Caloocan news regarding passports:

================================

The Caloocan City government will offer mobile passport services as part of the celebration of the city’s 50th foundation anniversary offered by Mayor Enrico Echiverri to local residents.

The Civil Registry Department (CRD) of the city will be accepting passport applications starting February 2 up to March 2, 2012. This means that the local resident may no longer go to the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) to get their passport.

Aside from this, the local residents may also be able to renew their existing passports by submitting the necessary application to the CRD of either the main city hall or north city hall.

With the mobile passport service, city residents can now save time, money and energy in going to the DFA.

Applicants may just contact the CRD (324-5126 or 288-8811 local 2249) to know what documents they need to bring in going to the office.

The appearance/final evaluation of the passport applications will be done by the DFA on March 17.

After payment, residents with approved applications will wait for two weeks before getting their passports.

Applicants may bring documents birth certificate (certified true copy), proof of identity, and citizenship papers.
