveles bataan po aq, layo n namn kung mag pabalikbalik pa ako, salamat po

    • Hi Francis. Tama ba, wala kang sinubmit na birth certificate? Kailangan po kasi talaga yun kapag mag-aapply ng passport. Now, kung wala kang birth record, kelangan mo talaga yung certificate of no birth record. Sabihin mo lang sa local civil registry nung place of birth, alam na nila kung anong document yan. Pero syempre, kelangan mo magdala ng proof/documents. Registered po ba yung birth nyo? kasi kung hindi kelangan nyo rin po ng late registration nung birth.

  76. hi sir powell ask ku lng po ung please complete the recaptcha challenge tgal kuna pu kc nagoonline passport app un pu lgi lumalbas ee wla nmn pu aq mktang recaptcha bukod dun sa ichecheck pa help lng po thanks:))

    • Hi Magz, may dalawang challenge dun sa recaptcha. Minsan click mo lang yung box “to prove you are not a robot”. Yung isa naman, may lalabas na mga picture/puzzle, tapos i-click mo lang yung mga dapat i-click. Halimbawa: Click all pictures with water. Kapag mabagal internet mo, baka di mag-load ng maayos. : )

    • Hi po..ask ko lng appointments na po ako but the problem is when i print the application it shows the month of my birthday is wrong instead of march it became february. I tried everythingn to search on how can i modified it. Baka po my idea kayo or ok lng po ba n hindi n sya baguhin sasabihin ko nlng during the appointment date na icorrect nila.mhirap po kc magcancel and get another schedule.thanks alot

    • Hello Noriena. Mukhang pwede naman sya ipa-edit/correct during your appointment, kasi pinapa-double check naman nila yung mga details habang kinukunan ka ng biometrics : )

  77. Boss powell msta po.…pag rush po ang passport na new apply po mga ilang araw ang aantayin.. Salamat po..

    • Hello richard, normally po 7 working days (hindi kasama weekends). Pero may problema na naman yata sila recently, naka-post sa site nila na magiging 20 working days muna yung regular processing, so mukhang 10 days yung rush.

  78. hi. im erica from Angeles City Pampang… bakit ganon pilit ako nag oonline appointment pag dating dun City/Municipality ko ayaw sya pilit nawawala ang Angeles City ko pero ang Province ko is Okey nman.. then nung isasave and confirm kuna sya is ang lumilumitaw is PLEASE COMPLETE THE RECAPTCHA CHALLENGE. hindi ko alam ang dpat gawin yun 20x kuna siguro inaayos ang city/province ko ayaw pa din… bat kasi inalis pa ang WALK IN nayan e… mas lalo pa nila pinatatagal ang pag kuha ng passport…


  80. sir powell gud evning poh, ask ko lang kung pwede ako mag renew sa ones stop shop para sa mga OFW, dati po akong OFW 3 yrs ago salamat poh,

  81. Hi Powell, pwede ba magwalk-in ung my mga emergency cases like..kung pagstartin ka ng maaga ng employer mo, pero kelangan mo pang i-renew ung passport..Salamat

    • Hi Grace, may OFW Lane sa DFA Aseana. Dun pwede walk-in for OFWs. Basta dapat meron kang ipakitang copy ng employment contract. : )

  82. Pede po bang mag walk in nalang kami kasi po not available na po ung time slot.. Anak ko lang naman po ikukuha ko ng passport..5yrs old po xa..aalis na po kasi ko sa sept28 kaya ung month lang ng september ang hinahanapan ko ng sked.. Kaso not available na po.. And ask ko na rin po ung requirements nya sa passport.. Ndi po ako kasal.. Thank you po..

  83. Hi po ask ko lng po pwdi po ba walk in 4yrs old anak ko at ako na mother po nya?tnx

  84. And basing it in your timeline, there is no such thing as walk in application, where your application get processed the same day? I’m also on the rush to get my passport issued. I’m planning to do a walk in by September, but from the looks of it, if I go there, I will only get a schedule for the appointment which is at least 30 days, am I correct? Which is definitely not gonna work for me. :/

  85. HI, May I ask where you got the form? And did you write the information manually since you’re walk in?

  86. Hello po . Ano po ang mga requirements kapag minor ang kukuha ng passport.. yung mother niya nasa ibang bansa. At wala syang father.


