    if she is a government employee and has an id she could just walk in and fall in line on the government employees lane, which should be a short line. and no need for a schedule in advance. same applies for senior citizens

    1 week lang nakaschedule ka na at matatapos half day. Try the new electronic passport mas maikli ang pila.

    I did not get the electronic pasport but yung standard. nainggit ako sa naka electronic. walang tao sa pila :)

    matagal ngayon kahit sa mga probinsya, exept kung senior citizen ka, ako akala ko mabilis dahil nandito ako sa cagayan de oro nag apply ganun din more than one month bago ang schedule, they only allow 200 max persons a day.

    I applied for the renewal of my passport last February through the DFA website and my appointment for the processing of the application was scheduled on June 24. They said there were a number of glitches in the electronic passport system. The passport will be issued around 10 working days after the appointment; sometimes longer.

    According to the travel agency used by my office, my current non-electronic passport will not be recognized in a number of countries, specially in Europe. I was able to use it to travel to Hong Kong in April but that's about as far as I can go at the moment.

    I'm not sure, but from what I remember old-style passports issued after a particular date - I'm not sure about the date either - will not be honored anymore. In my case my passport was issued after the cut-off date, so I had to get an electronic one.

    If that's the case, plan way ahead before you travel. The DFA is switching to machine-readable passports and you have to have your fingerprints taken electronically. From what I learned, this process takes longer than the old passport. Machine-readable passports also give the user a lot of convenience at the immigration counter.

    Nagkagulo ang mga travel agencies with regards to appointments mula nung lumipat ang DFA sa MOA.

    Pilipinas Teleserv pa din ang pinaka mabilis....Yata.