    • Gud eve po sir.tanung ko lang po kng makakakuha po b ko ng passport kng may mali na isang letra s last name ko at ung s gender ko,male kc aq per female nakalagay dun.morandarte po lastname ko.pero s nso ko po naging morandante.since nung elementary aq hanggang ngaun pati mga valid id ko ay ung lastname ko po tlga gnagamit ung morandarte.kng sakali po d aq makaavail ng passport.anu po dapat kng gawin para makakuha aq.tnx po.

  88. hi question naka fillup n po ako.ilang days ko po makikita yung notification sa email ko.wala pa kasing dumadating thanks sir

    • Hi Van, not really sure. Based from comments here, iba-iba sila ng tagal bago maka-receive ng email. Must be a problem with DFA’s system.

  89. Hello Sir Powell!
    Just wanted to confirm because when I tried to confirm my appointment by clicking the link provided on the email confirmation, it says that it has been expired or invalid.
    I just received the mail just now and it says I have 72 hours to confirm.
    Is it normal? Will I just need to print the form?
    Thanks in advance.

    • Hi Ceejay, sorry I’m not familiar. Manual pa kasi yung inabutan ko jung kumuha ako last April. Three days ago pa po ba kayo nag-apply online? Mukhang dahil late nila sinend yung confirmation, inabutan na ng expiration.

    • Hi sir. Ganun din ang namgyari sakin. Lumalabas “the link has been expired or invalid. Ask ko lang confirmed na ba yun kahit ganun lumalabas? Nagamit mo ba ung schedule appointment mo? Thanks in advance.

  90. hi sir.. tanong ko lang po pwede po bang mag walk in ang 8yr old kong kapatid at need pa ba po ba talaga ng passport ng both parents? need na po kc naming makuha ng passport

    • Hi Kathy, children 7 years & below daw po ang pwede for walk-in. Pero baka naman pwede makalusot kung 8 years old lang naman. Kelangan pong samahan ng at least 1 parent.

    • pero need pa po ba kumuha ng passport ng parents ko? para maiapply for passport ang 8yr old ko na kapatid?

    • Not necessarily. Pero dapat kasama sila during application. Aalis po ba ng bansa kapatid nyo pero di kasama parents? Remind ko lang dapat mag-secure kayo ng “travel clearance for minors going abroad without parents” bago umalis. : )

    • vacation lang naman po for 1week. bali di po kasama parents ako po makakasama nya. pano po yung travel clearance for minors going abroad without parents?

    • Sir tanong ko lang nung last august 22 pm nag fill up ako ng appointment thru online hanggang ngayon dipa ako nakakareceived ng confirmation na check kuna rin yun spam and junk ng email ko wala dun. Paano po ako maka avail ng another slot if nag aattempt ako ulit nag eexist pa raw yung dati paano ma icancel yun tnx sa magrereply.

    • Hi Gerald, mukhang may problema sila sa system. Dami rin kasi nagcocomment dito na wala pa daw sila narereceive na confirmation. After 3 days po maca-cancel yun. Check nyo today, baka pwede na. : )

    • Gud pm po san po pwd ngaun ang walk in na denied kc a sa visa na ..need ko n mag palit ng married to single e alis n dapat aq ngaung sept 19.passport lang n man need ko palitan..

  91. Hello sir asked lng po uli…kc ikukuha qpo ng passport ung ank q 5yrs old…pde po kmi s walkin kmi 2 ng ank qpo…tnx po.

  92. Yes Mr. Powell. It is really very very FRUSTRATING! And as i quote the DFA Home page :
    “The use of this online passport application system with scheduling and appointment is for the CONVENIENCE of Philippine citizens residing locally or abroad seeking to apply for a passport for the first time or intending to renew the most recently issued booklet in his/her possession.”
    * What ? WHERE IS THE CONVENIENCE HERE-?? * PAHIRAP Kamo sa mamayang pilipino! I must say the transition was/is very POOR. CAREFUL DELIBERATIONS and PROPER PLANNING was not taken cared of before implenting the new system. Well, Change is inevitable.
    ” Minsan gusto mo ng sumigaw sa kapalpakan ng gobyerno natin kaso wala kang magawa kundi sumunod na lang.”

    Just sayin my piece. Thank you sir Powell for your time.

  93. Hi Mr. Powell,
    Good morning! Been very exhausted the last 14 hours ‘coz of this online thing. Anyway, am here again for another query. ( sigh of relief- your here for answers! Thanks much!)
    Done this morning with the online schedule for my 2 kids and got the possible earliest sched sept.23 and take note where? in Baguio. Well im that Desperate .
    Now, My problem is – i didn’t receive my APPLICATION CODE. Its been almost 5 hours since my online application was confirm. I used my yahoo email add. I have done calling the APO hotline numbers but no answers. And tried to resched again online – it appears that i have a previous sched and need to cancell it first. Until when will i wait for the code?
    HELPPPP! Desperately waiting!

    • Hi Alma, a commenter here have mentioned that he received the confirmation email after about 24 hours. Wow Baguio! I guess you urgently need your passports. The current appointment system can really be a hassle sometimes. Hope the government could improve this part of the service.

    • Hello Alma,
      Have u received already the confirmation mail from the system? Almost same case with me. I just scheduled now for Sept. 23 in Baguio. APO told me to wait until 72 hrs. Hopefully, mreceive ko n xa tomorrow.

  94. Hi,
    Ask ko lang po kung tumatanggap pa ng walk in applicants sa Angeles? Maraming salamat po kung sino man po ang may alam.


  95. Hi Mr. Powell,

    Ask ko lang kung pwede mag walk in sa pampanga or any manila dfa branch for passport renewal for my 2 kids who are both below 18 years old? Need tlaga nila nang immediate renewal for visa aplication. Please need your soonest help and input on my present predicament… thanks in advance. God bless!

    • By the way mr. Powell, my kids ages -are 18 and 16 years old.

      Thanks again.

    • Hi Alma, walk-in for children are only for 7 years old and below. You still need to accompany your 16 year old though. You can set an appointment at the link described in the article above. Thanks

  96. sir powell tangap ko na po na wala ng walk-in sa metro manila ang queston ko lang po is diba hindi naman nakakarating lang ng me appointment sa kanilang schedule so nababakante sya?upon checking sa available slot everyday puro not available eto po ang tnong ko me chance po ba na ang isang not available na schedule ay magkaroon uli ng available slot parang sa airplne as in chance passenger?

    • Hi Avhel! Sorry, I’m not sure about that. Usually kasi, yung sa next time slot na yung pinapapasok. Example, if tapos na agad yung 11am, papapasukin na yung 12nn kahit di pa time.

  97. Okay sir. by the way, Is it true that if I will not confirm it for 24 hours my application for appointment will expire?

  98. Thanks po sir po for reply..asked lng po uli…mgapply po kc un cousin q ng passport pregnant po cya ei.db po pde cya s walkin..anu po b un documents n proof n ddlin nya s dfa n buntis cya if ever 3mnths plng tyan nya.bka kc icpin d cya buntis kc dpa gnu klki p un tyan nya.thanks po.

  99. Sir Good day!
    I already made my appointment yesterday(08/22/2016) by October 7, 2016, but still not yet received any confirmation email with regards to my appointment.
    I used my company email as my email address.

    • Not really sure, but maybe you should have used GMail or Yahoo, because the system currently doesn’t support SOME email domains. Recently though, I’ve been receiving a lot of comments about not receiving a confirmation. MAYBE it has something to do with a glitch in their system.

    • Robert – I made my appointment yesterday 08/23 and received confirmation today. When I registered, I selected Oct. 6, 7am as it was the earliest available but in the confirmation email i received, I was scheduled Oct. 5 2pm.

  100. Hi po…asked lng po my appointmnt sched npo aq s pmangga on Oct. Sa Robinson pmpngga po b aq ppnta kc ala po nklgy qng san s pampngga.. confirmed lng po.tnx

  103. hi sir pa ano ba ang magandand gawin mali po ang year ng bday ko sa passport 1973 ang tama po ay1975 renew lang po ang passport ko na expierd sia nung 2013.madali lang po ba sia ayusin anu po requirements, tenks po

    • San po ba kayo manggagaling? Just ride any bus going to San Fernando, Pampanga. DFA Pampanga is in Robinsons Starmills. Processing time is written in the article, please read.

    • Pati ba red ribbon authentucation kelangan mag set din ng appointment sa alimall?

  105. Meron pa po bang DFA na nag-aallow ng walkins? Lipa or other satellites?
    Lost my passport, also expired. and sudden surprises, I needed to secure a passport within a week or 2. Thanks sa help 🙂

    • up ko lang po.. baka po meron kayong suggestion .. 🙂 thanks po

    • I see. that’s sad. Hindi kasi ako OFW, but I can secure a letter of invitation for Company Business Trip Request. pwede ko siguro i-try yang sa ASEANA.
      do you have idea if it’s on first-come first-serve basis?
      Thanks again : )

    • I think the courtesy lane for OFWs is on a first-come first-served basis. I’m just not sure of the documents needed. But most likely, they’ll need to see the employment contract. Good luck!

  106. Sure na po yung wala ng walk in sa dfa san fernando? Kase ang sabi po sa akin pag maaga pumunta tumatanggap sila ng walk in, first 500 daw po tas yung di aabot dun is yun yung kukuha na ng appointment. Pls answer po asap. Kailangan ko lang po talaga malaman agad. Thank you.

  107. Pwede po ba jan nlng po ako kukuha sa pampangga kahit appoinment ko sa alimall valid naman po for 1 month yung appoinment ko but my problem po is hndi nila tinanggap lahat ng mga support documents ko kahit nbi ko sabi po ksi hndi daw po mahirap kumuha sa pampangga

    • Your appointment is valid only to the branch where you made your appointment. I haven’t heard of the 1 month validity of appointment 🙂

  108. Good day sir,tanong ko lang kung pwede magwalkin kung ang kukuhanan ko ng passport ang 2 kids ko na 9yrs old at 1 yr.old? san po pwede magwalkin branch if ever?need na kasi namin by 1st week ng october para sa visa.thank you!

  109. Sir Powell Abogado ask ko lang po kung pede pa po ung walkin applicants sa DFA lucena? salamat po

    • HI Powell!:) Nabasa ko sa isang blog bawal daw magparush sa dfa pampanga, 35 days daw processing talaga? How true is this naka schedule kasi ako ng october 6 at 4pm 🙂

    • Not sure kung saan galing yung 35 days. Yung “rush” po na tinutukoy dito is “express” na paggawa ng passport after mong pumunta sa appointment date. Standard time ng DFA yung 7 days for rush (P1200), 15 days yung normal (P950) after appointment date.

    • Good day po sir…ask ko lang po kung pwede walk in pagkuha passport kasama ko 4yr old at 8 yr old mga anak ko.? thank you po

  110. Hi Powell, ask ko lang if yung (rush processing) kaya ng 7 days kasi based from your experience april 6 ka nagapply for renewal pero apr 20 pa narelease.

  111. Sir tanong ko lang kung pwede mag walk in september 11 sa pampanga? Kase puno sa onkine. Next year pa may available slot

    • Hi Imee, di na po nag-aaccept ng walk-in dun unless you are pregnant, PWD, senior citizen or a child. If OFW ka, may OFW lane sa DFA Aseana.

    • Hi Powell, ask ko lang if yung (rush processing) kaya ng 7 days kasi based from your experience april 6 ka nagapply for renewal pero apr 20 pa narelease.

  112. Good day. I am 2months pregnant. Ikukuha ko ng passport yung anak kong 6y.o. at asawa ko. Di naba kailangan ng appointment pag ganon? Pati yung husband ko? Ty po

    • Ikaw & yung anak nyo po, pwede walk-in. Di ko lang sigurado sa husband nyo. Last time kasi, may nakasabay ako sa DFA Pampanga. Hindi pinayagan yung kasama nung matanda. Sayang nga naman kasi nandun na rin naman. Pero di talaga sya pinayagan.

  113. sir maisingit ko lng po.. pati po ba ung pagpaparedribbon ng nbi meron na din po sa pampanga? anu po req at mgkanu po kya? thank you po 😊😊😊

  114. Good Afternoon! Sir ask lang po, last June 9 nagpa appointment ako Kay dfa aseana i present digitized postal I’d as my valid I’d,then suddenly denied ang aking application, d daw tumatanggap ang dfa ng postal I’d,since marami na xa security features nakakalungkot. lang, even resibo ni LTO d rin inacept,which is kasalanan ni LTO wala sila available card same as SSS marami pa ako ids such as tin I’d,philhealth,company I’d,barangay I’d,medical I’d ang problem lahat laminated which is digitized I’d LNG daw ang tinatanggap.this sept na ang aking appointment Kay dfa pampanga.. wala pa aking sss at lisensya.. accepted na po ba mga ids ko sir? Thank You.

  115. hello, sir POWELL ABOGADO saan po merong df ang pewede pa walk in applicants…please need your reply asap

  116. Hi,

    Ask ko lang if needed ba talaga ang NSO BC for renewals lang? Based kasi sa DFA website wala naman sa general requirements. And also, senior citizens and child below 7 years old okay lang na walang appointment and walk-in lang?

    Thank you!

    • Yes po, NSO/PSA dapat ang birth certificate. Yung senior & children, pwedeng-pwede po mag-walk-in. Nasa priority lane din po sila. 🙂

  117. Hi thank you so much for your response. Its such a big help. Ngayon ko lang kasi talaga nalaman about the green clearance kaya di ako aware. Im really running out of days kasi para sa sched ko sa aug 2 sa dfa pamp. Thank you! I only have here my nso nbi local clearance alumni id and my recent id in college. Okay naba yon? Thanks and Godbless

  118. Sir taga cavite po ako and my online appointment ako this coming sept 7 s dfa pamapanga for renewal of passport, but then sir I need the passport bago mag aug 15, posible po kaya maentertain ako kahit indi ko p sked? Thank you.

    • Hi tanong ko lang sana kung need ba ng nbi sa requirements sa passport? If ever na oo,okay lang ba na ung local na nbi ang pakita ko? The orange one. Kasi wala pa ako nung pang international na green eh kung magpapa renew ako 1 week pa ang lilipas since may ka hit ako eh may schedule nako sa passport on august 2 thank you

    • Hi, Vanessa! Will you be able to attend your September 7 appointment? I am desperate to get my passport renewed since I have a sudden trip abroad and I still need to acquire Visa. I was wondering if you won’t be able to attend it, if I could attend your slot instead? 😞😞

  119. Sir powell ask q lang po ksi my sched n kme sa dfa alabang town center but sobrang tgal october 4 pa nid n po nmn ng wife q ng passport new applicant lang po kme!..laguna po kme mgagaling..mas mbilis po b process sa dfa pampanga?..ung manual appointment schedule palng mkukuha nmn?..

    • Sa tingn ninyo po mas mbilis ba ang manual appointment kysa sa online appointment ksi october 4 p kme!..and base sa application timeline ninyo 1 month mahigit lang. bgo ninyo nakuha ung passport ninyo!..thank u po

  120. gud afternoon po ..ask ko LNG po paano mag online sa dfa pampangga..

  121. hello po kuya powell pwede pa po ba ang walk in sa lucena? need po kase rush makuha passport .. thanks po rply

    • hello po.. ask ko lang po kung ihohonor pa po kaya ng DFA Pampanga ung appointment schedule ko na nka set ng July 22, 2016 khit na ngbago na sila ng appointment system nung June? May 21 kasi ako ngwalk in dun at nkakuha ng appointment ng July 22.

  122. Ask ko lang kung di pde ang walk in kahit government employee. May courtesy lane kasi for gov’t employee before. At tska kasama ko father ko mag apply he is a senior citizen di ba ako pwede as walk in kahit kasma ko naman sya.

  123. Hello, I just want to clarify a. If u get an appointment online do u need to go back for the application proper? Or yun appointment online is the application proper na. Medyo naguluhan kc ako, I opted for DFA Pampanga kc I will be going abroad and upon checking, my passport was detached na pala so I need to renew ASAP.

    • You need to make an online appointment, then you need to go to the DFA office on the date you chose for the actual application

  124. Pwede bang ipa-cancel yung LBC at kunin ko nalang personally sa dfa pampanga passport? Thank you!

    • Sorry po, not sure. Kailangan nyo po ba within the day of release? Better call the LBC office. I think may number dun sa receipt

  125. Hi Powell,
    Pwede po bang magpa-appointment and mag-apply ng passport sa DFA Pampanga ang mga taga-Laguna and taga- Manila?

  126. Ang ng workmate ko na kaka-kuha lang ng passport nia last month kapag renewal lang pwede walk this true?

  127. hello poh may walk in appointment p po ba sa dfa lucena ngayon??

    • Hi Janith. Sorry wala na pong walk-in sa DFA offices ngayon, unless you are pregnant, a senior citizen or a child. Thanks for the visit!

    • Not sure. I’m not working for the DFA, just like you. If you are scheduled on that date, try calling their phone number first. It’s written in the article. Better be sure. 😉

  129. Hi sir powell. Ask ko lang panu mag punta ng dfa rco pampanga? Taga bulakan, bulacan din ako. At nagreply cla skin thru email for my schedule on july 26 , 3pm. Gano kaaga ko dpat pumunta? Saan? Paano mkakarating dun? Khit from manila saan ang way ko. Please help me. Salamat tlga.

    • Hi Sir, if from Bulakan, Bulacan ka galing sakay ka nalang sa may Tabang, dun sa ilalim ng tulay. Pwede ka antay ng bus papuntang San Fernando, or pwede ka rin sumakay dun sa terminal ng van papuntang San Fernando (nagbababa sila sa Robinsons). Okay lang kahit gaano kaaga, basta nandun na dapat kayo sa RCO ng 3pm. 🙂

  130. Sir pano po ba mag pa appointment sa DFA pampanga diko po kasi makita.
    Thank you.

  131. Hi Sir, as of today hindi na sya manual appointment, tama po ba? Nakakuha po kasi ako ng slot sa online appointment for next week. Am I guaranteed na maeentertain ako on that date and time? Looking forward to your reply. Thanks.

  132. hi .. where i can find a dfa office that can entertain a walk in applicant? i badly need a passport …

  133. Hi Powell,

    Release date ng passport mo is Apr20, what date mo sya nareceived? Through delivery b or pumunta k ulit s Pampanga to pick it up? Thank you!

    • Hi Heidee, I went personally to Pampanga to pick it up kasi I urgently need the passport. If you’ll use the courier service, it would take an additional 1-3 days.

    • Hi Rose! As of March 2016, they still do accept walk-in applicants. Pero mas maganda tawagan nyo yung DFA Lucena, to confirm kung pwede pa rin walk-in hanggang ngayon. Para naman di po masayang pamasahe at effort nyo. Please find their contact number on this article:

  134. Hi po andto po ako now sa manila pro im from pangasinan pwde po kya ako mg walk in sa dfa lucena

  135. Hi Powell! Thank you so much! Are you sure na napayag pa sila ng walk in sa Lucena? I’ll go there tomorrow. 🙁

    • Hi, yes they do. I also went there, pwede naman daw sabi nung guard. Basta punta ka lang maaga. 10am na kasi ako nakarating on a weekday, inabutan na ako ng cut-off. First 500 applicants lang pina-process nila per day.

  136. Hi Powell! I’m from Cavite and same tayo ng case. My flight date is scheduled on June 19 pero yung appointment ko sa DFA Alabang is still at July 09. Pwede ba mag walk in sa Pampanga kahit di ka taga dun? And so after mo pumila ng maaga at 5am sa Pampanga, they will ask you to come again at the scheduled date? (meaning hindi pa mapaprocess yung application mo same day?) Thanks! I’m so desperate!!! 🙁 Will appreciate your response.

    • Hi Sarah, I suggest wag ka na sa DFA Pampanga kasi walang walk-in dun. Manual appointment kasi dun eh (di tulad ng online appointment sa NCR), meaning mas matagal pa makukuha mong schedule. Sa DFA Lucena, pwede walk-in but you should come really early (madaling araw). Maaga kasi pumipila mga tao dun, as early as 10am cut-off na. And mas malapit ka sa Lucena compared sa Pampanga. 🙂
